Steps To Reproduce

Use:

Get in all three MRAPs and drive towards the mines (marked by red smoke). Remember to player setDamage 0 after testing each MRAP. I would suggest testing the Strider last to avoid having to restart the mission.

Well, it seems this is intended:

it cannot protect its passengers from large explosives or land mines due to using a flat bottom as opposed to a traditional V-shape hull like the Hunter.
It is incorrectly classified in-game as an MRAP

Hello.

Thank you for the report. We will have a look at it, though this is quite tricky and will need further discussion in the team.
