The Barack Mobile C1, the 'ultimate vehicle on the planet' also has the US nuclear launch codes and the nuclear switch for the President. It can withstand chemical or germ warfare and even a bomb attack.
The Cadillac One limousine, also called the C-1 or simply ‘The Beast'. The president will travel in the “most-protected” seven-tonne vehicle on city's roads.
Built by General Motors, it is the latest in the line of Cadillacs, and given its special character and features — like a body of military grade steel armour — it is the most protected vehicle in the world.
The windows of ballistic glass are said to be five inches thick. The car houses the American nuclear command control.
Obama's trip to India will be the biggest by any US President — with a staggering 40 aircraft and six armoured cars.
The huge security operation comes days after a suspected bomb was found on a cargo plane at East Midlands Airport.
The President himself will be ferried around in a black Cadillac — dubbed Barack Mobile.
The vehicle has its own built- in communications centre to
enable Obama to be in touch with the White House, the US Vice- President and the US strategic command.
The car also has the US nuclear launch codes and the nuclear switch for the President. It can withstand chemical or germ warfare and even a bomb attack.
The secret service will set up two command posts in Delhi and Mumbai, which will act as the communication nerve centres.
These centres will keep an eye on each movement of the President with real- time satellite monitoring.
Three Marine One choppers will be reassembled in India to ferry Obama and his family. Thirty sniffer dogs will also be pressed into service to boost the security arrangements.
