Description

Named after the greek personification of boldness. Key bindings:
[1] Toggle bay
[2] Toggle Drills
[3] Toggle Surface Harvesting
[4] Toggle Ladder

Thrasos CEV built with 127 parts. Designed to complete the Elkano challenge and still be useful as an exploration rover. Very easy to drive and hard to flip, with a top speed of 50m/s without the jet active and 170m/s with jet assist. Navigation on water is slower with a top speed of 15m/s but still possible for extended periods of time. Comes with all scientific equipment in a storage bay at the front of the craft and a crew cabin to accommodate an additional 4 kerbals to the 2 pilots. 2 drills and an ore converter make the craft 100% self sustainable for using the jet.

Note that going over hills and dunes at high speed can cause the wheels to buckle when you reconnect with the ground.
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
