During the Vietnam War, Jeep was introduced as a military vehicle. Soldiers liked them so much they bought them when they returned home. During Desert Storm, the Hummer was introduced and, again, after the war, they were purchased when soldiers came home. Now, The Jeep, and even the massive Hummer, need to bow down to their new Daddy. The Marauder Mine-Proof Armored Vehicle.
The first thing to notice about the Marauder APC is the size. On the right is a Hummer and we know how big those things are. The Marauder APC is over 8 feet tall, 18 feet long, and 7.5 feet wide. It weighs in at 32,000 pounds. That’s 16 tons of bad assery.
The APC Marauder can be used for numerous tasks. This is the base model with no attachments, no extra, just the bare bones system. Please note, only sovereign countries can buy these from Paramount.
The Marauder is marketed more towards rescue and peace operations as well as National defense. It can be used as a heavily armored ambulance that can get in and out of battle zones to rescue those who are injured.
Another variation is as a Command Post in heavily contested areas during battles or during riots. Holding up to 8 people someone can run rescue missions or issue orders for other operations all from the safety of this armored beast.
The Marauder is sold mostly as a non-violent vehicle. For rescue, command centers, and for National Defense but the Anti-Armor Fire Support Marauder addon’s are where this bad boy shows off. Got a tank in the way? Shoot it. Got another tank? Shoot it too. Another APC? It won’t survive 15 seconds with the Marauders firepower.
As Infantry Fire Support, it’s your personal bodyguard. If pinned down by gunfire from the enemy, it can roll in to offer fire support or just as a shield between you and the enemy. Ten tonnes of South African stoutness, the Marauder is possessed of a double-skin monocoque that helps it resist virtually all forms of light-arms fire, as well as the occasional anti-tank mine.
The impressive range of capabilities extend to fully operational camps, personnel equipment, armoured vehicles, aerospace support and the most technologically advanced command and communications systems.
Is there an invading country? First step, put these on the front line. If they see these and don’t immediately leave (they will), then each vehicle can carry 8 soldiers each, it can take a beating from gun fire, and when you push the bad guys back, it can take a beating of up to 22 pounds of TNT underneath the vehicle and 31 pounds of TNT blast under the tires. That’s about 50 sticks of dynamite under the vehicle. Nearly 70 sticks of dynamite under each tire.
Uprising or riots in your country and need something for National Defense? Use this as a defense unit to block streets or to corral trouble makers. it can be retrofitted with less-lethal weaponry and ram bars as well as cages on the windows. It has holes on the side for firearms that can be easily replaced with pepper-spray sprayers or pepper-ball guns.
“This sounds awesome, what if the bad people are behind a brick wall”
It tears through them like it’s made of paper without a dent or sign of damage.
Even lions are mesmerized by this new king of the jungle.
A typical tactic that protesters employ is blocking streets with cars. Not a problem with the Marauder. Just roll over them like they’re Hot Wheel cars.
The Marauder Armored Fighting APC can be had in multiple colors including camouflage.
When it comes to the interior drivers panel, it’s certainly function over form.
A command center isn’t complete without a robust communications are. This has numerous radios, intercoms, PA’s, loud speakers to the outside, and more.
