Default Cost of an ATV

In going through the various Traveller editions and books, I have come across 3 prices for an ATV.

In the 1977 rules, an ATV costs 3 Million Credits, which does seem a bit high, but they also have the Air Raft at 6 Million Credits, again seems a bit high, and personal Grav Belts at 1 Million Credits, which actually seems about right.

In the 1981 Rules revisions, the ATV now costs 30,000 Credits, which seems a bit low, the Air Raft at 800,000 Credits, which seems about right, and the Grav Belt at 100,000 Credits, which does seem a bit low.

Then, in the JTAS No. 5 article, "Speculation without a Starship" by Loren Wiseman, the ATV is costing 300,000 Credits, which does seem to be about right.

For those interested, the US operated both a tracked and a wheeled ATV during World War 2. The tracked version was the amphibious Landing Vehicle, Track, while the wheeled version was the DUKW amphibious 6-wheel drive truck.

I march to my own set of bagpipes. Caution: This individual thinks that studying logistics is FUN.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
