Has anyone used these? Do you treat them more like vehicles or like infantry?

They are vehicles, plain and simple. :)

If you want to use them with infantry, you use the stats for mechinf instead.

It you'd like, there's a VotW article that looks at all of them in detail.

Quick question, wasn't the Bulldog/Norman truck from TRO:VA supposed to be an example of these too, something used as a Mechanized Infantry "vehicle"

You can fluff the vees used by a motor or mechinf platoon to be whatever you want. :thumbsup:

Are there construction rules for SSVs? I want to make a personal WiGE with Ferro Lamellor and a Heavy Support Pulse Laser  :D

There are. They're essentially a subset of the regular Support Vehicles from TechManual.

I don't believe they support Ferro-Lam, though, but I might be wrong.

Per TacOps, the following advanced armor types are usable by support vehicles: Ferro-Lamellor, Reflective, Modular, Reactive, Stealth. Go have fun, though any further comments on this belong in Fan Designs. C:-)

Merely inquiring into the construction rules. Speaking of which, can SSV mounting SRM like the Trike (SRM) use infernos?

Technically yes, as infantry SRMs can include infernos, and inferno munitions are one of the few infantry-scale munitions that are actually factored into AToW-TW conversions.
