The ALT Pod was a scouting vehicle used by the UFE as a scouting vehicle. It's main functions were observation and basic defense of interplanetary human colonies. Many ALTs were modified by the habitants of the colonies to suit the specific needs not covered by the manufacturer. Today we will be looking at the Stock model ALT Pod.
About this creation
We will start with the cockpit. The top is heavily armored, as is the bottom. This is to withstand mines/extreme weather when needed.
All ALTs came with a spotlight, mounted on the starboard side of the vehicle unless specified by the customer to be mounted otherwise. The light can move away from the vehicle to turn to the rear.
A full starboard side view of the ALT. Here you can see that the vulnerable track drive motors are covered by extra plating on the sides. The main rear wheel drive is also heavily protected by layers of reinforced steel armor.
The rear reflecting panel. Used mostly to alert city-dwelling pedestrians to its existence when used in urban night missions.
The port-rear corner. The large canister on the side stores rations and extra fuel for longer missions.
Back to the cockpit. The vehicle could theoretically be driven by a single driver, however it is advised that there be an extra technician and a gunner to man the machine gun mounted on top of the vehicle.
Inside the cockpit we have the complex controls. The main steering wheel, gearstick, speedometer, basic communications, and the spotlight controls. To drive the ALT Pod you must be very dexterous and fast with your fingers.
The top plate.
A bird's-eye view of the top defense station. It can hold a maximum of three soldiers. There is an open toolbox that came as an extra is you bought the extra chrome decoration package. There is also a light turret placement (minigun not included) and access to the rations and fuel.
Now we move on to the rear engineering/communications station. This area is usually operated by the engineer/copilot. It has access to the advanced radio controls and the status of all three drive engines.
