Description
3D model of the AT police equipment. The equipment consists of a haubergeon, hand and leg guards, strong goggles, coif, doble baston (one set being 2 regular rubber sticks, the other set consisting of one rubber stick and one electric shock baton, a bag to store the bastons, handcuffs, a single action percussion cap revolver and a mortar.

The haubergeon is made using a rigid frame with movable parts (allowing the user to put the frame with mail on. The movable parts are secured using some rope. A frame was used to allow mass-production (as a set of sizes as S, M, L, XL, ... can be made fitting any person). Also, the use of the frame ensures that besides chain mail/woven mail (a combination is used in the model to reduce cost), other textiles can be fitted to the frame allowing protection even from bullets.

The electric shock baton does not use a voltage amplifier circuit

The handcuffs are made as simple as possible and are made of a durable textile such as hemp, jute, ... Leather is preferably not used, since it is more prone to tearing, and is often also made using toxic chemicals, which may affect the skin. In addition, plant-based textiles also have a much lower carbon footprint than animal-based textiles (especially from animals as cows).

The revolver is made very simple and reliable. It was based on the howstuffworks animation. However, some changes were made making the mechanism single action rather than double action (as in the animation). The current design requires the hammer plate to be pulled back manually using the thumb; the second spring then engages locking it, and pulling the trigger unlocks it again, causing the hammer plate to knock on the percussion cap, which in turn ignites the gunpowder. Also, a MiniƩ ball was used rather than a simple ball, and simple 3-groove rifling was used in the barrel. The gunpowder and MiniƩ ball is loaded via the front of the drum, and the percussion cap is inserted via the back of the drum.

The revolver is intented mostly as a lethal weapon, ie for use against wild animals, ... It is not intented for use against people; instead, for this less-lethal ranged weapons can be used (see the Hunting weapons model)

The mortar finally is intented not as a means to fire explosive projectiles, but rather for propelling projectiles with incapacitating agents. An other use is for firing ropes ie from vessels (ie for mooring, towing other vessels, MOB-procedure, ...) It uses compressed air. The compressed air tank is marked in purple, the compressor is marked in pink. The mortar is controlled by an operator sitting in seiza behind the control panel.
