IDC Sukomee Personal Assault Platform
The Sukomee is a main force heavy weapon
platform worn by a single user. It is essentially a strap-on tank,
complete with a powered exoskeleton and personal combat armour,
integrated weapons platform, and communication and
It is a reconfigurable system designed around modular parts
which can be swapped out to match the suit to a particular
environment and to facilitate easy upgrades. The Sukomee is
generally used for heavy assault and commando operations, or
to enable heavy armed, situationally aware field commanders.
The suit is capable of mounting heavy, permanent weapons on
its shoulders, hips, and arms. It allows the use of more
traditional handheld weapons which can be slung on the hip
when not in use. It allows back-mounted packs that provide
functions from ammunition and small cargo storage to life
support. Back mounted packs are generally configured to cover
the whole back, half back, or quarter back.
||Chosen to maximize the speed and manoeuverability of the suit, a hardened polymer shell is fixed to the Sukomee exoskeleton.
Several layers of Metaleather are composited on the inside of the plates to further protect the wearer under duress without adding
||Composite polysteel plates are fixed to the Sukomee exoskeleton, creating a thick, heavy layer of incredible pretection for the wearer.
Layers of fabristeel under the plates provide further protection and reinforcement. The protective quality of the armour is quite
impressive, at the expensive of overall speed and manoeverability for the suit.
||The Sukomee physical control scheme, using pressure
sensors and the Sukomee biocomputer to interpret the
wearer's movements and translates them to the suit using
a "passive detection, logarithmic physical
multiplication". The system provides an incredibly wide
range of motion from delicate to decimating. Twitch also
a soft user interface for the suit. The
Sukomee integrates a sensor network that feeds
information to the wearer, including improved vision and
hearing, and feeding a wide range of information a
heads-up display. The user interface provides target
identification, field maps and information, personal
condition and status information, and attaches the user
to the Kharko communication and intelligence net. The
interface interprets the body and facial gestures of the
user to control the suit and its systems.
||A backpack containing life support to allow long
periods in the field without removing the armour. The
backpacks allow the injection to the wearer of a variety
of substances including meal replacement, stimulants,
and medical chemicals like antivenins and painkillers.
The Twitch sensor system monitors the condition of the
wearer and administers substances appropriately.
Extension packs are designed in quarter back modules.
Integratable Weapons Platforms
|Imperial Rocket Launcher
6-chamber shoulder-mounted rocket pod that integrates
with the Imperial Design Corps' Sukomee personal assault
platform. The bulk of the pod encourages that they be
mounted on both shoulders to aid in balance and symmetry.
The reloading process is exceptionally awkward and
requires removal from the Sukomee and partial disassembly
of the pod. The rocket load-out
is, therefore, configured before battle.
Each of the 6 pods can hold a unique rocket type and can
be fired in combination or sequence. The aiming and firing
sequence is controlled by electronic interface with the
Sukomee sensor net and is initiated by the wearer.
|Plasma Pack||Fuel source||Plasma containment unit and
fuel source for all Sukomee compatible plasma-based weapons. Includes
electromagnetic plasma containment and a feed mechanisms to deliver the fuel
to the weapons. The weapons themselves will contain the projectile that "bundles"
the plasma for delivery. The packs mount on the Sukomee's back and come in 3
sizes: quarter, half, and full.
||Shoulder mounted breaker cannon. Intended
for use against larger targets like vehicles, buildings,
and for indirect fire, the Tortene is not exceptionally
accurate. It does, however, pack quite a punch for its
short size and relatively light weight. It holds 20 heavy
pellets. The pellets are contained in a clip that is
reasonably easy to reload, though the shoulder location
makes it almost impossible for the wearer themselves to
||The Sherojne is a 4-barrell, short
carbine style breaker that can be used one or two handed
and can be holstered at the hip. Plasma is fed from a
standard Sukomee plasma backpack through a plasma conduit
tube. The Sherojne is reasonably easy for the wearer to
reload and accepts clips of either 20 larger pellets,
intended for large explosive effect, or 60 small pellets,
capable of peppering an area with small explosions.
