** Special mention goes to the A3-Goliath IFV from Battlefield 2142, a truly massive vehicle armed with grenade launchers, autocannons, and machine guns, with armor that is strong enough to withstand strikes ''from orbit''. Oh yeah, and its armor ''regenerates''. It usually takes a lot of heavy firepower to put that beast down.

* ''Videogame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'' features the flying, [[RecycledInSpace space version]], the Space Pirate ATC (Armoured Tactical Carriers), and their upgraded counterpart, the Assault Skiff. Both will drop off space pirates and continue to provide aerial support via laser fire. They have a weakness in the front-facing heat vents, subverting the 'armoured' aspect.

* ''Videogame/PlanetSide'' has several : The amphibious 5-seat Deliverers (which look like beefed-up futuristic Hummers) and their faction variants, with their own unique weapons. The Sunderer or "Bang Bus" is an absolutely massive bus covered in guns with the capability of carrying players in MAX armor and seating 11 users. The Sunder was later removed from the game and replaced with a uniquely armed variant for each faction, though all variants have a cattle catcher, an EMP blast ability, and ball turrets on the sides. ''Planetside 2'' only has the Sunderer, but it functions much better as an APC due to far better handling, [[CarFu ability to run over smaller vehicles]], and an array of support abilities like [[BaseOnWheels deploying to turn into a spawn point]]

*** As has been talked about with the Mi24 "Hind", and it's limitations with carrying troops while laden with ordinance: Getting rid of ammunition to make room to load infantry into your pseudo IFV when under fire is a self-solving problem.

** Another example is the [[SpiderTank AT-TE]] from Episode II and the Clone Wars TV series. Although not specifically referred to as a transport, it is one, and also mounts enough fire to be a respectable threat in their own right.

* During WorldWarII, the US fielded a simple vehicle known as the Landing Vehicle Tracked (LVT). In essence, this was a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin landing craft with tracks]] on it, capable of hitting the beach and rolling inland from there. It was originally intended to haul cargo ashore without forcing troops to drag heavy crates up the beach, but it didn't take long for it to be equipped with ever increasing amounts of armor protection and firepower. The Marines loved it, but lacking much in the way of mechanics, they were unable to maintain them. Typiaclly a Marine unit would roll ashore with a complement of LVTs, using them to provide mobile cover and fire support until they would break down and be abandoned where they stopped, and hope to get a replacement later.
