The Kodiak armoured command vehicle is an extensively modified version of the Bear which foregoes transport capacity in favour of a battlefield command centre. This provides a mobile base from which a UCM commander and staff can direct frontline operations.
The Kodiak features a large communications dish and electronic warfare suite mounted on a dedicated trailer allowing the Kodiak to conduct high fidelity ground-orbit communications at a robust level of encryption. In the most desperate of situations, this gives the Kodiak the option to direct tactical directed energy orbital strikes.
The Kodiak is also equipped with much thicker armour than the basic Bear, providing excellent protection to the crucial assets it contains, making the Kodiak the AHQ's only sensible choice for a frontline command centre.
