Ripper APC

The Ripper APCs were fielded by the Republic Army many decades
before the Clone Wars made their mark on the galaxy. Unlike most
army combat vehicles, the Ripper was not a repulsorlift-equipped
vehicle. Instead, it used four massive armored wheels to propel
itself across the terrain. Due to this, the Rippers were mainly
restricted to relatively flat areas and were often deployed in
urban settings for street patrol.

Inside, the APC housed a virtual mobile command center with
sophisticated sensor and communication equipment to assist the
assigned officer in efficiently and effectively directing and
monitoring the movement of the APC's squad.

The Rippers were often times used in conjunction with the
Apone-class assault shuttles which were designed specifically
to ferry the APCs from ship to surface and then back again.

Commonly the Rippers were only deployed during states of martial
law, for light assaults, policing raids and rarely for large scale
military actions unless the terrain proved to be easily navigable.

Designer Notes: Based off of the APC from the movie Aliens.
