DA3 CAT #04: The Prosperous-class Troop Transport
"We, the elite, are definitely, certainly, and undeniably NOT in charge, and this fair, democratic, and equal country is definitely, certainly, and undeniably ruled by the people, and this motto is not too long nor sarcastic AT ALL." - DPRNO state motto. Sorry for any poor image quality
About this creation
The Prosperous-class Troop Transport is an eight-wheeled transport vehicle which Ogrch Tec. has created for the military of the Democratic People's Republic of Not an Oligarchy. It can seat six troops, a Pilot, and a Gunner, as per SPEC #1 of CAT4. Actually it could technically hold a ninth minifigure in the seat of the buggy in the back in addition to the six troops in the troop area in the middle of the vessel.



As you can see in this (sadly fuzzy) image, the pilot has full control of the transport's steering and most other systems from the myriad of displays, levers, and buttons at their disposal. Additionally a spare wheel and tire can be seen above the troops, attached to the turret, fulfilling SPEC #3



Here you can see all six of the the troops in the troop holding area, including one who is looking out with binoculars to keep watch. This, in addition to the pilot's seat and the gunner turret (which was removed for full visibility of the six troopers in this shot) fulfills SPEC #2



Here you can see the scout buggy leaving the main transport via back ramp (the same ramp troops would leave to rush into battle), as well as the gunner turret, which can rotate 360 degrees, and is in a different position then in the main photo, fulfilling SPEC #4



From left to right: Laura Adgi, the pilot of this particular transport. John Capernock, the gunner, holding a metal detector for finding mines (This is normally stored on the bed of the transport at the troopers' feet). The Twins Thomas and Travis Charleston, two of the six troopers in this squad, both holding standard issue rifles.



From left to right: James Addison, one of the six troops of the squad, he holds a pair of binoculars in addition to his standard-issue rifle as he is also the unofficial squad scout, and often keeps watch or goes ahead in the buggy to secure locations. T0M Not-A-Robot is definitely not a robot, and is clearly a human being like his fellow squad mates, and is also certainly not a surveillance system for the totally nonexistent oligarchs who run the DPRNO as he clearly has no spy systems built into his metal chassis, as he is a human and has no metal chassis. Kelly Zacker, another of the troopers and a natural leader in the group, also holding a standard rifle.



And here's one last photo of the Prosperous-Class, without any minifigures, so you can see all the antenna, guns, storage areas, controls, and other do-dads unobstructed

General Black Wind your Mechanized Infantry Squad is specifications-accurate and you are ready to roll into turn #2. Good luck, and don't forget to fill out an ORBAT list (with working links) in the thread of the same name, once it unlocks tomorrow at 1pm (PDT).

Quoting General Gunn ~ The vehicle itself is a tad messy, but i really love that you included a little rover in the back! You are one of the firrt in DA3 to do that!
Well I do try to innovate. Thank you. Yeah, I admit the vehicle was a bit rushed and could have been better, but I'm pretty happy with it.

Quoting Winslow "Whit" Wadsworth Whittier The Wiseô Oh my gosh! That scout buggy is adorable!*Insert little girl skwee* Oh, ahem. Right then. This reminds me of some of the earlyier mission to mars sets. Great job and good luck!
Mission to Mars is DEFINITELY not an influence on my building, just like the DPRNO is DEFINITELY not ruled by an oligarchy. Thank you for your positive support!
