- Unit tooltip(src)

The The Varley-Matheson 1500 Low Cruiser, also known simply as the cruiser, is a terran motorized vehicle. It was in usage by 2504 in planets across the Koprulu Sector.

Game Unit[]

Cruiser paint jobs

The cruiser appears in several missions across StarCraft II in terran settlements, both as a selectable unit and as a doodad. They first appear on Mar Sara during the mission "Zero Hour."[1] The vehicle uses a modified hellion with, among other changes, a rollcage over the cockpit instead of a windshield, no flame turret on the top, and only two wheels.

Development[]

The color schemes of the cruiser were derived from Bumblebee, Optimus Prime and The General Lee. Their drivers were the same model as missile turret operators.[2]

The name of the cruiser manufacturer, Varley-Matheson, is likely a reference to the real-life Harley-Davidson motorcycle brand.
