Defender in NYPost SWAT Team Article - Pine Bluff, AR

http://nypost.com/2013/09/08/swat-te...fter-shootout/

I highly doubt this picture is from the actual SWAT Team that stormed the Pine Bluff, Arkansas home of a 107 year old man who had taken people hostage, but it's still a cool pic.

Other than the Defender, that could be the worst pic ever.

Loving the ACU's...(kidding). No D content, but in terms of bad SWAT pics this is a fav:

I think they just found a stock picture and ran with it.

The front post being there probably isn't a wrong, since a lot of departments require the immediate availability of iron sights, in case the batteries fail in the optics (which they often do)

I bet the photo isn't even in the US...Don't know any federal or state units with the good taste to use an armoured Defender...and the lack of any markings on the gear whatsoever - not even "POLICE" - I don't know anyone who does that, since it opens up way too many opportunities for the shit-bags to say they didn't think it was the popo kicking in their door...

Concur about it potentially being outside the US. Interesting file photo to be sure.
