Description / Specifications[edit]

A Basic Tourer is a spacious, relatively low tech vehicle designed for the civilian market.

Hull / Suspension[edit]

A boxy hull constructed from steel.

  • Length: 6m, Width: 1.8m, Height: 1.9m.
  • Overall Volume: approximately 20m³ (1.5 dTons).
  • Unloaded Weight: 2,000 kg.

The overall volume measures the vehicles maximum dimensions and includes its road clearance. The enclosed volume of the contoured hull is substantially lower.

The vehicle is fitted with a wheeled suspension system mounted on axles.

  • The vehicle performs well on metalled surfaces but has a relatively limited off-road capability.

Power / Transmission[edit]

A small internal combustion power plant using hydrocarbon fuel: the design is basic and it has a relatively poor power to weight ratio. The fuel is contained within a protected tank.


  • Cruise Speed: 60 kph, Top Speed: 85 kph. Off-road Speed: less than 25 kph.
  • Range: 600 km at Cruise Speed, 450 km at Top Speed.

Crew / Passengers[edit]

The crew compartment consists of an enclosed centrally located cabin fitted with clear windows and containing two front seats and four rear seats – two additional passengers can be accommodated on the rear seats though such arrangements are cramped. The vehicle has basic environmental protection (the hull is weatherproof but is not sealed), and is fitted with interior lights. The driver's position is fitted with basic mechanical controls. A console provides data such as engine temperature and velocity.

A spacious luggage trunk is located at the rear of the vehicle.

  • Cargo Storage: 1.2m³.
  • Maximum Load: 1,500 kg (including passengers) before performance is dramatically impaired.


Headlights and running lights.

History / Background[edit]
