The crawler was a type of all-terrain ground vehicle used by members of the research expedition to Resurgam. Unlike most other similar machines, it did not use wheels and was a limbed vehicle, walking across the rugged terrain of Resurgam.

Crawlers were used for logistics purposes and as mobile bases during archaeological digs in the Mantell sector on Resurgam. Dan Sylveste, Sluka and others were housed in parked crawlers while working on the dig.

Notes Edit

  • The crawler is functionally similar to the concept of quadrupedal 'mecha' vehicles in other works of science fiction, or to real world experiments with (much smaller) limbed vehicles, such as the 1960s GE Walking Truck prototype.
