tank: a vehicle used by the MCP and later by the ICPs. it can b crewed by 1 to 3 programs that operate comms, the gun and as a driver. it is armed with a single cannon. in the later tron 2.0 game it is said that they have been changed to read-only, making them indistructible. it is not clear how it raises its cannon upwards like it does in the film.
recogniser: a multi purpose 'flying' vehicle. it is used to keep an eye on the game grids, defend the network and it uses its speed as a scout to unkown sectors. its legs can smash foes but later on a shoulder mounted gun is present. althought one operator is enough to fly it most recos have 4 operators: 1 driver, 1 radar/radio operator and a commander. in tron 2.0 they have less heroic jobs as data transporters.
solar sailor: a long range transport to carry up to 20 programs and 2 operators to different sectors. it is guided along a laser.
