Tiger's too old & slow, Abrams or a T-80/90 is a better bet! ;D

Unless you want the roads to remain usable after the chase, in which case a wheeled IFV may be better. ;)

Around here in Alberta, the cops have one of these ----- although the one that was used in a stand-off 20 odd km away was this one in the bottom photo.
