This is based on the final military version of the Cessna 337 (called the O-2 in US service). It is a cross between 2 real-world examples: the FTB337G Milirole, a STOL conversion known as the ‘Lynx’ in the Rhodesian Air Force and the Summit Sentry

This is the MP ‘Super-Lynx’, an aircraft that is more heavily armed than the US O-2; it carries 2 MMG pods on its roof and is equipped with four standard NATO MALL-4A pylons mounted beneath the wings, each able to carry a max load of 159 kg (350 lb)

Potential missions include forward air control, helicopter escort, light air-to-ground attack, convoy protection, maritime patrol, six-seat personnel carrier, light cargo transport, medevac (up to 2 stretcher cases),  aerial recon & photography, psychological warfare and airborne discharge.  Morrow Project planners assumed that the most common missions would not involve combat – but wanted to include all options.
