Shadows of Empire
Technicals are typically light civilian vehicles that have converted into platforms for heavy weapons. Usually these take the form of Recoilless Rifles or Heavy Machine Guns, but other weapons are not unheard of. The name stems from a story that a foreign journalist visiting Khand entered the cost of hiring Vairag mercenaries as a ‘technical’ expense on his expense account.
Technicals have the advantage of being cheap and easily made. They are fast and hard hitting, but are also very fragile when used against forces equipped with armoured vehicles.
