Designer Notes

The Gargoyle UOV (unmanned observation vehicle) is a small walker drone for Black Talon teams. It is designed to provide forward reconnaissance and observation capabilities, limiting the team's exposure to enemy forces in proximity to an objective. The Gargoyle is a flexible-tread design equipped with stealth systems and an artificial intelligence control system. The extendable treads can adapt themselves to the ground features as well as a Gear's legs, are less complex mechanically and can retract within the body of the drone for easier transport and storage.

The drone can be operated at a range of up to one kilometer via a fiber optic connection, but its greatest strength is the artificial intelligence system. The artificial intelligence system allows the Gargoyle to perform autonomous reconnaissance using its internal operational directives and team-programmed mission commands. The artificial intelligence performs exceptionally well, even hiding and remaining inactive if it decides there is a significant chance of being detected if it moves. The Gargoyle will also make use of cover in conjunction with its small size and stealth system to avoid detection.

Since the Gargoyle is small, light, and equipped with its own stealth system, it can be carried by any Dark series Gear on an unused weapon hardpoint without affecting the performance of the Gear's own stealth system. The onboard system records visible, infrared, and ultraviolet images for fiber optic transmission or playback using a 360° panoramic video system. It also contains a self-destruct device for use if detected or fired upon.
