** It returns in ''TDR 2000'' and is notable for being ThatOneBoss. It appears as the final target in the last mission, driven by the police commissioner who has the [[spoiler: killswitch to the nuke he had armed]]. [[TimedMission You have to wreck him before the timer runs out]]. And you don't have much time. And his Suppressor is NighInvulnerable, only being [[AttackItsWeakPoint weak on it's underside]] so you'll have to flip him on his side somehow. All this while you're being [[FlunkyBoss rammed around and grenaded by a bunch of lesser cop cars]]. [[NintendoHard Yeah]]. [[spoiler: [[GuideDangIt Unless you can find the Nuke power up somewhere near your starting position]] which can be used to [[OneHitKill wreck it in one shot]], provided that you yourself stay clear from the explosion...]]

** It looks suspiciously like a repainted M8 Greyhound, a WW2-vintage armoured car used in the reconnaissance role. It had a small calibre cannon and a crew of four, but no troop transport capacity.

* ''{{Rifts}}'' has nearly as many [=APC=]s, if not more. Such as the heavily-armed Coalition Mark V, the amphibious Iwo Jima-class hovercraft, or the German Leopard III, which not only carries infantry, but can also lug around a ''small tank''' for extra firepower.

* That said, the Russians apparently still believe in the IFV concept, up to including ''both'' types of vehicles in all of the weight classes of their prospective lineup: [[TankGoodness the tank-based]] T-15 includes both the heavier armed[[note]]The current version is armed with the ubiquitous 30-mm autocannon, though in the future a 57-mm or a telescoping 45-mm upgrades are projected[[/note]] IFV version, and the lighter armed APC variant (their armor being pretty much the same). The lighter "Kurganets-25" platform mounts pretty much the same turrets, but the IFV version is also better armored as well, while the wheeled "Boomerang" platform is primarily an APC, but also features the more heavily armed version, with some designers even proposing fitting it with the [[GlassCannon 125-mm turret from a "Sprut" light tank]].

*Honorary mention goes to the Schützenpanzer lang Hs. 30 also known as the Schützenpanzer 12-3, the fisrt German APC/IFV after the Wiederbewaffnung. At a time were other APC only sported an .50 machinegun or equivalent it was armed with a 20 mm autocannon that could, under the right circumstances, even threaten (certain) tanks of the era.

-->A planned production of 300 was cut to 60 due to shortage of engines. Issue is limited to Armoured Reconnaissance and Special Anti-tank units. In both roles they have proved highly popular with users, exceptional speed and cross-country performance giving them a survival rate three times that of any other NATO combat vehicle. A major drawback of the type is the difficulty of recovery if battle damage results in total loss of power. Plans for a special transporter were shelved when production was curtailed.
