Looking at some pics it appears to be a pintel mount. But yeah, the no armor thing wouldn't make them very viable, even in a chassis and crossbow setting.

Sand rail = light off-road vehicle. Barely any armor or weapons. The idea was recon (I presume). Came out after CW Tanks didn't it?

http://www.fastattackvehicle.com/history.html says 1982, which long predates _CWT_. (I recall seeing FAVs listed in _Twilight: 2000_ as a vehicle selection.)

Yes: ADQ 10-3 was Fall 1991, Car Wars Tanks was 1990.
