Set in a zombie apocalypse world somewhere in Chennai, India.
News report shows an estimated 90% of the population here has turned into zombies overnight, soldiers setup a human chain perimeter blockade and a kill order has been given to terminate any trespasser with extreme prejudice.
Those infected show aggression and violence even unprovoked, they seem to lose their mind and will even attack family members and friends. They are alert to sounds and study shows they could complete a marathon in 2 hours. A zombie bite is considered to be extremely contagious and any bodily contact must be avoided at all costs!
As an escape on foot seems impossible. What kind of land vehicle could the survivors drive to reach safety in the neighboring city from a curious horde of zombies as well as stray bullets from SAF Carbine 9mm 2A1? Retrofit must be realistic and no military vehicles are allowed.
I'm thinking of an SUV (fuel type: diesel) and with metal drain grates tied all over the chassis including the windscreen. Would it work or should I hijack an ambulance instead?
