The M61D EWV provides theatre-wide surveillance and jamming of enemy communications and sensor arrays.
About this creation
No, I was not smoking peyote when I built this turret variant.
The Argus is the last of the turret variants built on the common M61 hull. I knew I wanted to build an electronic warfare version but didn't have much of a plan going about it. Lots of doo-dads and thingys sicking out all over the place was the order of the day. I also imagined it doubling as a air-defence unit in a pinch so I armed it with the same THEL as the Cerberus along with a 40mm AA gun that elevates.
The build is the most fragile of the bunch and a royal pain to handle and position without something separating or falling off.
I was playing around with the lighting again. One more adjustment and I think I'll be satisfied with it.

Given its appearance, Argus crews lovingly call their vehicle the 'Bunny' and adorn it with art. Operating on the furthest peripheries of the battle space, no brass will ever see their artwork.

Mounted on the aft turret is an electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) generator for knocking out enemy electronics. Conventional vehicles can be rendered useless by the EMP while more advanced military vehicles tend to be protected.
That ends the turret variants. On to the hull variants of combat service support vehicles. Not quite as sexy as the stuff I've put up, but necessary for completeness.
