S-Mart Jeep A & B
The S-Mart Jeep is a reproduction of the old Willy's Jeep MB known affectionately as the "Battlefield Taxi". Variations of this design were used throughout the 20th century and continued to soldier on in some places until the cataclysm. In it's original form it was not without flaws - namely being it's tendency to roll during high speed maneuvers. Despite this flaw the Jeep was durable and excelled at off road operations. Thus it was decided that S-Mart would produce this vehicle type, upgrade the engine to modern varieties with an option for multi-fuel or electric, and has countered the original tendency of rolling using a type of smart suspension that will counter for the force applied keeping the Jeep Land Rover steady and stable. It's small size as compared to the S-Mart Hummer, is an advantage in some cases, allowing the Jeep to enter small spaces, and maneuver through thin and crowded city streets. The Jeep is offered with a handful of options, including the Jeep-A variant that is a civilian model that can be covered with either a hard shell top or a convertible top. Then there is the Jeep-B military model that can again be covered with either top types, but it is also outfitted with a pintle mount in the back "bed" of the utility vehicle. Oversized covered tops for the purpose of moving large loads, ambulance duties, and the like are also available.

* Without the use of additional passenger doors when these are fitted passengers may only be struck unimpeded through the open doorways at the sides of the vehicle at a penalty of -4 to strike.
** The Oversized Passenger Cab is little more than a plastic-canvas mesh on a non-folding metal frame. The plastic is of a high resistance type, providing limited mega-damage protection. The penalties to strike inhabitants are similarly mirrored in this top variety as the previous types described.
*** These doors are little more than a plastic-canvas mesh on a metal frame. The plastic is of a high resistance type, providing limited mega-damage protection. Their use protects the passengers and driver from direct attacks, providing modest mega-damage protection from the sides.
**** Depleting the main body M.D.C. shuts the vehicle completely down, making it useless.

Systems of Note:
1. Pintle Mount: The military version is equipped with a 4' high pintle mount, in the "bed" of the Jeep, between the two rear seats. This too may be broken down with the removal of a few pins.
