Design Notes -This is an update of this obsolete (and stupid) design (as stated there, 'This is the fourth entry for a series of really stupid 'concept' cars based on anti-pedestrian combat.')
Compact, Xhvy Ch., Hvy Sus., Large PP, driver, 4 SD tires, turret with 2 linked FG , SS rear with Tear Gas (i.e. TSS). 4x10 pt. WG. 175 pts armor: F40 R30 L30 B30 T25 U20; Acc. 5 HC 2; 4435 lbs., $14,150
Since I can't use a 2sp turret anymore, I felt that putting 1 FG in a 1sp turret and 1 FG front, then smartlinking them, would take care of that. The original had a Large PP... why?  Out that went. I felt the anti-theft system attached to Flechette dischargers (aka grenades, in my day) would also fit into the RPG theme.  With these changes, I was able to get some component armor in as well as full 80 points of wheel armor - a true necessity for anti-pedestrian comabt.  To deal with the resultant loss in HC, I use radial tires.
