The Hunters on Altis remain part of a fleet of military surplus vehicles purchased by the Altis Police Service in response to increasing gun crime on island, the versatility of the Hunter has proven effective in a variety of specialised and frontline policing roles.
- Troop transport
The Hunter is a four-wheel drive, all-terrain Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle manufactured by US arms factories to provide troops with enhanced protection. The armoured hull can withstand small arms fire, Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and 40mm Grenades. The V-Shaped design of the hull that deflects blasts away from the chassis and crew compartments, however this raises the centre of mass of the Hunter meaning the vehicle is susceptible to rolling when cornering at high speed.
The driver sits in the front left seat, with two small armoured front windows providing a narrow view of the area in front of the vehicle (at the cost of reduced visibility). The front-right and rear seats can hold anywhere from one to three passengers, of which none have any control over any of the vehicle.
Protection-wise, the Hunter is equal to, if not better, than its CSAT counterpart due to the driver not being exposed by a large windscreen. It is designed to be resistant against small arms fire ranging from 7.62 mm and up to 12.7 mm.
Unlike its softer-skinned AAF counterpart, it is well armoured enough to be able protect its passengers from medium to large explosives (like 40 mm grenades or demolition charges) and land mines/Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). This is because the Hunter uses a V-shaped hull that is designed to deflect the blast away from vital components in the chassis.
In terms of mobility, the Hunter has decent acceleration and handling on both paved roads and while off-road. However, it cannot match the Ifrit when it comes to speed due to being much heavier, nor the manoeuvrability or amphibious capability of the Strider.
The Hunter always has a seating capacity of four personnel; the driver and up to three passengers.
The Hunter currently does not support any upgrades from the Mod Shop
- The Hunter is based on the real-world "M-ATV" MRAP designed by the Oshkosh Corporation.
- The Hunter is able to survive the initial blast of a small/medium-sized IED but will blow up after a short time. Meanwhile, the initial blast of larger IEDs will instantly destroy it. Real-life MRAPs are designed to survive an IED blast and protect the crew from within regardless of how powerful the IED is.
- The Hunter has animated doors that open can be interacted with if you are in the drivers seat or have the keys to the vehicle.
