|NOVA ASSAULT CARRIER |
Once the Nova Assault Carrier lands, a landing ramp quickly descends from her rear shuttle bay allowing ground troops and the deployed Light Armor Calvary units utilizing "Argo" style ATV units which are equipped with roof-mount phaser cannons making it ideal for mechanized land assault. With the Arrow in flight providing cover for the Nova Assault Carrier, the mothership becomes the center of operations supporting the ground assault with communication with orbital units, replenishment of supplies and troops for the ground assault, and beaming in and out of the Mobile Torpedo Launchers.

Different varieties of theses uniforms are shown below. Traditional uniforms include the Starfleet version for deployment within Federation borders when hiding in plain site is as effective as stealth. Appearing as traditional Starfleet personnel allow Marines to penetrate into areas as they appear to belong there in the first place. Second is the Maquis version of the Uniform with traditional branch colors for shoulder padding. When Marines are deployed on Tropical or Desert planets, they have a version to help them blend in with surroundings as well.

Anti-gravity bikes (Grav Bikes) are the modern equivalent of the Earth motorcycle. The Harley Davidson HGW-1888 "Heavy Grav Bike" is capable of carrying two persons in tandem, and a moderate amount of stowage in the rear pannier. Widely used as short-range transportation for reconnaissance, they consist of an anti-gravity generator, a micro-fusion power source, an RCS thruster system and a seat. They have no life support systems or shields. The HGW is armed with a Type III Phaser emitter and enhanced short range sensors.
While they can be used in space with the aid of an environmental suit, they are almost always encountered on a planetary surface. Grav bikes are incapable of achieving orbit, and are generally operated at heights of less than 50 meters. Although they do not have a true autopilot, they can be preset to follow a programmed set of way-points and have a basic auto-avoidance warning system. In the case of an injured or incapacitated operator, they can be slaved to another grav bike, or operated remotely from the Command Arrow Runabout.
The "Argo" style All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Assault Buggy is a very versitile land based vehicle. The Argo buggy was designed with special off-road tires and soft suspension that let it grip and turn with ease on rocky or sandy terrains. It has a tubular framework that is very flexible, yet strong. Although not recommended, the buggy can be driven at very high velocities and can withstand most bumps and impacts with little damage.
