space robot in trouble
Last night’s mech in action, narrowly avoiding a space station’s defenses.
Some sketches of the space equipment of last night’s robot
The original “Cicada”, meant for use in space. It features a set of large unfolding radiators on its back, rotating attitude jets and disposable fuel tanks which double as stabilizers. This equipment would all be removed when “Cicadas” were converted for ground operation. Additionally, the original head was found to be unreliable in atmosphere and prone to breaking down, so most remaining units have replacement or custom-built heads.
