design by Kyle Platte
This version of the Masai was designed for infantry support and light skirmishing It sports a pair of independent remote turrets and a set of 9cm Knifejack seeker missiles. Although they cannot stand up to the firepower of heavy armor, their ability to move through rough terrain makes them excellent guerrilla fighters and patrol vehicles. Their weapons are also designed to give close support to ground troops, providing light artillery with the grenades and precision strike ability with the missiles or guns.

The Masai has a power shortfall of 1.547 Mw, caused by the massive drain of the gauss weapons. To counter this, the Masai carries a battery capable of firing the gauss MMGs' entire ammo supply (four cassettes). The battery is recharged automatically from the onboard power supply. The Masai is capable of folding it's legs to allow the body to take cover behind buildings, trees or small hills. It takes a full three seconds to raise or lower the vehicle in this manner. When hidden properly, only the Masai's turrets and sensors are exposed over the cover. Each turret is operated by a separate gunner and is fully independent of the other. Each has a separate ballistic computer and sights. The missiles may be fired by either gunner as they desire.
Both the MMG and the grenade launcher on the Masai have ammo selectors, allowing the operator to select between different cassettes of ammo. Ammo cannot be shared between the two weapon without servicing the weapons.
