Combat weight is 27.4 metric tons. Maximum speed is 105km/hr (65mph). The all-welded steel hull is a new design with protection against 30mm projectiles fired from 300m. The diesel engine is linked to a hydro-mechanical transmission. The hydro-pneumatic suspension allows the driver to adjust the ground clearance from 570mm (used for full speed across country) to only 130mm (used to crouch behind terrain while moving at low speed). The vehicle has a nuclear, chemical, and biological protection system. There are laser detectors set to trigger smoke grenade launchers if an enemy weapon targets the Stalker. Unknown "stealth characteristics" are designed into the turret and hull..--Stephen V Cole
