All trucks have a fixed oil tank, when going to the frontline it needs to  be empty. Clearly because otherwise it would be a easy target

The turret is a very old design, but is still in service. WE like to deploy them in jungles where they can´t be seen very good and strike fast.

As you can see it has a suspension for more ofroad terrain

It’s mostly based on this concept

Your truck is really great, it even has working suspension! But seriously, that triple AA is a gem!

Nice, I noticed how that fire truck looked like a HEMTT too. I like how u used the grate pieces for the back. I also like the AA gun, you have any close-up pics?

That thing turned out awesome!  I'm a big fan of working suspension... can you elaborate on how you did it?  

Thx

I like how you used the Fire Truck to make a military transport. Well done.

To those who asked: instructions on how to make the suspension can found in the instructions for set #7213 at the Lego Web Site Instructions Database
