The TCD-3000E is the latest in Shikomi Industries'
Tactical Combat Drone series of autonomous weapons
platforms. The hexapedal chassis allows traversal of
extremely rough terrain, and incorporates radar and IR
stealthing and a camoumer coating. A 0.2ASU
distributed brain allows for sophisticated behaviour and
decision-making in a wide range of theatres. Power is
supplied by a 1MW MHD turbine. The drone has a
comprehensive onboard sensor suite, together with a
tightbeam link to a remote sensor system consisting of
a synthetic aperture aerostat array. A typical armament
package consists of twin 20mm rotary autocannons
with smart rounds, a 100kJ point-defence pulse laser
and 36 multirole tac-missiles with a variety of warheads.
