A small tactical vehicle built to modernize an older design. Continuing down my L.U.C.L. reload line.
About this creation
This MOC was featured on the Lego Universe Creation Lab at the time it was built, however, seeing that Lego Universe has come to an end, I have decided to re-upload this creation here onto MOCpages.

Originally intended to replace the "1st platoon chassis" as an all-purpose infantry vehicle, however, during test trials the SUV was found to be more suited as a reconnaissance scout rather then a carrier. A new engine giving the vehicle less towing capability and a higher top speed was installed while the main frame of the vehicle went mostly unchanged throughout the development.
A simple SUV design allowing the crew to effectively locate enemy positions. Having a crew composed of one driver, a radio operator, and two ground scouts. A large cargo bay in the back of the vehicle can be used from transporting goods or may even have an enhanced engine compartment installed.
One-thousand units were originally built and have been used for non-combat related purposes; as of yet, not one has been used in the battlefield. This SUV was later used as the main vehicle in the Defensive military compound, also later used as the basis for the MR-2 LTV.
