There are fewer ground cars than contra-grav cars in 2065, but as the core rules imply, Driving applies to both. However, contra-grav cars can leave the standard near-ground routes mandated by government and when it does, Piloting skills is used.
The Computer knowledge skill covers all skill checks including hacking, programming, and Netz accessing.
Piloting applies to airplanes, helicopters, life belts, and any other flying devices. When a contra-grav car goes “off road,” Piloting skill is used.
This is the skill Psychics use to activate and control their psychic powers.
Weapons are highly restricted in both the Reich and Empire of Nippon. Without a special permit from the government or membership in the armed forces, no citizen is allowed to own a weapon.

The black market is rampant, however, with outmoded version of military weapons, however. The military is supposed to destroy old caches of weapons but illegal networks grew like vines around the trafficking of these caches.

Weapons types (From the Science Fiction Companion p 19-22) available are:
Portable Missile Launcher
Slugthrowers (most common)
