Vehicles can be driven on electricity or diesel engine or both. All equipment is detachable and can be used with the transporter, hovercraft and crew vehicle. All of the vehicles are amphibious so that they can save people from flooded areas.

The transporter has a trunk for a small hovercraft and snowmobile or for specialized necessary equipment and a crane manipulator.
