240 engined Drones please.
« on: 04 September 2023, 01:06:47 »
that's your criteria; they need a 240 engine, armor, and a battlefield role, but with a drone control system.

Why a 240? because the 330 million ton space station with 8 million tons of artificial intelligence wants to use the same engine for 'mechs, fighters, and ground vehicles.

Kolossus, you see, has decided to interact with The Creators on a level they seem to understand...

Is there any non-canon drone operating system on there? Else we have to use exactly same thing on TO? It is too heavy so I wonder that how much I can add.

'Yes'

actually, sidebar here, but when you think about it, XL engines are MORE viable in conventional vees (not counting pricetag) than they are in 'mechs  thanks to how crit locations are done.  If you have the budget there's really no reason NOT to use them.  (Likewise, surprisingly, with ASF.)

"A" role, huh? Tillamook Innovations considers having only one role to be rookie numbers.

40 ton base design, fourteen tons of pod space, all of which can fit in the turret if need be. Present configurations include a medium tank, a fire support unit, a close support unit, an infantry fighting vehicle, command vehicle, bridge layer, recovery vehicle, and medical response vehicle.

Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

that's your criteria; they need a 240 engine, armor, and a battlefield role, but with a drone control system.

Why a 240? because the 330 million ton space station with 8 million tons of artificial intelligence wants to use the same engine for 'mechs, fighters, and ground vehicles.

Kolossus, you see, has decided to interact with The Creators on a level they seem to understand...

Well, only drone control, on TO, right? Else any other choice are allowed such as robotic controls?

robotic control is allowed.  The idea is simply that the vehicle be unmanned, has usful capabilities, and run a 240 engine.

It would be the skirmishers. I think that it is fine for a line tank, although it is squish.

edit: I found that it have CASE which it never uses. I swap it for a mine dispenser. Hope that the hordes of it may lay some mines before the battle.

No actual combat role for this, for this is expected to be a tractor vehicle to have at least one 40 tons trailer or more. You can use it to deploy the drone controlled trailers.

I wonder how to rule this but I am imagine that the vehicle's own AI will control the trailers by using its own Drone Carrier Control System. So it is not only the trailer, but also the command vehicle of those drones.

An alternative for this, this is still no battlefield role for it lacks a weapon but it's more like striker - its intended role is to disguise it as the standard caterpillar and also pulls the trailors, and charge the enemy and initiate self destruct sequence when the enemy is close and aim for the unarmed caterpillars.

I think the armor needs some tweaking... ideally, armor is one point over a 5-point break.

It's not the aerospace unit(none of these should be on this subforum - you know this section is about combat vehicle, right?) and does not suffered by damage threshold so I don't think that it needs to have 1 point over than the multiple of ten. I do remember that there is an optional rule for that against CVs but I don't care for this for I don't think that it is worth considering to use.

Also armored version is aim for effectively same vehicle, but only add modular armor in exchange for some equipments.

And I was forgot to remove CASE after I want it to have pure energy weapon.

You want one point over multiples of five because damage tends to come in multiples of five - and having an extra point left over means you're not breached to atmosphere or exposing internal structure.  It has nothing to do with Aerospace and thresholding.

Oh, that makes sense. Still I wonder that a robotic/drone unit will care for this, though.

Gauss Rifle Ammo (16)             Body        2.0     

(I edited and rearranged them to get the non-fixed items together)

The Prime and OA designs have 17 tons in the Turret while the OB has 18 tons in the Turret.  I'd be tempted to remove one of the OB's ER Medium Lasers and add another ton of Gauss or AMS ammo into the Body.  The OB should be parking itself at long range and unleashing Tungsten hell on whichever opponent is easiest to hit.

This makes changing from one Rhodes variant to another a matter of changing the Turret, loading ammo into the body, and for the Prime design adding two heat sinks.

not yet, so the thing is still running.  (Unlike the similar threads on battlearmor and battlemechs, both of which have had examples appearing either on screen or by mention.)
