KT-40 Kifaru
This light farming transport is used on plantations across Southern Africa.
About this creation
On the vast farms which cover much of the African continent, farmers often have difficulty traveling over muddy fields and tall dikes. For many, their only options are a huge harvester or sprayer or a fragile hover-car unsuited to the terrain. The KT-40 was invented to resolve this dilemma.



The KT-40 is built around a tiny fuselage with just enough room for a pilot and some equipment. Onto this foundation, however, are bolted two Di-900 turbines, which give the craft disproportionate torque and altitude.



Surprisingly, despite the uncivilized racket made by the motors, the KT-40 can be registered for city flight, allowing a farmer fallen on hard times to use this as his primary vehicle.



The trunk gives an owner room to carry some tools and survival gear, as well as side-arms. Shotguns, though, have to be hung outside.



This view shows the robust undercarriage and landing gear. Multiple attachment points for each motor ensure that catastrophic engine separation, a common issue with aftermarket engines, doesn't occur.



On each engine, two maintenance hatches open for easy access to the entire system. Besides making repairs easy, this also provides room for rebellious farm boys to install illicit speed-boosting devices in the KT-40. Inside each air intake is a large filter grate to keep any dirt or debris from being ingested when the craft is taking off from an unimproved landing pad.


The KT-40 Kifaru is a useful addition to the hanger of any farmer. Its rugged engineering and powerful engines are valuable in any rough terrain.
