Cartel Armoured Vehicles Destroyed in Tamaulipas Mexico

Cartel Armoured Vehicles Destroyed in Tamaulipas Mexico


Mexican authorities have seized and destroyed 10 cartel monsters (armoured vehicles). The Attorney General’s Office of the State of Tamaulipas announced that these vehicles amount to a total of 365 monsters seized in the state of Tamaulipas from 2018-2023. The cartel monsters began appearing in Mexico in 2010, primarily with the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas. Since then they have become a prominent part of Mexico’s low-intensity conflict being used in confrontation between cartels and the state.

As seen in the images posted from the seizure the monsters vary from pick-up trucks and SUVs with bulletproof armour, to fully-fledged narco-tanks with amateur, large-scale, metal casings. The narco-tanks can be understood to have more attacking-based modifications with a large metal spike at the front of the vehicle.
