Landcraft

From Buck Wiki, the ultimate Buck Rogers reference
Jump to: navigation, search

Various landcraft[1] are used by various organizations in the 25th century.

Earth Directorate

Tank Type

Earth Directorate landcraft are outfitted with different load-outs based on mission profile. Col. Wilma Deering uses a landcraft outfitted with a pulsar cannon turret at the craft's top to dispatch mutants attacking William "Buck" Rogers, Twiki and Dr. Theopolis during Rogers' unauthorized explorations of Anarchia (BR25Film, "Awakening").

Later, an unarmed transport variant ferries Rogers, Deering, Twiki, Theopolis, Dr. Elias Huer and a few other officers to the landing of a sphere dispatched by the Pendarans outside the city in an rocky, barren area of Anarchia[2] (BR25: "Flight of the War Witch").

Open Cab Type

Earth Defense Directorate officers using landcraft as cover while ambushing Draconians (BR25: "Escape from Wedded Bliss").

An open cab type landcraft is also used by Defense Directorate personnel for the transport of troops, and two such crafts were used in the pursuit of Rogers (BR25: "Escape from Wedded Bliss").


Draconian Empire

In pursuit of Rogers, Princess Ardala's forces are somehow able to secret a landcraft of their own, and use it to pursue Rogers who leaves the city and heads into the wilderness of Anarchia (BR25: "Escape from Wedded Bliss").

Notes

The landcrafts used by the Draconians and Earth Directorate are reuses of the landram from Battlestar Galactica, provided by Thiokol, using the "Imp" chassis and dressed with different bodies by production as needed.
