AG 09 - PM01 "Indra" Psi-Mech . The first Mech requiring a pilot with psychic abilities! Bionicle parts are less than 25% . Behold Indra, the God of War!
The current zenith of Archeogenis bio-research, the Indra is the first BioMech to fully interface fith a Psychic operative.
This BioMech features both strong plating and extensive power shielding. Moreover, the extensive Psi-Array throughout his body projecs an additional defensive field controlled by the pilot's mind.
The model's agility makes it perfect for martial arts practice!
About 17 meters tall (40 cm fig scale) horns excluded.
One of the principal weapons designed for the Indra is the Plasma Trident.
This hybrid weapon features anti-plate vibroblades and a Plasma Projector.
Although the Plasma Projector is already a powerful weapon, fully capable of melting most platings...
... when the plasma flux is overloaded by the pilot's powers, its effect becomes utterly devastating (side effects of this procedure include overheating, malfunction or even the explosion of the projector's lens).
"I am the Overcomer!"
Perhaps the most dreadful weapon used by the Indra is the QUAD GATLING GUN.
16.000 rpm, effective at 2.8 km (3.6 km when the weapon is overloaded by the pilot's power), this lady fires ammo as long as your forearm, and is classified as a weapon of mass destruction. Also called "The Dark Lady", or TDL Gun.
You may or may not notice the Bionite shield on this right arm.(Bionite is a condensed layer of inhert Ancient cells)
The most astounding fact is that the immense physical prowess of this BioMech still allows a certain level of agility, even when carrying the TDL and its full ammo supply.
This was immediately seen during some early tests...
...when the Indra proved to be able to lift a fully armed BM04 with ONE ARM!
(No supports of photo tricks for this one! It's just as you see it)
The cockpit inside the chest hosts only the most stable Psi-Elites, yet the Indra's own AI is fully capable of taking on even some of the most challenging missions.
In fact, the pilot's main job is simply to power up the Indra's weapons, defenses and regeneration when and where necessary, quite like an additional generator.
Cockpit open. You may notice the 2 "small" gatlings un the sides.
Usually, however, the pilot (Here we see Cap Fax) and the Mech work together to better accomplish their task.
The pilot can also control remotely an unmanned support glider (yes, it's the same you saw balancing on my thumb in the Evinrude's page).
See how it balances on Indra's finger :)
Although the Indra features 4 wings, it can't fly.
The wings gather heat and EM radiation from the environment to recharge the PM01's Core Cells, just like the Plasma Breather equipped by some BM06 "Daimajin" models.
The PM01 "Indra" can perform a devastating final attack, called the "Threshold"
The pilot's full power is unleashed and amplified by the full Psi-Array in a 360° burst, annihilating almost anything at medium range in a searing field of white light.
Alas, this technique claims the pilot's life, when used.
The full MOC. Although it looks quite Bionicle, more than 75% of its mass is System and Technic.
I hope you took the time to go through it, and that you enjoyed the tour.
NOTE: Yes, part of the design is inspired by Ganmen from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann :)
NOTE2: Yes, the Quad Gatling Gun is as tall as a buiding from a good City layout :)
