Andoran Coalition Drones
About this creation
Well people, I'm back with more LEGO fantasticalness. Thiats not a word you say? well, your FACE isn't a word, yeah... I win.

Anyhoo, lets get onto the MOC.


The four main drones used by the Andoran Union today offer support in various roles from airborne attack to deadly-accurate and stealthy targeted explosions. All four can be remote controlled or completely autonomous, but we don't like using that mode. They tend to bump into things, repeatedly. And this one time a Mule ran into an oil tan-, we're still working out the kinks...


The first of the four main drones is the GAD-01 "Drake" or Ground Assault Drone. Equipped with a rotating .70 caliber turret mounted on the top of the drone, it offers some serious firepower and protection on the field. Every active infantry unit is expected to be equipped with a Drake by 2705.


The Drake utilizes DSAAP (Dragon Scale Advanced Armor Plating) to protect its internal hardware, ammunition and serve as cover for troops when needed. Believe it or not, every sigle bit of free space inside of the GAD was used to house ammunition, over 3,600,000 rounds. I guess they didn't wan't to run out, ever, for all of eternity...


It has tail lights so it doesn't accidentally run over things, like people and animals, and people... Its there mainly for people protection. Early field testing versions didn't have rear lights or a backup camera and, well... yeah, you get the idea.


This is the LBD-01 "Mule" or Load Bearing Drone, essentially a turret-less Drake, but its made less slopealicious (every rapper in the history of all the history, ever, would say that that's a word. Don't argue with me) for maximum internal storage room and to give it the most surface area possible to tie down equipment.


The Mule also uses DSAAP armor technology, so it too can be used as a very expensive rolling body shield. Also, I couldn't find another way to make the camera to my satisfaction so if anyone thinks placing that loop piece thing there like that is cheating, go eat a giraffe.


I didn't put in any access hatches because the few pieces I have that are white and work like that are too big, so you'll have to imagine that there is an access hatch in the back here. Yes, I know its hard, but try, for the sake of all that is good and fluffy, try.


The smaller, sexier drone pictured above is the RDD-01 "Wolverine" or Remote Detonation Drone. Its armored like hell and packed with enough explosives to level a building (in most cases, its possible to remove some). The sole function of this little guy is to locate a target, then blow up. Simple, as, noodles.


Its equipped with a proportionally large camera because a larger camera can get better definition video and night vision, and I can't make any smaller camera looking thing out of LEGO. Believe me, I tried.


A keyboard for entering a destination instead of remote controlling it or letting it go autonomous comes standard with every drone. A big-ass warning light also comes standard just in case you screw something up.


An Andoran militiaman typing in the command to drive 70 feet then blow up, he just forgot to tell it to drive FORWARD 30 feet.


Last but not least is the AAD-01 "Raven" or Air Assault Drone. It is a twin-rotor, infantry-killing beast straight out of hell. Out of the four I built, I personally like this one the best. It comes equipped with 4 .50 caliber turrets and two rocket pods containing 16 hellfire missiles and 4 heat-seekers each, overkill by any other name.


The twin-rotors were a challenge, but I think I managed to fit them on in a graceful and stylish way.


I love the sleek way I managed to work on the .50 caliber guns, also a challenge.


Just a close-up of the weapon systems to be positive I captured everything. And I don't believe I did, I have the nagging feeling I forgot something...


And the final descriptive picture, the tail section, which is my least favorite part of the drone. If I could go back and rework it I would, but sadly I already cannibalized it.



Well people, that's it for today, More pictures and typing than I'm used to, but I got it done nonetheless.

With that, I'm off.

I was joking about the problems with autonomy in the robots, about them bumping into things and running people over. Even the reaper drone in ral life is controlled by an operator but still, great models.

Quoting Matthew McCall What? Robots are hardly useless, UAVS such as the Reaper have proven themselves a valuable asset for years. Besides, if a country couldn't handle logistics for it's robots, it would be simliarly incapable for it's other equipment as robots have nothing unique about them from a logistics point of view.
when did I say robots were useless?

700 years in the future and robots are still as useless as ever! I think the reason it is taking so long to give a drone to each infantry unit is that the ammo factories cannot keep up. (:

All these creations are very nice and all, but seriously, 3,600,000 .70 cal rounds in that tiny drone? Was this a joke? There is no way that could all fit in there, and I'll prove it. For starters, we will assume that each bullet weighs 60 grams, which is what you would exspect from rounds this size. We then multiply by 3,600,000 to get 216,000,000 grams, which equals 476,198.486 pounds. This then turns out to convert to 216 metric tons. To put this in perspective, the Abrams tank weighs 62 metric tons. Surely you can see the problem here? XD Anyway, agian, great work. :)

Very nice! I find the Drake awkward tall however :/ And wonder how so many missiles fit in a rocket pod.

Nice lookin drone you have. I like the drakes, one for infantry support and one for carring supplies.
