VEHICLES OF NCPD
These are the standard vehicles used by the Night City Police Department.



CHEVROLET TOMCAT INTERCEPTOR/CRUISER:
NCPD recently switched to the Tomcat, it was deemed that an American company would generate more trust in the public eye, the Tomcat is also more maneuverable and faster than its competitors, with the possible exception of the Max Interceptor.  Visually the Tomcat is stunning, and this puts it in good favor with the corps.  It also includes all the most standard options of a police vehicle.

LAMBO-FIAT AUTOBAHN-ENFORCER:
Desinged spcifically as a high speed interceptor for the autobahn in europe, NCPD recently obtained 3 of these supercars.  The Tomcat is one hell of a vehicle, it is fast, tough and maneuverable, but sometimes you just need more, especially with the influx of Japanese Bozuka and nomad speed machines.  Thats where this beauty comes in.  with a top speed of 220 mph and a reinforced body wrapping bumper/ram plate, very little can escape.  Unfortunately with a price tag of over 160,000eb, the department most often uses these vehicles for publicity events.  Only one ever actually sees active patrol duty.

HARLEY DAVIDSON "CHASER":
While most police departments are switching to the new Kundalini "Torpedo" (Chrome 3), NCPD finds that the "Chaser" fits its role fine, and at least keeps things normal while the transition to the Torpedo is being implemented.  While NCPD does have a meager amount of Torpedo's, the Chaser is the most common police bike on the streets.

SWAT DELIVERY VEHICLE:
This vehicle is basically a military APC outfitted to serve the needs of SWAT and C-SWAT.  While normally an AV-6 is used for the role of insertion these do serve their purpose for lighter situations, or when a full scale operation is underway, and their aren't enough AV's to go around.   There is a second version, which serves a a communications unit, for times when the Militech IVa CMC is unavailable.

MILITECH "HORSE":
This vehicle is generally relegated to Bomb Disposal, although it has head some service with the Riot Squad, SWAT, and C-SWAT.  It is a fairly large vehicle, armored and with enough cargo space to hold a "Musashi" mini-tank as demonstrated above, although in general this space is used to store a bomb disposal trailer, and a robotic detection and disposal unit.  The large cannon on top is deemed necessary as the various units are often deployed in hostile environments.  For Riot squad purposes the cannon is exchanged with a high pressure water cannon, and half the cargo space is taken up by a water tank.

MILITECH "POLICENAUGHT" ACPA:
Built on the Goddard chassis, this ACPA was specifically designed for SWAT.  Not as heavily armored or as strong as the Bladerunner or Constable, it is more than adequate at dealing with the standard breach and clear situations SWAT usually finds itself in.

CONSTITUTIONAL ARMS/ARASAKA "CONSTABLE" ACPA:
This model beats out its competitor, the Arasaka "Bladerunner" due to its lesser offensive capabilities and dual role qualifications.  The "Constable can act either as C-SWAT assualt, or as RIOT control support.  This is the first ACPA ever built to include the Nauseator riot control device as part of its arsenal, and so far this test has proved a success.  The "Constable" utilizes the new Datafilm interface, and also makes use of the Landmate system (see SHIROW CONVERSIONS), and while this makes it a tad more expensive than the "Blade runner the positives far outway the negatives.  The constable has generated lots of positive response from both the media and the pblic, although a few of the die hard groups are still opposed to any armed polive vehicle.  While the Unit incorporates a flight unit, it is really only capable of making short powered leaps, the swimmers which can be interchanged with the flight unit are much more effective.

ARASAKA "BLADERUNNER" ACPA
While normal cops, SWAT, and Riot Control get the Arasaka Constable, C-SWAT needs something with a little more "oomph".  They get the Bladerunner.  The Bladerunner is built on a slightly stronger chassis, the Guges-G, which still isn;t as powerful as the Guges-H military combat model used for the Kurosawa.  However, this suit boasts more than enough power to stop almost any threat an officer might find himself involved in.  Using the tried and true Guges type Landmate design and Datasuit interface as well as Arasaka's VRI, this suit is fast and lethal, and it has plenty of room left in the arms and legs for customization.  In addition to C-SWAT duties, this ACPA is also quite popular in mercenary circles.
