Parked vehicles that are static parts of lots of maps all also have these style of wheels.

* In ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' it seems that Howard Stark managed to produce at least one fully functional version of the prototype seen in ''Captain America''. Agent Coulson [[ICallItVera calls it Lola]].

to:

* A derivative appears in ''Videogame/EliteDangerous'''s first ExpansionPack, ''Horizons''. The Surface Recon Vehicle is a six-wheeled rover for exploring planets and planetoids, and has a gimballed thruster in each wheel hub. On a low-gravity world, they fire upwards to keep the rover on the ground, whereas on high-grav worlds they fire downwards to prevent the suspension from bottoming out. The thrusters can temporarily be fired for a forward boost or a jump.
