The Libyan Civil War the Mad Max war

Mad Max (1979) showed an apocolyptic world where fuel becomes cash and the weapons of war are on makeshift vehicles
The Libyan civil war put the protesters and deserters from the military against Gaddafi's well trained army and mercenaries that he paid in gold.

The rebels used any weapon or vehicle they could and some made for some really interesting combinations.

Sometimes the fighters took a relaxed way to war fighting that us professional soldiers find almost shocking.
