The Hover Cycle is an extremely mobile, high speed combat and transport vehicle developed exclusively for the Armies of the Southern Cross. The cycle's quiet engine and ability to traverse extremely rocky and rugged terrain makes it ideal for reconnaissance patrols. Its tri-hover jets make the cycle more stable than a conventional motorcycle, enabling its pilot to make sharp turns, jumps of up to 30 ft. (9 m) high, and attain speeds of up to 210 mph. At normal cruising speed the hover cycle rides on jets of air, three to four feet off the ground. During high speed chases on rugged, broken terrain, the vehicle adjusts to accommodate the environment, altering its height from three to ten feet high for short spurts. This amazing vehicle can even leap crevasses or chasms of up to 60 ft. (18 m)
It is important to note that the Hover Cycle has no mounted or built-in weapons, but the driver may carry and fire any hand held weapon. The two storage compartments mounted on the rear hover jets can hold knives, pistols, hand-held radio equipment, first-aid kit, water, nylon cord, and other items. Compartment size is 20 inches long, 12 inches wide and 17 inches deep (533.4 x 304.8 x 444.5 cm). Suggested weight allowance is 40 lbs (18 kg) each.
