The Mao-Heng Charioteer was created by the Capellan Confederation as a law enforcement patrol vehicle for the Palace Guard on Sian. The vehicle is a sleek, wheeled, internal combustion engine powered ground car with the maximum speed of 60 kilometers per hour. It is considered to be an inferior design due to its slow speed and sluggish handling.
The elected Chancellor Sandol Quinn set the requirement for a new patrol vehicle for the exclusive use of the Palace Guard in 2797. These requirements were believed to have been influenced by wealthy friends of the Chancellor.
The Mao-Heng was selected out of a group of promising vehicles and put into production. Over 2000 production models were manufactured in a run that lasted until 2801. When Ilsa Liao came to power she put a stop to production.
The vehicle remained in service on the streets of Sian for several years, where it performed well enough for the Capellan Hussars. The last of vehicles, the infamous Patrol 13, was decommissioned in 2834. The vehicle was purchased by Duke Jian Kao, which he added to his private collection of vehicles.
Equipment and Capabilities
