Most amazing hunting vehicle of all time....

Found this link to a Maharaja's 1925 Rolls Royce hunting car built to hunt Tigers.....pretty classy, complete with machine gun and cannon.

That would be the cat's meow for chasing jackrabbits across the prairie.

I'll stick with my horse when I hunt, but Dang that car is Sweet.

I don't thing my horse would enjoy pulling the cannon, but I can always hitch up my wife's Shires.

Those Maharajah's think of everything.....wonder how many families were "compensated"?

Rajahs and pukka sahibs only, it seems.....

Kotah was a fairly progressive Princely State, with decent schools and hospitals, at least for some if not all.
