Built at the Mazagon Shipyards near Bombay, the Ratha-Class Landship was a key vehicle for the the Second Indian Expeditionary Force during the Second Hive War.
The huge 730- ton craft carries 48 infantry, two 10-pounder portable artillery pieces, eight tankettes, and four destroyer tanks. Mounted weaponry consists of one 6-inch/25.5 Mk III gun in a top-mounted turret, three 37mm guns in sponsons, and 12 Maxim guns.

The 1893 British Empire Tankette pushed the bounds on a number of technologies. To reduce weight, it used a novel aluminum alloy armor. It also used a very advanced high-speed quad-expansion condensing steam engine.
Though a technical marvel, the Tankette’s high cost proved to be prohibitive. It served in the Second Hive War and several tankettes have been shipped to the British Garrison of the International City on Venus. They played an important role in the Construction Riots and the Upstream Deluge.

No other time period is defined by its vehicles like the Victorian Era. From the early motor cars to the continent-wrapping locomotives, this was when humanity broke from muscle power and conquered the planet with steam and steel! This book includes:
- Dozens of all-new ground vehicles for the Hive, Queen, and Country setting or any other Victorian Sci-Fi environment!
- History of the Battle of Panama – the greatest battle between Humanity and the Hive – and other conflicts!
- Statistics for the Hive, Queen, and Country vehicle combat system!
“Ground Vehicles” will be out later this year, available as a print book and PDF. The vehicles have been designed for use in HQC, but are easily applied to other settings. Great care has been taken to ensure consistent technical designs – perfect for the hard sci-fi genre!
