Ground Force One - I'd like to see it on a scale

Just saw a bit on Yahoo about the Presidential armored bus (RV) called Ground Force One. With all the armoring Id sure like to see it go across a scale!

What type driver's license do you think it will require for the driver?

True story: A driver hauling an M-1 Abrams to the dock for shipment overseas was running a bit late (He had dallied with his sweetie) when he passed a Michigan State Police Motor Carrier officer.

Well, the "Diesel Smokey" pulled him over, checked his permits, found out he was not permitted for that hour or that road (he was way overweight which is why he had special permits) and issued a ticket.

The fine... Let's just say if the officer had taken the rest of the year, and quite likely the next year, off with pay..... The state would still have come out ahead.
Home is where I park it!

The two Secret Service motorhomes (they are not exclusively for Presidential use) are already discussed in the thread linked below, so this one is being closed as a dunplicate.
