DESCRIPTION:
   A landram is a tracked vehicle used for ground operations (Saga of a Star World), typically shuttled to a planet via a shuttle (The Gun on ice Planet Zero, Part I). It is capable of holding crew and cargo, and is equipped with a top mounted turret weapon. A landram was used for the initial scouting of Carillon. They were later used to evacuate civilians and warriors from the "pleasure resort" on the planet (Saga of a Star World).
   A landram is deployed to the surface of Kobol (Lost Planet of the Gods, Part II).
   A version of the landram modified for use in frigid climates is the snowram (The Gun on Ize Planet Zero, part I).
   Another modified version, this time without the cabin and open to the air, and presumably without Colonial markings, appears in "The Magnificent Warriors". It is stolen by agents of the Sheriff in Serenity.

RE-IMAGINED SERIES LANDRAM:
   A landram is among the Original Series vehicles in the exhibition in Galactica's starboard hangar bay in the Miniseries. Included in the display are an original Viper, shuttle and Cylon Raider.
   A landram also appears at the beginning of the episode "Scar", aiding the Majahual in mining activities on an asteroid. Another one is hit by a crash-landing Raptor in Galactica's landing bay (Escape Velocity).

? are these vehicle capable of operation in airless moons? If so then they could operate underwater. So are they?

Hellstormer1: "Hi there. I wrote up the stats a while back, and based them on what I watched in the original series. They never showed the Landram in any such environment, but then the show's budget was limited. Given the advanced nature of Colonial tech, the need to battle Cylons in any environment (because they're machines), I'd say yes. It'd be kind of like military APC vehicles of today: they have enclosed controlled environments for air and temperature, and in some cases are even amphibious to an extent. The Landram could probably even be easily adaptable for mission-specific roles, adding gear, swapping weapons load-out, etc. You might even be able to add some kind of magnetic coupler device to make it attach to the outer hull of a capital starship!

"Ultimately, it all depends on the imagination of the GM and players, so do whatever you like to fit your game and ideas."

They could be adapted to mission specific or planet specific. I see a dome like the the dome turrets on the Y-Wing. The question is how many passenger can it carry?
