Technicals refer to the many militarised pick-up trucks that are extremely versatile forms of transport and easily adapted ti combat situations. The trucks themselves consist of many different makes and models, however such contrived details mean little when most technical’s in operation have been reconstructed far beyond manufacturer or civilian standards. The trucks are normally driven into battle by its owner however there is also no lack of replacement drivers should the worse happen.
Technical wrecks are quickly cannibalised for replacements parts to keep the rest of the fleet operational, of course the aforementioned differing models does mean that most battle scarred trucks look like visual patchworks of mismatched body kits. A very common adaptation, so common in fact it is almost standard practice, is that the body of the driver and engine compartments is often reinforced with more solid materials and bulletproof glass where possible meanwhile dozer blades are affixed to shift sand and thorough measures are undertaken to prevent sand from troubling any of the important components.
Technical’s can act as passable military transport, its decent capacity being failed by the protection it affords to its occupants, however they been put to use as effective infantry fighting vehicles. It was an easy decision mounting all manner of machine guns on a technical’s flatbed. The unrivalled view and overall mobility counteract to some degree the vulnerability of the gunner position. It may be poorer sibling compared to its counterparts in the other factions, however it is a cheap and accessible alternative for the African Warlords, and some people are willing to do anything to gain their freedom.
