Disposable Assassin Droid

Technically assassin droids are quite illegal but both the Imperial Security
Bureau and the Ubiqtorate have been known to use assassin droids in common
practice.

Common assassin droids can be expensive to buy and maintain, especially if
the droid finds itself in a fire fight before returning if it even survives
that long. Sending these costly droids on suicide missions tends to put a
tight strain on the budget. Seeing a chance at a quick profit, Welkret
Electronics introduced their SCUD line of disposable assassion droids.

A disposable assassin droid costs thousands of credits less than your
typical assassin droid but is only designed to be used once. Once the
target's life signs cease the droid promptly self destructs, leaving no
evidence of who sent it.

There has been at least one recorded instance of a SCUD assassin droid
going to far lengths to make sure that its target did not die by putting
him in permanent stasis. With his target still alive, the SCUD was left open
to persue a career as a real assassin droid.

Huh? No idea what, who, or where the Disposable Assassin is from.

Unfortunately I'm resurrecting the DLOS stats mainly from The Wayback Machine, unfortunately it doesn't really store images, so most of the DLOS stats are now imageless. And while I recognise many of the sources of stuff (Tremors, Dune, Dilbert, etc), there are loads I don't. Mainly I'm just aiming to get everything over to the site, and sort things out a little once thats done.

Dude, that alone is worthy enough, so that all of the DLOS stuff can survive and ppl can still enjoy them. You're doing an awsome job!
SCUD the Disposable Assassin was an off-brand comic book, a black-and-white, and it was very well liked for its time, so I gather. There was once a show on Sci-Fi channel called the Antigravity Room, completely dedicated to comic info, and while it was on they did a special on SCUD and explained all about it.
It was successful enough that a videogame was made of it, I believe it was for either Sega/SNES or PS1. Its gotta be somewhere online...heck, i'll look right now...

OMG this is such a great piece of equipment to drop onto a party that thinks they have it all wrapped up and are off to the cantina for a drink. "Bob, did that parking meter just take a shot at us?" Also a moment to say many thanks for all the time spent working the old DLoS site...you are my new hero...
