Title: Vehicle fuel?
Post by: Dread on May 9, 2020, 11:15:12 PM
I was thinking about this last night and being a car guy started wondering what kind of fuel Falcon chassis vehicles, jetbikes and the like run on. I was thinking electricity rather than a fossil fuel. Has anyone read anything, I can't remember ever seeing anything, about the propulsion systems?

Thanks in advance. I've started a terrain piece I feel will work as a docking station but not sure how to explain it.

Do they have exhaust ports?  What if it was hydrogen powered?

Thought of that too. I'll bet it's some kinda fusion generator. Dunno, but guess it really doesn't matter,  hmm wait, maybe an anti-matter engine.

Psychokinetic crystals.

Everything in the Eldar pantheon runs on psychokinetic crystals, doesn't it?

"powered by anti-gravitic engines", it doesn't actually say what the fuel source is.

Burning fuels - unlikely, the compact nature of the jetbikes and the amount of energy that would be required to create the anti-grav field would be rather large. You would need a lot of hydrogen to create that much energy.. this of course assumes our laws of physics apply to 40k..

Electric- possibly, they probably solved the storage/generation issues, so this would be the most likely except...

All Eldar craft seem to have Jet engines and air intakes.. but they also need to work in space with no atmosphere... so maybe they are hybrids lol.
