The Bosbok Recon Car enter service as part of a regional defense force build
up in during the collaspe of the 2nd Vondor Imperium, a memeber nation state
of the Co-Alliance, and the ousting of Fanstal the Third. This happened
during the current war with the Karagin and their massive leap frog invasion
waves. The lost of major key worlds caused the Imperium to falter on the
battlefield has world after world rushed to defend it self and in doing so
caused many units to get conflicting orders or no orders at all.

The aftermath was a coup on the Vondor homeworld and a counter-coup all with a
four to six time day time frame. Followed by a armimist with the Karagin.

The Bosbok was seen in use by the newly formed Imperium Rangers and Junner
Brigades. Both of which are setup as light to medium raider/scout brigades.
These units are tasked with landings on target planets to conduct harassment
raids and attacks all in support over a larger invasion force.

The twin medium lasers are it's main weapons of defense and offense. The
electronic package that the Bosbok carries is setup to seek out the enemy and
to mask itself at the same time. Dual countermeasure are inplace to help
ensure that.

With this vehicle just entering active service with the Imperium, it's high
tech electronics are seen as one step for the Imperium to reach the same
playing field as it's fellow members of the Co-Alliance as well as to give to
the Karagin a surprise or two when the next war breaks out.

Pretty... Sounds like something from my native South Africa. I like the idea of dual ECM's, never quite thouhgt of using them like that. How about stripping out one of those medium lasers and adding a MG with some ammo? Could prove useful if this guy finds himself in a close-range scrap with some infantry that were in hiding.

IF you want MGs go for it.
