Brief History of the APC
Unlike many of the other major powers that have sought to make their non-hover amoured personnel carriers heavily armoured units. The Terran Democratic Republic's UNPPF elected for its amoured personnel carriers to be more suited for reconnaissance. Able to carry a small fire-team of 5 people, the APC is a mixed reconnaisance/front-line assault vehicule that has as its mission to get troops to opened flanks very rapidly. As a result, the APC is in comparison to other vehicules of its class, lightly armoured and lightly armed. Though it makes it up with its great speed.

Various Information
Lightly protected and lightly armed, this craft's strengths come with its speeds. Able to outrun most other carriers, a massive of these is able to bring large number of troops from one place to another rapidly. Its speed also makes it difficult to track troop movements in time to get slower (and more powerful) firepower to bear on these APCs. Upgrades are currently taking place on most of the APC fleet, increased armour with no loss of speed being the prime aim of these upgrades.
