M-299 All-Terrain Jeep
The M-299 body is comprised of mixed steel/plastic paneling over a steel frame. The body is capable of providing fair protection from all small arms fire, good protection from small grenade and shell fragments, poor protection against heavier infantry weapons, such as a 12.7mm machinegun round, and no protection from mecha-mounted weaponry, such as the Zentraedi 22.3mm HE autocannon round. The crew area is open air and provides no environmental support.
This four-man vehicle was used by the United Nations Defense Forces as their basic mode of ground transportation. A variety of vehicles are in use throughout the world, although the M-299 was used heavily by the Robotech forces.
This vehicle continued to be used by the Army of the Southern Cross forces in many areas. The REF used the M-299 in limited quantities after the introduction of the M-304 and M-306, primarily on-board SDF vessels for personnel transportation.
