The ATUVs are used by all branches of the Eurusian Army.
About this creation
Ural L520 ATUV (All Terrain Utility Vehicle)
Originally designed to be a replacement for the aging light jeeps, a number of different requirements transformed the L520 into a hybrid between a jeep and a light tactical transport truck. Many were sceptical to the new design, but when the ATUVs got their baptism of fire in Chechnya they proved themselves to be highly successful in combat. The L520s were soon adopted by all branches of the army infantry divisions, and the soldiers learned they could depend on the ATUVs, transporting troops and equipment into hot zones, laying down supporting fire and getting soldiers pinned down by enemy fire out of harms way.
The L520 was designed to traverse any type of terrain in any weather condition. Its high ground clearance and large tires give the ATUVs excellent mobility, and a rugged chassis and body allows them to take a lot of punishment and still keep going. The composite armour in the L520's body keeps the weight down, while being able to withstand even 12.7 mm armour piercing rounds. The wheels are vulnerable to small arms fire, but the L520 can drive up to 7 miles with punctured tires, allowing the vehicle and its crew to get out of trouble. For increased off road ability, the tire pressure can be remotely adjusted by the driver.
The L520 also has a detachable hard top for extra protection. The hard top versions often take the role as anti tank vehicles, sporting a remotely operated missile launcher for 9A230 “Shturm II” guided anti tank missiles.

The ATUV's rear. I think the rear lights are quite cool.
The L520's standard armament is a 12.7 mm heavy machine gun.
As with all self-respecting off road vehicles, the windshield can be folded down.
The L520 sports the same powerful V8 diesel engine as the Ural 4330 trucks.
The ATUVs can carry three to four passengers.
The L520s can also transport various equipment to the battlefield.
"get these supplies to the front doubletime!"
Originally designed to replace the army's light jeeps, the ATUVs are also replacing the ancient ZIL AT-90 artillery tractors.

Connor (from Ohio): Please talk to TimLTD if you wish to join the UCF/DC storyline.
Mike Gordo: ATGM actually stands for Anti-Tank Guided Missile, but it's understandable that it can also be mistaken for Air-To-Ground Missile. Anyway, it's been changed to avoid further confusion.
All of your vehicles are really good. I was wondering if you are taking allies, if so I would like to ally with you, though I am not sure how much sense it would make because most of my MOCs are made up halo-era vehicles.
