Design Notes - After fiddling around with the design (part of the makeshift "HMG in a Turret" series), I realized I already made a version of this car with the Division 20 Venus. I discussed before about when two designs can be considered two different cars or just one car with a set of options. In general, I'd say the same car is one where the body size and basic weapon system is the same. Hence, I was going to add this design as an option to Venus. However, when typing it up, I realized there were so many changes (engine, tires, no ram etc), that needed to be made that I felt it was enough to define it as a whole 'nother car. Let the philosophers work this one out.
