M8 Lariat 1A2 as commissioned by Coorsota. The Lariat 1A2 is an upgraded 1A1L utilizing the same "Long Arm" turret albeit with an expanded bustle and modified internal configuration and an entirely new hull (although its visually very similar). The new hull allows for a flat engine deck to accommodate a new, smaller engine/transmission combination in addition to some type of active suspension. Additional differences include:
*Modified RWS allowing for the RWS to elevate to allow for better access to areas closer to the tank and for better operation in an urban environment
*Updated fire control, electronics, and gunner's primary sight
*Possible new main gun
*New Drivers and Commander's Periscopes and Imaging Systems for greater field of view and protection
The particular tank imaged carries an M55A dirt bike for scouting, reconnaissance, and route planning for the tank's armor group.
