M113 C&V.jpg

In Team Yankee[edit]

A Commando- & Verkenningsvoertuig (Command & Reconnaissance vehicle) with a 25mm cannon essentially the same as on the YPR-765 IFV.

That gun tho.

IRL[edit]

They've even modelled it with the right number of road wheels: 4.

Fun fact 1: Most of these vehicles actually had a 7.62mm GPMG instead of the 25mm cannon, but Battlefront decided to go balls deep with this big fucking main gun - on a recon vehicle, no less.

Fun fact 2: The autocannon could be fired from the inside by mechanical remote control (this was before the days of IR remotes, kids), although reloading had to be done by a crewmember from the outside. How's that for drawing the shit end of the stick?
