Designed by the Pintel Corporation for the Federated Suns as a personal infantry transport vehicle. The vehicle was created to answer the common infantry troopers' call for a small all-terrian vehicle, which includes water. It is able carry a second passenger and is noted for its over-sized wheels. The vehicle is also able to tow a small trailer behind it. While unarmed, the vehicle has a pintle mount allowing an infantry support weapon or small arms weapon to be fitted onto it.[2]


Features Amphibious, Off-road and Tractor chassis and Control Modifications, 2 passenger/pillion seats, and Pintle Mount.[3]


  • Due to the vehicle size and armor capacities, it is considered a support vehicle and not a regular combat vehicle. It is not clear if it was intended to be used as part of motorized infantry formations.
  • Other than Handbook: House Davion, as of this writing there are published Record Sheets for this vehicle or additional fluff. The Master Unit List, does list the vehicle but does not have battle value as of this time.
