Everyone loves medics, right? Well, pretty much, yeah. But still, accidents happen. And "accidents". Can't be too safe.
About this creation
Although ads for the officers showing pictures of the Trans-National War Crimes Court with a caption saying "leave us alone and we'll leave you alone", and for the troops pictures of sick children captioned "doctors are apolitical: we don't care who wins, as long as no-one's shooting at us" seem to help.
So, the great big red cross on the front: that, combined with the white paint and noticeable lack of weapons, is designed to make it very clear that it's totally harmless and not about to blow anyone up.
Although if those NeoCrusader nutters on the Rim ever get around to acting on their threats, it might have to be replaced with something different.
The backpack is fairly large and stuffed with medical supplies; it also has a hook for a first aid kit, if there isn't enough time on hand for surgery.
And a multispectrum communication system, I forgot to mention that.
Reason for no suit = A, if you're going to carry out surgery, you don't want great big metal gloves in the way, and B, you don't want the sheer strength of an exoskeleton on hand to magnify any twitches you might make.
Slightly different angle.
Oh, and a Space Viking version, too.
(Bit at the bottom isn't quite what it sounds like. It actually involved a very advanced prototype mecha with very immature designers, and the way it blew up after an ammo feed ruptured and spilled caseless ammunition on an overheating hip joint.)
Quoting karsten Rees
'different view' is funny and i like the rebels and stormtroopers and could a 'accident' be caused by the medic?
Only if he's suicidal. In this particular instance 'accident' means something that's actually an accident; like dropping a bucket of paint. '"accident"' means something that isn't an accident at all, but is pretended to be one; like deliberately pouring paint on someone's car and saying you fumbled the bucket.
I especially liked the space vikings. Everything needs more guns! The medsuit is a very practical design, and the ethos that medics should not be armed and not shot at should be the ideal. Great rendition! ^Blub^
