At the teleremote controls in the back of one of the retrofitted troopys.

The retrofit included the installation of RCT's Controlmaster tele-remote platform, Muirhead Engine Protection systems and Ausprotec Maxi Vision Camera for reverse vision.

Besides RCT's products its technicians installed several additional items requested by the client.

These included standalone air conditioning, Ice Pak and rear personnel carrier to support the condenser, a custom bull bar and UHF radios.

The front passenger chair was also removed and an alloy floor plate installed to allow the operator easy and safe access and egress from the vehicle.

The rear windows were also removed and sheet metal installed to increase durability and safety of the vehicle.

A bulkhead was also installed to increase connection points.

The modifications to the troop carriers were significantly different to any other light vehicle RCT had previously completed.
