— Battlelog Description
The 'Phoenix' acts as a light transport for troop transport, with an attached grenade launcher that has been fitted at the back in conjunction with the existing manned machine gun on top. Both of these weapons replace the remote-operated HMG on the HMMWV.
The Phoenix's machine gun has 360° coverage, but part of this view is obstructed by the grenade launcher and its collar plate. The grenade launcher only has 180° coverage of the front half of the vehicle.
Although offering more cover than the HMMWV, the gunner positions are much more exposed. While reloading the grenade launcher, cover from gunfire can be sought in the other seats if they aren't occupied.
