LS Army M5 Gremlin Multifunctional Utility/Logistics and Equipment (MULE) vehicle

The completed model. The M5 Gremlin MULE is used by the LS Army as an escort for infantry and convoys, as well as an automated resupply cargo carrier in high-risk environments

 

The design is a mashup of the real-life XM1219 ARV-Assault-Light and the cancelled XM1217 Transport. As such, it can carry up to one tonne of cargo in the lower compartment.

 

The turret is equipped with one M2 Browning .50 cal. HMG, four TOW Anti-Tank rockets and a pair of quadruple smoke grenade launchers.

 

Sensor packages include three video cameras with FLIR/Night Vision capability (two for driving and one for turret weapons targeting), two laser scanner arrays for obstacle avoidance (beneath front cameras) and a ground radar package atop the turret camera.

 

Six articulated wheel arms powered by 3-phase electric motors allow the MULE to traverse over shallow steps, ditches, rubble mounds and other off-road environments.

 

Based on an official Alpha Company Forums LEGO Military MOC Community model (Robin "GreenLead" Chang)
