The Rook is custom designed with mission specific attachments that increase job safety, while also improving the ease and speed of changing attachments. The Armored Deployment Platform (ADP) allows officers to approach a structure without covering open exposed ground on foot.
Officers easily gain entry to the second story of a house, building or hellicopter without a ladder, allowing them to search the area from the top down without using stairways to work their way up. The ADP is also used to deploy snipers to a rooftop.
