I've been talking with the ex-cannibal asylum-seekers about countermeasures their former leaders developed to deal with the Reapers' tactics

The thing I wanted to know most was what the Cannibal Gangs do to reduce the effectiveness of the Reapers' modern-day "fire ships."

The Cannibal Gangs call them "Zombie Wagons" -- livestock semi-tractor trailer rigs with ram-plates up front, carrying a cargo of zombies...

I suppose that's a good enough name for them. The Reapers use them to breech fences & walls during sieges, emptying their cargo once inside.

The armored fronts make them hard to stop using weapons, but the Zombie Wagons are big and unwieldy and their tires are a vulnerability.

Blocking roads, blowing bridges, digging ditches, placing road spikes, and shooting out tires have all been used to mixed effect. #zombies

The main thing is slowing the Zombie Wagons' momentum so they can't break through the defenses, keeping the dead away from defenders inside.
