Default Missing Unit Names?

If found that the Paneuro Hovertruck was called the "Renault", but I can't find a name for the Combine Hovertruck. Does anyone have any idea what it was?

I can't find any information about Combine or Paneuro: Infantry Battlesuit, Truck or LAD names. The LAD might be a Combine only unit. Does anyone have any more information on them?

The Paneuro GEV-PC in GURPS Ogre is listed as a "Napoleon", but a "Seguro" everywhere else? I wonder why?

I have an 'Ogre Miniatures Combine Set 10 Fast Convoy' cover at my fingertips and the Combine Unit Reference Sheet printed inside calls the LAD "Archer", while the hovertruck is referred to as "Hovertruck"; barely worthy of even having a capitalized H...

It looks like both the Combine and Paneuros were supposed to receive LADs in the Ogre Designer's Edition; unfortunately, they didn't make the final cut.

Archer...Thanks!

I wonder if Laser Towers, Laser Turrets, Radar Jammers, or Radar Stations would have got cool names?

That's an old pre-production image. A lot of things changed in the final product (shapes, units, etc). Don't lose hope on seeing the LADs down the road. Worst case, you can at least roll your own.

Upon further memory dredging, there also was the Combine's "Unity" Missile Crawler and the Paneuropean "Draco" Missile Crawler.

Canonically, the Combine didn't use any GEV Mobile Command Posts.

There's an image over on BGG in the Ogre section, showing an artwork for a Combine Battlesuit, named the "Vandal":
