SS-56 RC Labor Drone by Wrathofautumn SS-56 RC Labor Drone by Wrathofautumn
The 56th model of the Submission Class Labor drone, these drones are state of the art deforesting machines. They're diamond edged chainsaws allow them to cut through dense wood, and a high pressured water cannon allows disposing of some unwanted obstacles. It has also seen some use in Myakin, with cousin drones using cutting tools for extracting fuel crystals and gemstones.

It is remote controlled by the supervisor of a labor crew with a visual simulator, making the pilot operate it as if they were the robot themselves. Operating on a blue ray reciever, it's got a 50 mile radius and a battery life of 24 hours. However, physical objects can block the signal from being received like vegetation and whatnot, resulting in system shutdown. Hence, Kannist and berserker crewmembers are often required to escort these machines by clearing vegetation away to get a clear signal, while risking their own lives in the harsh ecosytems of the Ten Empires.

The robots see with a tv imaging, but it can also use night vision for working at night to increase it's productivity. It's legs also extend on pistons allowing it to cross some dangerous hazards and risk damage to itself. The body can also rotate a full 360 degrees around the hips, letting it work while it moves and keep an eye out for danger. Though there's little need, the drone can defend itself, if necessary.

I think you could use a reference from the game Command and Conquer 3 Kane's Wrath. There's a robot design you can use from the Brotherhood of Nod faction, the Redeemer. (See: [link]) Just need some improvisations, and all is set... :)

Kind of harking back to ye olden' days of robot design it seems like.

The simpler designs were so awesome! :D Actually a lot of these models are dated. They were put into storage with the presence of Mutant Zero around. Now that he's dead(in the future), they can be active again!
