Even outside of the errors in the math, and the major farce of the whole anti-pedestrian theme, and even beyond the farce of Car Wars vans, this was a horrible design. To improve it, I used the tricks for all my vans: sloped armor, gunner, Component Armor for all crew (everything should be CA, to be honest, but I needed to keep the original nonsense, at least nominally). I threw out the original $25K tag because RPG doesn't really require it, and updated from Super to Sport for the weight saving; upgraded the armor and tires to FP (because fire attacks are the most effective from peds to cars), added IFE for same reason.
