==Description==
As the [[AFFC]] was looking for OmniVehicle designs, [[StarCorps Industries]] quickly reacted. While StarCorps Industries had only built 'Mechs, it gathered a military vehicle design team and released a prototype in record time. Though not the only OmniVehicle submitted for consideration, the Manteuffel (named after the long line of Lyran armor generals) revealed itself to be the best. Officially it fulfilled all requirements, but unofficially StarCorps Industries had greased all the right palms.
