* "The Hardest Part" from ''Eat To The Beat'' by Blondie is an unusually American example of this trope, depicting a robbery on an armored car. The "hardest part" of the title refers to getting past the armed guards inside the truck.

* ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'' has a rather more violent spin on this trope, with the players dropping cargo containers in front of convoys, bombing out skybridges to block roads off or ramming semi trailers into the lead trucks prior to breaking into them proper. Police responses are usually fast and it's not uncommon for the crew to have to fight their way out even if they subdued the drivers peacefully.
* In ''Videogame/AssassinsCreedIII'' occassionally convoys filled with money and special items spawn in different parts of the frontier and Connor is able to steal from them after killing every guard. It´s also implied the player is on the receiving end of this as sending a land/naval convoys with products to a city or the frontier will usually present a percentage of failure.

* ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'' has a rather more violent spin on this trope, trope in its Transport Heists: you intercept [=GenSec=] armored cars in the middle of their route, break them open, and steal their contents, all the while law enforcement is trying to bring you down. Those "interceptions" consist of such tactics as ramming them with the players a semi, dropping a cargo containers container in front of convoys, bombing out skybridges them, or dropping a skybridge with C4 to block roads off or ramming semi trailers into the lead trucks prior to breaking into them proper. Police responses are usually fast and it's not uncommon for the crew to have to fight their way out even if they subdued the drivers peacefully.

* The most famous British RealLife example is the 1963 Great Train Robbery, which was actually woefully badly done and resulted in the arrests of nearly all involved; the robbery itself went off fairly well...until the culprits decided to play a game of Monopoly with the real money, getting their fingerprints everywhere.
