The original MBT-1 has proven itself domestically by repeatedly turning cars and trucks and protecting workers. Displayed at Fort Leonard Wood, the MBT-1 was hailed as a “long overdue force protection” by military personnel. A special MBT-1m version was designed specifically for security and defense applications. With around 1,000,000 lbs. (4450000 N) of sheer strength and up to 9 feet (2.7 meters) tall, the MBT-1m can stop a car, pickup or straight truck in a direct 90 degree impact of at least 45 mph (72 kmh). It’s capable of stopping or deflecting even more, particularly when angled to the approach. The MBT-1m will withstand small arms fire and can provide higher levels of blast protection.
