Yes there is a big door on the back and two side hatches.

Well in a way I was going for a turreted look for all of the vehicles.
of hull perched on hover skirt look.
Admitedly that does give it a shot trap as you put it.
I'm inclined to call that a design flaw :)
Like when ever I watch tank programmes and they talk about weak spots!
But I might have a look at the APC with no overhang to the hover skirt.
The base unit is in fact the medium hull. I made three in total. Small
medium and large.
