The city of Grace is protected from the various creatures of the scalded lowlands by a wide array of defensive and offensive weaponry. The Shunt is a class of compact high-speed sportster (or in this case, armored escort) that features steerable front wheels and a hovering tail. A system of boost nodes arrayed on the tail allow the craft to make rapid lateral movements in order to avoid obstacles or incoming fire. This system can be used to keep the vehicle's guns on-target as the craft crab-walks in a drifting arc around its prey.
The elite of the city of Grace own elaborate dueling shunts--vehicles designed both for the gentlemanly settling of disputes and for sheer display of wealth-- and parade them nightly in the glamorous streets of the promenade district. These vehicles rarely, if ever, see combat, but their heritage is clearly visible in the battle-ready workhorses of the city.
///did this one a while back, have been meaning to get back to doing concepts for this world but have not found the time. Hopefully soon! It's from the same world as spex84.deviantart.com/art/City…
*logotype is placeholder. I'm still trying to come up with something more finished that has the look and style to suit the world.
