  • It conveys its passengers or cargo over a planetary surface.
  • It is a type of vehicle.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Sled[edit]

Sleds are vehicles that slide across the ground surface. Most are Primitive Craft towed by Dray Beasts but on Iceworlds, these develop into various powered forms.

Wheeled Vehicle[edit]

These Vehicles use wheels. Initial designs used no suspension and solid rims. As technology progressed, suspension was introduced and pneumatic tyres appeared. This enabled a faster and better ride.

Tracked Vehicle[edit]

These Vehicles use tracks. Initial designs used no suspension. As technology progressed, suspension was introduced. This enabled a faster and better ride. Tracks also gave a great advantage in cross-country performance over wheels at many technology levels, especially if the load to be moved was relatively heavy.

Legged Vehicle[edit]

The complexities of the joints and control systems needed for Leg systems meant that these types of vehicles are generally delivered at a higher technology level that the wheeled and tracked options for the same performance. However, they have specialist uses and their performance is uncleared jungle terrain is excellent (by comparison to wheels and tracks)

Rail Vehicle[edit]

Rail vehicles are specialist equipment that uses pre-laid track to move over. These vary from wheeled trains to mag-lev technologies. These are especially used in zero-G Asteroid Belt habitations and places where there are deep underground habitations. They also appear as Lifts (Elevators) in tall buildings and stations.

Not Ground Vehicles[edit]

Hovercraft and Gravcraft are types of Aircraft
