For the most part, Daleks dwell within their individual vehicles. These vehicles carry sufficient armor to easily resist twentieth century [[Firearm|small arms]], with later models also outfitted with [[shield]] systems. They also carry an [[directed-energy weapon|energy weapon]] and a plunger-like appendage for manipulation. The plunger seems simple, but it is actually a versatile tool with surprising dexterity that can interface with computers and even organic minds, in addition to lifting objects.

Early-model Dalek vehicles ran on wheels or tracks concealed beneath the "skirt", but more recent models use a form of antigravity system to maneuver; they generally hover a few centimeters above the ground, but they can freely fly if doing so is advantageous. In addition, several variants of Dalek Vehicles exist including specialized command cambers and heavy weapons units.

While virtually impervious to small arms, older Dalek models could be destroyed by explosives or anti-armor weapons. The [[shield]]ing on newer models makes them more resilient. Similarly, older Daleks were vulnerable to attack via chemical and biological weapons, but newer Daleks appear to be sealed units that can comfortably operate in the vacuum of space. The eyestalk tends to be the most vulnerable point on any Dalek, even the newest versions, as it extends far enough from the shell to be relatively weakly protected by the Dalek's shields; even small arms (albeit advanced ones) can potentially damage the eyestalk with concentrated fire.
