GZ 560 CCAV "Commando"
Being relatively fast and more agile than larger APCs, the CCAVs proved very successful on the battlefield. The Eurusian soldiers loved to have a vehicle they could depend on in almost any combat situation, that offered both good protection and respectable firepower.
When the decision was made to deploy a SPEAR commando task force to support the UCF led offensive against the SPA in the Middle East, it was only natural that a number of trusty CCAVs came along with them. However, the SPEAR commandos had different requirement for their vehicles than the Army, and the CCAVs tagged for the Task Force had to be customized for the Special Forces.
The CCAV “Commando” is lighter and faster than the standard version, which is better suited for the sandy deserts of the Middle East. The troop compartment is topless for better visibility, and a swivel mounted RPK 14.5mm heavy machine gun provides good protection against enemy infantry and light vehicles. The CCAV “Commando” has preformed so well, that it has been adopted by the SPEAR commandos as their principal utility vehicle.

Ooh, now I'm torn between which one I like better. I like the camo scheme a lot. It would appear that your building techniques are getting a little more 'MOC', if that makes sense; some of your older ones looked a little like official sets, these look like what official sets should be! bigger, beefier, cooler... Great job! -- -- Michael
