The Hyena is much like the Fielder Car in that it was originally a vehicle brought by settlers and later modified to suit the new culture. These modifications include arming it with whatever was at hand and then providing a weapons turret for a projectile rifle in the passenger seat space. Unlike Fielders which tend to be owned by families, the Hyena is often owned and run by mechanics and other specialists that are in demand. They are also commonly used as ‘heavy’ combat vehicles and some have larger weapon turrets installed in the flatbed taking up nearly all the usable space. Some ‘combat versions’ include flak guns, rocket launchers, and dual anti-personnel projectile guns.
