==Overview:==
The Rhino is what one would expect, an infantry vehicle that gets troops into
combat, nothing more.

The vehicle is one of many APCs found in the Inner Sphere and known space.

The Rhino MICV, is sold as a standard unit, you get the basic armored chassis
and Deimos Weapons Consortium will help your military install the needed
electronics and weapons. Basic unit carries up to 10 tons of cargo or
soldiers. Roughly ten 1 ton battle armored soldiers can ride in one. Rear ramp
drops to allow for fast exiting of the vehicle during combat and allowing the
vehicle to provide cover for the disembarking troopers.

The engine differs from most common engines in that it has it's own air and
fuel system that is contained to avoid issues of chemical or radiological
battlefields causing issues with the engine and thus allowing your forces to
continue on with their mission. Added in a built in NBC filtration system and
you what you need to protect your troops.

You place an order and Deimos representatives will arrive with their dropships
and unload, providing the needed technical services to get your army set up
with the Rhino, spare parts are also included. Once setup Deimos leaves and
your forces have their new MICV.

the fusion/fractional accounting Variation keeps the free weight and ads the omnipresent 2 ERML turret with 1.5 tons more armor.

cool Thing about that version is that all internal Equipment variations would be identical for both versions, only variations that add a turret will not be compatible to the Fusion-Version.

But it does open a market point for them, hey look for a few more C-bills we can sell you an MICV with a turret and no fuel issues and look it has cool lasers...or something shinny and cool...marketing is good at that thing.

what ads to the Marketing is that you described the ICE-engine as being "contained"
i think this makes it thinkable to upgrade ICE- to Fusion-Versions.
"buy cheap now, update later"
and if your vehicle is lost, but the engine is ok, you could swap it into another one.

I like the idea of a real modular switch out like that.
