I chose to take a desert-faring vehicle design very much based on the modern US military. Large wheels, heavy armor, tank treads, and extra armor plating adorn the vehicles as well as a generous serving of pain distributing firepower. Not all of the vehicles are meant simply for warfare, in fact, none really are. The vehicles are built for defense from the dangerous indigenous creatures that inhabit this world, the most dangerous of which serve as the main source of water for our protagonists. Because of this, there are as many 'stun' function weapons as there are lethal weapons - they don't want to shoot their main water source only to have it drain out in to the sand and evaporate, but at the same time they need to defend their water transports from other less-than-friendly factions.
