Strip NorthGoods/Services: The following standard vehicles are available on STAR FRONTIERS worlds.

Ground Car:  A ground car is a wheeled vehicle similar to cars in use today, except it runs on a parabattery instead of gasoline.  Because ground cars run in contact with the ground, they are very maneuverable.  A ground vehicle can cross almost any type of terrain if it has enough ground clearance.  However, they are not as fast as hover vehicles on level ground or roads.

Ground Transport:  Ground transports are heavy, wheeled trucks.  They can have open or enclosed cargo areas.

Ground Cycle:  Ground cycles are similar to today's motorcycles.  They are fast and very maneuverable.

Hover Car:  A hovercar or "skimmer" is a car that floats on a cushion of air 30 centimeters above the ground.  A pair of turbo fans propel it through the air.  In general, hover vehicles are faster than ground vehicles, but are less maneuverable and are limited to traveling on fairly level surfaces or calm water.

Hover Transport:  A hover transport is a heavy truck version of a skimmer.

Hovercycle:  Hovercycles are two-man hover vehicles similar to motorcycles. They are easier to ride and control than a ground cycle, but are not as maneuverable at high speeds.

Explorer:  Explorers are heavy, four-wheeled vans built for traveling and exploring in rugged areas.  They are very maneuverable and reliable.  Each wheel has its own motor, and the extra-wide tires make it very stable.  Explorers are air-tight and have a retractable rudder so they can cross open water, but they can be capsized by high waves.

Parabatteries:  All of the vehicles described above, except the glijet, are powered by parabatteries.  Parabatteries range in size from fist-sized to 1 cubic meter.  The following four types are used in vehicles:

 Type 1 ( 600 Cr):groundcycles and hovercycles
 Type 2 (1,200 Cr):groundcars and hovercars
 Type 3 (2,300 Cr):trucks, hovertrucks and explorers
 Type 4 (4,500 Cr):aircars and jetcopters

Range.  All vehicles listed above can travel 1,000 km on a new parabattery before it is out of energy and must be recharged. A glijet does not use a parabattery; its range varies with fuel use, altitude and air currents.
