Default Hilux Hits 90MPH!

Figured out a way that Imelda the Wonder Truck can break the speed limit.

Looks like a quick burst and it's already losing speed!

Yeah, pre-WilderNest deploy terminal velocity is 78MPH. With the camper open, we just gracefully float to the LZ with provisions to support 2 Air Commandos for up to 10 days. This is an unclassified shot of us during our proving ops. After all the trail protection is added, the USAF Special Operations Command is considering employing us as a forward tactical support vehicle. We've been designated Imelda, Slow Moving, Uparmored (Heavy), Battlefield Airstrip Vehicle (ISMUHBAV). The STTs of the 22nd STS at McChord were saying it like "Is-mah-baav", although mostly we just said Izzie.
