This was the first King Industrial craft sold in the city. It uses old gas-scramjet engines so fuel economy suffers, however it is also very cheap for hauling large amounts of fluid. Three refilling nozzles on either side of the tank, plus one in the back. Stability fins are located on both the top and along the sides to help keep it in place while under way, and Liquibrium Fluid Racks run down the sides to shift weight around in the event of an un-balancing.

The 2001 model had a much simpler design than its predecessor. The fins, due to their cutting the legs off of pedestrians and forcing other drivers onto the sidewalk, were scrapped for internal Liquibrium systems. MAD Scramjets PowerHauler energy drives replaced the outdated 2000N Gas Scramjets, providing a large boost to efficiency, range, and top speed. The body was also lightened with the removal of the obscenely large stability fins.

Model year 2003 brought sweeping changes to the TankerKing. The body was completely redesigned with a sleeker, more aerodynamic, and lighter chassis. It was also articulated, with the front part towing the tank part behind it. This allows for much greater turning ability than with a rigid design, and also makes the hauler portion recoverable in the event of an accident. The tank was redesigned with a larger-capacity round design to hold more liquid, featuring a single refilling nozzle on the rear. The MSJ Mover Mk. IV engines are much more efficient than the PowerHaulers they replaced, allowing this craft to acheive very long-range trips with minimal recharging/replacing of cells. Computerization also affected the 2003 model, with intelligent monitoring systems in place to ensure the safety and security of the cargo, as well as the craft as a whole.
