Dromedary Armored Recovery Vehicle (Military Aircraft)

The Dromedary is designed to complement the Tiger series of infantry combat vehicles, but can be used as a recovery vehicle in support of any grav vehicle equipped with lifting hook mounts, and having a gross weight of less than 200 tons. Since disabled grav vehicles cannot be towed, the practical solution to battlefield recovery of damaged vehicles is something like the Dromedary, equipped to carry off disabled vehicles as a sling load. The Dromedary is equipped with four heavy robotic arms to enable the sling to be rigged without leaving the vehicle when conditions make this necessary, and it should be noted that the one HUD provided as part of the control system is used by the vehicle recovery specialist.
