nice food truck

here is what the Silver Gryphons Mercenary company fields

Code: [Select]
Sleipnir APC Tank Merc feild kitchen

Mass: 50 tons
Movement Type: Tracked
Power Plant: Merlin 250
Cruising Speed: 54 kph
Maximum Speed: 86.4 kph
Armor: Starshield Standard
     1 Machine Gun
Manufacturer: Enkra Mechanix
     Primary Factory: Enkra, Aurigan Reach
Communication System: Unknown
Targeting & Tracking System: Unknown
Introduction Year: 3050
Tech Rating/Availability: E/X-X-C-C
Cost: 598,475 C-bills

Another of the Silver Gryphon's homebuilt units, this is the units feild kitchen, only armed with a single Machine Gun, the unit's intended use is to provide hot meals to a tank/APC unit and their infantry in the field when they stop for lagering.

Like the units integral wash down units this is a support unit built to be able to travel with the fighting units, only dropping back when combat is initiated.
The unit is equiped with a field kitchen and four tons of storage, (2tons refrigerated, 1ton insulated and 1ton general) as well as space for a team of five cooks to feed the hungry infantry and armor crews. A single machine gun with half a ton of ammo and 8 tons of standard armor provide protection and security.

Built as a frankenstien unit initially from a military boneyard on Enkra the treaded chassis and Merlin 250 ICE came from a Vedette medium tank whle the body came from a standard Sleipnir APC. With its lasers, power amplifiers and heat sinks removed, the APC was able to mount more armor and a wholly more appropriate load out
