Switchblade Drones

Recommended Posts

Saw some articles indicating that the US is supplying Switchblade kamikaze drones to Ukraine:

 

AeroVironment Switchblade - Wikipedia

 

The 300 has a warhead equivalent to a 40mm grenade.  The 600 has an anti-tank warhead comparable to a Javelin ATGM.

 

So throw those values in, write up a vehicle with the stated speed/range characteristics and guidance systems, maybe up the DCV to represent how difficult it is to intercept, and you've got a HERO System writeup! 😃

That works too.  But it's definitely not a half-Phase attack, at least at longer ranges (98/115mph = 44/51 meters per Segment), it's remotely controlled, and there's a physical structure that can be damaged or destroyed.  Once you add Limitations to reflect those things, IMO it's easier to do a vehicle write-up.  But that's just my preference.

Vehicles are something you expect to use multiple times though. These are just attacks .

I've written up missiles for Star Hero, as well as Autonomous Kill Vehicles. They're both single use.

I shutter thinking about the VIPER equivalent weapon systems.

 

My version of SAT, in my mind, had some drone expert agents using drones as indirect fire weapons (if I would put them to paper, they would be RKA, Indirect, Physical Incarnations along with Clairvoyance abilities).
