Wish I had a buddy who was an Amtracker, so I could check this out. There MIGHT be some rudimentary climate control in the 'Trac...

9 tonnes hitting the water there,powered by a Merlin engine,the exhaust used to glow cherry red on them,not really a good idea when you consider their main cargo was artillery ammo and leaky fuel cans !

Jean: Alright, the Agency is interested in adding a few of these Alvis FV623 amphibious vehicles to our arsenal. You three cyborgs are all qualified to drive so you'll do the testing.

Laine: Cool...what do you need us to do, sir?

Jean: First, bring it up to full speed and jump it into the river.

Kara, Allison, Laine: Are you serious?

Jean: Of course I'm serious. Why wouldn't I be?

Kara: Well...sir...it's just that you usually discourage that sort of thing.

Jean: When you do it with rental cars & Agency motor pool vehicles yes...but this is different.

Allison: And we're seriously not gonna get in trouble?

Jean: (getting annoyed) No, you aren't.

Laine: Really?

Jean: Yes.

Kara: Really?

Jean: Yes, damn it! Now just drive the damn thing into the river!

Britney: (approaching from behind) Um...Jean, sir...I think I accidentally bumped the parking brake on that big green truck. It rolled down the hill into the river.

Jean: W-what!?

Britney: It's already floated about a half kilometer downstream, sir.

What kind of topsey-turvey world have we slipped into where Marisa is complaining about not having heated seats and Kara is roughing it?

Not really the Pagani's cup of tea, but it does look like something Jethro and Monty might have come across on a mission:

Precisely... if they move quickly, then they might encounter chop, and that simply Would Not Do. *eyeroll*

Personally I like it... and yes, it does look like something J+M may encouter.

As to the speed, 22.5knots isn't exactly hanging around either. Reading between the lines though, the intention was for efficiency over range rather than all out speed. The hull design is screaming "wave piercer", which would back that assumption (look at the old "Earth Race" boat)... with the added benefit that chop shouldn't really bother it... it'll go through rather than being bounced around.
