"In 2032, the PAC developed the UAZ-8 Ocelot FAV based on a stolen Bandit prototype, creating an equally dexterous, high-speed, off-road-capable transport medium. Substituting a boron carbide-filled resin aggregate armor system for the Bandit's ceramic-based matrix, the UAZ-8 Ocelot trades a negligible decrease in protection in exchange for an increase of five miles-an-hour maximum speed. Similar to its FAV contemporary, the UAZ-8 Ocelot also provides short-duration speed boosts through a hypochlorite-based, fuel-oxidization injector."
The driver only has access to Boost capability and the vehicle horn. The gunner has a light machine gun turret to repel infantry. A third passenger has access to all of their personal equipment.
Though protected by light armor, all passengers are exposed to some degree. Positioned in a rear interior seat, the gunner is the best protected, but less so than the gunner on the MK-15 Bandit. The passenger is highly exposed.
