The Hover Cargo Truck was a transport vehicle used by the Earth Federation Forces during the One Year War in UC 0079. In place of tires on axles, the vehicle was propelled by four hover engine pods, similar to the ones used by the M353A4 Bloodhound. The Hover Cargo Truck had a flatbed for cargo to be strapped down on. It was lightly armed with a 12.7mm machine gun. Hover Cargo Trucks were used on multiple battlefields, including in Southeast Asia with the Kojima Battalion. The Hover Cargo Truck was also used by Earth-based Zeon units near the end of the war.
