The low upkeep of this vehicle empowers the gatherings to be quickly changed on the field as opposed to taking it back to the base workshop for any repairs. The Ocelot LPPV has been worked to be sufficiently adaptable to play out various missions as and when required. The gatherings of the vehicle can be changed and fitted in 30 minutes to tweak it for particular missions.
