With land-based vehicles needing a forward eye-in-the-sky resource, VDS grants them the IARD. The Intermediate Aerial Reconnaissance Drone is a light-weight autonomous aircraft that has an endurance time of roughly 35 hours. It's, more or less, a pseudo-AWACS. The powerhouse of the unit is a compressed mixed-fuel unit. There is no payload for weapons at this point, but a future variant may be made to remove the radar superstructure and add two weapon hard-points.
About this creation
IARD compared to an engineer.
Note: This is pretty much your standard tablescrap. I had a lack of morale from several WIPs not meeting expectations, so this was the product of my sadness.
