The Vulcan Armored Car was a combat vehicle used by the Earth Federation Forces. The vehicle was a half track, combining regular tires on the front end with caterpillar treads in the rear. Armed with a 60mm vulcan gun, the vehicle was originally intended for anti-air use, but it was redeployed for base defense due to its ability to penetrate the armor of Zeon’s MS-06F Zaku II. However, the vulcan gun was ineffective against heavily armored amphibious suits like the MSM-03 Gogg.
