The Gentrifier is a welcome new addition to the Urban Assualt Vehicle line of products created by Chrysler.
It sports a large caliber 40mm auto cannon capable of piercing most brick facades on todays new construction. The auto-cannon comes with a range of rounds including Buck Shot (crowd control), Teflon Coated (For the damned COP Vehicles), and High Explosive for the times when you need to pulverize a nieghbors home. Tracer and standard Ball are also available.
The susspension has been beefed up in order better handle the recoile of the auto cannon so there will be less coffee spillage after stopping at your favorite Starbucks. It has also been made wider in order to better reach those pesky pedestrian who may be on a sidewalk just up the curb from normal tire range.
The paint scheme and dishevled outer shell provide camoflage and antitheft deterence. If someone is going to steal a vehicle, a rustbucket theme is usually not the ticket.
The drawbacks to this model is the lack of a small caliber weapon on a turret ring or a turret mounted weapon in general. This makes the vehicle vulnerable to WTO protestor crowds and sneak attack from any side but the front. The auto-cannon also will not depress enough to hit small sports cars.
