  • A small hovercar (4 crew and 200kg cargo capacity)

These rare vehicles are highly prized by settlements possessing the technical know-how and water required to keep them running. An ingenious regenerative steam turbine system keeps water loss very low (30-100 liters per hours of operation). As a bonus, water recycled through the steam turbines is cleaned or poisons and radioactive contamination, purifying 30-100 liters per hour of operation depending on turbine size. Example: for a 6-crew-size hovercar, 4 hours of operation consumes 200 liters of water and fully purifies the remaining 300 liters.
