Maglev technology allows the Javelin to hover along the ground and easily traverse difficult terrain.

An open rumble seat allows for one additional passenger, and while it is not innately equipped with weaponry, it has access to a variety of defensive and utility options.

This vehicle is in a prototype state, and will see significant iteration as time passes.
