AIT3 Armored Personnel Carrier
About this creation
AIT3 Armored Personnel Carrier™

Lore: The AIT3 (Armored Infantry Transport) is one of the oldest vehicles still in use by the United Colonial Military; it was originally deployed during the first Border Wars and has seen use in every conflict since then. Its longevity is due in part to its reliability, versatility, and the ease at which it can be upgraded for modernization and combat specific roles. The forward cabin has seating for the driver and weapons/communications officer, while the heavily armored troop bay has seating for up to six passengers. The AIT3 is designed with a sloping V-shaped undercarriage to reduce damage from mines and other explosives; it is fully NBC protected and can easily be airdropped and retrieved by several different carryalls. A new upgrade kit includes a deployable floatation screen and concealed propellers allowing it to be used for amphibious operations.

There are numerous variations in use; the AIT3-M is equipped with a remote weapon station and armed with four ‘Mamushi’ anti-armor/anti-air missiles, the RWS is equipped with LANDSCAN and SKYDOPPLER radar suites with a 70 kilometer range. The AIT3-LS is a medevac version, while unarmed it is designed to quickly retrieve wounded soldiers and provide transport for them and combat medics. The AIT3-G is armed with a G-76 35mm BALLISTA cannon for infantry support, and uses a ‘sideswipe’ sound tracking hardware suite for anti-sniper applications. Perhaps the most unique variation is the AIT3-EW; it sacrifices its troop bay for a shielded electrical impulse generator that is linked to a Controlled Electromagnetic Pulse Discharge Disc (CEMPDD) mounted on top of the APC, when fully charged it can release a devastating electromagnetic pulse with a range of 10 kilometers, effectively shutting down all unshielded electrical devices within its range.

Quoting Michael Rutherford Ahh. You added shots of the troop compartment. Bravo! The rear troop hatch is quite cool. Beyond the MOC itslef, your photography is very powerful. You give the entire presentation a highly developed, almost commercial feel. Very very cool. Attack!
Thank you sir! The troop compartment is tight and the photo still doesn't display all of it. I've got another one of these in progress, and I will get a photo of the compartment before it's closed up for better presentation.

Reminds me of a russian, aa version at least, of a BTR-2000. Just sayin... so why pick an AA? why not an Anti-Infantry? it'd provide covering fire for the troops as they get out, wouldn't it? good job, though. woohoo!

It looks very cool. Your photo is very well done. But I would love to see the troop compartment. 6 soldiers? That is impressive,but at the risk of sounding skeptical, show me. I would love to see this thing and all of your other exelant systems from a few other angles. Attack!

Quoting MOCrazy ! Is Will using a DSLR and What Version of photoshop does he use (I use CS3)
Thanks for showing intrest, I use a Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II DSLR. The main focus is obtained via a Canon Ultrasonic Macro EF 180mm 1:3.5 L I also combine this lens with a Kenko C-AF DG 2x Pro 300. All Photos are edited in the original 'RAW' format using Photoshop CS3 and Gimp. The title photos are in true High Dymanic range (HDR) Using a plugin for CS3. for these you must take an Over exposed, +2, Under exposed -2 and use one with equal value 0-0+0. Check out my photos on deviantart through the link. http://mrbee30.deviantart.com/

Again, this has awesome use of color. It uses bley, lots of bley! Very clever design. It really looks like it could take on any IED and survive. Any minifig would feel relatively safe in this. Your work is great. Keep it up. Regards, Eric.
