Arriving to support your Antarean forces are the Nano Probes and buddy drones. Used to accomplish a variety of roles from protection, defence and communications these drones are commonplace in any army.
A nano drone is a special kind of buddy drone keyed to the brain patterns of an individual NuHu. It exudes a high‐ density cloud of nanites that are specifically attuned to their NuHu master– an IMTel microsphere – and can build a permeable suspensor field around the NuHu’s body.
Nanoprobes emit a permeable suspensor field which acts as armour, weaponry and as a superconductive medium that connects all of the combat shards of a force together. NuHu rarely expose themselves to danger without attendant nano drones.
A medi‐probe is a medi‐drone operating as part of a probe shard rather than as a buddy drone. A medi‐drone is a mobile medical drone that is able to administer immediate care to the wounded – an essential addition to a command group to maintain it’s combat abilities in a firefight.
Shield drones are small, agile sacriﬁcial buddy drones whose role is to protect the units they are with by intercepting enemy shots or blows before they can inﬂict any serious damage. They are almost always destroyed as a result of their eﬀorts, but fortunately, they are created to be entirely cheerful about their fate and take their protective duties extremely seriously.
The batter drone is a defensive buddy drone that projects a kinetic energy shield or batter shield that can deﬂect or absorb incoming attacks. Kinetic shields are kinds of suspensor ﬁelds – the same sort of invisible energy ﬁelds that enable drones to hover and vehicles to move eﬀortlessly through the air.
A compactor drone carries a generous material load in a stable compressor ﬁeld. It is employed to transport equipment up to a certain size. One in-game use is to enable a bike mounted unit to function temporarily as infantry by folding its machines into its compression ﬁeld.
Gun drones are armed buddy drones whose role is to act as guardians or sentries. A gun drone can be armed with any standard type of weapon but is usually equipped with a plasma carbine.
