The LAV III is a Canadian designed and built LAV or Light Armored Vehicle. It was built by General Dynamics Land Systems and is the primary mechanized infantry vehicle of both the Canadian army and New Zealand army. It has a top speed of 100 kph and has an eight wheel drive. Although the turret gives it a higher center of gravity than originally anticipated it is does not roll over easily except on unstable terrain. When it came into service during the Gulf War it was highly admired by our NATO allies.
Overall I think this is the best vehicle I have ever built even though it does need some work. I plan to lengthen it by a few studs, redesign the turret, see if I can get a minifig to fit in the drivers seat and see if I can shorten it at all.

Recently I saw a hardsuit where the builder had used the monster fighters werewolf head for the head of the hardsuit. I had recently gotten the set and since I had no use for the werewolf I had simply put it aside until I thought of something. After seeing the hardsuit I was inspired to build my own and this was the result.
