The Explorer Class Bobcat is small and solar electric powered but is similar in function to the earthbound brand of Bobcat used in site preparation, grading and filling, pushing and pulling. A fantastic little genpurp machine. Navigaiter Like the concept, I would rather see bobcat like attachments on a small rover, making it even more versatile... They are amazing machines. While we're at it, it should also be remotely controllable (Rather like the work I did for the Mars Society and 4Frontiers.). Paul 08:54, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
True. There will have to be two versions: the rudimentary Explorer Class Bobcat to emplace the first basic hab and then will come the heavier-duty Mission 5 (Pioneer Class??) Class which will have enriched features to emplace and bury more HabCaps and grade the full station complex.
