February 28, 1997
North Hollywood shootout was an armed confrontation between two heavily-armed and armored bank robbers Larry Eugene Phillips Jr & Emil Dechebal Matasareanu and patrol and SWAT officers of the LAPD on February 28 1997 at a Bank of America teler-office
Two suspects were killed and 15 people were injured, including 10 policemen. None of the injuries incurred during the hour-long shootout was "life threatening,"
Los Angeles Police Chief Willie Williams said.
Although only the suspects were killed,
the sheer number of injuries made this one of the bloodiest single cases of violent crime in the 1990's and one of the most significant single bank robberies of the 20th century

TQ/Morale: D8/D10Special NotesStrong Stimulants
Both Larry Philips and Emil Mătăsăreanu would often take muscle relaxants before a heist. Thus they gain the Strong Stimulant rules.Armed and DangerousBoth Larry Philips and Emil Mătăsăreanu had illegally converted several rifles to Fully Automatic. They were also both equipped with several fully automatic weapons, and pistols.While the LAPD has only pistols and shotguns.
Both Philips and Mătăsăreanu count as having Lt. Support weapons (AP:1), and when shooting at Cops count as out gunning them (i.e. 1 extra FP die)Encumbered
Both Larry Philips and Emil Mătăsăreanu had made custom made body armor that covered their entire bodies. This gives the Heavy Body armor rule, and it also prevents both of them from preforming rapid movement.
