Lore
The original Vector II was meant for the SLDF's various needs as a universal platform. Though not an Omni vehicle by design, the reduced individual cost of vehicles was meant to appeal to larger military buyers to make purchases of whole fleets of Vector IIs as well as to retain the original Vector's simplicity in maintenance. Unfortunately the collapse of the second Star League in 3085 ruined their initial plans. Production of the Transport VT-II-T had already begun, however, as there was a pressing and clear demand for them regardless of the absence of their intended main buyer. The other variants, however, were left as prototypes and trial vehicles.

Unwilling to let the effort go to waste, General Motors put out a tender to gauge interest as well as sending said prototypes and test pilots out for live fire training trials among potential buyers.

Capabilities
The Hybrid variant is less specialized than the base heavy transport model with a 4 ton troop bay. Designed to drop a squad of battle armour troops or a platoon of regular infantry afterwards lingering to support them against infantry or vehicles. For which it has an MML 3 that can load specialized ammunition depending on the mission.

Yes, I also approve this design. Decent speed, an MML with all the array of ammo available to it and an infantry-sweeping SXPL - what's not to love? You can also get some BA in that thing wherever you want!

Not seeing anything about cargo bay size, will it deploy all BA squad variants, even assault?

Infantry Body 4.0
Stated there. 4 ton infantry bay. Enough for a platoon of most types of infantry or a squad of standard class BA. Most likely not assault-class though.

I usually find it in the fluff, I will have to give it another look.
