A small gauge container car for transporting raw materials.
In-game description

The BMS Railtruck (also known as a Small Container Car) is an early-game logistical small train car designed to transport large quantities of raw resources along Small Gauge Railway Tracks.

General Info

Crew

The BMS Railtruck houses a crew of one soldier:

  • Operator (Seat 1)
    • Able to deposit the car's inventory into a nearby stockpile - press LMB
    • Unable to accurately deposit their contents into a specific stockpile
    • Players can enter from left or right side of car but only exit from the side with the small platform. Special care must be taken when entering as it may not be possible to leave due to obstruction.

Interactions

  • Couple two cars together - hold Shift + E and press Couple Cars (they must be touching/close together)
  • Decouple two connected cars - requires a Wrench used in the area between the two cars
  • Can have its inventory directly submitted into a nearby stockpile by the Operator
  • Its inventory be accessed by a small train locomotive when interacting with structures/stockpiles
A small train can have up to 5 cars connected, Small Locomotive(s) included.

Storage & Transport

The BMS Railtruck cannot be stored in a Storage Depot, Seaport or Storage Ship.

It can be packaged into a small Shippable and transported by any Shipping Vehicle (Crane, Flatbed Truck, Barge, Freighter, Storage Ship, Landing Ships, Flatbed Car, or Large Crane).

Tactics

The BMS Railtruck should only be used in logistical tasks, where the transportation and collection of large quantities of items, materials, and resources are required. Additionally, these types of vehicles should be only be used in backlines and midline regions, and as far away from frontline combat.

Due to its means of transportation, it is very limited to where it can move, especially since small gauge railway tracks cannot move between hexes. It is highly recommended to keep their movements limited and in small, manageable areas.

It is an essential part of the facility gameplay loop if the facility is transporting massive quantities of raw resources, as this is the only train car that can do so. This is especially useful for most facilities, especially those that are refining Coke from Coal, or ones that use large amounts of Salvage in their processing.

It's one of the few vehicles not to appear as triangles on Map Intelligence.
