[TC16] Martian Heavy Transporter

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I can't miss the contest about Mars colonization :)

My first idea was to create scientific vehicle to gather interesting objects on Mars surface. I take two Xerion tires, two more.. and I've stopped when all 16 Xerion tires were placed on my table. The transmission was very simple but steering system would be very complex.

Suddenly I've remembered that I have many sport plans on this summer, and I simply have not enough time to finish this monster. Ok, let's build something smaller :)

As far as I know, the first stage of colonization is complete due to this strange machine:

Now we can find many roads, tunnels and construction places on Mars. My new model will deliver materials from spaceports to construction places and storages.

The first prototype will have 6 wheels and AWD for high performance.

Now I'm waiting for nuclear reactor for my vehicle :)

Looking forward to your entry!

Hi! Today I've tested my reactors. The performance is rather well. Of course, it will be better in lower gravity of Mars :)

After first test-drive it's time to create loading/unloading system. I suppose it will be pallet system like in Oshkosh trucks.

Very interesting, it could be even some futuristic desert vehicle (where blankets will be no problem) :thumbup:

Hi! I've finished the model just a few days before my vacation and now I'm ready to show it :)

The truck has AWD with six XL-motors, side steering, independent suspension and pallet loading system. Now we can do Mars better :))))

looks awesome! almost acts like one of those Boston dynamics automatons :thumbup:

As a competitor in the heavy transport operations, I have some work to do.
