TRUC

Transport Robot, Universal Carrier

A type of support robot used by the Starship Marines. The TRUC is a small general purpose non-humanoid robot designed to carry ammunition and supply pallets and to recover casualties or other items to a safe place. Optimised to operate in zero-g and hard vacuum, these are not normally used planetside.

General Description

Following considerable combat experience with the old types of Ammunition Robot and Recovery Robot, the combat units have identified a requirement for a combined type that can perform the functions of both in one machine. This have now been developed in the TRUC.
The basic robot brain units and gas-jet mobility system is fundamentally the same as the earlier types, slightly modified to reflect the new role.

Employment:

The TRUC can either carry one logistic pallet, or recover up to two casualties (but not both types of action simultaneously)
