This page of the guide to Mafia Definitive Edition informs how to destroy the police armored vehicle in mission 10 – A Trip to the Country. You need to stop the armored vehicle to complete the chase sequence and lose the police.
If you have problems with other parts of A Trip to the Country mission, check out our walkthrough of mission 10.
The armored police vehicle appears in the second part of mission 10 (A Trip to the Country), specifically after Tommy and Paulie put the badly injured Sam in a truck. The escape from the farm triggers a large police chase.
In addition to bulletproof armor, the police vehicle also has a machine gun on the roof and window shields that protect the officers inside it.
An important piece of information is that the armored vehicle is just one of the cars participating in the chase. You can't focus your attention only on it, you also have to attack other police vehicles. The main character uses a Tommy gun with unlimited ammunition – he stands at the back of a truck.
Note – Despite having an unlimited ammunition, you should plan your reloading well. In the early stages of the chase, reload the Tommy gun every time you destroy the nearest vehicles. When attacking the armored vehicle, reload your weapon when you have to hide from its fire.
Keep an eye on your health bar. It is visible at the top of the screen at all times and must "suffice" for the entire chase. If it gets depleted, the truck gets destroyed – you will fail the mission.
In the early part of a police chase, you have to kill police officers on motorcycles and in cars. Try to shoot the car drivers to stop the vehicles.
When the truck hangs over the precipice, you will have to defend yourself. Keep shooting the police. The truck fortunately soon rolls down.
In the final part of the chase, you have to defend against an armored police vehicle. The key to surviving the first part of the chase is to aim at the machine gun mounted on the roof of the vehicle – we have marked it on the picture. Do this when the vehicle stops shooting you for a brief moment.
The destruction of the turret won't end the pursuit. Now aim for the windshields of the armored van. Keep firing until all shields are destroyed. After that, you will watch a cut-scene.
The last part of the fight involves throwing Molotov cocktails at the armored van. Hold the key to determine the flight path of the Molotov cocktail – try to have every cocktail land on the vehicle.
After several successful throws, the crew of the van will get burned alive. This will end the chase.
