An oldie but goodie. I’m going with the Doug Chiang sketch proportions from the original Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels and close(ish) to the original WEG Imperial Sourcebook line profile, instead of the more recent CGI variations of the design. I really love the proportions here and always have. Just very clean overall, with a good mix of swoopy-ness and clearly defined shapes. Credit where it’s due, WEG nailed this one. Shame the later CGI versions have not done it justice.
The goal is a Boxer-JLTV mix light AFV for utility and supporting roles. The thing is 11.8m long. That means the rear compartment has ~2m height, so not bad scaling actually for a command vehicle – you could have a (holo)map table for instance set up and have staff standing inside around it. The rear compartment volume in total would be about M113 complete volume, which is pretty consistent for the role and would be a useful size for various things that don’t require something as big as a Broadsword MAV A7.
Depending on internal distribution
- command unit and electronics
- 1 infantry squad in fairly decent comfort in assault order
- a pair of anti-tank or crew served weapon teams with equipment
- 4 stretcher casualties or a bunch of seated casualties
