The base for a command van is a six-wheeled all terrain vehicle. The van contains medical equipment for first aid, communication systems for surface to surface and surface to orbit transmissions. During battle the vehicle is under normal circumstances far away from the frontline. The vehicle is lightly armored.
Weapons and Equipment
The command van is equipped for self defense usually with a LRM 5 (48 shots) in the turret and one front MG (200 shots). It is protected by 4 tons of armor spread evenly across its surface, slightly increased in the forward zone, the turret is not as well armored.
A record sheet for the ICE variant of this vehicle is published in Record Sheets Volume Five Vehicles.
