Designed and deployed in YE 30, the Ketsurui Zaibatsu's Light Utility Truck is a standardized, mass-production version of the various types of Old Utility Truck. It is fielded by the Star Army of Yamatai and the United Outer Colonies Peacekeeping Forces; captured LUTs have also found widespread use in the NMX.
Type 30 utility trucks are open-top 4 x 4 trucks with seats for two people. The driver sits on the left side while a passenger sits on the right. Behind the seats is the cargo bed, where the soldiers can store supplies and equipment. The trucks utilize a Durandium Alloy unibody construction and are quite durable. Their windshields are made of Transparent Durandium. The trucks are equipped with seat belts.
A gun mount is available for the trucks. It is an rounded rectangular arch that sits over the front of the cargo bed, just behind the driver and co-driver seats. A gunner can stand in the back and fire a mounted GP-12 Phased Pulse Rifle, Type 30 35mm Machine Gun, Ke-M4-W2901 Light Armor Service Rifle, or other weapon.
The trucks are available in different varieties to fit different mission needs:
These standard models have maximum cargo room.
