The Arcturus Aerospace Vehicle 105 "Rock Python" is a fast and maneuverable vehicle made for various uses. It is modular, allowing the entire back section of the vehicle to be removed and replaced with other assemblies (including a cargo hold, medical unit, cannon, missile launcher, ICBMs, and various types of shields).

[HISTORY]

During 2035, the world was on the brink of war. Not wanting to do away with money that could be made, the Arcturus Aerospace Corporation decided to side with the United States and it's allies, on the premises that the Corporation would get military contracts and ownership of the state of North Dakota. Almost immediately after the two sides signed the contract, the US Army needed a multirole vehicle able to get from place to place quickly. The Arcturus Aerospace Vehicle 105 "Rock Python" fit that description. The prototype was tested, and then was put into mass production. About 20,000 of these were produced in this configuration, with one of each modular add-on made per vehicle.

This is the Troop Transport version. I will release the modular upgrades either as separate vehicles or as subassemblies that can be attached to the vehicle. These will be attached by removing the current hollow fuselage with the seats, and putting the new module in the place of the old one.
