The Ocelot weapons pod variant, which provides enhanced protection for fire support and special operations teams, can be integrated easily between missions to the standard chassis using light lift equipment. It can be fitted with manned or remote weapon systems using the standard ring on the WMIK* -like roll cage or a pintle mount.
