Designer Notes
The Badger is typical of Armored Personnel Carriers used by the armies of the Confederated Northern City States. It was first introduced in the CNCS in TN 1799 as a replacement to the Mongoose line, which had become too obsolete on the battlefield to be reliable. Its sturdy eight-wheeled design can transport up to twenty fully equipped troopers to battle through almost any terrain. The Badger is powered by four axial electric engines connected to banks of superconducting batteries. A front-mounted ceramic IC engine constantly recharges them and can also be used for extra power. This gives the Badger greater autonomy, allowing it to travel through the Badlands desert without having to worry about being jammed in the sand or having no heated shelter during the night. The driver and passenger sections have been specially reinforced to withstand greater damage and to protect its crew. This has had a positive impact on morale, and soldiers who have to spend any amount of time in Badgers are grateful for the extra protection.
