A Springfield-based military police company will be training with a new armored vehicle in the area this week.
The Illinois Army National Guard says training with the new Armored Security Vehicles will start Thursday and run through Sunday.
Staff Sgt. Daniel Becker says the vehicles were designed to keep soldiers safe. They have the safety features of other vehicles on the road — like turn signals, brake lights and headlights — but the driver's view is limited by the armor.
A licensed trained driver will be along for the training this week.
The vehicles are large, but only require one traffic lane.
Becker says people shouldn't be afraid when they see the armored vehicles on the road.

So they are designed to protect soldiers, since when do military vehicles need turn signals and brake lights lol?
Funny stuff, more like a test run to see how they will do in public American streets.
