STORM CHASERS The wildly known Discovery Channel series “Storm Chasers” is taking cover of some of the nature’s incredibly destructive storms for another season. The Storm Chasers team goes and hunts down tornados during the peak tornado months using their Tornado Intercept Vehicle II (TIV II). These scientists keep themselves safe and gaining a better understanding of the gigantic tornados using this unique truck that depends on the toughness and extreme dependability of OPTIMA Batteries to power up both the half tank, half mobile science vehicle laboratory and the across the board equipments inside.
The TIV II also known as Tornado Intercept Vehicle II started as a 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab 4x4. It was then modified into a 6x6, steel-plated shooting platform for a 100-pound IMAX camera. This half tank, half laboratory vehicle took nearly eight months to create and weighs approximately seven tons.
The TIV II that uses OPTIMA batteries features a rugged and protective armor together with scientific instrumentation and one-of-a-kind gadgets integrated into the vehicle. Amazingly, 16 OPTIMA batteries are powering up both the equipments inside and the truck to match up the destructive power of Tornados.
