This is, quite simply, a frightful vehicle. No sane commander would put a fission plant in armored vehicles, unless they really wanted to poison the battlefield forever. Naturally this is the vehicle of choice for those insane balkanized hellholes where they've been nuking each other for a generation, the mutation rate is sky high, and the cockroaches have all just mysteriously teleported off planet, leaving behind a cryptic note: "So long, and thanks for all the crumbs."
