The limited success of the Shahin IFV and subsequent licensing of the Maxim slowed Scarborough Limited's development of additional vehicles in its line of hover combat tanks.  Just over a dozen years later, the Shahina debuted as a Shahin-derived Recovery Vehicle.  The four lift hoists mounted on its broad back enabled it to carry up to two of its sister vehicles, or even an Archer or Warhammer while losing only about 10 kph of top speed.  It retained the infantry compartment of the Shahin to provide room for up to four tech teams, or one tech team and four industrial exoskeletons to speed up recovery operations.  Recovery vehicles being something of niche market limited sales, though the Shahina's relatively high cost didn't help.  The double down on parts commonality is what keeps it in Scarborough's catalog even now.

The mental image of one of these doing a buck-ten km/h with a Warhammer on its back is giving me gigglefits.  Talk about rapid recovery!
Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen,
Tod und Verzweiflung flammet um mich her!
Fühlt nicht durch dich Jadefalke Todesschmerzen,
So bist du meine Tochter nimmermehr!

or the idea of moving a warhammer to another fight at twice its speed is a bonus

The only thing that needs to be broken is the RAW Lift Hoist...
I mean regardless of how many hoists we put in a chopper or hover, in the end the total weight will have be carried by the same rotor blades or air cushions.

But still a nice design to complete the S line

"Wars result when one side either misjudges its chances or wishes to commit suicide; and not even Masada began as a suicide attempt. In general, both warring parties expect to win. In the event, they are wrong more than half the time."
- David Drake

I'm willing to suspend my disbelief, but I'm not willing to hang it by the neck until it's dead, dead, dead!
