     15 ton hovertruck was standardized even before Age of War and has changed little since then. Used by civilian and military organizations alike, hovertrucks have been popular for their effectiveness on open and wet areas without roads and bridges. Star League era saw advanced versions of this venerable vehicle with more weight efficient chassis and engines, but those weren't cheap enough to ever replace the original model. Destruction of Succession Wars and degeneration of technology led to general increase of vehicle's market price, which turned potential users to more cost efficient wheeled trucks.

     There are as many variants as any other truck of similar weight. Most common variant adds Lift Hoist or two, which enables vehicle act as PLS truck. Militaries make use of heavier and more durable armour to protect the vehicle from weapons fire. Passenger and medical variations are known to exist, though in far lesser numbers than vehicles designed particularly for those purposes. Most radical variations make use of weapons, not so uncommon among guerrilla fighters and terrorists.

You know what they say, don't you? About how us MechWarriors are the modern knights errant, how warfare has become civilized now that we have to abide by conventions and rules of war. Don't believe it.
