design by Antti Lahtinen
An ABC Warrior is about three times heavier than a human of same size. The light tentacle which contain laser cutter and power interface is normally retracted within the robot's chest.
The photovoltage cell will require 290 hours of 1 kW/m2 radiation to completely recharge the battery. In Terra this would take ~24 days. Because of this solar-charging, an abandoned ABC Warrior might be functional centuries after the war has ended. ABSs may carry folding photovoltage cells or generators for field recharging.
Program interface allows robots to swap skill programs (40 memory units available). Since the tentacle allows fine manipulation, an ABC Warrior may also have various non-combat skill programs, including engineering, electronics, mechanics, intrusion, etc. With suitable skill, and ABC Warrior may repair itself or another robot.
For 151,900 Cr additional price the brain can be replaced with advanced model with more synaptic processors (INT 5) and self-learning synaptic memory (EDU 4, can learn up to EDU 8). The advanced brain usually includes Emotion Simulation, and the self-learning memory allows the robot to develop personality. ("Lara succeeded. I finally felt a real emotion. It was 'hate'.")
According to VF, the robot brain consumes 1 kW power, which is quite ridiculois amouont. More reasonable value for this 18-processor brain would be 180 W or less.
All major joints are covered with ballistic cloth to keep them free of dirt. Some robots may wear additional replaceable protection over smaller joints to prevent dust wear and increase maintenance intervals. Because of this, a group of ABC Warriors may appear to be a mixed group of individually equipped robots vearing bits of human uniforms.
This design was built with a mix of Book 8: Robots and Vampire Fleet rules.
