My second vehicle design:

Assault Gun GEV

Equipment Item             VSP : BVP     Spaces   Cost
Vehicle, class 2 10 : 0 10 10
Armor class 2 10 : 14 10 14
Fusion Generation Plant 10 : 14 10 22
Fast GEV 10 : 14 10 30
1 class 3 HVC in Fixed mount 10 : 14 4 54
with Enhanced fire control 10 : 14 4 66
1 class 1 RFAC in Fixed mount 10 : 14 2 71
Basic ECM 10 : 14 2 86

Turns out I have the same model (from Fortress Figures, but don't seem to be listed on the website any more) as Javelin98, who did his own stats as the H-66 Leichtjagdpanzer: (link no longer valid)

Javelin's version makes the main gun a hyper-kinetic penetrator (HKP), but I didn't think the barrel was long or thin enough for that; I went for the High Velocity Cannon (HVC).

Javelin put a class 2 laser on it; I saw the co-axial weapon and thought it looked more like a rapidfire autocannon (RFAC).

There's something on the upper structure that could be a machinegun; I took that as the "free" APSW.

Excellent! I used to do that all the time.

I still have my cards for all my OGRE/GEV minis and my Renegade Legion Armies from Andy's page.

Bill you keep piquing my interest in Dirtside. Downloaded the game three years ago, now I am going to have to read it.

With all the Dirtside and 6mm skirmish talk, I've made the plunge myself.

Yeah more dirtside 2 posts!!!!!

It remains one of my favorite games in 6mm (even tracked down a hard copy), just seem to capture an awesome hammer slammers atmosphere (my other favorite is hammer slammers…..)

Where's the miniature for this?

It's from Fortress Figures, and comes on a plastic sprue – but I don't see it in their website currently.

Javelin has a picture of it on his website (link above).

It's really good to see Dirtside being played again. I love that game.

Is this the vehicle?

If so it's on the website under products of the past with the text:
This is an archive of the old product line. I'll add to this as I find photos. I still have the molds for all of these so if you really want something, contact me for special orders.

Yeah, FF discontinued the range, but when I emailed them a couple years back, the proprieter said he might consider special requests.

I used a HEL/2 for the coax simply because HELs are unparalleled when it comes to infantry suppression! Sure, they're weak as all get out against just about anything else, but for infantry, you can pin a team down from across the table (which is especially handy if you have a GMS team trying to ruin your day).

High energy lasers are good for their range, but it does seem a bit gamey to use them that way. Effective, but gamey.
