Terraphant side view Terraphant is a heavily armored personnel carrier/assualt vehicle for the alien hordes. Every minutia of his contruction screams armor. His black plastic body has thick walls and structural reinforcements to provide maximum protection for his occupants. Terraphant's ears can swivel on their ball-and-socket joints to almost completely cover and sheild the pilot, who sits in a recessed area on the head. Giant black rubber tank tracks can get Terraphant across the most rugged terrain, supplemented by dual four-wheel struts in the front. The original plans for Terraphant suggested that he would be motorized, and, if you look at his trackbase module, you can almost see a battery/motor compartment.

The most popular feature on Terraphant would be his water pump trunk. At the rearm there is a removable water reservoir and a small, clear palstic bellows. Fill up the reservoir and pump away, and Terraphant will shoot the liquid of your choice at your enemies. Terraphant's "tusk" missiles do not fire, probably the result of some frivolus lawsuit, but foreign/early pictures of Terraphant show rubber tipped missiles in place of the fixed, hard plastic ones seen in the United States.

Terrapaht can hold quite a few aliens or Time Traveler prisoners in his passenger section - it just depends on how uncomfortable you want your Micronauts to be. Terraphant rounds off his military role with an easy-to-lose communications antenna that plugs into one of the holes near the passenger section.
