Because so much is riding on THEIR tires... err, drones.

This thread is for posting anything we learn about the Utopian drones, such as tactics, weapons configurations, etc.... short of having an actual record sheet.

From the discussion Detro has with Scildy over Ambithera, in which he diverts the conversation to learn more about Waeps drones:

[23:58:17] <Farrell> <Detro> So, Ambithera also services your other drones?
[23:58:41] <Sajioshi> Scildfreja> Yes.
[00:00:33] <Farrell> <Detro> ::has a renewed interest in Ambithera:: So that would include the various non-combat and combat systems. Interesting. Even the ones of that little weapons drone?
[00:03:02] <Sajioshi> Scildfreja> ::She pauses a moment:: It is the supply and repair auto.
[00:06:44] <Farrell> <Detro> Huh. That's pretty slick. But then again, I guess it's easier to have that setup at that size, rather than our gears. ::Frowns:: That said, you couldn't possibly pack much useful firepower into a drone frame as small as that "Weaps" thing. ::mispronounces it::
[00:10:47] <Sajioshi> Scildfreja> ::Seems a touch put off by the comment:: Weaps (pronounced almost like "whips") is a good light platform.
[00:12:06] * Kalthak is now known as Brad
[00:12:51] <Farrell> <Detro> ::shrugs:: You say it is, but you haven't seen much of the drones we have. And I know nothing about what it carries to compare ours to, to be honest.
[00:15:56] <Sajioshi> Scildfreja> ::She crosses her arms and leans close to the Ambithera:: Any weapon can kill anything if used right.
[00:18:41] <Farrell> <Detro> ...if the situation allows for it, yes. A short range weapon is useless when a drone can't get close after all.
[00:19:45] <Sajioshi> Scildfreja> If you can't get close, you're doing it wrong.
[00:20:27] <Farrell> <Detro> Well, with a drone like Waeps ::pronounces it right this time::, I suppose getting close isn't much of a problem.
[00:23:06] <Farrell> <Detro> Of course, that also means that it's much easier to get out of its range though, if you're fast enough.
[00:28:40] <Sajioshi> Scildfreja> Waeps are never alone.
[00:31:20] <Farrell> <Detro> ::grins:: Pack tactics?
[00:33:27] <Sajioshi> Scildfreja> ::pauses to think it over a moment, and replies hesitantly:: yes.
[00:35:02] <Farrell> <Detro> ::nods:: Best way to use something that's got a somewhat decent short range weapon. Keeps the target busy until you can bring in the heavier equipment.
[00:36:17] <Sajioshi> Scildfreja> We don't have anything heavy. We almost didn't bring the Waeps.
[00:37:34] <Farrell> ((They ARE the smallest of the drones we've seen, right?)
[00:38:09] <Sajioshi> ((Spidhras are smaller, Sleca is larger))
[00:39:14] <Farrell> <Detro> So why did you? If you don't mind me asking.
[00:41:05] <Sajioshi> Scildfreja> ::She pauses a moment, apparently really thinking the answer over - or at least how to say so without giving away too much:: To protect the Ambithera if we had to leave it for an operation.
[00:44:49] <Farrell> <Detro> Ah. Must be good at dealing with soft targets then.
[00:45:21] <Sajioshi> Scildfreja> ::shrugs:: If that's how it's armed.
