Borg Cube MK II

SMG Drone added 4 months ago

I had noticed how some players tried to cobble together a cube using electroplates G. I didn't like the looks, I never found a cube where the electroplates would fit well.

I took the challenge onto myself, and I crafted a cube using 12 electroplates G right. And I found out they are designed to fit snugly together.

Under the hood, everything is supported by a cubic frame 6x6x6 of chassis cubes.

On each of the 8 corners of the chassis cube, thrust vector control (TVC) is implemented by three Panther thrusters, pointing in the three different spatial directions, X, Y and Z.

At the center of the cube, four Falcon rudders provide main thrust and yaw steering.

From each of the faces of the frame cube, a weapon support is raised to peek through the center of the electroplates G seams.

The six weapon supports are populated with 6 x Disintegrator SMG's or 5 x Disintegrator SMG's + 1 Nano Constructor.

Lift is provided by a congrous amount of helium cubes. Ballpark number for my drones is always one helium cube per 100 kg of vehicle weight.

Extra thrust is provided cramming as many Lynx thrusters I could behind weapon supports. You end up exceeding 290 mph.

Maneuverability is not top notch, but for that you need to say thank you to Freejam for the horrid stabilization algorithm that comes with the new aerofoils. I found many times, rudders fight TVC for no reason, it seems rudders hate to be sped up.

I picked an alternate black/white surface color because it helps dissimulate shape at a distance.

You can buy Borg Cube MK II at the Factory.
