Explore the outer gates beyond the extremes of human endurance by sending the C3 Drone commander.
C3 Drone Commander
There are any number of situations that the IMTel of the Panhuman Concord deems too dangerous for human troops. Admittedly the military shards of the C3 have some discretion to override the extremes of riskaversion that dominate the Concord’s civil shards, but even so, there are many reasons why some ventures must be undertaken by machines.
Drone commanders often lead formations comprising only other machines, or with only limited and carefully protected human elements. Other drone commanders lead ordinary formations of Strike troops or fulfil the same functions as human commanders.
Keeping the Concord troops out of harm’s way is the new C3 Iso-drone.
Isolator or Isoshields are a kind of forcefield bubble that is selectively permeable to the atmosphere, temperature and nanosphere where present. Large, static devices can create isolation zones encompassing entire buildings. Smaller, mobile machines have a correspondingly smaller field size.
Isodrones are general purpose drones fitted with mobile isoshield generators. Those in service with the Concord C3 are based on C3D1 General Purpose drones, whilst other variations are found based on all manner of similarly sized drones. They are commonly used on worlds with intolerable atmospheres to provide safe refuge for survey and exploration teams.
Isodrones are heavily protected by kinetic armour as well as substantial nanocored casing. The isoshield creates immense gravitational resistance that makes it impossible for the drone to move very quickly. As a result, the isodrone is a sluggish machine that moves only slowly.
