MPUVs!  They're like Jeeps (And Kübelwagen) which means they're used for just about everything!

How would you customize yours?

I'd only do minimal work on it. Runflat tires, spoof chip, and morphing plates. Not even sure about the plates and the spoof chip if it's gonna be used for out of city work.

Ooo, and Chameleon paint.

I'd have a couple.  They're pretty cheap after all, and fairly available.  Hard part is getting the bad knockoffs.

I'd have an up-armored one in unconcealed armor and a LMG on the roof mount for Barrens driving.

Concealed armor, remove the Searchlight, and a few "Under the Hood" mods for city driving.  GridGuide Override, Spoof Chip, and Morphing Plate with Chameleon Coating to start.

And an Environmental Modification, Amphibious Modification, and a few other odds and sods for smuggling.

Edit:  Oh, and Winches on all of them.  So many things I can do with a winch, and it won't look off on a vehicle like that!

Bingo...
Also to add more C3. Don't have the books on me, but 1/2-a-tonne sounded like too much weight in a normal jeep...

You'd be surprised what you can stack into things.

2-1/2 tons was only the official weight the Prime Mover of the US Military (And lend-leased to every other Allied side) in WWII was specified for.  I'm willing to bet they went over that quite often.

I'm happy to acknowledge any and all ways to stack more C3 into that ugly MPUV. Anyone able to tell me the max weight this vehicle could carry, while still being able to be remotely driven to it's target?

Pack that explosives into the Driver's seat. I don't care.... I'll make a C3 'Buster' dummy like Mythbusterstm, so he doesn't attract too much attention D:

The "Bus" that my group's IRA contact had a Sex Doll in the driver's seat, with a bus driver's hat duct taped on.  Through the heavily tinted windows that are standard on vehicles in the 6th World, it went unnoticed.

*laughs* As amusing as that sounds, I hope it was a high-end life-like doll.

Any standard passerby is going to query some inflatable doll driving a bus (especially if they're waiting at a bus-stop for pickup!)

It's the autopilot.  You need to inflate it by blowing the spout in the belt buckle.
