Hiab Mass Transport
An AEGAKS Transport designed to support a variety of frames.
About this creation
The Hiab-MT was designed to be the largest AEGAKS transport possible. The final design incorporates a rigid box chassis with independent drive systems mounted on each end. To facilitate flexible and smooth movement it was fitted with an four wheel steering system that allows for the Hiab-MT to make comparatively small turns. This lets it maneuver through cramped areas and navigate rubble strewn roads. To aid in the transport of goods it is equipped with a simple fixed boom with which it can remove and load equipment onto its bed. It also is equipped with many floodlights so that it may operate during night as well as during the day. All of these features are under the control of a single operator which rides in a cab on the front of the vehicle. The carrying capacity for AEGAKS is 225 tons and it can fit various biped frames with the exception of quadruped frames. (The largest frame that it can carry is roughly 33 studs tall, or 11 inches tall. Anything under that is fair game.) Like the Mobile Repair Bay it also is equipped with power cells that can be used to recharge frames during transport, however unlike the Mobile Repair Bay the AEGAKS is required to be in a horizontal position for transport. This increase in stability lets the Hiab-MT reach much higher speeds and thus reach its destination faster. In the case that handheld weapons are also being transported it is recommended for the AEGAKS to either hold them in transit, or place them in the middle of the transport. Due to the lack of armament on the stock model, transport across any distance alone is discouraged unless there are units available to provide armed escort.

The flow of the cockpit is great, and the flatbed is awesome. Excellent use of the Exo-Force decals.

Quoting Rabid Goldfish Sounds good to me. When you make the transport in LDD, you might find the file here useful: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/254422 That's the LDD L Frame I made. With little modification, it would make a suitable model for it.
Thanks

Quoting Rabid Goldfish Would this also be used to transport the older gen Gosans? L Frames wouldn't have the ability to easily lay down for transport like that, which is the reason that I made the Mobile Repair Bay a verticle rig. And they're shorter than the larger "prototype" models that have been in development. Or would this be exclusively for the M Frames and larger? ^Blub^
They seem pretty small, they could probably stand upright on the bed, but it would need chains and such to stabilize it, which is not that big of a problem. The crane might also need to be removed in such a case. I'll know more when I finish the LDD model. So . . . yeah, this could be a viable transport vehicle for L frames as long as they were properly secured. It might even be capable of transporting two L frames at a time.

Excellent work here. I love support vehicles. The whole "form follows function" aspect of them really appeals to me. Your color blocking and execution here is great, and that cockpit is just fantastic!

I LOVE IT!! Very Transport-y colors and very useful. I call the secret AEGAKS you gave as a sneak peek "Orange Sherbet" HaHa! Great Job!

Quoting Rabid Goldfish Very nicely done indeed! I'm sure the SPA would definitely seek to have more of these on hand, especially once the Trisans are completed. I assume it can fit a standard M Frame layout? And I certainly hope that you plan to showcase that little drop of orangy goodness you got there. From what I can tell, these are very nicely made. ^Blub^
Yes, anything Biped and roughly 11 inches tall can fit rather snugly. I will get around to posting that orange one as soon as I write some decent specs.
