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.


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