Chenowth Advanced Light Strike Vehicle

The Chenowth Advanced Light Strike Vehicle is essentially a buggy. It combines low weight, high speed and good cross-country mobility. The vehicle has a high-strength tubular frame with a roll cage. They are used for hit-and-run style raids and scouting missions. The ALSV can be carried internally in CH-47 and CH-53 helicopters. Three of these vehicles can be carried by the C-130 Hercules tactical cargo aircraft. They can also be paradropped.
