Recovering Hovers
« on: 19 May 2024, 21:22:44 »
Has there ever been anything on recovering crit-to-immobility hovers? Does one simply pick it up with a bigger tread?

Might there be something about towing it with some combo of crits? :angel:

Yeah it's no different than any other vehicle. Crane it into a trailer and move on

Though the name does indicate the priority in its use.

A Tunbo flys over just about any 100 ton or less unit and flys to landing zone where it gets fixed or salvaged .

True, and w/ so many Hovers being "lights", I'd rather just have a Karnov drop down & sling load them to fly off.
