A small escort designed to scout minerals and locations on desert planets.
About this creation
LIU Desert Rat
The Ludgonian Industrial Union, in association with the Mine Tech Corporation®, presents the LIU Desert Rat. This small escort was designed to aid the MTC® in its search for mineral deposits in the disputed territories of the Kaloh Empire.
The Mine Tech Corporation® came to the LIU in desperate need of a scout escort to assist its disputed mining on the desert planet of Kaloh. The LIU answered with the LIU Desert Rat.
The small two seater was not designed to confront large armored enemies head on. Instead, its open design and quick speed give it the ability to outrun such an adversary. The scouts are on location to warn the miners of an advancing attack.
The LIU Desert Rat is armed with two cannon just in case it is cornered. These two guns are strong enough to get rid of infantry and lightly armored aircraft.
Huge, oversized, and overpowerful engines give the Desert Rat more than enough speed...in fact, maybe a dangerous amount of speed for its size. It allows the Mine Tech Corporation® to outrun any of Kaloh's military vehicles.
The top of the Desert Rat can adjust to provide shade or can lift off to allow the pilots to escape. Also, advanced radars and detectors give the Desert Rat the ability to detect enemy units.
Two pilots from the Mine Tech Corporation® pose outside their company's new Desert Rat.
Note: The LIU Desert Rat was designed for the unique problem the Mine Tech Corporation® was facing. However, the LIU has temporarily listed this product just in case any other empires are in need of a high speed scout. You know....a few cans of spray paint could transform the Desert Rat into a jungle rat or an artic rat or a plains rat or ...well, you get the point. As pointed out by the FTO, the Desert Rat has no windscreen. This is because there are not sandstorms in the area the Mine Tech Corporation® is mining. However, if this is a problem for your empire, the LIU will install a windscreen for a small fee...
my only problem is the lack of a windshield. in a freak sandstorm (seeing as it is the DESERT rat), that wouldn't be prefferable by the crew, otherwise, i like the unique shape. More practical than asthetic!
