An Extreme Surface Human Transportation Vehicle (ESHTV) is a umbrella term covering a range of vehicles used by mankind to explore and transport goods and people across hostile surfaces on (barely) inhabitable planets and other space objects. They are produced by the global military, some scientific organizations, the UNME government, a small number of private companies and the navy of both China and South Korea.

The most common model belonging to this category of vehicles is the UN Sv-a11x (United Nations Smaller-vehicle model a11). There are hundreds of thousands of these vehicles, used on a wide range of surfaces on many different planets, including New Earth and Moqa itself.
