Design Notes - This was in my draft folder dated August 7, 2007.  It's part of the Convoy Project (see here for all the cars) and specifically an older (now alternate) version of the "filler" car, which I made into Convoy 4.  This one looks like a half-baked attempt to just fill up the remaining stipend (17K).  But, on a personal note, I love how even years apart the same design idea ("compact with 1sp turret!") stayed in my head. 

I could upgrade this, but what's the point?  The revised Convoy 4 is just better in every way.
