Description(Specification)[edit]

The Scout G-Tube is essentially an enclosed air-conditioned Grav Belt for two people. The G-Tube includes a heads-up status display of the operator. It has two seating posts (side by side), a 100 liter locker, a control panel, a heater/air-conditioner, landing and navigation lights, and a contential range communicator. Each passenger also has enough room to carry 25 liters of equipment.

A fuel capacity of 24 liters provides the power for 120 hours of 800kg thrust.

The ride in the G-Tube is very smooth. Although riders are not sitting, but rather leaning against one of the seat posts with their feet slipped under floor straps, inertial comensators guarantee comfort.

A special sealed environment model provides 24 hours air supply for 2 people.
