Description / Specifications[edit]

The Tracked Dozer is a construction vehicle designed for commercial organisations.

Hull / Suspension[edit]

A generally box-shaped hull constructed from steel.

  • Length: 7.6m, Width: 3.6m, Height: 4.5m.
  • Overall Volume: approximately 123.2m³ (9.2 dTons).
  • Unloaded Weight: 77,800 kg.

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

The vehicle is fitted with a tracked suspension system.

  • The vehicle has a mediocre performance on metalled surfaces but has a good off-road capability.

Power / Transmission[edit]

A large internal combustion power plant using hydrocarbon fuel. The fuel is contained within a small protected tank.


  • Cruise Speed: 10 kph, Top Speed: 15 kph. Off-road Speed: less than 15 kph.
  • Range: 200 km at Cruise Speed, 150 km at Top Speed.


The body of the Tracked Dozer encloses the machinery. The crew cabin, located towards the center-top of the vehicle, is fitted with clear windows and contains one seat. 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.

There is no dedicated cargo storage, though there is adequate space within the cabin for small personal items.

  • Cargo Storage: 1m³ (0.1 dTons).
  • Maximum Load: limited only by storage space.

Equipment / Operations[edit]

Headlights and running lights. A spotlight is fitted to the exterior of the cabin roof.

  • Dozer Blade: a heavy metal plate mounted on the front of the vehicle, used to push objects. It is constructed from reinforced steel has dimensions of 3.6m x 2.1m x 0.05m. It connects to the body of the tractor by means of hydraulically operated arms that allow it to be raised, lowered and angled.
    • Maximum Force: approximately 25,000 kg pushing capability.
