VDS Medium Armored Combat Vehicle
With the battlefield becoming a more "devolved" world and place, Vigilance Defense Systems has focused its industries to further protect traveling troops. This development is the Medium Armored Combat Vehicle, or MACV. The MACV is a rugged and fairly heavy chassis built to sustain IED and RPG blast while still protecting the boys inside. The elevated structure provided room for the drive shaft to be placed, almost entirely, internally. Able to carry 6-8 troops is a vital asset when trying to mobilize infantry quickly and efficiently. With the note of quickness, the MACV is able to travel at speeds up to 88.5 kph. So far, not a single man traveling in a MACV has been lost.

Very nice! I never have been able to really understand how to do large vehicles, but this one is great! (Come see my new steampunk MOC - I'm branching out!)

Quoting Michael Ford Medium?!? That's huge! Which when it comes to transporting eight guys across the battlefield is a good thing...medium! (shakes head...) Great job making it look boxy-but-not-too-boxy. I built an LDD hardtop version of the AHMCAV and it was too boxy, this is lots cooler. Looks nice!
Thank ye, thank ye. Anyhow, the same thought on the medium subject crossed my mind. However, seeing as though it doesn't possess armament, it just doesn't match up with my definition of heavy. Anyhow, thank you for your kind words.

Excellent work. I like the bulky and tough shape it has to it. It just looks like a sturdy reliable vehicle. If I would fix anything it would be the height of the wheels, they seem a bit too high.

Awesome. I can definitely see influence from Michael Ford's vehicle, which also influenced my half-track and Jeff's similar vehicle. Your vehicle also reminds me of my half-track, like Jeff's. Hmmm... maybe there's some bizarre circle of influence going around here, lol.

Very nice job! I too, love the boxey, tough look to it; I think rounding it out would make it looks less military-like, if you catch my drift. It has a very armored look about it, too. Reminds me greatly of the MRAP.

I disagree, I think the ground clearance is just right. The front, on the other hand, could probably stand to be angled a bit, rather than being horizontal.

Nice work. I love the idea of a huge armored vehicle, it looks massive. The only thing I suggest is rounding it out a bit. It's very blocky in the front, and the back could use some more detail. The area around the wheels needs to be bulked up a bit, and adding a few more greebles would be nice. Otherwise it's really nice, good job.
