Description[edit]

The Packrat is a speedy eight-wheeled vehicle that is designed for deep infiltration and sabotage. It is capable of carrying a squad of infantrymen and their gear, and, in a pinch, the interior can be modified into a sleeping area.

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Packrat is armed with a Harvester SRM-6 and a pair of Flamers for anti-infantry work. Despite this firepower it normally uses its high speed to evade combat, as its role is not to fight head-on.

Variants[edit]

  • ICE 
    The ravages of the Successor Wars let to the removal of the Packrat's advanced fusion engine. With the heavier ICE engine, the flamer and a ton of armor had to be dropped. BV (2.0) = 294[2]
  • ML 
    This variant a simple weapon swap. The flamers are exchanged for two forward firing medium lasers. BV (2.0) = 501[3]
  • SRM2 
    This variant expands the infantry bay to a three ton space. The missile launcher had to be reduced to a SRM-2 with two tons of ammunition. BV (2.0) = 263[4]
