  • Description and History

    This standard Armored Personnel Carrier could be found aboard most U.N. Forces capital spacecraft during Space War I. Utilized to transport infantry on the battlefield, these armored fighting vehicles have but a single heavy machine gun and are only lightly armored. However, the standard U.N. APC can carry a sizable force of soldiers inside the small interior and the six wheels provide the vehicle with superior speed and traction in difficult terrain.
