Description:The Rhino TRU (Tactical Response Unit) is an heavy-duty attack vehicle, with an ultra-tough full armour. The Rhino is apable of high speed with the help of twin ram air booster jets at the rear; supplied with ten wheels (two front sets, three rear set), as well as with variable ride-height suspension, it is equipped with a multi-wheel steering system, which makes this cumbersome-looking vehicle surprisingly easy to maneuver, on any kind of normal roads as well as giving it good off-road performance.
The Rhino is armed to the teeth with an impressive arsenal: two front mounted twin cannons, with explosive tipped rounds, armour piercing missiles, harpoon guns and magnetic clamp guns. There are also extendable battering rams on the front and rear. It is also equipped with evasive action anti-missiles which can be launched from the rear.
The Rhino is a sealed armoured vehicle, which access to the cabin is gained from the hatches on the vehicles sides. Retractable seats will face the opening to receive either the driver and/or passenger and then get into position in front of the controls panel. The vehicle can be driven from either side, the steering sliding into position to whoever wishes to drive it. Other hatches are situated on top of the vehicle and underneath it.
The driver’s cabin has a number of control screens, which act as the driver's eyes. Equipped with all manner of computerised equipment needed for Spectrum work, the Rhino also comes with a security device allowing the driver to lock the vehicle capacity by password and voice-command, thus avoiding the Rhino to be stolen by an enemy if it should be left by itself.
Whenever a Rhino is needed on a given mission, Spectrum will use the Albatross to transport the vehicle. The Albatross will landed - using VTOL capacity and the hatch beneath will open, a lift lowering to the ground to deposit the Rhino - with driver inside - ready to perform its mission.
