An Armored Personnel Carrier or APC is a military vehicle with a mission to transport infantry across the battlefield.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

An Armored Personnel Carrier or APC is a military vehicle with a mission to transport infantry across the battlefield. It is a type of Armored Fighting Vehicle. These may then be used for transporting other types of equipment but the key feature is that they are primarily designed for the purpose of providing battlefield mobility to Infantry.

The Vehicles are either aimed at being able to withstand the rigors of interstellar war or the expected level of warfare on a specific local planet. These result in very different requirements sets regarding levels of protection; of information management; and of firepower.

Once Gravity control technology starts to be used, these become known as Grav APCs.
