It is silly to build every vehicle to withstand every possible attack. To do so, you sacrifice mobility and rapid deployment. Often it is more important to get there first than to get there absolutely safely.
Some people do not understand this.

It's along the same lines of personal armor. SFTT.org has talked to a armor manufacturer that can't get a DOD contract for a system that is apparently more protective than the SAPI plates and Point Blank vests we use now.
The more they add to those vests, the more they weigh, the more it slows down the good guys.
