The MGP-710 "Stallion" is the most-used ground vehicle used by the SPA (after individual AEGAKS units). Its durability and modification options allow for great use on and off the battlefield, and has high safety standards. It is armed with an AI/C (Artificial Intelligence or Controlled) turret, which carries a pair of heavy Gatling guns and four medium-range rockets.
AI/C Cannons are weapons platforms that can be switched to function on their own by a computer if things get heated on the battlefield, or to function by remote control in the cabin of the Stallion. SPA Engineers didn't want gunners to be behind the gun itself because it would have made them easy targets for Devastator Infantry, so the controls were embedded in the cabin.
The turret can rotate a full 360 degrees.
Let's get some action shots.

One of the features I like most about this creation is the suspension system. While it isn't perfect and could still use some work, I'm relatively happy with it for now.
Notes: Yes. It looks like the Warthog from Halo. That was kind of intentional, as I was heavily inspired by the Warthog. HOWEVER. The creation was INSPIRED by the 'Hog; this is not a replica of the Warthog! I chose the Halo 3 Warthog Run music because it matches the epic sci-fi battles that I imagine the battles in the AEGAKS theme being like.

I've got some new ideas for the AEGAKS Group that I'll be working on when I can. Until they're posted, I'll be pretty idle on the 'Pages for some time.
Very interesting design. I like how it has a Warthog look, but it also looks alot like a combat jeep as well. Not sure the SPA as a whole would trust a computer to arm and control the weapon turret though, considering they're fighting machines, but I like that it can be comtrolled from the cabin. Sounds like a very useable vehicle to me. IF you could, I'd like an LDD copy of it. ^Blub^
