Strange, I can't find the thing that makes it TL D.

Rifle = B
Structure = C
Engine = C
Armor = C


MLL bug perhaps?

Interstellar Operations says Combat Vehicle Structure is TL D (page 48 refers).

But it is build as a Support Vehicle, so MML is getting mixed up?

Also, TL D covers a huge range of technologies developed over hundreds of years. That's kind of like saying that since the IBM System/360 is TL B, IBM should have skipped over it and started making 486s in the 1960s.

Hmmm... MML doesn't slap a "Support" label on it anywhere.  That SHOULD work as a Support Vehicle.
