Description

Tired of flimsy, slow, exploration vehicles? This Rover is built for fast surface explorations of nearly any celestial body. This craft is pure stock.
Drive safe!

Main characteristics:
* Mass: 37.2T, including 26T of fuel
* 4000 m/s of dV
* Max surface speed: 95m/s (340 kph or 210 mph)
* Max ‘kinda safe’ surface speed: ~40-50m/s (180 kph or 110 mph)
* Equipped with bits of armor to protect the vehicle from collisions.
* VTOL. Yup, why not?
* Includes all stock science experiments, an antenna, ladders, …
* Can be manned or unmanned

Warning: do not attempt this if the craft is too heavy!

Or at least do it while driving a bit slower…


The fun starts when the vehicle is around 20-25T (~2000 m/s of dV left)

With the VTOL engine (and a bit of piloting skills), the Armadillo can cruise bounce on the surface of planets at insane speeds, on nearly any surface.

Zero. Fucks. Given.
