==Overview:==
Frodo Infantry Platform exists at the intersection of standardization and
marketing.

Shoe-horning in a Nissan 125 into a 20-ton APC makes more sense to a
logisticians then an engineer, but the former often trumps in the eyes of
MBAs, even if a spat of fires in the engine compartment led to crippling
hardware add-ons. This, in addition to how restricted access to the drivetrain
has become, in a vehicle desperate to conserve passenger compartment space for
the massive backpacks needed to maintain directed energy weaponry in the
field.



==Capabilities:==
Not blazing fast, nor heavily armored, the Frodo can see it's charges safely
through shady terrain, much more quickly than they could otherwise on
powerarmor jumpjet or foot, and any such ambush as may have been set-up by
indigs of even immoderate means.

Furthermore: With a bare minimum of hand-holding, and the investment of an
extra 15 minutes, two Frodos will stack upon one another within a single
DropShip bay.

What? Where you expecting to hike across the whole damn content wearing a Phalanx suit? Those things don't have engines

All prices adjusted with the necessary 6,667 for the bigger engine.

Frodo Infantry Platform exists at the intersection of standardization and
marketing.

Shoe-horning in a Nissan 125 into a 20-ton APC makes more sense to a
logisticians then an engineer, but the former often trumps in the eyes of
MBAs, even if a spat of fires in the engine compartment led to crippling
hardware add-ons. This, in addition to how restricted access to the drivetrain
has become, in a vehicle desperate to conserve passenger compartment space for
the massive backpacks needed to maintain directed energy weaponry in the
field.



==Capabilities:==
Not blazing fast, nor heavily armored, the Frodo can see it's charges safely
through shady terrain, much more quickly than they could otherwise on
powerarmor jumpjet or foot, and any such ambush as may have been set-up by
indigs of even immoderate means.

Furthermore: With a bare minimum of hand-holding, and the investment of an
extra 15 minutes, two Frodos will stack upon one another within a single
DropShip bay.
