How many armored vehicles are around the world?
Exact figures are difficult to compile but based on those in the industry and their estimates about 25,000 armored vehicles are produced each year, including civilian (passenger), commercial (Cash in transit (CIT) – 30,000 in use in U.S. alone), municipal (Police, Service, etc.) and military (APC’s, hummers, etc.). The average life is 10 years civilian and 6 years for the others. 100,000+ is a more than reasonable estimate.
