S-Mart Balder Recreational Vehicle
One of the wonderful things about S-Mart, is their willingness to resurrect old ideas, and introduce them to new elements. This is just one of the many examples of S-Mart's adventurous productive record - the first, and only known armored RV on the open market in North America. Upon the Balder's appearance on the market orders came flooding in from all directions. Civilians, governments, and mercenaries from all over were ordering the Balder, and not necessarily just one at a time. Entire mercenary companies wanted these rough and tumble RVs to house their troops on the road. Governments wanted them to house officers on field assignments. Civilians wanted them for cheap mobile housing, travel, and as mobile offices to use at work sights. All in all, the Balder in it's short existence has made waves, and opened up the eyes of manufacturers all over North America to the para-military market, for vehicles useful to both civil and military applications alike.
