Zorya 'Crowd Control Vehicle'
« on: 25 May 2019, 03:28:37 »
Although Clan Smoke Jaguar looks down on vehicles as being a weapon unworthy of a warrior, even they realised that Mechs couldn't be everywhere during Operation REVIVAL. With resistance movements and uprisings to deal with from the 'Lower Caste' Draconis Combine civilians the Jaguars now controlled and sought to bring to heel, a 'pacification' version of the Zorya was produced.
Best described as a 'war crime on tracks', the Zorya CCV is designed to do one thing and one thing only. Annihilate lightly armoured targets on foot. With a quartet of machine guns which can be loaded with rubber bullets if needed, and a pair of utterly devastating heavy flame throwers, the Zorya CCV can do horrific things to infantry forces, or rioting civilians. A trio of A-Pods are also mounted which are triggered if the vehicle is rushed by a crowd and these act as a final layer of protection against attack. An active probe also lets the CCV hunt for targets regardless of terrain of cover.
Some Zorya CCV's have loaded up their flamers with water or foam to act as anti-riot vehicles, but the huge pressure of the heavy flamer even when firing a jet of water can cause significant injury.

Smoke Jaguar's know what rubber bullets are?
"For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast, And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill, And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"

PUTS ON SCIENTIST CASTE CAP: I too was fascinated by tales of this object.  However thorough research has indicated it's of a purely mythical or apocryphal nature.
One does not just walk into Detroit

She ignored the dragon, and Freddy Mercury who arrived to battle it with the Power of Rock.
