DA3: Taking out the Trash
DA3 / Mechanized Infantry Squad (CAT 4)
About this creation
While the Brewtopian Panzerbiergrenadiers are responsible for handling normal military operations, the Brewtopian army employs a brigade of elite commandos for performing MOUT (military operations in urban terrain) and infiltration operations.

These commandos used a specialized stealthy APC, known as a UAV (Urban Assault Vehicle), for ingress to and egress from the target area. Since Brewtopian intelligence has revealed that most enemy cities are full of trash, especially in their government offices, the UAV was designed to have the outward appearance of an ordinary garbage truck.







Let's see:

Six wheels... Check.

Spare wheel behind the cab... Check.

Driver... Check.

But where is the turret and the rest of the commando squad?



To see the rest of the UAV's features, we'll have to convert it to assault mode. The back door opens up, revealing a gunner strapped into a turret. Armor plated panels begin to move to cover the wheels.



As the transformation is completed, the armor plating locks into place over the wheel wells. The turret rotates upward and locks into place on top of the open door. The gunner is now free to fire the quad 7.62mm machinegun and coaxial grenade launcher. The commandos can now dismount from the UAV.









The members of this Brewtopian commando squad (in the above picture) are:

Driver Joseph Wradislaw
Gunner Archer J. Maggott

First row, from left to right:

Squad Leader Maj. John Reisman
Vernon L. Pinkley
Victor R. Franco

Second row, from left to right:

Robert T. Jefferson
Pedro Jiminez
Samson Posey

[FOURTH WALL: There's a reference there, if anyone cares to figure it out.]



Finally, here is picture with the top taken off the UAV, so you can see how the squad members and gunner fit into the compartment. There's even room for 3 kegs of beer.



John Winger and Russell Zisky could only wish they had a vehicle like this one.



And now the final final picture, showing that this APC will still fit onto my landing craft (but unfortunately, the LCAC won't quite accommodate two of the new APCs, as it did with my earlier version).

Quoting Patrick Flanagan This is really cool. It's like transformers, if they weren't stupid.
Thanks. I sort of drew my inspiration from "Stripes". Others have mentioned how the terrorists in "Olympus has Fallen" used converted garbage trucks for their attack, but I wasn't aware of that reference when I built it.

Quoting Patrick Boyle That inner turret is a clever design! Great work on the very believable city truck.
Thanks. I hoping for a simpler design for the turret, but it soon became clear that there would be no way to make it fit within the truck unless I had a few more degrees of freedom in the mechanism.

I'll be more suspicious of the garbage truck next time it comes around the neighborhood. LOL!

Quoting Zach Sweigart The Colonial Liberation Corps would like to express their interest in replacing all garbage trucks with the variant designed by Brewtopia. Are they on the market, yet?
The UAVs are available for export yet, but for the CLC, we can probably make a special deal. Do you have any of those Thunderbird gunships to spare?
