A Landship was a type of large wheeled or tracked vehicle, driven by coal or oil, which was widely used in many parts of Europe during the early Traction Era. Landships were distinguished from other vehicles in use during this time, such as land-barges and campavans, by their large size, heavy armour and armament, and slower speed. Their primary purpose was combat, although they were also used for transportation on some occasions. The Nomad Empires employed entire armadas of landships in their wars, and they were widely used during the Northern War.

Fever Crumb once travelled aboard a landship when she went into London to meet Kit Solent.

When London was rebuilt into the first traction city, hangars for landships were included in its lower levels. However, landships fell out of use after traction cities became more common.

Landships are not to be confused with sand ships, which were smaller, lighter, wind-driven vehicles in use in desert regions during the later Traction Era.
