MEI ACR32 Wolfhound Combat Dro by Jepray MEI ACR32 Wolfhound Combat Dro by Jepray
While remotely-operated drones have proven to be obsolete due to advances in ENWO (Electronic and Network Warfare Operations), semi-sentient AI-driven robots still have a place on the battlefield as a force multiplier. While not as cunning or adaptable as a meat-body soldier, they make excellent front line battlefield combatants and garrison/force protection units.

Very good design. But what is that under his right arm? A rail gun? And what is that on his left shoulder?

Not to disagree with Jeff, but it's not THAT powerful. Here's the writeup from the book, explaining the weapons-

Description: MEI once again proves it has earned the top-slot in robotics with the Wolfhound combat robot. Designed to operate as a front-line and force protection unit, the Wolfhound has the most advanced AI legally allowed. This gives it excellent self-motivation and abstract judgment capacities, allowing these units to operate in the field with minimal supervision.
The Wolfhound is not as adaptable or capable of independent reasoning and problem-solving abilities as a meat-body soldier, but it stands out as head of the class compared to other robots. This is due to a larger CPU allowing for a more intelligent AI (comparable to a class II able to handle up to an Emotive personality) placed in the center chest. While still vulnerable to head-shots, which will destroy the primary sensor node, the CPU is one of the hardest parts of the ‘bot to kill. In addition to its built-in weaponry, the Wolfhound can also carry any small arm or heavy weapon, including those designed for powered armor. While it can use external hand-held vibroblades, it is far more effective with the built-in models.

That thing on it shoulder can blow a hole in the side of a starship... and put out enough power to give most shields a hard time, so yeah it could take out a tank...

I like the multi-camera helmet. It looks very sci-fi-y.
