Part of the UGov faction of the 22nd Century CyberAgent universe.
About this creation
In the near future genetic engineering and cybernetic replacement surgery will become common place. But by the 22nd Century the combined governments of Earth will become dominated by a biased government that sees these "Human+" as an inferior race to be removed from society.
The UGov faction is a "pure-breed" human political movement that as taken control of Earth and threatens to start a war with the increasingly militant Human+ Alliance.
The CyberAgency, recognising the mutual threat of terrorist mutants and Cyborgs, and the heavy handed tactics of the xenophobic UGov, have created a new team of heroes to maintain peace in this volatile environment.
Codename: Nighter (Night/Hunter)
Serial number: UH121017/a
Faction: UGov (Unified Earth Government)
Function: Special Ops
Description: The Nighter was developed after it was recognised the earlier UB series Mecha were ineffective against CyberAgency counter defence tactics. The Nighter uses the same neurostatic technology, but has increased responsiveness. With a much more humanoid physique, the operator can coordinate much more effectively.
Nighter units are used mostly for stealth missions, taking full advantage of their black, sound cancelling, paint work to sneak up on CyberAgents engaged in countering rampaging nocturnal mutants.
Armed with twin turbobeams.
They have minimal stealth technology, providing invisibility from radar, echo-location and visual sensors in low light.
Weakness: The power supply for the neurostatic controls and drive system puts out a lot of heat, this makes them visible in the infra-red spectrum even in complete darkness.
I neglected to mention, while the joint system is now extensively used (who doesn't use T-joints) a big nod needs to go to fortenoir for the knee design and I did take inspiration from him for the foot design.
A heavier armed variant does exist, but I'm still experimenting with how to display it to the best advantage.
