In some countries the Hilux “doubles” as tractor. It needs to seriously robust.

After Top Gear blew up a building with a Hilux on top (after several other tortures even) and started and drove it afterwards with only basic repairs, I have nothing but respect for those things.

It’s missing the deadliest variant of all.

Maybe we should have a Technical vehicle group build?

I’ve got the Meng set with the two trucks in it.

Meng also makes a Soviet/RUssian AA Weapons set that includes four separate AA systems.

ZPU-1
ZPU-2
ZPU-4
ZSU-23-2

Also, lesser common, are the technicals that have repurposed rocket pods from Russian helicopters.
