LIU Space Dozer . Keep your space routes clear of asteroids and other space debris with this futuristic bulldozer... . LIU Space Dozer - Trade Route Maintenance
Your economic prowess can be seriously challenged if you can't maintain your space routes, but the millions of random asteroids floating around don't seem to care. How can you combat such a threat? Use the Ludgonian Industrial Union's new product, the Space Dozer.
Before this product, everyone was content to blast these obstacles out of the way, but that's not the answer. Blasted asteroids just become smaller asteroids. These can still damage most ships and worst of all, they can join back together. So don't blast them, move them.
Use the Space Dozer's reinforced bucket to collect and move the obstacles from your routes. You can push them a safe distance away, or you could push it on board a freighter to be mined. You decide...
The Space Dozer sports small, poorly detailed thrusters, but they get the job done. While far from fast, the Space Dozer is very powerful.
A side view. Note the warning lights, stripes, and this uninteresting photo. Do it! Note it now!
Buy a fleet of these and position them at various points along your routes. Everyday they can scout the paths and keep them clean. Its one hell of a boring job, but it sure is important.
The cockpit was designed to be extra pleasant to counter the effects of these boring days. Note the double-wide chair and the personal phone. Its a life of luxury...if you like those kind of things.
Look Mom, I finally found one! Yeah!!!
Note: If massive asteroids appear in your routes, you might want to try that blasting technique first. Then scoop up the remains.
