The Caveirão ("Big Skull" BOPE Armored Troop Transport, got the nickname from the insignia of the troop) is in my plans. At least the geometry, I'll ask for help with the textures later, since I'm not good with them.
I want some criminal combatants for them. In Rio de Janeiro the Drug Lords are heavily armed but uncharacterized (no uniform or distinctive characteristics). Maybe I'll mod MMIP Showcase #3 Rebels by Lazarus. They are the closest thing, just more more dark skinned and with brighter clothes (we are in Brazil, after all).
I'm no designer, I just modded the minis (without backs) from shadowolf and the car from Marco Lallo. I would love to see some shadowolf minis with backs. His style is excelent and meshes very well with One monk minis (his art is at some point between Jim and Crusiau).

Frankly, there are only a couple of those figures that aren't facing sideways, so backs would only be helpful on a couple of them, unless you are concerned with whether they are right-handed or left-handed. I think they are fine as is.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
The old "Big Skull" was an adaptation of a valuables transport van. What we call here in Brazil as a "Strong Car". The new generation of the "Big Skull" was developed specifically to support urban combat:
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
