History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Deployed in companies of five vehicles, 120 men in one HQ and four platoons of one vehicles each. They serve in larger Lift Rifle Battalions of the Rimward Federation forces. Primitive by some standards, these hulking beasts are tall, with a high profile. Their cavernous interiors lend them to a wild variety of modifications. Several versions are adapted to carry a host of weapon systems, and they fill different support roles.
