Pizarro CKS concept




Pizarro CKS info card:
AOM classification: Combat Droid (CBD)
Surface Material: Vonoran
Operating system: GSH-DST S.1.0
Engine type: Energy Harnessing Reactor (EHR)
Manufacturer:Institute for Intra-Galactic Affairs

Inspiration:
More than cosmetic considerations, the Spanish conquistadors and their mode of operation were the major influence for the CKS model. The three-letter suffix CKS, common among Age of Machines droids, is derived from “Charles, King of Spain,” who provided logistical support for the conquistadors.

Basic info:
Pizarro CKS is a combat droid for advanced technological warfare. It is durable and exceptionally agile, and enemies it faces cannot predict its next moves. It has the ability to read enemy maneuvers, jam communications and adjust tactics almost instantly to suit the battlefield. CKS uses so-called disrupt-and-destroy advanced military strategies and is able to execute more than a thousand unique tactics. Like all war droids of the AOM, CKS also possesses the ability to fly.

Surface:
CKS is made of vonoran, an alloy of vonnox (vx) and randan (rd). The two metals are native to the planet Beta 67A. Vonoran is known for its resiliency and its dark gray color.



Operating system:
CKS operates using the sophisticated combat artificial intelligence GSH-DST S.1.0. GSH is derived from last name of IIA founder Garash, DST stands for “Dust Storm” and S stands for “series.” Dust storm AI models are highly disruptive and possess the ability to jam and overtake enemy communications, rendering enemy units confused and helpless. Dust storm AI uses a reformatted version of the floating hierarchy pioneered by rival industry Weiss-Pickerton, called the PDM Hierarchy. PDM stands for “preferential decision maker” and transfers the decision-making process to the machine in the best strategic position on the battlefield. (More about floating hierarchy read in post about Mamluk SAD.)

Under the hood:
Below the dense layers of vonoran is the extremely powerful and versatile energy-harnessing reactor (EHR). The EHR, considered the top-of-class engine system, converts virtually any energy source in its surroundings into fuel for the CKS. Because surroundings usually emit more than one source of energy, the basic EHR converts the strongest source available to power the CKS model. The EHR has the ability to seamlessly transition between energy sources, providing an uninterrupted flow of power to the machine.



Weapon system:
Designed to be a weapon itself, the CKS features three main firing outputs. These are diagonal stripes on the helmet, a chest outlet and multiple minor outlets on the palms. Due to the potency of its EHR, the CKS has the ability to fire a variety of destructive forces (plasma rays, heat waves, etc.), but it can only fire one type at a time. The decision of which type to use is based on the immediate circumstances and is determined by the advanced analytics manager coded inside the CKS.

Combus 3X1 concept


Combus 3X1 info card:
AOM classification: Special force droid (SFD)
Surface Material: SPC-X 300
Operating system: GNB-SCR C.2.B
Engine type: Reconstructive Synergy System - Tsunami (RSS-T)
Manufacturer: General Nuts and Bolts

Inspiration:
Internal combustion engines, car batteries and early military armored vehicles were the main inspirations for this special-force droid. His suffix is a random combination of numbers and letters.

Basic info:
The 3X1 is a versatile, heavily armored special-force droid designed to accomplish the most difficult tasks. Along with search-and-destroy missions, this droid is often used to break the backbone of the defense during open-field battles. It rates at the top of its class in brute force, armor strength and firepower. It is able to track and locate organic and mechanical forms as small as dust particles. Within its specialized operating system, 3X1 holds thousands of unique maneuvers and strategies to execute missions to the best of its abilities.


The surface:
The infamous alloy SPC-X 300, manufactured by General Nuts and Bolts, is used to make 3X1 models. SPC (Superior Protective Compound) is a complex of different metals originating on Etre-1 and found during the Metal Revolution. Its specifications, as well as the process of obtaining and developing it, remain top secret.

Operating system:
The second generation of combat artificial intelligence GNB-SCR C.2.B operates all 3X1 models. The first three letters are an acronym for “General Nuts and Bolts,” while the second group of letters initialize a family of combat-AI systems known as the Sea Current. Known for their reliability, the Sea Current combat AIs are famous for the ability to "sweep out communications" of other competitive combat-AI systems if given enough time and the proper strategy. In addition, 3X1s use the specialized tracking system SCR-FAD. C.2.B is fully compatible with the first-generation systems with which 533 models are equipped and also has built-in ARS hierarchy systems.



Under the hood:
To satisfy the needs of the special operations it is mostly deployed on, 3X1 uses a modified version of GNB’s powerful engine complex RSS. Geared mostly toward speed and extra energy, 3X1 uses Reconstructive Synergy Systems – Tsunami (RSS-T.) Like the base model, the RSS-T complex is famous for its ability to "reconstruct" energy from the past to use in the present time.

Weapon system:
Combat droids 533 and 3X1 both use the REM (Ridgeon Extinguisher Mill) weapons entity. However, to suit its smaller body and the different energy outputs, inside the 3X1, the REM is split into three smaller systems to produce a destructive chemical energy called Ridgeon which the droid fires as a weapon.

Thresher 533 concept

click to enlarge
Thresher 533 info card:
AOM classification: Combat droid (CBD)
Surface Material: SPC-X 300
Operating system: GNB-SCR C.1.A
Engine type: Reconstructive Synergy System (RSS)
Manufacturer: General Nuts and Bolts

Inspiration:
Basic agricultural equipment, harvester combines and tractors were the main inspiration for this droid. The 533 was a type of old agricultural tractor.

Basic info:
The 533 is a large, mechanized combat droid of enormous brute strength and firepower. It rates top of its class among combat droids in the Age of Machines world in both of these categories. On the offense, this machine is cautious but meticulous with best results in open-field warfare, where its slower speed, lower agility and slightly lesser flying abilities become less relevant. This machine executes more than a thousand different, complicated maneuvers and strategies through its specialized operating system.

The surface:
SPC-X 300 is the popular name for the chemically complex and extremely durable alloy used to manufacture the 533. The exact chemical formula for this alloy is a closely guarded secret. The only known facts are that the metals used to produce SPC (Superior Protective Compound) come from Xarrantas's moon Etre-1, known as the El Dorado of metals.

click to enlarge

Operating system:
The 533 operates under the guidance of combat artificial intelligence GNB-SCR C.1.A. It belongs to the General Nuts and Bolts family of combat AIs known as the Sea Current. The Sea Current systems are not as fast as other combat-AI systems but are extremely reliable and difficult to hack or intercept. They have the ability to "sweep out the communications" of other AIs during battle. ARS (advanced rank system) is a variation of the pioneering Floating Hierarchy analysis system (from Weiss-Pickerton) built into Sea Current AIs, tweaked by GNB. (Read more about Floating Hierarchy in post about Mamluk SAD.)

Under the hood:
To analyze sources of energy and combine them into a mix most suitable for the "super energy" the 533 runs on, the 533 uses an advanced engine complex known as the Reconstructive Synergy System (RSS.) When presented with only weak energy sources (or in a hypothetical world with no energy whatsoever), the RSS is capable of "reconstructing" past energy sources and using them in the present to power the 533.

Weapon system:
The 533 uses the complex REM (Ridgeon Extinguisher Mill) weapons entity. REM produces a destructive chemical energy called Ridgeon, which can penetrate even the densest surfaces.

Mathos CTU concept


Mathos CTU info card:
AOM classification: Open source droid/mercenary droid (OSD/MCD)
Surface Material: Scinica XFC
Operating system: WHM-GMM T-1.X
Engine type: Randusa Force Collector (RFC)
Manufacturer: Advanced Tools and Hardware

Inspiration:
The mercenaries of Carthage fought in First Punic War against Rome, then started the Mercenary War over money owed to them. Mathos was one of the mercenary leaders. The three-letter suffix, one of which is given to all Age of Machine robots, is derived from the names “Carthage,” “Tunisia” and “Utica.”

Basic info:
The Mathos CTU is an open-source combat droid able to be customized and reprogrammed. Unlike the droids produced by the major Age of Machines industries, the CTU can fight for any cause, civilization or person. Thus, all such open-source droids carry a label—mercenary droids. There are many varieties of CTU in the Age of Machines world. Due to the broad range of potential changes to this droid, these mercenaries vary in strength and ability. Per the original factory settings designed by Advanced Tools and Hardware, the CTU is a light combat droid best suited for guerilla warfare. Like other Age of Machines droids, the CTU is able to execute thousands of unique military combat strategies, all outlined by its operating system.

Surface:
There are many varieties of CTU around the Age of Machines world. This droid can function even with basic aluminum arms and legs if necessary. However, employing such primitive metals and alloys will affect the functions and abilities of this droid. Factory models come with an intricate metal admixture labeled Scinica XFC. Although the official chemical breakdown of this admixture has not been publicly released, it is believed that Scinica is mostly made of the metals Scirium and Ryca, which are found in the TGV-15 galaxy. The admixture XFC is difficult to track, even with the sophisticated military radar equipping Age of Machines robots.



Operating system:
Unaltered factory-version CTUs are equipped with combat artificial intelligence system WHM-GMM T-1.X. It is based on Weiss-Pickerton's pioneering combat artificial intelligence system BPR-CMN, but modified to enhance the CTU’s stealth mode and excel in guerilla warfare. The WHM in the system name stands for “Westholmme,” the founder of Advanced Tools and Hardware. GMM is the family to which all combat AIs from ATH belong, and it is an acronym for “Ghastly Morning Mist.”

Under the hood:
In comparison to other AOM droids, the most innovative and advantageous part of the CTU is its Randusa Force Collector engine system. It collects energy that is about to be created, sort of traveling to the future to use it to propel the present. RFC is able to collect one source of energy from the future as well as to "steal" energy from other systems, giving the CTU the initial advantage and the element of surprise.

Weapon system:
As with other AOM droids, the CTU’s weapon systems are tied to the engine systems. This means CTUs don't carry any traditional weapons; the droids themselves are weapons. CTUs are equipped with PurePact Blasters that use powerful PurePact energy rays to destroy targets. Energy outputs are located on the most convenient spots on the droid's body, eyes, chest and palms.
