The ATV NR6, also known simply as the ATV,[1] was a vehicle used for quick transportation on off-world colonies and locations manufactured by Weyland Corp.


The ATV NR6 was a two-person transport vehicle with 4-tread, track-belted wheels able to negotiate near-vertical terrain carrying small payload. With the NR6, Weyland planetary engineers are able to survey previously inaccessible areas of newly discovered proto-colonies. Vehicles could reach top speeds of 88 mph in standard atmospheric pressure and gravitational pull. Variable-friction axes for front and rear wheels provided micro-torque gear adjustments for maximum safety and mobility across any foreign surface.


The USCSS Prometheus was equipped with four ATV NR6s during its voyage to LV-223. They were presumably destroyed when the ship collided with the Juggernaut.

Behind the Scenes

The ATVs were largely scratch-buit by the production,[1] but appear to have been based on Polaris Sportsmans.[2]
