A dedicated night vision system and a program on the laptop to allow terrain mapping, in the command post vehicles with the tabletop display 3D image from the intel could be made. I'm not describing this well. But the ability of recon teams to use the radio and laptop to send data to command or even Prime Base.

I was slipping through the supplu bunker web site and came across a paper concerning the fusion power packs,based on the paper, the Project was able to use a much smaller power pack.....so how about this for an option, inbaord space on the V is to be kind, limited. Try moving the forward engine bulkhead back a foot and and the inboard engine bulkhead in a foot, you can then place a rack of storage compartments in each location to hold tool kits, and speciality equipment.

How about a water pump and hose? Since it was considered for the 5 year plan as a primary vehicle, why not the ability to combat fires if a source of water is near enough?

Its an intresting idea, but I keep running into this stumbling block...the 5-year wakeup plan. Even considering a TEOTWAWKI scenario, their would still be a lot operational equipment that would need repair work, but would still be of use. Sooooooo...why equip a V-150 with a powerful water pump to fight fires? If a local fire station is known to be in the area, why not a cache with spare parts to repair the pumpers?

For fire fighting, I would go more old school and use a trailer. Not only can a V-150 tow and power it if needed, but the pumper could be towed by most military trucks as well and powered from a Project APC carrying the firefighters or even with a small reactor, such as used with the Mk 2 laser.

Wouldn't the fire stations be inside the heavily damaged zones for most of the nuclear impacts?

Add, no two fire departments have the same trucks and most are replaced at 5 year intervals. You could end up with spare parts for an International and the FD has Mack.

Probably best to cache trucks and all the necessary equipment. Probably fusion too, since there isn't likely to be diesel for a fire truck anyway.

Heh, how about internal fire suppression and anti-spall lining.

Central tire inflation system

Tactical data network through the Autonav.

IR or Thermal viewer for the driver....

External (Infantry) phone

IFF transponder

Cell phone patch

Police/Fire/EMS scanner

1 million candlepower off road lights.

Skidplates and differential armor.

M231 port firing weapons for the firing ports?

Ram bumper?

More powerful winch

Replace winch with hydraulic power system for tools.
