About this creation
A SPARTECH troop carrier/fighting vehicle. It's main uses are transportation, defending convoys and killing infantry, artillery, trucks, buildings and helicopters. It has very thick armor, thick enough to withstand an anti-tank missile or medium artillery, plus heavy underbody armor for withstanding mines. The tires are foam-filled and Kelvar reinforced so they are flat-proofed and can withstand a lot of damage. The main turret has a 40mm cannon that can tilt up to 45 degrees, and a secondary machine gun operated from a hatch. The turret also has antennas. The IFV is powered by two ultra-efficient and powerful diesel engines of a all-new design, these new engines are much smaller and much more efficient than normal diesels. The original IFVs has external mufflers, in combat these were often blasted/torn off letting the engine noise come out. The engines made a harsh growling noise, this gave it the nickname "Growler". Later versions had internal mufflers, but the name stuck.

This is my first studless combat vehicle, there are only 5 exposed studs. I'm VERY happy with the turret, but I'm not sure about the main body. Too spartan maybe? Or the colors are funky? I dunno, what do you think?
