Given my philosophy of maintaining the same weapon system in the upgrades, I could possibly put all the "3 MML in 3sp turret" as one named Van except that's way too limiting. I mean, if I put every car with a turreted Vulcan... Anyway, the original car is not that good, and I was unsure if I should spend more time to just create an upgrade of a poor weapon system - basically, if you have a turret and front weapons, they should be capable of smartlinking. Extra mags do take up low-weight space in a Van. Even as it is, the original design had 5 spaces left. I took those spaces up with sloping (which every van *needs*) and CA (the best bang for the buck), and a DSP (the only damage-sink cheat I'll allow for vans, because the armor weight thing is ridiculous, and it actually a usable weapon).
Were I to totally update this, it would be because I like the name.
