Originally developed as a competitor in the Imperial "compact assault vehicle" trials. The resulting design is one-third slower and significantly less well armored than the winner of the trials. While the MLC-3 weapon system offers a slight edge in power delivered on target, it has a much shorter effective engagement range. Additionally, the MLC-3 weapons are oriented to cover only the forward firing-arc, unlike the partially-turreted design of the trial winner. This design has found a home among planetary militias, corporate security forces, and mercenary units. It frequently turns up in the hands of pirates and Rebels.
