Holy firepower, Batman: The Batmobile has been upgraded
Original main gun module has been replaced with symmetrical 20-30mm 3-barrel chain guns.
These appear to be the same type used in the nose of some military helicopters.
I've always felt the new Batmobile was way under gunned with twin 50 calibers.
So, I will be incorporating this new weapon system into my B v S DOJ Batmobile build.

On Sunday, "Justice League" director Zack Snyder shared a photo of the Caped Crusader's cool ride on social media platform Vero, and someone seems to have spent a little time upgrading its firepower capabilities since last year's appearance in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."
And the director doesn't want to hear any complaints from a certain Gotham City billionaire.

"Upgrades... what are you worried about Wayne," Snyder wrote in the photo caption. The famed Batmobile now has major weaponry built into the hood, so nobody better cut off Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) as he cruises to Starbucks on Saturday morning.
True Batmobile fanatics can compare the photo with this toy version covered by CNET last month when it appeared at Toy Fair.
Snyder's been generous about dropping "Justice League" tidbits lately.
Last week on Twitter, he shared a five second clip of Jason Momoa swimming underwater as Aquaman.
And his Vero post right before the Batmobile picture is of a modern, glass-walled structure, with the caption, "This is the Bruce Wayne house we built from scratch based on the Farnsworth House." (The Farnsworth House is an iconic one-room home-turned-museum in Illinois designed by noted architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.)

Did a little more online research about this DOJ Batmobile upgrade. Apparently this has been known about for at least 6-months. There are models that show these upgrades at least 6-months ago. Not sure of these models origins. Could be custom scratch, modified existing, or even images of prototypes. vertigo

What is really important about this book is that 99.99 % of all engineering problems have been solved with these strategies and methods and that all these are contained inside one book. It is also relevant to solving problems across most specialties. From bridges to Bat Vehicles this book can contribute much to your problem solving methods and strategies. Used copies at Amazon run 33-50.00. vertigo

Here is the best wraparound face shield I have found.

I rarely use safety glasses or goggles anymore as my primary
protection since finding this product.

The level of protection is just so many times greater with this shield.

Stray metal fragments from grinding and saws are still the number one
eye injury causes for workers in metal fabrication. Around 5-10% of
these are injured even though they are wearing safety glasses. Reason:
The safety glasses didn’t have side protection and the metal fragments
entered from the non-protected sides and/or from above or below, when
the worker had their heads, tilted down or up, too much.
Additional worker eye injuries come from splashes and stray droplets
of fuels, oils, solvents, greases, paints, resins, chemicals, etc.
I also used mine when working on mills, lathes, metal cutting circular
cutting chop saws, etc.

Uvex WRAPAROUND FACESHIELD
Face Shield is contoured for superior protection and visibility
The Uvex Face Shield is extremely lightweight and features a contoured
design for superior face protection and improved visibility.
Ratcheting headgear allows you to fully adjust the shield for a
comfortable and secure fit, while the soft breathable headband keeps
you cool and dry in hot environments. Easy-to-replace face shield
window can be changed in seconds. Meets ANSI Z87.1-2010. USA made.

These cost $35.65 for uncoated window and $51.20 for
Hardcoated/Anti-Fog window from Gemplers. Anyone who has worked for
some length of time with grinders, saws, routers, drills, sanders,
mills, lathes, etc., in wood, metal, plastics, resins, liquids, etc.,
can usual recall several near misses from damage to their eyes.
Wraparound Face Shields and/or goggles are CHEAP AT THE PRICE when you
really consider how much your eyes are worth to
you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I placed a copy of this post here because it may be of some use to
someone doing a Bat Vehicle build or planning to do a Bat Vehicle
build.

Based on my collective research and study, so far, of the Batman v
Superman Batmobile it appears the easiest way to build this Bat
Vehicle with the least amounts of man hours and expense is to build
the body first completely in wood.

An alternative to building the body in wood is to use one of the 3D
available programs to have the vehicle routed life-size in foam. This
would be a great way to go but the lowest price I found to have this
done is 12,500.00 delivered to my door.

The next step is to find a donor vehicle, with the title, could be a
car but most likely a truck, conforming closely to logical body
attachment points.

After acquiring a suitable donor vehicle, one would probably fabricate
a frame around the donor vehicle that matches the bottom edges of the
wood body and weld in additional braces as needed.

Once the wood body fits on the donor vehicle frame then the builder
will have two choices. Remove the wood body, build a frame on the
lower frame, attach the body panels that have been translated into
steel or other materials, and join together. The second choice is to
remove the wood body and translate it into steel or other materials
with the end result being a bolt on body, probably with a few modules,
that can be taken, on or off, at will.

Completing these steps should get you to approximately 80% completion.

Here is a method I am considering for my build.
One method used by a friend of mine who has worked in metal sculpture for 40 years might prove viable in building the Batman v Superman DOJ Batmobile body.
SKIN and BURN is his name for the method but the method has been documented to have been used for more than two-thousand years in art and construction, etc,....
I am currently thinking about using it in my DOJ Batmobile build.
Here is how SKIN and BURN would work on the DOJ body.
Build the body and other pieces in wood, cardboard, or foam.
Cut steel pieces, fit to wood body, and secure with adhesive. Repeat procedure until all translated metal pieces are attached. Then use a MIG welder with a dwell timer set to 1/4 to 1/2 second on high heat. Same welding method is sometimes used by custom exhaust welders. Tactical welding techniques must be used to avoid distortion effects. The wood is then burned out slowly or cut away inside in pieces. I probably would cut away the wood so I could weld inside as I cut away the wood pieces.
Cut steel pieces, fit to foam body, and secure with adhesive. Repeat procedure until all translated metal pieces are attached. Then use a MIG welder with a dwell timer set to 1/4 to 1/2 second on high heat. Same welding method is sometimes used by custom exhaust welders. Tactical welding techniques must be used to avoid distortion effects. The foam is then dissolved with solvent, but could be burned out slowly or cut away inside in pieces. I probably would use solvent.
If a 3D routed 1:1 foam Batmobile didn't cost 12,500.00 I could embrace the foam method. vertigo
