Light Patrol Vehicle
|Light Patrol Vehicle|
|Type||All Terrain Vehicle|
The LPV was designed for use by militias and para-military police forces in counter-insurgency and counter-terrorist operations. Its limited range makes it unsuited to long range patrols, and its thin armor and small main weapon make it unsuitable for use against main-force military units, but the LPV serves admirably well against irregular units and those equipped with small arms.
The vehicle is typically equipped with a 20mm autocannon, but for some missions this may be replaced with a 7mm gatling gun or chemical smoke generator (producing anti-riot gasses). The LPV is manufactured by Instellarms, and by dozens of smaller firms under license.
The vehicle has a crew of 2 (driver and commander/gunner) and carries no passengers. It mounts a 20mm high velocity auto cannon in a turret mount. It has TL–9 direct fire control and wheeled suspension.
