The Dromedary Water Transport is a very large wheeled transport vehicle used primarily as a water tanker on outlying periphery worlds where water is scarce. Produced by New Vandenburg Autoworks in the Taurian Concordat, the vehicle's simplistic but reliable design has not changed since it was introduced during the Age of War.
Equipment and Capabilities
The vehicle was designed with a dune buggy chassis to allow it to traverse the harshest desert with a modest amount of speed. Standard version of the Dromedary carried a 50 ton Liquid Cargo vessel able to lug around 45 kiloliters of water. Has a small 4 ton cargo space set aside for spare parts and supplies with access by rear door next to the tank's access door.
The vehicle is protected with only 4 tons of BAR 5 rated commercial grade armor. It is armed with a single Machine gun, with half ton of ammo. However, the vehicle is considered virtually defenseless against large swarms of attackers and it must rely on escorts for protection.
The Dromedary have been modified by customers to handle fuel & industrial liquids per their needs. Less known are custom modifications done to the vehicle, where a secondary tank is installed into the vehicle for transport of special liquids for potential customers.
- The Traveling Oasis - Found on Atreus Prime in Taurian Concordat, the vehicle used by its militia as supply vehicle to help them hunt down bandits that roam the desert. Aside from its main duties to re-supply water for uranium mining camps.
