Excavators have unearthed a cache of mothballed robots formally used in corporate controlled police states. These robots were old when locked away but techs have been able rebuild them with scavenged materials.
Their neural net was based on an uplifted dog and the units show playful, if rough housing qualities when not in combat mode. They can herd targets, display pack tactics and are protective of their territory.
An egg shaped body is supported on heavy ostrich-like legs. They bear two weapon pods for arms and have an impressive sensor suite (IR/radio/telescopic, IFF) able to detect ground/air targets 200m/500m away. The intelligence has limited communication by 90dcb speakers. Corporate security officers could access the loudspeaker by radio, projecting their own voice to address crowds. HDUPU's can also monitor radio broadcasts allowing it to eaves drop on conversations and act accordingly; Int HC to anticipate enemy's actions.
These units were discontinued for excessive aggressiveness in urban areas. Once a target is acquired, they must make a C Will HC to stop attacking, even if ordered to do so.
Top-heavy, the robots can be knocked over and have trouble negotiating stairs; B Agi HC or roll-over. It takes 3 rounds to right itself.
Right Weapon Pod:
1 20mm machine gun and pop-up missile launcher. 3 heat-seeking missiles are stowed when not in use. (double damage exploding arrows/guided missiles per TME pg 196., 5m blast rad)
Left Weapon Pod:
2 20mm machine guns (treat as chain guns with 500 rnds/gun.)
Back Mounted Mortar Launcher:
5 HE (treat as Advanced Frag Grenades, TME pg 195.)
5 Gas Rounds (normally 2 smoke and 3 tear gas per TME pg 195)
Titanium alloy armor grants an extra -15DV vs small arms fire. The unit has a thin flame retardant, teflon coating; 1/2 damage for the first 20 pts from fire and acid.
