The Lunar Roving Vehicle (Lunar Rover)
The Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) or lunar rover was a battery-powered four-wheeled rover used
on the Moon in the last three missions of the American Apollo program (15, 16, and 17)
during 1971 and 1972. It was popularly known as the moon buggy, a play on the phrase “dune buggy”.
The LRV was transported to the Moon on the Apollo Lunar Module (LM) and, once unpacked
on the surface, could carry one or two astronauts, their equipment, and lunar samples.
The three LRVs remain on the Moon.
This Set would contain:
a Baseplate (like the Moon Surface)
and 2 Specemen
The Rover could be released from the Baseplate and is fully playable.
The Baseplate would include a small Specs-Plate with some data of the Rover.
