AICDs (Artificially Intelligent Combat Drones) are the newest innovation from Neuron Technologies Unlimited. With the wild success of the Clockwork that now do maintenance around Nova Praetoria, engineers worked tirelessly to produce a new breed of self-reliant robot whose expressed function was solely combat-oriented.
Initial prototypes proved too easy to manipulate. v2.0, however, features a special microchip installed in their "brain" which is designed to eliminate this error. The microchips are activated remotely by the user, who can turn the drone off, turn it on, alter its primary directive and erase its hard drive from a distance of five hundred yards. AICDs who stray too far from their controls automatically shut down and emit a repetitious signal, designating their coordinates anywhere on the globe to their user via GPS satellites.
With the new features implemented, the AICDs are now safe to program and release upon Nova Praetoria as a bolster to the beleagered PPD forces.
