The MTV-7 is a light patrol and reconnaissance vehicle. MTV stands for Multi-Terrain Vehicle. Originally designed for the Imperial Army it was rejected and delegated to the world of private armies, government garrisons, and private citizens.

Manufactured by several medium to large engineering conglomerates, the MTV-7 is a single seat all terrain reconnaissance vehicle used by many security departments attached to low level mining and prospecting operations. Their popularity has also seen local constabularies and police forces use them to good effect as light patrol vehicles, as it is able to cover ground quickly and efficiently.

The vehicle has two modes which its wheels can be set to. The first is a ground hugging configuration where the vehicle has low clearance over the ground. Ideal for ice and plains this configuration is generally used the least though. In the other setting the cockpit sits high above the wheels.

Manufactured by several medium to large engineering conglomerates, the MTV-7 is a single seat all terrain reconnaissance vehicle used by many security departments attached to low level mining and prospecting operations. Their popularity has also seen local constabularies and police forces use them to good effect as light patrol vehicles, as it is able to cover ground quickly and efficiently. Herders and farmers have also used these vehicles to defend their livestock from rustlers. It is not known who the designers of the MTV-7 were, but early examples were in use by the Imperial Army during their inception. The light and medium blasters on this vehicle make good use of the swivel mounting and are placed on the same fitting in front of the driver for maximum advantage when targeting. Designed as an all-terrain vehicle, the MTV-7 has two barrel-like wheels both held in place by side arm actuators; this configuration allows the open topped cockpit compartment of the vehicle to remain steady at all times. Although fast and fairly manoeuvrable for a small wheeled vehicle, the benefits are few compared to the disadvantages.

Not designed to resist major attacks or participate in battle the MTV-7 has little armour, ionic capacity and sensors.
