So Cool...

Why the heck is it so heavy?!? Does have an internally geared up? And just wow, it looks badass. Thanks for posting this

Thanks, Reason it is so


Reason it is so heavy is that it is built like a tank to be able to hold up to the rigors of combat ... being able to be dropped on the ground in a hurry with no risk of messing it up except maybe for a few paint scuffs.

It also needs to be able to carry 200+ lbs of weapons, ammo and gear, along with the rider.

I love the fact that almost everything is fixable on the go with the included tools.
