1st question: (RESOLVED)
2nd question: Hoverscout,a vehicle that's not producted from repulsorlift technology, has incredible restrictions to terrain movement.
It's descripted as:
“ More importantly, it also takes a lot less time to train somebody in the operation of these hover vehicles and they can function within certain environments where repulsorlift vehicles can not. On these craggy surfaces, the Hoverscout is the ideal replacement. ”
Question is: why such restrictions? IRL hovers are able to travel through swamps,water and glacier with ease..
