Vehicle – Air/Raft Variants

Category: VehicleMirco @ 15:05

Standard open top Air/Raft

TL 9, 4 tons, Cr 90,000.
A light gravitic vehicle. An air/raft can usually cruise at 100 kph (but is extremely subject to wind effects). Top speed varies depending on size and model. An air/raft can reach orbit in several hours (number of hours equal to planetary size digit in the UPP); passengers must wear vacc suits and interplanetary travel in an air/raft is not possible. Life support must be recharged daily. An air/raft can carry up to ten persons or two tons of cargo for the larger variants. The air/raft is unpressurized and usually open-topped. Presdurized enclosed variants exist.
