My $0.02...

Trikes are a bad thing for cross country work - ATV trikes were banned
North America, and replaced by the little 4 wheel versions.  Not to beat
dead horse, but I really think the only mounted weapons on bikes should
if the bike has a side-car (ah la WWII German army).  Dune buggies are a
whole different ballgame - the Chenworth Fast Attack Vehicle used by the
is a neat little machine - with three crew (all inside the roll cage)
and a
raised rear gunners' seat.  They get armed with all kinds of stuff,
commonly a .50 cal MG and a couple of .30 cal MG's, though they can be
armed with missile launchers, automatic grenade launchers, etc.  It
be great to see something like this in Stargrunt - crew of two or three,
with a heavy machinegun or light autocannon and one or two SAWs.
Not really much different from one of the existing jeeps, but cool

Anybody got suggestions for a model to use?
