7699 MT-101 Armoured Drilling Unit is a Mars Mission set released in October 2007.


The MT-101 Armoured Drilling Unit or ADU is a Mars Mission set containing a heavily armed and armoured Astronaut drilling vehicle and an Alien speeder. The MT-101 Armoured Drilling Unit is a mining vehicle unlike any other. It includes a capture pod where a sled capable of carrying an alien minifigure or three crystals is stowed. Another feature of the Armoured Drilling Unit is the dorsal sphere launcher near the drill. It "shoots" a blue sphere with the touch of a lever. The ADU contains 635 bricks, which is only 60 more than its sister set, the Crystal Reaper.

With 2 detachable flyers to scout and protect the main unit, this special-edition mining tank is really 3 vehicles in 1. Includes a drilling arm to dig for energy crystals, a sphere-launching blaster, alien capture tubes, and 6 big wheels with working independent suspension for rough terrain! Plus an alien attack ship out to steal the crystals!]
