Standard Utility Jeep Back to Top

The standard utility jeep is the workhorse of much of the New Anglian military, including the Army, Marines, Navy and Aerospace Force. The original design has proven so successful, it has been adopted by the New Swabian League military forces and by military forces of a number of smaller powers such as the New Israel, the Dutch Kingdom, Sweden, Free Cal-Tex, and the Independent Antarctic States.

The design specifications called for a light-weight, highly mobile general purpose utility vehicle with the ability to keep up with rapid-deployment forces, to carry a small but significant payload of men or material, and to be adaptable to a number of roles on the same basic chassis (AT, AA, Comms/EW, medical, NBC decontam, and other variants).

Another key criteria for the basic jeep design was that the vehicle would be manufacturable on larger colony worlds with intermediate manufacturing capabilities. The jeep had to be maintainable by colonial machine shops and repairable by outpost mechanics. The parts used in the design were required to be robust, simple, and inexpensive.

The winning design satisifed all of those criteria and has been manufactured on at least six worlds. At last count, jeeps of this basic design were in use on over 40 human inhabited places. Estimated combined production numbers exceed 1,000,000 units. The average service life of one of these has tended to be 10 years, with many of them lasting a further few decades in civilian hands.

General Purpose ("Jeep") Vehicle: Unarmed Soft-Skinned Utility

Mobility Class Air Cushion (Fast GEV)
Crew 1: Driver
Passengers/Cargo 4 troops in full fighting order or 1000 kg of cargo
Comms & Sensors Basic (both) EW & ECM Basic ECM
Fire Control/Guidance Basic (D6) Stealth None
Powerplant HMT DS2 Points 10
Armour 0 on all sides (soft-skinned, D6)
Armaments NHR mount for HMG, AGL, or Gatling MG (no weapon mounted)
Other Equipment Often equiped with portable fire extinguisher, portable vehicle toolkit, and vehicular smoke dischargers.

Armoured Utility Jeep Back to Top

The Armoured Utility Jeep takes the basic utility jeep and adds a basic armaments package and a NAC-standard sensor suite and some internal armour panels to provide protection against small arms

General Purpose ("Jeep") Vehicle: Armoured and Armed Utility

Mobility Class Air Cushion (Fast GEV)
Crew 1: Driver
Passengers/Cargo 4 troops in full fighting order or 1000 kg of cargo
Comms & Sensors Enhanced (both) EW & ECM Basic ECM
Fire Control/Guidance Basic (D6) Stealth None
Powerplant HMT DS2 Points 10
Armour 1 on all sides
Armaments NHR mount for HMG, AGL, or Gatling MG.
Other Equipment Often equiped with portable fire extinguisher, portable vehicle toolkit, and vehicular smoke dischargers.

Light Anti-Armour Jeep Back to Top

The Light Anti-Armour Jeep takes the basic utility jeep and replaces it's infantry or cargo carrying capacity with a turret mounted GMS/H launcher complete with an enhanced sensor suite and enhanced guidance package for the GMS system. It also provides internal armour panels to offer protection against small arms fire. Enhanced ECM buys it more battlefield survivability.

This vehicle is intended to offer security forces and rapid-deployment forces a lightweight and cheap vehicle which can take out heavier armour. It has minimal survivability if it comes to a standing slugfest with more heavily armoured vehicles and it has significantly reduced lethality against enemy units with advanced ECM capabilities. A shoot-n-scoot philosophy is the standard modus operandi for this type of vehicle.

General Purpose ("Jeep") Vehicle: Light Anti-Armour

Mobility Class Air Cushion (Fast GEV)
Crew 2: Driver, Gunner
Passengers/Cargo 50 kg (enough for tools and personal gear for crew)
Comms & Sensors Basic Comms, Enhanced Sensors EW & ECM Enhanced ECM
Fire Control/Guidance Enhanced (D8) GMS/H Stealth None
Powerplant HMT DS2 Points 40
Armour 1 on all sides
Armaments NHR mount for HMG, AGL, or Gatling MG and turreted GMS/H (Enh) launch system.
Other Equipment Often equiped with portable fire extinguisher, portable vehicle toolkit, and vehicular smoke dischargers. Usually carries one full set of loads for the GMS launcher.
