Elvar Nerical in his address to the RanCorp Research and Development commision on
behalf of Alpha Wing design team was quoted as saying "On your own you can reach amazing
heights but think of how high you can go if you stand on the shoulders of others."
And with that began Alpha Wing's research project. They went through old records
looking for desing concepts which could be modernized and revitalized. Such
designs as the Naboo series war droids and mark-8 destoryers came from this.
The mark-8 rolls up into a rolling ball for main movement. It unfolds into a
one meter tall biped form. n eah arm there are two blaster rifles. They are designed
in such a way that one fires then the next and so on and by the time the first fires again
it's already finished it's recycle period and can fire again, this allows rapid
near unlimited fire. The weapons are powered by the droid's advanced powerplant
and have nearly unllimited ammo. When in a fight they project an energy sheild
of great strength. Because of the design of the shield and the power drain the droids
cannot move with the shield up. Still with their sheilds raised and their blasters
firing nearly non-stop these droids can devatastate groups of enemies. They can even
be deployed right into a battle to decimate armies.
- Two arms,
- Two legs
- Thermal and image intensification sensor array, with built in
- ATAP advanced threat assessment protocol +1D bonus to hitting moving targets
reduced multi-action penalties by 1D
- Body armor: +1D+2 physical, +1D+1 energy
- Internal blasters , arm mounted , 2 each arm (3-25/100/250 ; 6D)
-Shield projectors: shields 5D , renders droid immobile while shields are up.
Attack: They curl up into a ball and roll for primary movement, when atatcking they
unfold into a biped form with two blasters on each arm.
Shields: These shields add to the resist instead of armor while up. they
act just liek armor but shut off when the droid is at least lightly damaged
then armor is the only bonus the droid gets. The energy sheild resists
physical and energy attacks equaly.
