Peacekeeper at Francis E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming.

The fact that the Peacekeeper was an armored civilian truck can be gleaned from its appearance. Vision blocks were provided in the passenger compartment; firing ports were available to the front, rear, and sides; and a winch was mounted on the front. A roof hatch allowed access to armament if it was fitted, in this case a 7.62mm M60 machine gun. Note also the roof-mounted siren/speaker and flashing lights. These men were part of the 90th Security Police Group. (Picture taken 25 July 1983 by MSG Buster Kellum; available from the National Archives.)

Sandbag protection has been added to the front, and sensors and a yellow strobe for MILES wargaming gear can be seen on the vehicle. A stowage box is mounted on the front bumper. The headlight apertures have been reduced, but extra driving lights can be seen on the bumper, and spotlights are visible on both the empty machine gun mount and the roof. In this image, members of the 52d Civil Engineering Squadron are evaluating runway damage during Exercise Salty Demo '85. (Picture taken 29 April 1985; available from the National Archives.)
