Although the police car was completely scrapped, the security guard was lucky. Fortunately, the auxiliary tank of the F-15 fighter jet is not suspended. If the auxiliary fuel tank is hung, and the loss of the battle opportunity worth tens of millions of dollars will not be mentioned, the security personnel’s life will definitely not run.
