Gotta agree with the eeeeew about the Dodge Viper...ugly as car.

Though of course I'd have one...if only to sell it and buy a Nissan Skyline R33 GTR V-Spec...mod it out and slay those big bulky fat useless piles of junk jokingly called 'Muscle Cars'.

teh mutha's of all mutha's

the M577 APC


The M557 APC (armored personnel carrier) is the product of a USCMC requirement for a cheap, lightweight APC that can be deployed from a dropship. The M577 is very mobile, and well-armed enough to function as a multi-role vehicle within the structure of a lightly-armed fast attack force. Unfortunately, many trade-offs and limitations have been imposed by the Corpsí requirement that the vehicle be dropship portable.
Chassis & Hull Construction:
The composition of the M577 centers around both minimal weight and maximum rigidity in order to meet the USCMC necessity for a combat ballast under 15,000 kg. The drivetrain is of 4x4 configuration, receiving power from a 286 kW multiple fuel gas turbine. Unfortunately, the M577 uses wheels instead of tracks to apply its power to the ground, robbing it of off-road performance while increasing field reliability and saving substantial weight. Solid rubber, low profile tires are wrapped around these massive hubs, proof against small caliber rounds and shrapnel.

The M577ís chassis is composed of bonded titanium around a 5 cm thick floor cavity that guards against anti-personnel mines. The hull is welded from light titanium alloys and latched or bonded to the chassis. Interior hull surfaces are lined with boron carbide tiles covered with polymer resin 2mm thick, providing limited ablative protection from lasers penetrating the outer hull. Weight restrictions allow for very limited armor protection, capable of stopping shrapnel, small arms fire, and low-velocity armor piercing rounds.

Crew Complement:
Two crew, the driver and section commander, are responsible for vehicle operation. Provisions are provided for twelve passengers, with restraint yokes for orbital combat drops. The spacious interior is capable of storing materiel sufficient for three days of combat, although this amount of gear causes the vehicle to become quite cramped. Rear of the cockpit is the Tactical Operations Center, wherein the section commander maintains contact with the squad with audio and video feeds, monitoring combat in real-time on several video displays.

Sensors, Stealth, & Defensive Systems:
The driverís main field of view is provided via a forward window of armored quartz crystal, with supplemental periscope ports for observation of the sides of the vehicle. Multi-function displays at the driverís and commanderís locations provide a sensor enhanced view of the combat area surrounding the APC. Sensors consist of: a thermal imager, TV camera with magnification from 4 to 20x, UV detector, and motion tracker. Millimeter-wave targeting radars are slaved to the forward gun emplacement and main turret. The slab-sides of the hull give the vehicle a large radar cross section. Radar absorbent material has been applied to the outer skin, with limited success. All defenses can be controlled by computer logic system, the commander, or driver.

Weapons Systems:
For such a light purpose vehicle, the M577 mounts substantial firepower. A small turret traversing the APCs forward arc mounts twin Republic Electric RE700 20mm Gatling cannon, supplied with 1700 round multi-feed ammo bin. Available round profiles are: High Explosive, High Explosive Armor Piercing, and Swarm type Anti-Personnel flechette rounds. These weapons use an upscaled version of the pulse technology found in the pulse rifles and smart guns. The main weapon of the M577 is mounted in a fully traversable, self-contained turret assembly on a rail that continues down the rear of the vehicle. Motors allow it to moved and stowed on the vehicleís rear, allowing it to fit within a dropship or shuttle bay. Fire control can be automatic or under the discretion of the vehicle commander. The M577A carries twin 20mW Boyars PARS 150 phased plasma cannon. Each gun carries 1000 rounds of ammo. The final, and most recent production version, dubbed the M577A3 carries twin 20 MeV turboalternator powered, charged particle beam cannons. A breakthrough in turbine tech allows deployment of a unit capable of generating 20 mW with a fuel supply sufficient for 50 seconds of continuous fire.

Even though the M577 has many trade-offs and limitations inherent in its design, it has remained the primary workhorse APC for the USCMC. This role is a result of the M577ís dropship portability, mobility, toughness, and heavy firepower. These features allow it to function as an effective part of the Marinesí rapid assault force structure.

Well UP,

I think I'd rather track down a Lotec Sirius Concept. It never went into full production...though I read recently two road going versions were actually produced (no doubt for the big-wig financers of the project). I doubt they are driven though...too rare a car.

It runs a 6litre twin-turbo Mercedes-Benz V12, makes 1000hp on 0.85bar of boost, though wind that boost up to a relatively lazy 1.2bar and power levels spike to 1300hp. With a curb wieght of 1200kg, she hits a top speed of over 400kph/250mph.

Though recently here in New Zealand, our fastest Street Legal car went up for sale for a measly $70k...thats less than $30k in US Dollars. Its a 1000hp Ford Mustang, that cut 8s (in full street trim) over the Standing Qaurter

Just what ya need to go get a loaf of bread and some milk down the shops..
