Although they had an excellent reputation for heavy armoured vehicles, IHA never had much in the way of light vehicles to sell. That changed though with the introduction of the Grizzly. I well armoured "car" of sorts, and armed with a powerful rail cannon, the Grizzly made for an excellent wilderness patrol or escort vehicle. The crew compartment is set up similar to the attack helicopters of old with the 2 person crew siting in line, one behind the other. Sales were immediately and high in quantity once the Grizzly was made available to the market, much to the chagrin of Northern Gun.
