This vehicle is a militarized version of a common Central-European manufactured 4x4 4-door pickup, popular from 2010 on. Modified by Rheinmetall to meet German military requirements, Steel Beasts models two versions of this vehicle: a four-door unarmed “civilian” version in Royal Netherlands Army markings, and a four-door armed “technical” version carrying a two-man scout section. Both versions may be manned at the Driver's (F9) and Commander's (F7) positions, while the “technical” version adds the Gunner's (F6) and Squad Leader's (F11) positions as well.
Produced in substantial numbers, this vehicle has worldwide distribution, but is concentrated in the Americas, Middle-East, and sub-Saharan Africa.
As an armed technical, this vehicle is available in two configurations:
- The standard 3.3t Technical-V in Royal Netherlands Army markings.
- A “civilian” 3.3t Technical-V in police markings with lights.
The technical version of the 3.3t Truck-V can be armed with one of the following weapons:
|12.7mm DShK HMG||B-32 12.7mm AP||60/800||1600|
|12.7mm NSVT HMG||B-32 12.7mm AP||60/800||1600|

As with other armed vehicles F2 brings up the mounted weapon's sights while in the gunner's position. Thermal sights are available for mounted ATGM systems (Num +), but all other weapons feature "iron" sights only. NVG views are available at all crew positions under appropriate lighting conditions if the vehicle is so equipped (rev. 2.640). Note that as of revision 4.016 NVGs may be used with certain weapon sights.
