Riot Car Shoots Water, Bullets or Poison Gas (May, 1938)
Riot Car Shoots Water, Bullets or Poison Gas
ON the cover of the current issue appears our artist’s conception of a riot car just patented by Victorino L. Tunaya, of Brooklyn, New York. This vehicle is provided with a number of discharge nozzles through which powerful streams of water or liquid gas can be projected on rioting groups of persons. In event of very serious trouble, machine guns may be mounted in the turrets instead of hose nozzles to deal with rioters with greater finality. Two
huge tanks contain the liquid, which is driven through the nozzles by a pump.
