As the Bot War front widen, it became painfully obvious to the Democracy high command that a more direct approach to the Bot threat is required. With the Defiance surge tank being expensive and difficult to produce Democracy scientists have managed to place similar technology into a more primitive delivery system.

Mounting this weapons system on the cheaper and easier to produce Honey Badger chassis allows this valuable weapon to be widely available to Democracy frontline troops.
The Squirrel Buggy was designed by Jack MacGyver to be deployed from the Buffalo in times when that little extra firepower is required. Equipped with twin anti Bot gatling guns the buggy is a remote piloted drone that may even operate on limited AI if Buffalo is destroyed or Jack is incapacitated.
