ATBM-4 "Atomic Mole"
Milieu: Stellar Horizons [link]
Another piece for the Stellar Horizons RPG's Vehicle Guide, and the weirdest one from the ground vehicle section.
The image was to the writer's specs and features the vehicle seen in a underground crosssection.
The ATBM-4( Atomic Tunnel Boring Machine) was based on real world studies and experiments back in the 1970s and 1980s...and has been adapted for use in this SF role-playing game. The front of the vehicle features a hyperfrequency vibration nose cone and a rotating battery of lasers for boring into the ground. The middle section houses the powerful nuclear powerplant, and the crew rides and operates the machine from the shielded back compartment.
