Robot week - day 3 V15-46B Recon/Patrol Walker Drone
These walking gun-drones are one of several types of robot used by my NAC Marines.
The drones come equipped with a light autocannon suitable for anti-personnel work and also engaging softskin and light armoured vehicles. Their four widely spaced legs give good cross-country performance and, combined with the low-slung body, provide a fire platform that is second-to-none. The legs enable it to self-level regardless of the terrain over which it travels, and for ambush work it can lower itself to the ground to provide a very small target. As with the wheeled drones used by my OUDF forces, these walkers provide general purpose fire-support to infantry squads as well as recon/sentry/ambush duty. Their method of locomotion makes them especially well suited to providing integral fire support to infantry squads.
My Tommorrow's War stats:
Tech Level 2
Troop Quality D8
Light Autocannon: TL2, AP:4 / AT:2 (L)
Note that walker chassis will give greater mobility than wheeled/tracked (comparable to infantry).
I've been wargaming and rolplaying since I got a copy of the old D&D red box set in the mid 1980's. These days my interests mainly cover 15mm sci-fi, 28mm dungeon crawls (modified Heroquest with 3d scenery), Epic 40K in various guises, plus the occasional space battle (Full Thrust). More recently I've started adding to all of the above with 3D printing which is becoming a hobby in itself.
