Auto Credit Based on Jacobdaniel's Cruiser + staggerwing

A issue with the staggerwing has been found where the skids get stuck in the ground preventing it from moving. This can be fixed by using the droods to lift one skid out of the ground at a time or use the "tpup" command

The Antarctic Snow Cruiser was a vehicle designed from 1937 to 1939 under the direction of Thomas Poulter, intended to facilitate transport in Antarctica during the United States Antarctic Service Expedition (1939–41). The Snow Cruiser was also known as "The Penguin," "Penguin 1" or "Turtle" in some published material.

    Very cool. It’s sad the real one wasn’t a succes. The soviet counterpart did a lot better.

    This is so unique, its kinda sad they abandoned it cuz its too weak and they always expected it to be cooler when its not, then they left it to be buried in the snow when they realize it
