Abilities & Equipment
1	1)  Aluminum:  +1 BODY
	Movement Systems
2	1)  Cummins H-6 Engine:  Ground Movement +4" (10" total); OIF Bulky (-1), Limited Maneuverability 
	Only 1 turn per Turn at Combat speed; only 1 turn per Minute at Noncombat speed (-¾), Only On 
	Appropriate Terrain (-½), Difficult to Operate (-¼), Crew-Served (2 people; -¼)
	Notes:  Diesel-Electric Hybrid (2 diesel engines, 2 generators, 4 electric motors), 5,000 gallons 
	of fuel carried
7	2)  Designed To Cross 15 Foot Crevasses:  Stretching 3", Reduced Endurance (0 END; +½), 
	Persistent (+½); OIF Bulky (-1), Extra Time (5 Minutes, Only to Activate, -1), Cannot Do Damage (-½), 
	No Noncombat Stretching (-¼), No Velocity Damage (-¼)
	Notes:  Long front and rear overhangs on the body were to assist with crossing crevasses up to 15 
	feet wide. The front wheels were to be retracted so the front could be pushed across the crevasse. 
	The front wheels were then to be extended (and the rear wheels retracted) to pull the vehicle the 
	rest of the way across. This process required a complicated, 20-step procedure.
	Personnel Systems
5	1)  Standard Radios:  High Range Radio Perception (Radio Group) (12 Active Points); OIF Bulky 
	Fragile (-1 ¼), Custom Modifier (Real equipment; -¼)
1	2)  Cold Weather Kit:  Life Support  (Eating: Character only has to eat once per week; Safe in 
	Intense Cold); OIF Bulky (-1)
	Notes:  Engine coolant circulated through the entire cabin for heating. The heating system was very 
	efficient and the crew reported that they needed only light blankets when sleeping
8	3)  Powered Winch:  Stretching 4", Reduced Endurance (0 END; +½); OAF Bulky (-1 ½), Cannot Do 
	Damage (-½), Always Direct (-¼), No Noncombat Stretching (-¼)
	Other Equipment Options
5	1)  5-Passenger Beechcraft Biplane Carried Externally
	Notes:  1,000 gallons of fuel carried for scout plane

1	Vehicle Clock:  Absolute Time Sense; OIF Bulky (-1), Custom Modifier (Real Equipment; -¼)

1	Extra Climbing Gear Carried Aboard:  +1 with Climbing; OIF Bulky (-1)
1	Basic Dark Room:  +1 with KS: Photography; OIF Bulky (-1)
1	Small Galley:  +1 with KS: Cooking; OIF Bulky (-1)
1	Basic Machine Shop:  +1 with Mechanics; OIF Bulky (-1)
1	Basic First Aid Supplies:  +1 with Paramedics; OIF Bulky (-1)
2	Survival Gear Carried Aboard:  +1 with Survival (Arctic/Subarctic); OIF Bulky (-1)

Total Abilities & Equipment Cost:  37
Total Vehicle Cost:  87

Value Disadvantages
	Vehicle Statistics
	1)  Weight and size in displacement tons
	Notes:  75,000 Pounds , 55 feet long, 20 feet wide, 15 feet high
	2)  Top Speed in MPH
	Notes:  30
	3)  Range in Miles
	Notes:  5,000
	4)  Crew
	Notes:  5
	5)  Payload
	Limitations and Disadvantages
15	1)  Phys. Lim.:  High Ground Pressure (Frequently, Greatly Impairing)
	Notes:  The crew later found that the tires produced more traction when driven backwards. The 
	longest trek was 92 miles—driven completely in reverse
15	2)  Phys. Lim.:  Cannot Travel over most bridges (Frequently, Greatly Impairing)
	Notes:  Heavy weight and ground pressure for its time
15	3)  Phys. Lim.:  Electric wheel motors tended to overheat (Frequently, Greatly Impairing)
20	4)  Soc. Lim.:  High Cost to Build (Very Frequently, Major)
	Notes:  $150,000
	Innovative Design
	Notes:  The Diesel-Electric drive train allowed for smaller engines and more space for the crew, 
	due to the elimination of large mechanical drive components throughout the vehicle. This is possibly 
	the first application of a diesel-electric powertrain in a 4-wheeled vehicle of this size; this 
	design is now common in large modern mining trucks.
