They were more moblie than the Lancer over the open terrain of the Vektan mountains and muddy swamps, and were responsible for many of the Third Army's early victories. It was likely designed specifcally for the Vektan invasion, and despite their abiltity to hover they are still vulnerable to land mines. To counteract this, each model of these APCs feature a roller in the front which may be lowered to prematurely detonate hostile mines before the reach there softer underbelly.
