  • Maximum Altitude: 3,000m (depending on the local atmosphere type).

Note: in the event of a stall, the aircraft will either (a) gain enough speed during its fall to cause autorotation in its rotors and thus gain lift, or (b) impact the ground with catastrophic consequences.

Crew[edit]

The cockpit consists of a single seat protected by an open fairing. The seat is fitted with a safety harness. The pilot's position is fitted with basic mechanical controls. A console provides data such as velocity and altitude.

The vehicle has no internal storage. Incidental cargo may be carried in panniers or slung bags.

  • Cargo Storage: none.
  • Maximum load: 130 kg (including crew) before performance is impaired.

Equipment[edit]

Running lights.

Armament 10.9 MJ 10 Chamber RFT-16L Rapid Pulse Fusion Cannon, 2x 13mm Gauss Rifles

The Overrun "Cavalry" Walker originally was the Onslaught Mark 2, before designers deleted the original suits maneuver drives and CG lifters to concentrate upon ground mobility. In HI Divisions, these are deployed to screen infantry and their supporting units against enemy fire, using the high speed to avoid ambushes or damage from mines and hidden explosives. They are also used as fast reaction attack units to provide fire support and rapid response for normal units under enemy fire.

An integral 10.9 MJ Fusion Cannon is fitted into a small turret mount between the shoulders overshadowing the sensor cluster, having enough clearance for 360 degree fire. In addition to this stabilized mount, the two arms are each fitted with a 13mm Gauss Rifle to provide ambidextrous fire support around corners and obstacles. 4 centimeters of enhanced Bonded Superdense provides sufficient armor protection against all infantry antitank rockets and antipersonnel mines, and decent protection against laser weapons on civilian spacecraft.

The Schalli roller is essentially a large electric wheelchair intended to let these aquatic beings get around in a terrestial environment. They are built at the lowest practical technology level in order to make them readily available, as well as to eventually allow their construction on Schall, should the Schalli so desire. The are also designed to be inexpensive, to make them affordable to as many Schalli as possible. They are designed for use on flat surfaces. Schalli who seek better rough terrain performance use either contra-grav platforms or walkers.

The "bucket" in which the Schalli sits it partly filled with water. This provides some buoyancy for the Schalli's comfort, and also keeps his or her skin from drying out. There is a low-power mister which draws water from the bucket and sprays the Schalli's head.

The housing at the Schalli's chest level folds down as a work table, where the Schalli can use his four arms to maniplulate equipment.

The roller must be recharged every every 24 hours, usually while the Schalli sleep, and the roller is equipped with power cables and standard connectors.

The suit is capable of flight at up to 100 kph. Normal cruise speed is only about 75 kph and NOE speed is 20 kph. The TeeSuit provides its wearer with complete protection from temperatures ranging from -100°C to +100°C, and pressures of up to 5 atm.

A combat version exists, called a type D Battle Dress, with the same armor rating as human battle dress. It includes a sonar amplifier (range 1 km), integral waldos, and a chameleon surface, often set to dark grey above blending to light grey/white on the lower surface. A special snout ram can be fitted, as well as a torpedo rack.

Early versions provide fairly comfortable support for up to 12 hours. By TL–15, the cost has increased to Cr150,000 but the suit only weighs 7 kg, and provides very comfortable accommodations for up to 48 hours.

In all cases, the helmet includes a polylucent cuprothallium visor with a full heads-up display tied into an on-board computer/communication array. This system is equivalent to a hand computer in data processing power with a regional (500 km) range audio/video transceiver capability.
