  4. Heh. You wouldn’t need nails (I don’t think those wheels inflate anyways). Rocks would do…throw enough on the ground in front of them, and those things get all tippy :)

  7. The improbability of that deployment being successful… Recoil, one wobble and the squad getting shot up. Not to mention that each one of these guys just looks like he needs to pee so bad. Perhaps they hope to subdue the terrorists while they are giggling.
