Brief History of the AHPC
The AHPC is the United Nations Permanent Peacekeeping Forces' leading transport vehicule, having operated in a wide variety of missions from search and rescue operations to frontline troop deployments. The AHPC has been equipped with light anti-personnel weaponry that is designed to provide just enough cover fire for two fire-teams to be dropped onto the soil. The AHPC is a low-detection craft, which is able to escape detection when flying close to the soil. Capable of carrying a full squadron of men, the AHPC have been nicknamed the "Black night" as a result of their paint scheme best suited for night operations.

Various Information
The AHPC is characterised by a slight difference in the location between the pilots of the craft, and the actual assembly area where peacekeepers sit and wait until they arrive at their launch point. The AHPC is as much able to serve as an anti-personnel vehicule as it is a troop carrier - highlighting the Peacekeepers' commitment to see as many troops as possible reach their landing points. The AHPC has seen succesful service in several OIP Peace Force deployments.
