Technicals are civilian vehicles, such as SUVs or pickup trucks, that have been modified for military use. A technical is not a specific vehicle model, but rather a class of vehicles that are used by unconventional forces. Such vehicles often are up-armored, and armed with heavy machine guns, rockets, mortars, or even anti-air cannons. Technicals are incredably flexible and cheap, and are a favorite among third-world armies and rebel units. They can also be extremely maneuverable, depending on the vehicle type. Another user of technicals are special forces units, who can use rugged and reliable trucks to both remain incognito on patrols, and PMCs who cannot buy legitimate military hardware due to legal or cost restrictions.
