Fast, tough and versatile, the Cyclops is a rising threat in Blacktron-scoured space!
About this creation
The Cyclops is a new class of A.I.-assisted vehicles that Blacktron derived from stolen ArcheoGenis designs.
Its dynamic yet bulky hull allows it to be successfully emplyed either as a heavy deep-space fighter, or as a light hover tank.
The Cyclops' main features are the powerful deflectors on its prongs. Other than providing a strong defensive field, they can be used to project a destructive particle stream on a wide arc, at a fairly long range for such a weapon.
The vehicle is also armed with 2 twin-mounted plasma turrets, and the A.I.'s independent "head" has a powerful laser cutter inthe eye.
The cyclops also has a good dose of shield emitters and various greebles.
Main thrusters. Its maneuvering thrusters are on top of the prongs, giving is an excellent maneuvrability for its weight.
Vertical configuration. The head and cokpit can swivel freely, giving the Cyclops no fixed configuration when in space. It still needs to stay horizontal when operating inside a planet's gravity.
Also I forgot to metion that the cockpit can detach and act as an escape pod, but you'll have to trust me on that, I'm not going to go take more pics at this moment.
So, I hope you liked it, and as usual let me know what you think :)
That is very cool. The ship has a cool profile, and the fact that you can configure it vertically is a fantastic bonus. I really like that it is both symmetric and asymmetric in shape. The Asymmetry of the AI head and the manned pod hark back to the time of the Renegade. The Blacktron will become even more powerful with this ship in their fleet.
