The Grey Wolf G-2 class Armored Car is a later industrial era TL-6 Armored Fighting Vehicle.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Enlightened 1T Grey Wolf G-2 class Armored Car, TL-6: The vehicle's hard steel armor sheaths the chassis and turret to levels of protection to protect versus bullets and shell fragments. An improved internal combustion power plant and transmission are linked to a large 6x6 wheeled suspension suffer with high ground pressure and poor cross country mobility. It can become bogged down in mud on a roll of 5+ but can cross sand, snow or soft soils. The turret mounted LMG can help deal with encroaching infantry. The auto cannon is used to engage air craft and light armor. It is stabilized to fire effectively on the move. The vehicle has an operational range of 340km by roads and 68km cross country. Because of its light construction it has a good power to weight ratio and is quick on the roads. This scout is inexpensive and effective in its intended role.

The vehicle has a crew of three: driver, gunner and commander.
