Riding with Lackhart's Lancers

The cracking of super-heated air makes my head snap round. A flash of searing light lances across the landscape, followed by a second. In the distance, I see a body crumple.
“Down and out!” The excitable voice of Rich Lackhart bursts from the radio speaker. “Let’s keep it moving, Lancers.”
Another morning’s commute for a mid 21st Century haulage gang.

Motorway Patrol interview

It is 4am on a cold September morning. Patrol Sergeant Dave Chapman takes a deep draught of hot tea, standing at the service station in the shadow of the Severn Bridge. For the past two hours, he has driven from London at a sedate 55 mph, showing the flag and protecting his patch. Now he takes a well-earned break.
“Everyone seems to think that we have high-adrenaline lives; that the excitement never stops. We have our moments, but actually, most of what we do is just remind people that we are here; that there is a law; and that someone cares if they break it. That is often enough.”

23/9/55: Babylon is a true inspiration in these times of darkness. Under the dynamic leadership of Sir Hector McDonaugh, the company has thrived while so many others failed. Read more

20/9/55: Mayor Rod is victorious. The battle against an insidious foe has been won, and Mayor Forrester-Smythe’s aggressive policies have been vindicated. While others dithered, Mayor Rod took action. The result? Londoners are safe from a creeping infection that has decimated nations, destroyed civilisations and ripped communities in half. Read more

18/8/55: The recent attacks on everyday citizens have shocked the nation. The brutal slaying, just yards from his own doorstep, of Dominic Bruehl, a student with a glittering academic career, has deprived a young man of a brilliant future. On the same day, the gang that style themselves the Motorway Marauders have killed a working driver just weeks away from his retirement. Read more

The Austen Galleon is a family saloon rarely seen outside the security of major cities. It can carry a family of four with their luggage in some comfort, but cannot withstand a sustained firefight.
Galleon: Sedan, light chassis, heavy suspension, medium power plant with superconductors, 4 PR tyres, driver, gunner, 2 passengers, RR front, 2 linked SSs left and right, both linked to SD with explosive spikes back, link from RR to all dropped weapons. Armour: F15, B15, L15, R15, T5, U10. Accel. 5, top speed 90, HC 3. 4,450 lbs., $8,510.
Cargo capacity: 140 lbs., 1 space.


Two years ago, Stoic Autos introduced the Fuego. You loved the weapons. You loved the flames. And you loved the price.
So we went one better. We designed the Fuegito. It’s smaller, it’s just as powerful, and it’s even more cost effective.
Fuegito – a little fire goes a long way.
Fuegito: Sedan, extra-heavy chassis, heavy suspension, large power plant with platinum catalysts, 4 steelbelted PR tyres, driver, 2 FTs linked back, linked to FOJ left, improved fire extinguisher. Armour: F40, B40, L35, R35, T20, U25. Accel. 5, top speed 90, HC 3. 6,085 lbs., $12,835.
Personal equipment: 35 lbs., 2 spaces.
Fuegito RL: As Fuegito, but replace 1 FT with RL loaded with incendiary ammo F. Armour: F45, B45, L40, R40, T20, U25. 6,075 lbs., $13,995.

The eponymous Lackhart has become the flagship model of the famous Midlands company, showcasing its unique relationship with Resnick Labs. The two lasers give this vehicle a serious punch, and it has emerged victorious in many engagements. A common custom adjustment is to exchange the fire extinguisher for a laser battery as a running battle can drastically limit the Lackhart’s range.
Lackhart: Sedan, extra-heavy chassis, heavy suspension, large power plant with platinum catalysts, 4 solid tyres, driver, turreted laser smart-linked to laser front, paint discharger back, fire extinguisher, targeting computer. Sloped armour: F40, B35, L30, R30, T30, U20. Accel. 5, top speed 90, HC 3. 6,070 lbs., $29,853.
Cargo capacity: 50 lbs., 2 spaces.
Lackhart Vim: Exchange fire extinguisher for laser battery and five points of armour, 6,065 lbs., $30,152. Cargo capacity 55 lbs., 2 spaces.


The flagship model of Lackhart’s N series, the Energizer is referred to within the company as the blockade runner. Designed by Rich Lackhart, great-grandson of the original founder, and driven by him as the lead vehicle in his courier outfit, it is a no-nonsense point vehicle in any convoy, combining the serious firepower of a pair of lasers with 750 pounds of reinforced steel ramplate. The best tactic against the Energiser is to get behind it and stay there, but the car’s superior handling means that with a half-decent driver, the Energizer is a very dangerous opponent.
If you see an Energizer in the vanguard of a midnight blue squadron, the likelihood is that Lackhart himself will be at the wheel.
Energizer: Streamlined sedan, extra-heavy chassis, heavy suspension, large power plant with superconductors, 4 solid tyres, driver, 2 lasers linked front, ABS, airdam, bumper trigger, computer navigator, HD brakes, HD shocks, HRSWC, laser battery, LD radio, safety seat, overdrive, spoiler. Sloped armour: F50 (ramplate), B20, L35, R35, T6, U21. Accel 5, top speed 100 (120 with overdrive), HC 3. 6,094 lbs., $36,972.
Personal equipment: 26 lbs., 1 space
Energizer Basic: Remove ABS, computer navigator, HD brakes, HD shocks, HRSWC, LD radio, safety seat. 6,049 lbs., $29,872.
Personal equipment: 71 lbs., 1 space.


The Sedoa harks back to a more peaceful age, where most cars were unarmed, and design and styling were the hallmarks of a prestigious vehicle. Not that this convertible is incapable of defending itself. Baden has squeezed in a sports power plant, allowing the Sedoa driver to flee, or turn to face his foe behind the safety of his 200lb ramplate.
This is a car for those who want to impress, no matter the cost.
Sedoa: Streamlined sedan, extra-heavy chassis, heavy suspension, sports power plant with platinum catalysts, 4 steelbelted radial solid tyres, driver, passenger, ABS, active suspension, airdam, convertible hardtop, HD brakes, HD shocks, overdrive, spoiler. Sloped armour: F45 (ramplate), B40, L35, R35, T10, U20, 4 10-point wheelguards, 4 10-point wheelhubs. Accel. 10, top speed 140 (160 with overdrive), HC 4. 6,078 lbs., $36,100.
Personal equipment: 42.5 lbs., 2 spaces.
