Frame Transporter-Erector (FraTE) Lorry

Postby The Hydromancer » Wed Dec 05, 2018 8:53 pm

Inspired by Zi Zy's work on vehicles and a certain Patlabor video, I present the Frame Transporter-Erector (FraTE) Lorry. Sometimes you just don't want to waste the fuel or time walking a frame from one location to the next. Neither fancy nor flashy, the FraTE Lorry gets the job done... just beware of sharp curves and Free Colonist IEDs.

As I've said on Discord, excellent take on the idea!

Seems to be fairly easy to build in real life as well.

Not only do I like the design, but it is totally relevant to the MF0 storyline universe, love it :)

I decided to try and brick the FraTE Lorry. However, because I lack certain parts, it is not a complete replicant.
Special Thanks to Hydromancer for sharing the original build design.

Very nice. It's like optimus prime meets mobile frame chub. This game is so infinitely accommodating and house rules friendly. The base rules are the among the best rule sets I've ever played, and I'm considered a Grognard.
