Description

After the release of the M8 SpyRover, interest from some overseas buyers popped up. It seems our friends over at KI6 in Kerbland were looking for a new spy car, and thought the M8 would be perfect. Dang it, we did it again. We mean, our friends at a government agency that shall remain unnamed.

The only thing was that they needed it weaponized, but to still look like a normal car. It took some fiddling, but in the end, we managed to get it done! Of course, we had to add some panels to hide the weapons, and then beef up the frame, widen the uncarriage, and then add extra engines and wheels to offset the higher weight.

In the end, it bloated up to 13 metric tons. But hey, now it’s armored, or should we say, armoured. It also has an afterburning turbofan instead of that oversized hair drier it had before, so it’s way cooler now.

The M8 II has three methods of propulsion. SIX wheel electric drive provides basic, low speed motivation. For times when a little more is required, it features an afterburning jet engine and FOUR rockets for good measure. Power comes from a huge, front mounted fuel cell with not one but TWO nuclear battery backups and a Kroots-Type blower, producing a whole bunch of horsepower (the exact amount is classified).

Be sure to read the owner’s manual! Don’t do what James Kerman 00-aught-zero did and blow the thing to pieces. I mean, at least until after you read it. If you already shredded it, check the Action Group Info for the basics.

All the modifications made it look like something out of a post-apocolyptic movie, but we bet that nobody is going to mess with you if you’re driving it. If they do, just hit Action-0 to deploy the hidden missiles, then Action-9 to make them reconsider their messings.
