Description: This is Turtle's shell. It's made from old battleship armor plate, layered over (at least the first time around) the body of a Volkswagen Beetle. Later models have included a reclining chair, refrigerator, external spotlights, a loudspeaker system, and an on board computer.

Campaign Use and Designer’s Notes: This version of the Shell has a lot of the optional systems installed. Adding an on-board computer would be an obvious choice, complete with maps of the local area and files on well-known aces (and jokers). Even more modern add-ons include a wireless modem and a GPS.
