|«|| An agile, lightly protected vehicle for 5-6 soldiers – depending on the configuration. Qilin offers safe and fast operating speeds with superior levels of mobility and maneuverability. It is highly adaptable to severe, rugged and restrictive terrains while providing off-road, cross-country mobility under all types of weather conditions. CSAT Pacific forces primarily use the unarmed variant and the armed variant fitted with a 6.5 mm minigun.|
The Qilin is a 4x4 all-terrain, high-mobility vehicle designed to be light, fast and transportable by air.
It is available in two variants, a baseline unarmed version that lacks any weapons and an armed variant fitted with a gatling gun.
Unlike its NATO counterpart, the armed version does not sacrifice transportation capacity and can equally seat up to six passengers (including the gunner) regardless of the variant. It can be airlifted by Y-32 vehicle transports, as well via slingloading with Mi-290 cargo helicopters.
- Qilin: Baseline variant. It has enough seats to transport up to five passengers. All passengers are capable of firing out of the vehicle, but the vehicle itself is otherwise completely unarmed. The ring in the centre allows for a single passenger to stand up, giving them more clearance while firing on the move.
- Qilin (Armed): Armed variant of the Qilin. It can also transport the same amount of passengers (including the gunner) but has a 6.5mm gatling gun mounted on a turret ring located in the centre of the vehicle. The externally mounted gatling gun comes pre-loaded with a single 500 round belt box of 6.5mm ammunition, and has additional belt boxes stored in reserve totalling up to 1,000 rounds.
- Black: Pattern-less chrome black paint scheme. Has very limited uses outside of operations set during the night or in areas with very low visibility.
- Hex: Following a light tan/dark tan/dark green cell pattern camouflage, this is used in forested, grass plains, and desert environments.
- Green Hex: Following a dark tan/light green/dark green cell pattern camouflage, this is used in heavily forested and tropic environments.
- The Qilin is a slightly altered version of the real-world "Light Strike Vehicle Mark II", a fast attack vehicle developed by ST Kinetics Ltd of Singapore.
- The name "quilin" is derived from a Chinese mythological chimera-like creature, typically depicted as a combination of a Chinese dragon with a horse or a deer.
