Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Type 74 Hover Truck is a support vehicle assigned to Federation Forces ground combat units to provide them with battlefield intelligence when radar is rendered ineffective due to Minovsky particle broadcast. Utilizing an advanced passive ground sonar suite to identify targets at long range, the Hover Truck is also equipped with a powerful communications system to penetrate low levels of Minovsky jamming. The Hover Truck is also designed with an open cargo bed for the transportation of supplies. For defense, the Hover Truck is armed with a single 20mm vulcan gun mounted on the turret, primarily for anti-aircraft defense. The standard ground mobile suit team consists of three mobile suits and a Hover Truck, and these units are deployed all across the world from Asia's Kojima Battalion to the White Dingo team in Australia. The Federation Forces deploy a similar unit, the M353A4 Bloodhound, on the European front.
