well, this is what the recon drone looks like, for the VS at least:

Neat! It's slightly larger than I expected. Please tell me I can fit my fireworks gun to it.

Re: Adam Clegg @Arclegger talks Weapons


Wow much bigger then I anticipated. That big and it could become a weapons platform. Depends on the utility options or variations of.

If it was simply sentry oriented, why not a simple disc design instead of that clunky tri positional hover design. Would make spotting it harder.

Sentry
Give it a 360 degree spotting radius that sends a warning beep that increases frequency as an enemy gets closer so it can be useful while looking downscope when the infiltrator is most vulnerable.

For the one shown above, give it guided camera view but what would be neat is the ability to share its viewing with squad mates like a PIP.

Edit; Also, allow it to maintain a hover position even without hands on the stick, that would provide the infiltrator with a constant view on your HUD. You could keep eyes on a doorway or building while moving toward it through cover. Once again, having the ability to share this with squad mates would be fantastic for overwatch duty.

.
RECON DRONE;
- one-man piloted. No weapons system. Perhaps consider letting it drop Motion Sensors, Mines, Proximity mines,...
RECON DRONE shows enemy & friendly to your Empire. Your drone covers (Via Cert Tree) a radius of; 20m/40m/60m/80m/100m. This drone information goes to ALL Outfit (or Squad) members wherever they are on the Continent. Recone Drone sighting(s) goes out to ALL Empire Friendles in a 750m radius. Flying Range of Recon Drone varies based on weather, lighting, day/night, enemy fire or countermeasures,.... efffectively controlled by R/C pilot at ranges up to 600-750m ..... sometimes, if you are on high ground, you can approach close to 1,000m search (and return) ranges.

ASSAULT DRONE;
2-man operated. One flies the drone, the other operates the weapons system. Choice of any 2ndary unit off of vehicle pool, or any primary weapon off of Lightning.
Three Cert classes of ASSAULT DRONE; Stealth, Armored, Attack. The weapon platform allowed increases for each class, but your ability to avoid enemy detection or fire greatly diminish. Attack" Drone is only Cert Tree which can use Lightning weapons. Imagine a Skyguard Drone hovering at 700m altitude. hmmmmmm.....

Do lock-on rocket launchers lock-on to it?

Would be nice, but then the Striker... a lot of TR have them. Wouldn't imagine a drone staying up long against TR specifically.

That's not a recon drone. That's the new taco and burrito delivery system. Hungry but stuck in an ongoing never-ending battle? Order some tacos and get them delivered today. Drone delivers tacos to your location (except Esamir, that place is too cold).

Agree'd, looks nanite systems-ish. besides, if there were a VS design it wouldn't have silly fan blades, it'd use Mag-lev tech :P

I'm sorry I didn't quite catch that over the sounds of heresy.
I'm sure what you meant to write was that you would kill VS for that.
