Rugged Tread Upgrade
The Rugged Tread Upgrade replaces both your robotic arms in favor of protected full-drive steerable treads, utilizing your rear electromagnetic clamps as skids, so you have some degree of maneuverability on flat (or not so flat) terrain under gravity. Useful for if flying is considered dangerous, like in unusual situations where the native fauna is exceedingly territorial only when you're actually in midair, which is admittedly not likely to ever happen. It still could come in handy for getting around in tight spaces without worrying about how maneuverable you are.

Additional Details

  • They roll
  • They steer
  • They even swivel!
  • It's tank treads on a spaceship, what more could you want
  • Seriously
  • While on the ground, you don't do rolls for maneuverability - everything just works
  • You are also invulnerable to anti-air fire from ground turrets (only while on the ground, of course)
  • Treads are attached with adjustable hydraulic suspension; you can hit targets in the air
