May I present... the AFV-10! The meanest, baddest, and biggest repulsorlift vehicle in its class, it's armed with four laser cannons, two grenade launcher pods, a quad machine gun turret, and two large missile pods.
About this creation
A close-up view of the commander and his turret. The MG 50Q, as it's known, is capable of chewing up just about everything short of a tank.
A frontal view of the vehicle and its teeth, illustrating its large glasshouse cockpit. It gives excellent visibility, but is somewhat vulnerable to rocket fire.
A bird's-eye view of the craft. Capable of immolating even tanks and large bunkers, the twin rocket pods is used to demolish just about anything in support of the infantry.
The main role of the AFV-10 is to ferry six fully-equipped combat troopers (often with as many as six more hitchhikers) into the midst of battle safely and to provide them with as much support from its array of weapons as possible. Commander Wraith and his men say hi.
An interior view of the vehicle with the troops removed, showing the intricate array of control panels within the inside of the craft. I built this one night when I found a junked Imperial shuttle, minus the wings, cockpit and tail, while at a sleepover at my friend's house. I then built the rest from his Lego scratch.
The top covering can flip up, allowing for easy insertion and removal of the crew. To the left is the pilot, while the other man is the copilot/gunner.
A combat photographer was kind enough to capture this snapshot of the six troops exiting the craft in an urban battle. Commander Wraith and two other soldiers provide substantial fire support from their fully automatic weapons while their comrades move up to join them. Above, the quad turret lays down covering fire and rips up the enemy formations beyond.
Whoops! A soldier got shot! No matter. In times of emergency and need, the vehicle may be used as a mobile command post or as an armored ambulance, as seen here. Two soldiers hoist their wounded buddy into the back of the craft while a third, trained as a medic, gives him a swig of bacta. Commander Wraith and the remaining soldier protect their friends by throwing up a wall of fire from their guns. Despite his injury, our friend will be OK; he will be whisked to a field hospital in no more than 10 minutes.
