The close support protection vehicles look deadly serious...

It's 2020. I expected the back door to fall off, and the nuke fall out on a gurney a la Homer Simpson.

My military Operational Skill was 54B50 with ASI of L-3 and L5, the L-3 ASI was for Technical Escort. There are two ways they move Nuclear Warheads or Weapons in the United States, for Short distance transportation fissile materials or Warheads are moved like the zvideo shows. However, for interstate transport weapons grade materials or Warheads are moved in a clandistein manner in unmarked 18 Wheelers. In this case the vehiclescthat are guarding the vehicle are not obvious, they consist of black SUVs located at different locations along the route, along with vehicles at staggered positions in front and behind the 18 Wheeler that do appear to be following it. I have been involved in Escort Operations on two occasions in the United States during my military career. 

My job along with members of team where responsible to assist with security, and in the case of a accident I was responsible to evaluate the situation and condition of the material being hauled. In the event of a damage to the warhead or materials I was responsible for the initial containment procedures and for the evacuation of civilians in the danger zone. In both movements I was involved in, the movements went off without any issues. Americans would be surprised how these materials are sometimes moved. So when that next 18 Wheeler passes you on the highway always give then the right away, because you never know what they may be carrying!!:yes::tu:

No actually they are unmarked and designed to blend in, with the normal flow of traffic. The vehicle in the video you posted certainly would not blend in!:P

Here is something for you to read, or use as future reference, it completely explains my Military Occupational Specialty ( MOS ) that I worked in for 23 years of active duty, and 10 years as US Contractor..

Well of course it "blends-in"... until a major threat is detected; one can't tell any difference between it and a regular SUV until the roof opens up and the mini-gun and operator pops out and lays down the ring of death.

But thank you for the link. I will read it.

Love military stuff, and thank you for your service.

I remember about 10 years ago a truck with a nuclear warhead being transported on the highway went missing in Texas.  I can't remember what actually happened but I think they foujnd the truck with the device still in it abandoned in Oklahoma.  It was not being transported by military for some reason.  But then my memory is fuzzy.  I need to look it up.

Well, I found this but this is not what I was thinking of
