Early 24th century APC/Comms-Relay vehicle used exclusively by the UKCM.
About this creation


The Thunder Child was one of seventy V-98's produced by the United Kindom Colonial Military, A vehicle like this is usualy given a crew of five shock troopers. This one was driven by the 175th Charlie Squadron, an undefeatable set of battle hardened soldiers.



Front view. Reinforced ThermaCams guide the way to avoid direct link between the interior and exterior of the vehicle,



Interior. Large cargo bay (back left) can hold any payload required for the mission. BatStats smart A.I.(center)hologram computer can give at least 200 different solutions to any kind of problem.
Main control area (back right), basic controls mean the vehicle can be manually operated by any authorised personnel.









Tow hook built into the engine compartment can be removed by sliding a 1x1 stud found directly to the right of the engine.





By removing the roof, we can see the interior in more detail.



Double barreled mortar gun is used only as a strategical advantage. By firing a mixture of tracers and cluster bombs in one magazine, the ThunderChild can stun the enemy at the same time as dramatically changing the appearance of the battlefield.

Quoting Andrew AKA Hump-Free Hey Man Thanks For Joining HFR!!! So, the issue you're having is the lack of interior room, I assuming that it is in regards to fitting MiniFigs. In order to achieve this, without adding height, is rather difficult but you can do it depending on the vehicle. In this case, you can add some interior room by building downwards, meaning you keep the exterior mostly the same as you modified the underbelly of the vehicle, in order to fit the MiniFigs. From what I am able to see, that is the best course of action.
Thanks. I am happy to be part of the group.

Quoting Nufalak of Mythada Very nice. I like the overall shape, and the mortar gun is especially well built. My only complaint is that it looks like it'd be a bit cramped on the inside. Still, great build.
Yeah, The interior is too low to hold a standing fig but a sitting fig still has plenty of room. I decided to lower the roof on my third prototype(one week into the initial build) It was to make it look more bulky and more efficient as an APC.
