The Coyote FAV4 was a test prototype, submitted for consideration by Joe brass in the years shortly before the adoption of the Hammer, when a replacement was being sought for the aging VAMPs (which, by the way, were retained, and, in many cases, improved by the team). Though it was never adopted as a standard operational vehicle, Joe Team U.S.A. bought small numbers of Coyotes to serve alongside VAMPs in the field. They were primarily utilized, however (and still are), to maintain security around the vast perimeters of G.I. Joes many installations: a task to which they are perfectly suited, due to their higher top speed, increased stowage capacity, and the superior anti-personnel firepower of the minigun.
