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 forward supplied by a 2 ton ammo bin, and a Flamer to the rear 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 but to deliver and support the infantry.


  • 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 2798 variant a simple weapon swap. The flamer and infantry bay are exchanged for two forward firing medium lasers. BV (2.0) = 501[3]
  • SRM2 
    This 2824 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]
