Velocipod
« on: 14 July 2019, 12:10:25 »
I'm going to put this in the Battlearmor section because it's a weird hybrid thingy.

Basically, this is an attempt to model the Velocipods from the first Incredibles movie.
https://pixar.fandom.com/wiki/Vehicles_in_The_Incredibles_(franchise)

Technically this is classed as a small support vehicle, even though it is intended for a limited combat role. In practice though, it would be deployed like the small vehicles used by mechanized infantry. Also, weighing in at 400 kg it almost works like a highly mobile PAL suit (though it obviously isn't "worn" by the operator). Without making home rules you could even deploy 4 of them almost like a battle armor squad (by stacking two each at two different elevations).

Code: [Select]

Mass: 400 kg
Cruising Speed: 108 kph

Interesting, but I suspect the Mods will move it to "Non-Combat Vehicles" since it was made using Support Vehicle rules.

I can see so many uses for this in recon/harassment missions.

now I have a scary question can you build a faster non armed for the civilian racing market

Certainly... there's 133 kg of weapons, ammo, and armor that could be redirected to engine...
