Modern Technology

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Redred33mer on Sat Feb 09, 2013 2:16 am

This thread is about commonly seen pieces of technology in the times. I will first deal with Omega Division infantry aspects, then I will deal with ground vehicles, then aviation vehicles, but not all at once. If you would like to add, let's say, a weapon or vehicle to this list or multiple, PM me and send me some information about it before making it official. In fact, I encourage others to come up with more ideas because I will only do the bare minimum to fulfill these areas, but don't go overboard.

Tyanide - the fictional metal.

Image

Tyanide is often referred to as a fictional metal because of its incredible resilience to damage. It dwarfs the toughness of diamond and other alloys manufactured from minerals found solely on Earth. Tyanide is also the most dangerous to get, as it's found under the unpredictable oceans of Zhark. It is the most valuable metal within the Planetary Union because of its sole origin, as far as we know, on Zhark. Tyanide has it own magnetic field, which some research is being done between the relationship of the amounts of Tyanide found so far on Zhark and the storminess of the planet. The Omega Division is still trying to implement it in its technologies, but, there has only been one place they have been able to implement it in one unit because Tyanide does like to disrupt electronics. There will perhaps be no end of the study of Tyanide. Some have thought of using it as a means of generating electricity.

ODA Armor
Image

ODA armor means "Omega Division Adaptive armor," meaning this will suit the class of a certain individual. A class suited for heavier combat would have heavier plating, would be resistant to explosives and hold well against bullets, but might be weak at the joints and have lower mobility, to say. A sniper-like class might have lower armor strength, high mobility, and be weak in its defense. Something more like a reconnaissance or raiding class could have higher armor strength, be resilient against bullets, have admirable mobility, but be weak against explosives.

Infantry Ballistics

Manufacturer(s): Veinhammer Foundries

Image

The above is the Veinhammer CW-35-LR. It's a customizable laser rifle, and proves efficient on frontlines and in raids. It's practically an all purpose weapons. To reload is mainly just to put a new battery that will last 50-60 rounds. However, since it is a laser weapon, it is easily detected once its wielder opens fire. The rifle is capable of taking down some tanks with some seconds of repeated fire at its engines, but that runs the risk of being too open. Its under-barrel attachment shoots small explosive projectiles effective in taking out clusters of infantry or small drones.

Image

The above is the Veinhammer MM-9VS. This bolt-action rifle in particular can be linked to the wielders armor suit to give useful information. It has a conveniently interactive scope that tells the distance to the target aimed at, the rifle itself can display wind speed and the magnitude of the Coriolis effect for the sniper at the designated target. A target can be marked by an under-barrel trigger. However, if the shooter loses focus on the target, the information will fade away and a target will need to be marked again.

Image

The above is the Veinhammer EPR-D37. This rifle loads a 3 round clip of lithium rockets which acts as the butt of the weapon, where a chemical reaction upon missile's impact occurs and even though it's a small rocket, is capable of shattering heavier tanks and rotor-wings.

Image

The above is the Veinhammer FS-PS10. It is a laser-shooting, rapid fire machine gun which shoots a devastating laser at 600 rounds per minute, or 10 rounds per second. To reduce recoil and increase convenience, the gun is able to clip on to the hip of its wielder. Additionally, a laser-sight is added to the weapon to give an idea to its user of where the next shot is going to land. It's great at leveling the field.

Image

The above, the Veinhammer PH-C.60 is a 60 caliber handgun which is incredibly deadly and precise. Standing in its way means certain death.



Ground Vehicles

Image

Two man crew
The VPI-14-Multitask has its name state its purpose. The Multitask is able to lay down heavy fire upon an area while anywhere between 5 to 8 soldiers unload from the back and deploy under the cover of this speedy vehicle. While operating, the Multitask can also surf different telecommunication lines to intercept enemy messages and conversations, and is vital before and during operations so the acting forces can respond as necessary.


Image

Two man crew
The R9-2T-Chaos doesn't have its name for no reason. The Chaos brings devastating force to the ground with 230mm rounds of crystallized carbon, has high mobility, and is able to render air units useless with high-magnitude pulsating lasers all protected by layers of alloys coated in Tyanaide mined from Zhark. Since it has this dual purpose, some units out of this formation will carry more energy cells to provide better anti-air support. The Chaos tank is dominant on the battlefield.

Image

Four man crew
The A-42LB-Euphemism is the embodiment of power. There is no armor force known to be able to compete with this outside of the Omega Division itself. It has a 300mm cannon with rounds of depleted plutonium, a 60 caliber machine gun firing rounds of tungsten, and a single anti-aircraft laser-shooting pod slightly heavier than that of the R9-2T-Chaos. Let's not mention that its armor plating is entirely of Tyanide. It also has the capability to surf telecommunications networks like the VPI-14-Multitask, and because of the sheer size and magnitude of these vehicular menaces, the UPAF has only manufactured 42 of these, two of which are in reserve for replication and replacement. As if a Euphemism could be destroyed.


Aviation Vehicles

Image

Two man crew
The IW-17-Transcendent is one of the fighters employed by the UPAF that can traverse orbital flight and sub-exospheric flight; meaning it could fly into space and back if it wanted to without having any trouble at all. The Transcendent can be deployed from space or from the ground, and is regarded as a jump-jet. It excels at intercepting fighters in space and providing tactical support to ground forces. It deploys laser cannons for aerial dogfights and strafing runs, and small proton missiles for heavier targets.

Image

Two man crew
Standing above most others of its type, the HOA-5-Marauder is one of the most exceptional fighters of its time. Not only can it cross between atmospheric boundaries, but it carries firepower to take out entire defensive lines. An outstanding ground support fighter with homing missiles, few other aviation vehicles its size can escape its wrath.


Image

Supports up to 4,050 people, five hundred man crews.
This serves as the capitol ship base structure for all U.O.S.'s (Union Owned Ship). Capitol ships are to provide adequate fire support and a place for fighters to dock, rearm, then set flight again. They also carry a large railgun at the core, and when unleashed it can tear holes in opposing fleets and defense platforms.


Image

Twenty five man crew, up to two hundred passengers.
The UW-Magnus-M120 is the method of interplanetary troop transport selected by the UPAF. It has some armaments to provide support to its unloading soldiers. Usually, the ship will land in places with little opposition, near an enemy camp (not outpost or base), a civilian city/town, or a forest, even. It can could carry 3 Euphemisms if loaded on, and it could carry 200 infantry. Scores of Magni (plurual for Magnus) can only mean bad news for the enemy as the Magnus is heavily armored and takes a beating before incapacitating.


Image

Fifty man crew
The Anomaly Class Frigate is an all-purpose frigate used by the UPAF; it provides a fair amount of support against fighters and has heavier cannons and armaments to deal with ships its size. It also has a hangar, used for obvious reasons that stores about 1/3 what a capitol ship could carry, and what would look like another hangar is a platform for the small railgun on board. With this equipment, the frigate becomes a great support ship.


Image

Two man crew
The UW-Magnite is a smaller dropship for smaller numbers. These are used for more strategic insertions of UPAF forces. It is also capable of unleashing a flurry of missiles upon any strategic target, allowing safer travel to destinations and the ability for the dropship to defend itself.

Standard Med-Scanner v.3.0

Image

This hand-held med-scanner is standard issue for UPAF, though many divisions still have the clunkier 2.5. Sporting a small LCD screen and an aiming laser in the front, the scanner offers the following services:

++ Quick, accurate temperature check by scanning the patient with the laser for 5-10 seconds.

++ Quick, sketchy x-rays using low-radiation imagery which will not harm the patient if used in moderation. Usually detailed enough to find internal bleeding, broken bones, fractures, and the like. Smaller details like cysts or inflamed cells need to be checked using different technology.

++ Pinpointing foreign objects in the body through a scan feature that separates biological matter from non-living material. Useful for finding shrapnel and bullets.

++ Quick-result diagnostics for blood testing (as well as other bodily fluids.) Patient’s samples are put onto a small plastic strip and fed through the scanner. Results in 1-2 minutes through accessing the medical mainframe.

++ Medical dictionary that cross-references symptoms and comes up with a list of possible hits.

++ Large data storage capacity for keeping medical records of patients close at hand.

The type of med-scanner used by the UPAF links up to ODA armor and improves the scanner's capabilities.

Manufacturer: MedTech Industries



Advanced med-pack (Omega Division issue)

Image

Contained in a waterproof, fire-resistant white pack (which comes in a variety of colors) are the following items:

++ Stims: injections that enhance the performance of the body or otherwise stimulate the patient.
-- Adrenal (for starting someone’s heart and milder ones for a quick energy boost when needing to flee combat)
-- Energy (even milder for strength to continue walking on little rest and food)

++ Narcs: sedative injections (varying degrees of strength, the strongest of which knocks the patient out for up to 12 hours)

++ PKs: pain-killer injections (standard issue, usually one strength.) If a stronger dose is needed the medic usually goes straight to the sedative.

++ Regens: injections to help speed up the body’s natural healing process (stimulate cell growth and regeneration.) ONLY to be used in moderation as too many doses have been linked to certain kinds of cancer. They are also riotously expensive, so only to be used in emergencies. It won’t heal a bullet wound in five minutes flat or anything like that, but it can help to close and clot a wound just enough to save someone’s life when the alternative is bleeding out. To be used with digression since some soldiers have had severe allergic reactions to this.

++ Epis: a modernized version of the epi-pen, to deal with sudden, severe allergic reactions. Injected into the thigh (not very altered since the 21st century).

++ Expandable splints: Small metal splints that expand outward to whatever size is needed. Used to brace broken limbs.

++ Expandable stretcher: folds down into a small cloth square. Expands so one person can drag a wounded soldier off the field without jostling him/her.

++ Salves: burn salves, soothing salves for wounds, salves for frostbite. Will not help 3rd degree burns magically heal or reverse the effects of severe frostbite, but can help more mild cases.

++ Shots: (not to be confused with vaccinations) These are “shots” of medicines that are taken orally. Used to soothe respiratory ailments, heat a cold soldier or cool down one with a fever.

++ Standard swabs, bandages, medical scissors, antiseptic swabs.

++ Pack does not contain vaccinations. All vaccinations to relevant diseases must be done before the mission begins.

NOTE: Standard med packs have fewer stims, shots, and no use of regens at all.

Ac2C6 Torch

A standard engineering tool that can be used to cut and weld heavy metals.
The Ac2C6 uses a highly compressed bromide gas mixture, that when fired through the nozzle with the assistance of a crystal focused beam creates an intense short range arc torch. A trapping nozzle guard scatters the light created by the torch and makes it far safer to use without face shield then many other normal applicators.
This tool is by far one of the most widely used in the UPAF and can be found in a large assortment of sizes to fit any application. The Torch is so reliable that it can be used in any environment passed through simulation, save for ones filled with highly combustible material.


Image
Phalanx PDA

Though considered a PDA in soul the Phalanx is by far the most expensive piece of hardware that a UPAF soldier can ever be requisitioned.
A impact resistant casing forms the outer shell of the device while a semi conductive gel layer serves for control applications and ensures no forces penetrates past the first shell. Beyond that it uses a synthetic ruby lined processor, 56 hour rechargeable battery pact, and a synthetic diamond oval chip containing a Tyanide line microprocessor inside. This gives the unit a memory capacity of 1.01 zettabyte (~1 billion terabytes)
The Phalanx can be oporated easily with a touch screen interface or even in some cases a voice recognition program can assist as with navigation. It can interact with wireless arrays and even be hard wired with a singular junction to form a physical circuit.
The Phalanx has only been in service for several months and is still considered to be in the experimental stages with only forty one units being dispersed among the UPAF's most notable troop regiments. Coming equipped with extra toys has raised the price on a singular unit to that of what a UPAF Admiral makes in a twenty year annual salary.

+Information on all the units contained by the UPAF concerning hardware of all types is stored on the Phalanx allowing the user to bring up blueprints for vehicles, building, and weapons. Many of which are also used by the enemy.

+Diagnostic programs can be used to search out and define what is wrong with a concerned objective and the Phalanx is even capable of scanning a soldiers hard suit through the software embedded in its casing.

+Holographic projection is possible through the focal lens on the back of the Phalanx which also doubles as the visual scanner. This allows the user to project images in a larger format for others to easily view.

It is widely believed among technicians and engineers that these devices are capable of anything, but only if you can make it do that yourself given the right treatment and application.
