The M3 SAVE, also known as the quintessential Jeep, Star Wars style. Based off of the proven Indy Jones design, it provides mobility and firepower to 25 Elite Legion and FIRE troops.
About this creation
A frontal view of the SAVE. The laserproof windshield can deflect anything below cannon bullets and provides the driver with top-notch protection.
A left view of the vehicle. The large black box stores spare ammo well and lets troops rearm with ease. True to its origins, the SAVE can swim. (Apparently, the Clones like Russian. They haven't replaced the Russian inscriptions with Star Wars ones.)
A right view of the vehicle. The MG 32T heavy machine gun is being operated by a sniper, while a set of skis for arctic mobility are racked below it. To the right are random assorted equipment.
A shot taken by a combat photographer of 25th Elite Legion troops dismounting to take care of an enemy emplacement. The use of infantry with close mechanized support is a proven doctrine both in the real world and in the Lego world.
Another shot of the action. The MG 32T heavy machine gun, originally developed for spacecraft, is lethally effective in annihilating the opposition. It is just as effective as chewing up infantry as it was chewing up X-Wings and the like. An interesting note is its large drum magazine.
A shot of the SAVE with its troops removed. Normal complement is about 6 fully-equipped troops, plus a driver (and in extreme situations, some hitchhiking troops needing a ride). Since the machine gun is pointed at you, you had better watch out. The 25th is after you.
A last peek at the vehicle. Note the impressive array of dials, gears, and switches that constitute the control panel. In addition, an ammo box is situated next to the heavy machine gun. Thanks for viewing!
