Brief History on the Creation of the Vehicle
Laktan Armored Personnel Carriers are faster and better defended than their predecessor. The Laktan begins to introduce the "closed capsule" idea for the Armored Personnel Carrier of the Gohorns, which limits troop disembarkation time but increases their defense against missile attacks. The Laktan has now come in to general use across the Directorate.

Various Information
The Laktan Armored Personnel Carrier has the simple mission assignment of taking troops to the places that they need to be, dropping them off and then leaving the battlefield to collect more to do the same thing again. It is not required to fight the enemy, however it does have the firepower to defend itself if it comes under attack. Rarely will the Laktan be seen engaged in line operations, its sole duty is transport, and thus the designers did as much as they could to shield the Carrier, rather than give it offensive capabilities. This compromises its speed.
