It should be noted that as of this writing, there is currently no updated record sheets available for the Ibex RV or its variants. Record Sheets are found in the Handbook: House Marik lacks Battle Value and the Machine Gun version lacks a record sheet completely. The Master Unit List, lists the originally fluff only Machine Gun variant of the Ibex and renames variants to the above listed naming. Originally only the King Light Gauss Rifle fitted variant of the Ibex was listed and only named "Militarized".
A record sheet for the Ibex RV Gauss variant was included in the Turning Points: Irian product.
