- PlayStation Store description
The Patriot Shellshock is a downloadable remote-control Big Rig for MotorStorm RC. Its body resembles various military armoured vehicles, such as the Oshkosh M-ATV , the XM1202 Mounted Combat System, with some design elements coming from other military vehicles, such as the M8 Greyhound.
The Shellshock is currently available in the PlayStation Store for the price of €0.25/£0.21/$0.25.
- The Shellshock could arguably be considered a Mud Plugger due to the fact that it shares numerous traits that other Mud Pluggers share.
- The number "4077" stenciled on the front of the vehicle could, albeit unlikely, be a reference to the 4077, an Army Hospital in the M*A*S*H television series.
- The Shellshock is the first vehicle within the MotorStorm Series, to be a drivable tank-like vehicle.
- The Shellshock strongly resembles some mud plugger-like vehicles that are only seen in Tyler 's Prologue in MotorStorm: Apocalypse . These vehicles do not have a gun turret, but they do appear to have a hatch on the roof in the same location as the mount for the Shellshock's turret.
