Any guess at how many warriors can fit in the van-like one?

actually you can fit a driver, gunner and 3-4 guys depending on how large the weapons they are carrying (spears would be a hard fit), and this holds true for all except the cargo hauler that was displayed first, as it sacrifices some internal space for external space. thier moslty the same vehicle just with different weapons packages making a nice universal platform for built up urban areas. and actually the windows you see in the command version are also on all others except the cargo handler so actually you can block a street have at least 2 men fire out the side while the gunner turns the turret to work in the same direction or on one area more needing of his attention, all the while the other two can disembark and take up fortuitous positions for the coming slaughter.

actually i went up to my local Lego store in rancho cucamonga. and got pieces to make two as i already have one (made it out of spare parts. they will be pretty similar to the LDD except for a few moslty color changes. because i could only find the blue sloped piece but over all its the same.also the store ran out of the large rubber tires needed so i got some thin walls and am going to cannibalize my heavy transport and missile truck at least until the tires come back in stock. i also got some other building elements mainly more basic pieces for the city im slowly building i also bought the Lego creator series yellow house. also i found a cool way to use the rebel landspeeder battle pack. ill post it later after I've taken pictures. if you look up the price on LDD for this design its around $42-48, if i go to the Lego store i can by it at less than $14, bit of a price difference methinks

Honestly, I love it. Aesthetically, its very pleasing. Looks good and solid. Very versatile as your several models show.
If you made an anti-air battery for this or make it able to tow a field gun i'd love you. I mean it, I really would.
Remember, there are no such thing as Athiests in foxholes. There's also no such things as foxes in foxholes.

I love the design and versatility of this truck. It seems like it would be extremely useful in a battle due to the solid construction, awesome array of weapons, and large carrying capacity.

Does the turret rotate?

These are pretty damn cool. Does the cargo hauler's trailer swivel? Regardless, these are some awesome vehicles.

Yeh, this reply is said in many forms before in this topic...
Good work! I think the missile battery or the public one are the best.
