Being based on the Grumman-Olson P-800, the SWAT Van has a very large and boxy shape, and shares the same chassis and body design as the Courier. Being a large step up van, bearing the SWAT logo, it acts as New York SWAT's only operated vehicle in service. It has basic circular head lamps, and a large square grill, and an addition ram bar attached. Its main window isn't bullet proof, but it very strong, with a window separator in the center. The front features a mounted light bar, almost identical to the one found on the M700, except it is has been enlarged.
On the rear, two large doors are found, with the SWAT emblem split between them. A small standing point on the rear, supported by two metal supports can be found. The rear features no emergency lights, other than the standard rear-lights, reversing lights, and brake lights.
The side holds the SWAT emblem, as well as a large white stripe followed by "SWAT" text on the side.

The following page or section needs the following additions or improvements:
As expected, the SWAT Van has sluggish acceleration and a mediocre top speed, however, it is still an improvement from the Courier. The vehicle has slightly more traction than the Courier, and the handing is an improvement, however, it can still become irresponsive at high speeds, to the point that the wheels can be seen turning but the van fails to move significantly. The durability is another major improvement, thanks to the additional ram bar, and reiforced bodywork.
The vehicle features and very groany, low-revving engine, that sounds to be a diesel engine. It is laid in a front configuration, powering motion through a rear-wheel-drive drivetrain.
