The Atlantis Project did not have as many resources as the main Morrow Project – and could not afford different designs for their equivalent of the Scientific-One and MARS-ONE vehicles.
Therefore, they chose the “Atlantis-One” – based on a prototype design of the Science-One. However, this Command Vehicle has different “trailer” options; this choice depends on whether it is primarily intended as a scientific, paramilitary, logistics or reconstruction asset.
ALSO NOTE: this vehicle can operate with more than one trailer (up to 4, in fact)
The Atlantis-One vehicle was originally conceived as a diesel/electric hybrid; it was later converted to fusion power. In AP service, ‘trailer’ units have powered tracks and carry their own batteries (but only the tractor unit has an integral power plant). Most trailers have auxiliary drive controls which can be used when operating in reverse – or to move the trailer when it is detached for independent service.
