The Hunchback APC MkI was originally used for carrying a squad of 8 but with the ever growing bulk of combat armour its effective carry capacity has dwindled so that it is now regarded as being able to carry 4 armoured troopers. This variant is the ‘Light Anti-Tank’ version, a faster but lower calibre turret weapon than the Hunchback APC – AT, this weapon is only effective against lightly armoured vehicles and APC’s, but is ineffective against heavier vehicles.
Whilst it is being re-designed into a larger format with slightly changed features in the MkII version, its reliability and superb protection against mines and IEDs makes it remain a favourite of the troops even if it can become cramped internally.
