This is the Presentation Model sent for post-prototype trials, and is missing the 7.62mm MGs, and the 20mm cannon from the turret.
The following version is the standard variant, with a turret roof 7.62 MG for defence against infantry, and an internal 20mm cannon for soft targets. The Varrenking was designed as a do-everything vehicle, able to support infantry and mechanised advances over any terrain. Less suited to urban warfare, the Varrenking is still a capable tool in any combat environment due to high performance armour and powerful weaponry.
