Here we have a mighty new machine from China. This is the Shaanxi SX6100 SPF, nicknamed the ‘Desert Tank’. It is a bus-like vehicle based on a 6×6 Dongfeng truck chassis, made for all-terrain duty in the desert. Shaanxi just sold twenty SX6100’s to security services in the great country of Kazachstan where they will be used for ‘anti-terrorism-patrol’ in the vast empty deserts in the east, near the border with China’s Xinjiang Province.
