Mitsubishi "Musashi" SWAT Mini-Tank is a vehicle in Solo of Fortune 2.

Sourcebook Description[]

In today's modern metropolis, political dissidents, religious fanatics and heavily-armed cyberpsychos are almost constantly on the rampage. SWAT teams have faced increased danger from nihilist terrorism, while corporate border skirmishes pose a serious threat to public safety. There is no room in this environment for the under-armed cops of yesterday. Today's enforcers need high-mobility firepower at the tactical level!
The well-prepared police force will use the Musashi mini-tank to protect their city's populace and face paramilitary crime head-on. This compact Mini-Tank is perfectly adapt-ed to SWAT-style urban combat tactics, capable of fire-suppression, sup-port, and even direct attack. A full neural-interface operating system, employing drive-by-light technology and enhanced fiber-optic camera systems, allows one officer to operate all mini-tank functions. The Musashi can carry a team of cops into danger with complete safety, or evacuate wounded with equal security—and it packs enough punch to deal with corporate-operation threat levels.
Its low-pressure 75mm cannon can use a variety of ammo for all purposes: fire foam, gas, fragmentation,rubber buckshot, shaped-charge, HESH, and proximity-fused anti-air shells can be mixed in the 40-round hopper. The computer auto loader can select the right shell for the job on command. The 10mm HIVE system, adapted from the ACPA weapon,also does double duty (antipersonnel/air-defense), mixing AP, rubber bullets, and explosive rounds (1/2 damage to SP or SDP, but double damage for flesh). This weapon suite allows you to master any situation or environment the chassis can get you into...or out of
