The ACR-8 Armoured Ground Combat Vehicle by Valkyrja - Maintenance & Engineering is an eight-wheel combat-rover, based on the frame of the Armoured Risk Control Vehicle and is part of the "Armoured Combat Rover"-series.

While the ACR-6 was designed as a security measure for colonies on hostile worlds as well as a simple APC for law enforcement-duties, this upgraded Rover aims straight towards the military market. Trading its transport-capacities for additional protection, the ACR-8 neither fits the definition of an Infantry fighting vehicle, nor does it have the tracks and exesive firepower of a battletank. However, the vehicle provides a good mix of protection, firepower and maneuverability as well as being easy to modify.

The frame grew in length and recived an additional set of wheels, to compensate the extra-weight of the significantly beefed up cockpit. Not only does this keep the wheel-base short, but the ACR-8 is also capable to cover rough terrain and new developments in wheel-stability allow the vehicle to reach high speeds while still being controlable.

The interior was rerouted in order to fit a large conveyor-junction in the center. This way the ACR-8 is capable to connect a missile-turret to the network, while its predecessor was limited to gatling-turrets only. The ACR-8 can easily be refitted with a gatling or even a costum rotor-turret.

This item is survival-ready and all vanilla! It is fully conveyor-linked, thruster-damage compatible and uses no mods, DLC-blocks or subgrids.
