the Astranian dogs out match us in every field!
so it falls apon you to aid us in evening the playing field

we need concept designs for new infantry equipement of any sort, an army is built on it's people!
we need concept designs for new vehicle types, to surprise the enemy and support our fighting men and women!
we need concept designs for new aircraft/starships, the enemies strength lies in thier airforce, this is a strength we must try to match!

the best design in each of these three fields will be well rewarded.
be sure to provide a detailed discription of the design's purpose an functions
if you have any further inquiries let them be made known

Designed with ambushing in mind, this tank jumps from a covered ditch and fires all its weapons at the same time to destroy everything around it. It takes a while to reload, but the idea is that the enemyis neutralised before it has it.
Rapid fire cannons for infantry and light vehicles, missles against tanks and aircrafts.

The top can spin around to deliver damage in a 360 degree angle.

Representing T-Systems here!

You want air-superiority, yes? Let's throw orbit-superiority as a bonus!
ALOHO-MF is capable of fucking your enemies' shit up in air and orbit!

ALOHO-MF is fast and agile vehicle packing quite bit of firepower. It is equipped two tracking hell of guns designed to eat shielded bitches for breakfast! Tail also sports few automated guns to deal with any bastards trying to attack you from behind.
It can be also fitted with a smaller gatling-gun to deal with some pesky ground-infantry. Handling missiles is no problem.

It can advance in any direction you can think of. Forward, backward, left, right, up, down, turnways, whatever! This vehicle also works perfectly in large amount of atmospheres.
See that spotlight? It's almost useless. ALOHO-MF is fitted with many sophisticated sensors that will aid pilot a hell of a lot!

Aircraft is coated with chromogenic material. Basically, when it is exposed to intense laser, it chances colour!
This increases defenses against monochromatic lasers with wavelength of 640-750 nm!

They can also be programmed to fly unmanned! Isn't that awesome?

Chain-cannon makes sure that even tough targets get pulverized! Minigun ensures that everyone at close range will die.
Missiles will guarantee that annoying air-targets get shit all over.

Sounds quite promising, yes? This is a tough tank. A tough motherfucker. It takes punishment like a man. While ensuring unsafety of any enemy around, it ensures safety of any crew-member inside!

Now we are getting very serious!
See this?

This is a walking fortress. It doesn't fuck around.
Think about it. You are minding your astranian shitty business, when suddenly you see something in the horizon. It is a spidermech, a mountain or-?
It is a fucking fortress. On legs. Strong legs. Coming to fuck your shit up totally.
It is equipped with several heavy missile-pads, long-mid range cannons, mortars, anti-personnel machine-guns, mine-laying-system, extremely thick armor designed against energy-weapons such as lasers and particle-weapons as well as conventional weapons and a fucking huge-ass cannon. It can fire nukes. Big nukes.
You cannot absolutely imagine how huge this beast is. It is fucking enormous. Despite looking bit clumsy, this thing is capable of treading even more difficult terrains.
Oh, I can read minds! I can see your next question; 'how big crew does it require'.
Crew of five. Or if you are really adventurous, you can dump those four buddies and ride it all alone!

It is one our more expensive weapons, but man, you should get it. You are no gentleman if you do not have one.

And although I admit I don't follow this setting as closely as some (I haven't even read many of your quests, to be quite honest) I do understand that the humans are not exactly at a huge advantage in this war. Thus there should logically be a fair bit of civilian vehicles and gear pressed into service.

Well, down at the WarTech Industries labs we've been keeping this one under wraps for a few reasons, but if it's an emergency you might find some use for it despite its shortcomings.

The astranians have a significant battlefield advantage in their ability to produce and utilize shield generators capable of stopping even high explosives. Our infantry are sorely outmatched, lacking any way to deal with heavily entrenched positions without heavy armored backup. We have been trying to research captured astranian technology, but we still haven't been able to figure out exactly how to make the shields work, or even the full details of their functionality. That technology remains beyond us today, and we'll need to keep working into tomorrow. However, research has yielded significant advancements in energy storage and transferral technology. And in that we have found a potential solution to the astonishing durability of astranian targets.

Presenting the WT-X7 'Penetrator' man-portable railgun system. The weapon itself is a marvel of engineering, Firing High-Density rods of currently classified alloys at incredible speeds. There haven't been any field tests, but the current theory is that these rods should be able to punch through astranian shielding with raw ballistic force, ideally taking down the shield and dealing significant damage to any furs or structures seeking shelter behind them.

There are a number of problems that have yet to be worked out, though. Cooling is an issue, trying to fire more than 2 rounds per minute will almost certainly foul the chamber within 4 minutes, and the time only extends to 10 minutes of theoretical combat operation (17 minutes of continuous fire at 1 RpM have been accomplished in laboratory conditions) at 1 RpM. Fouling the barrel will necessitate the complete replacement of the acceleration units as well as the barrel itself. The gun is also fairly useless for sniping operations, as it makes one hell of a racket and produces what is affectionately referred to among the researches as 'the five-mile muzzle flash,' as the friction from the rod flying through a typical earth-like atmosphere will ignite the air around it. However, the weapon remains (in theory) a very effective (if situational) heavy weapon for use by well-trained troops. The only problem in that regard is the considerable recoil and weight of the weapon, but that's where the next part of the system comes in.

The real beauty of the system isn't the gun itself, it's the powered endoskeleton system that comes with it. The ES contains a fully-integrated mechanical support system which will allow a soldier to both carry more weight than a normal soldier as well as march and fight for longer periods without succumbing to exhaustion. The suit also contains various apparatuses used to connect to the WT-X7 rail gun, allowing it to absorb a significant majority of the shock produced by firing it. It still kicks like a mule, but with the suit it doesn't kick like a 300 foot mule.

With some minor modifications to the standard designs, Body Armor can be equipped over the majority of the endoskeleton (the Recoil Reduction harnesses will need to be exposed in order to be used, which requires further modification to the suit). Further, many standard heavy weapons, including those mounted on light vehicles, can be modified to fit the RRH's hookups and carried into combat by the troops, increasing the potential firepower of an equipped soldier dramatically. Even without the RRH, the suit's powered systems have been theorized to increase the functional combat-capable time of a soldier by as much as 115% by reducing the stress and exertion upon their bodies. It is expensive, and requires the modification of any body armor the troops would be wearing, but it should be a worthy addition to our forces.

Ideally this equipment should give our boys and girls on the ground a better chance at fighting the stranners at an equal footing. The technology still is not perfect, but great strides are being made every day at WTI. With the funding gained from a full military contract, along with the field testing (which should be more like field-proving) that can be gained by putting our products into service in at least a limited regard, it will only improve.

How do shaped charges work vs shields?

I'm assuming Explosively Formed Penetrators are good versus shields. Solid shot weapons are "medium" at penetrating shields, implying they can be penetrated at all. If EFPs can't do it, nothing (short of maybe saboted tank guns) can do it.

If memory serves, it worked so well that in theory it could simply keep flying non-stop at a constant rate of acceleration.

It was also an air-cooled unshielded nuclear reactor flying around. It's the kind of complete "fuck you" weapon that can only exist in a MAD scenario because ultimately you've built an autonomous low-altitude jet-powered nuclear bomber (note it's carrying bombs, not is one itself!) that leaves a nice little trail of fallout (and supersonic shockwaves) in its wake. A mid-'50s nuclear^2 bomber UAV. Truly bonkers.

Obviously the Solars would need to adapt it as illustrated to take on the Astranaian Menace.

No. 39741 ID: 0d9cc4

All this talk about water got me thinking about practical uses for it. You could actually create a layer of reactive armor against laser weapons by simply attaching water containers to the sides of vehicles. When hit, the laser would cause the water to change to steam and explode outward from the vehicle. The steam cloud would then scatter the light from the laser and make it much less effective, hopefully to the point where it's no longer a threat to the "normal" armor underneath the reactive water armor.

Actually if scattering the laser beams from Astranian weapons is effective smoke grenades and smoke projectors should be standard equipment for Solar forces.

>>349541
The best armor versus lasers is the personnel armor from Halo, which used ablative layers of ceramic alloys that evaporate away when hit rather than allowing the target to be broiled, and it also removes some of the punch of the kinetic force as well.

It might not actually be possible to waterproof raytech guns. To completely seal them, they would need to cover the part where the laser comes out, and that would require a material that can stop water while being transparent to (and completely unharmed by) powerful lasers. [And if the Astranians had such a material, they would be foolish not to use much more of it for other purposes, like bulletproof panes that they can shoot through but humans can't.]

Someone needs to make a giant robot; it'd be wrong if there wasn't one. I'm gonna have a go here, but I'm pretty terrible at designing mechanical things.

The Reversible Ordinance and Bombardment Outwork is not terribly effective as a practical engine of war, but none of our technology matches the astranians in that field: few things can match the humanoid mecha, however, as a monument for raw morale-boosting power, and in this we can truly exceed our enemies! Sheer size is a very basic instinctual force, not only to bolster allies but to terrify enemies; against the puny astranians, this psychological aspect shall only be even more effective. The design, as you can see here, is blocky and solid for stability; it's purpose, basically, is as a mobile defensive emplacement for defending bases and interrupting supply lines. Its heavy armour is spotted with gun turrets for antiaircraft and point defense, with large arm-mounted weapons for picking off vehicles and vessels. All entry points can be sealed off to become water- and air-tight, allowing the ROBO to wade into rivers and lakes for additional defense, and an onboard lifesupport system even allows it to submerge and travel underwater. Some essential maintenance will be required after such missions. These same systems allow the ROBO to deploy on hostile worlds. It can support its normal crew compliment of 20 for several weeks, and its minimal crew of 5 for up to three months.

The ROBO's arms and head can be removed and swapped in modular fashion, as can the chest/shoulder mounted launchers, for versatility against different forces; the entire machine is built in modular fashion for swift replacement of parts and future customization opportunities.

The Mobile Tower family of designs currently in use as heavy police vehicles across many Solar worlds offer a significant advantage in terms of battlefield reconnaissance, but are likewise highly visible, and unfortunately top-heavy when traversing steep terrain. They have seen limited military deployment, but their disadvantages have too often outweighed their usefulness in a combat role.

The Mk1 Arbalest G32 and accompanying UA-3 'Dragonfly' drone, currently in final testing by the military R&D division of Roun-Disbess Technologies, attempts to provide superior reconnaissance capability in a more combat-capable armored vehicle. The full Arbalest system is a potent scout vehicle and light artillery tank.

The heart of the system is undoubtedly the UA-3 Dragonfly, a tethered, counter-rotating UAV with a full suite of visual and EM sensing equipment. Most of the sensors are mounted in its pair of widely set binocular "eyes" to improve the drone's rangefinding capability. The Dragonfly has no onboard fuel supply, reducing the system's weight and size. Power for the electric motor is provided by the parent tank via the umbilical tether. All observation data and control input are likewise relayed to and from the parent tank via this hard-linked umbilical cable, reducing the likelihood of the system being tracked by RF monitoring, and almost completely removing the possibility of signal jamming. The Dragonfly can be stowed for transport, and requires two soldiers approximately four minutes to assemble. Its operator can direct a Dragonfly to move along with the parent vehicle, but the maximum recommended speed for such an operation is only that of a brisk run.

The other half of the system is the tank designed to work with this recon drone. On its own, the Arbalest is, for the most part, a fairly standard modern light tank. Thirty-two tons, crew of three, and a cramped rear compartment capable of carrying 5 additional soldiers. Its main gun is capable of firing three shells in ten seconds, and its auto-loader can support a sustained fire rate of 6 rounds per minute. The turret is capable of 240 degrees of rotation and a high ballistic arc. The Arbalest is relatively lightly armored for a tank of its size, letting it utilize oversized tires instead of a more traditional "tank tread" and still maintain reasonable mobility in rough terrain. The advantage of this design is its greatly increased speed over smooth terrain compared with more heavily armored vehicles.

The true strength of the system however, is the data link between tank and drone. The dragonfly offers unprecedented battlespace mapping capability, allowing the tank to fire on targets indirectly from behind cover. In sufficiently open terrain, the targeting computer is even capable of calculating multiple firing arcs, allowing a stationary tank to fire its full three round hopper at a distant target, and have all three shells impact the area at the same time. The Arbalest also comes equipped with shielded data jacks on either side of its hull, allowing up to five tanks to be wired together to run off of the same drone and targeting system. This means a full squadron is capable of impacting up to fifteen shells on a distant target area in less than a second, utterly devastating unsuspecting enemy emplacements. Of course, such tactics require significant set-up time and suitable terrain, and the light tanks are ill-suited to sustained combat, rendering a chance to execute this tactic only a rare treat.

Of course, despite its narrow profile, a canny enemy may eventually learn to spot a hovering Dragonfly and launch an attack while the Arbalest is vulnerable. Enemies tend to be especially wary of such things after a barrage of shells has just impacted their immediate surroundings. Fortunately, a Dragonfly can also be deployed to run off of a moderately sized generator or battery, and activated either via time delay circuit or radio transponder, opening up a whole world of decoy tactics to the cunning general.

We hope you have enjoyed this presentation. Please consider placing an order for a production run of Arbalest tanks in the near future. A Roun-Disbess representative will be waiting in the back to answer any questions.

Two independently swiveling 150mm recoilless cannon with autoloaders!

Engage multiple targets simultaneously! Outnumbering the K2 2-to-1 means nothing! The enemy's field reports will greatly exaggerate your numbers!

Bring full firepower to bear on extra-hard targets with devastating one-two combos! Hard cover no longer diminishes the effectiveness of your attacks: destroy hard cover with armor piercing or bunkerbuster warheads and follow up with antipersonnel punishment!
With special warheads you can even disable active protection systems and with two cannon at your disposal it takes no time to fire the second K.O. shot!
Magazine capacity 25 shells per cannon.

Highly advanced gunsight optics provide high-resolution thermal imaging! Onboard ballistics computers feed real-time data to the gunner's screen, ensuring pinpoint accuracy at maximum range!

A warhead for every situation! Tandem charge, bunkerbuster, sabot, high explosive, canister, shaped-charge, thermobaric and semi-guided munitions are available.

Commander's optics and antipersonnel weapons in a high-sitting turret guarantees maximum situational awareness and 360° close protection against enemy infantry!
40mm grenade machinegun and 12,7mm heavy machinegun provide both indirect and direct fire against infantry!

Low-sitting hull provides inceased armor strenght per square inch and a smaller target to the enemy! K2's low profile is easy to hide for ambush operations! With the dozer blade you can dig the K2 into a solid position and with the easily accessible camouflage netting you can vanish out of sight in no time! Several camouflage hardpoints placed along the hull make the use of vegetation and shape-disrupting implements easy and quick! The enemy'll never know what hit them!

Optional components include:
Slat armor for engine air intake and exhaust! Grenades, improvised handheld munitions and handheld launchers won't stop you, even aimed at the weakest part of the K2! Our high-quality slat armor additionally works as a Faraday cage and can even dissipate some energy-based attacks!
Extra armor modules! If you're expecting trouble, easy-to-install add-on armor can increase your odds of survival almost exponentially (warranty of suspension system and engine void if add-on weight exceeds specifications)!
Advanced drive optics! Replace the driver's standard viewport with an advanced armored camera module and high-defition displays! Greatly increases your driver's field of view and safety!
Commander's turret can be replaced by:
Advanced laser targeting system, for use with both guided munitions for the 150mm recoilless cannon and artillery, air or orbital strikes!
Advanced command-and-control equipment, for increased communications capacity and higher-scale situational awareness. Ideal for the fighting field commander!
Interchangeable turret and mounting for 25mm, 30mm and 40mm chainguns (weapons sold separately), for the times when you just need more gun! As an added bonus, without the turret housing the standardized mounting can be used with many different existing as well as future prototype systems!

Congratulations Roun-Disbess Technologies! your tank design has excelled beyond all others through our military testing!

indeed, mass production of Arbelests will begin immediately!

the Solar Militia is honored to to have you aboard

<--
An Arbalest support tank, implementing it's dragonfly drone to assist a Guardian artillery tank.


Reason's why chosen:
- Replaces and exceeds the capabilities of the unappealing and poorly designed Dune Tower

- simple effective visual design, and a cool catchy name

- fits well into the Solar vehicles themes, yet is clearly distinguishable from the existing vehicles

- provides now essential support to existing vehicles, and will no doubt prove a huge asset against the Astranian menace.

the runner up announcement will be posted either later today or tomorrow

-design and function doesn't mesh well with existing Solar strategies

3rd Place:SUA-MT
>>349312
Positive features:
-Tri-barrel is pretty badass and supports Solar themes
-overall design is incredibly appealing visually
Reasons not chosen:
-role conflicts with existing Guardian Tank
-"Jack of all trades" Methodology implies either unbelievabilty, or that is generally the tank will not excel at any task.

4th place:FU-70 Vextus
>>349307
Positive features:
-subterranean warfare is a neat and interesting direction for Solar technology to head in
-a safe way to transport troops makes it a viable weapon of war
Reasons not chosen
-bland over all visual concept
-unable to support other solar vehicles/ too much of a solo unit

None of these "runner ups" are winners, and thus will not be used in my quests, but this may not always be the case! there may come a time where the Solars need warmachines once more and these runner ups are all likely to be chosen with out contest!

Figure 1: the dummy turrent. Able to turn 360 degrees and aim up 45 degrees. Able to equip AA, Anti infantry, anti tank and artillery cannons.
The turret itself is suited with a dummy soldier to let the enemy think they can take out the gunner, and saves lives on not having to actually risk men in these cannons. The Dummy is suited with a few sensor to indicate direct hits. Should the dummy "die", the gunner underground can pretend the gun is disabled, when the enemy advances past it without destroying it, perhaps wanting to salvage the metal, the gunner can turn the turret around and open fire in the back of our enemies. The shield can provide cover for allies and makes it harder for the enemy to see if they hit the dummy or not. The bunker itself also fits as an exit from a possible tunnel network. As long as the tunnel isnt discovered, it can continue to serve as a route for scouts to use to get behind enemy lines. The tunnel itself would be suited with explosives in the case of an emergency.
Possibly it would allow the turret to be hidden underground aswell.


Figure 2: AP round barrage. The device is straight forward, a box of bullets, each row fired with a small electric shock from the battery underneath it. the rounds would be scattered randomly at an angle of 0 to 90 degrees to cause concentrated or spread damage, deppendng on who sets it off. the rounds are filled with lead in such a way that a stream of molten lead punches through armor upon impact. Tanks are usually less armored at the bottem since theyre hard to reach, and robots can only have so much armor on them. The beauty is that every machine only needs 1 fucked up gear or engine piece for it to cease working entirely. Disabling or destroying the insides without risking your men.
The upper design is a longer square, almost entirely a battery. Designed to send out a jamming signal, a magnetic field to fuck with electronics and possibly shields, or a single EMP before the battery is depleted. Particularly useful for an ambush or to fuck up the coordination of enemy reinforcements, making them arrive late. Both are able to be detonated remotely or by proximity. Deppending on what the soldier wants with them.


figure 3: pretty straight forward, a backpack with a shield or stealth field generator meant to protect the whole squard. Its not as advanced as the enemy's, so its larger. To compensate, most of it is a power source meant to make up for the less elegant design.

Hell, why not

Introducing the next step in Solar desperation engineering, the 'Psycho' Aerial Infantry Rocket System!

The sheer firepower our enemies field is forcing us to rethink the way we make war. Simply throwing armies into the meatgrinder is simply not an efficient tactic anymore.

The Psycho System allows infantry to gain great mobility over the battlefield, allowing them to outmaneuver opponents and choose to avoid attacks rather than hide behind cover or hope their armor stands up to enemy firepower.

The 'Maniac' jetpack, the cornerstone of the system, allows bursts of mostly-controllable flight for periods up to thirty seconds, before needing to recharge. A good Psycho soldier can be an extremely difficult target to hit. Compared to most other crazy-noisy aircraft, the 'Maniac' jetpack is relatively quiet and stealthy, allowing highly mobile sneak attacks to be conducted.

The second part of the system is the 'Derange' jamming antenna, which allows soldiers to confuse lesser enemy scanners and avoid taking damage from many auto-tracking weapons.

The final bit of the Psycho system is the 'Frenzy' balance boots. These boots allow soldiers to land safely (most of the time), even if they are moving into the ground at a high velocity. They also have a toggle-able sticky sole that allows soldiers to walk on ceilings and walls with ease. For the bolder Psycho soldiers, it is possible to use these boots to stomp on an unsuspecting enemy from above, providing temporary protection against shields and releasing enough concussive force to break a man's spine.

(Feel free to change the name if you think it doesn't fit, an alternative I was thinking of would be the 'Jackdaw')

Fig I: Just because a single hit from a furre will cripple you for life, if you're lucky. That's no excuse to stop fighting! this new stimulus, carried by every soldier, contains a new drug. Designs to sedate the pain more than morphine, without causing the dull and uncoordinative behavious morphine does. This will keep your men fighting even if they're missing their bottem half.

Fig II: An army marches on its stomach. And without food your army is useless. This baggy is designed to use any kind of water in the field, no matter how filthy, and filter out the paracites and rubbish with a thin filter inside of the bag. The water will then fall into highly concentrated dust containing all the nutrition your men need, aswell as some concentrated taste dusts. Pour the water in, poke a hole in it, bon appetit.

Fig III: worn by either officers of highly guarded tech specialists, this pack is essentially a nuclear reactor strapped to someone's chest. It's used by officers in case shit REALLY hits the fan, and allows a base to self destuct, sparing men from a painful death or keeping whatever secrets the base has, secret. Used by tech specialists to supply emergency power to vital parts of the military if the normal source fails.

Fig IV: A helmet with a visor on it, how original. Purely meant to increase the accuracy for your men's weapons by calculating bullet drop and air direction and speed for the soldier, and showing them a trajectory of the projectile should he fire now. Also comes with a zoom and screenshot function. plays most audio formats but Avi.

Fig V: Why risk you men to begin with? Basicly a remote control gun with a camera. Strap on any gun you like, fire it from a safe distance and never risk losing your men.

Fig VI: In case of an ambush, retreat, or just to fuck with the enemy's head, leave behind a holo projector in the bushes, in a tree, half burried in the ground, and project images of yourself preforming random, prerecorded acts. Anything from pretending to take cover to mooning your foes. Perfect for disorientating the enemy or seeing if any foes are nearby by sending a hologram scout ahead.

Fig VII: A Microwave cannon. Fairly self explanitory.

Fig VIII: A grenade, but not just any grenade: Design to spew out smoke, poisonous gas, radiation, oil, or anything the soldiers can think of to force into the grenade. Just twist the top to let an arrow point to the desired gas and remove the pin and throw. The advantage is that instead of carrying around 3 tear gas grenades, 3 smoke grenades and 3 radiation grenades, you can just carry 9 grenades without being bound to specific situations where one grenade would be useless, and you'd run out of the others.


Fig IX: A new chemical, almost identical to water and very hard to pick up on sensors. The pistols that comes with it is meant for squad leaders and commanders. The chemical is either thrown in a body of water or plentifully spread over the field, when fired upon by the pistol it will detonate by setting off the hyrodgen and ogyxhen particals present in water. This creates a chain reaction in bodies of water, resulting in the entire body detonating. Warning: do not use on oceans.

Fig X: Very big and very heavy, but it might be worth it. This is a heat cannon. Designed to force the oil inside of a robot to combust and render the machine useless. Additionally it can fry someone in a second, but it consumes energy faster than a neckbeard consumes gaming fuel. The actual blast of fire is very concentrated, but luckily for us heat spreads fairly easily when it hits the target. Some reports state they can make cheaper robots plain out melt instead.

It seems like it would dilute in water. Why not make the idea more general, and have a liquid, hard to detect explosive that you can lay a puddle of and then shoot as an explosive trap? The Astranians will have even more fear of water!

No. 40500 ID: f2abea

>>350299
the chemical only contains the detonative element that sets the chain reaction in motion. essentially any liquid containing hydrogen and oxyghen could be detonated with this. With problem with larger bodies of water would be to hit the detonative part of the liquid before it disolves too much to set the chain reaction in motion.

I think you are all missing a very important point by focusing on the grander and impersonal scales.
No matter how large an army, it is and always will be a collection of individuals. If you tend to those individuals, you tend to the army as a whole. You have to start at the most grassroots level.

That is why I have taken the initiative and designed new military uniforms for all troops. It offers maneuverability, freedom of motion, high visibility to friendly troops to avoid friendly fire, impenetrable camouflage in a beach and/or spring break environment, and of course, a guaranteed and significant morale boost for at least 50% of all troops. Morale is one thing technology can never overcome entirely and it is as valuable a commodity as any in a modern or postmodern army.

Ladies and gentlemen, behold the future face of -- wait, this is for the SOLAR army?

Fig I: Cold Suit, this suit is designed to keep the soldier wearing it nice and cool, while keeping the outside of the suit the same temprature as the rest of the envirement. It comes with a small box one wears on their belt. And it monitors and regulates the tempratures of the suit. Effective for avoiding scanners, and concidering how thing it is, a normal uniform or camo can be worn over it, effectively turning your soldier invisible to the enemy.

Fig II: The Chest High Wall, designed to provide cover to your men in the field, its a limited force field. not as mobile or compact as that for the furres, but its able to bring up a shield that can stop a number of powerful blasts, but without additional power supplies, will not last for more than an hour.
Its possible to hook up the power package for officers and tech specialists to this device, allowing the field to expand and absorb more damage. Perfect for keeping the enemy out of vital locations of your base. For the shield to be taken down when hooked up, it will take the same amount of power the reactor can provide for it to be taken down. Very situational.

Fig III: The breathing mask. a simple and straight forward invention, usually hooked up to a container of compressed air, this is mainly used for snipers and scouts in the field who have to remain (mostly) burried for an extended period of time. It allows them to make up for the lesser amount of air they'd be getting.
It also works as a filter, filtering out common poisons, dusts and other hazardous material. But don't expect it to stop biological weapons or radiation or such.

Fig IV: the breathing pack designed for Fig III

Fig V: The Camo Cloak, it comes with a small package like the cold suit does, it's designed to adapt to the surroundings, adapting the pigment in the material to blend in perfectly. At first sight even the keenest of eye will not notice this cloak is about, but it wont hold up well if someone bumps into it, or knows to look for it while getting close to it.
Effectively it's a camo suit that adopts to the envirement youre in. It would allow you to turn invisible if it didnt need time to calculate the surroundings and make an appropriate pattern on itself.

Fig VI: The dispenser; designed to blow water with high pressure in a cloud, this rifle-mounted cannon is meant to disable shields. Although it has a limited range, it has a large area of effect and can take out the shields of a squad in a single blast. of course it comes with a heavy package with compressed water in it. It can also function to carry around water for the troops, or other desired fluids.
The nuzzle can be adapted to fire a concentrated stream of fluids. should you want to use it to spray other liquids somewhere (napalm, the water explosive, etc)

Fig VII: the uni-jammer. Designed to counter a cancelling effect to any source of scanning known to mankind. Even light, kind of.
It makes everyhing in a certain radius around it virtually invisible for any kind of detecting technolgy, radar, sonar, it jams communication etc.
This device shuts down everything. You can use it to keep the enemy from scanning you, or hide it under an enemy base to completely fuck with all of their communication networks.

Congratulations Orison Industrial Interests! your infantry support design has excelled beyond all others through our military testing!

though we were unable to fully meet the required lighter material, we managed to boosted the suits power to more then compensate, combined with light armor plating the suit enhances speed and reflexes but endurance and strength as well!

Variants:

I: standard pneumatic spike rifle equipped trooper

II: Trooper with flamethrower rifle variant for added firepower in close quarters

III: heavily armored Gauntlet Equipped trooper (despite discouragement from the development team many of the troopers equipped with what they have dubbed "superman suits" have insisted the a "good punchdown" is the best way to bring down Astranian soldiers. these suits have been adjusted to survive 5 seconds of hostile shielding before injury begins.)

thanks everyone for all the awesome designs so far! you've all done great work.

Ok, I gave in to the temptation. Once again, I'm terrible at drawing techy things, so sorry for this looking like it was drawn in the corner of a book when I was 12.

----

This would be the Tracy Foundation Orbit To Surface Carrier, designed to deliver whatever needs delivering to wherever it needs to go! More than simply a glorified freighter (as our competitors would have you believe), the non-atmospheric OTS Carrier is equipped with the finest sensor suites, computers and engines to get it as close to a planet as possible from FTL. The ship is equipped only with defensive turrets, but with the loads it can carry, that's all it needs. Thanks to its modular design, the Carrier can be retrofitted with up to three "bays", or reduced to one or even zero if the eventuality should somehow become necessary.

From the OTS Carrier, the crew can swiftly deploy the OTS dropship, an atmospheric VTOL craft that compensates for its unavoidable weight with the largest engines and power systems you'll see on a sublight ship. Once again, the dropship is lightly armed with gunnery turrets for defensive purposes only, its mission being delivery and retrieval. A modified version of the same systems used to deflect micrometeorites in spacecraft are used to create a displacement "bubble" that prevents drag from unaerodynamic loads, and can even soften projectile weapons fire. The dropship is vulnerable when trying to reach escape velocity and return to the Carrier, so it is best accompanied by escort craft - most of which the Carrier can also deliver into combat, along with whatever tanks, aquatic craft, mobile emplacements and troop transport that may be carried by the dropship, which can be easily and swiftly modified to securely carry almost anything up to its own size. It can also carry other aircraft, deliver and retrieve cargo and, of course, drop bombs.

Speaking of massive destruction, the OTS Carrier itself can be equipped with the Heaven's Thunder module, dropping "spears" of dense supermassive material directly from orbit; without any form of internal power, these weapons are hard to detect, hard to stop and impact with kinetic force equivalent to more sophisticated WMDs. The proverbial "big rock" is still a viable weapon of war on any planet with sufficient gravity... though they are, of course, not free.

The massive size and roaring vectored turbofans of the Pernach in motion belie its hybrid airship nature, for much of its volume is dedicated to the lifting gas pockets which allow it to remain on-station for extended periods. While armed with a pair of Guardian turrets repurposed to provide crude anti-air and missile-CIWS capability, her most potent contribution is as a AEW&C platform and airstrike staging ground. A rear-mounted radome and suite of complementary sensors, able to draw power from solar panels covering her top surface, allows the Pernach excellent battlefield surveillance capability and allows her to effectively direct limited Solar forces to make the most of vulnerabilities opened by poor Astranian discipline and short-term shielding technology. Where ground forces are unable to strike in time, a small compliment of Threshal fighter/bombers can be launched from the internal flight deck. Launching at below stall speed and requiring a sharp initial dive to compensate, only the most skilled yet foolhardy of Solar pilots suit the role---and only the downright insane are willing to attempt what is required to be one of the most precise landings in aviation.

Sounds like pre-Astronomicon 40K Warp Travel.
Um, do you have a proper discussion thread where I can ask about these things?

C-57 'Avalanche' Medium Transport VTOL
Manufacturer: Renegade Interrupt

A fast, affordable transport VTOL allowing for rapid insertion and extraction of ground forces. Able to deploy from space to a planet, with the help of jettisoning heat shields over the fans, but not the other way around.

Simple, robust engines allow it to withstand serious damage from debris and fragmentation. Each nacelle can survive the complete loss of main fan without compromising engine compression, allowing for emergency thrust and a powered landing.
