Pretty close to the standard TS version, actually, I think, though with changes to e. The Ultra-Tech versions have DR listed, which makes sense. Just ultrattech over to e The combination of heavy armour, humanoid form, and above all raw strength gives it a bit of a skiffy feel, in my opinion, though I guess one could convert the TL9 or 10 versions to cybershell templates if one wanted that sort of combat machine in a game.
Fluid Projectors Obviously, ordinary sprays are perfectly feasible – as in, really just extant TL6 technology.
Pocket antimatter reactors power vehicles, and spaceships and cities run on total conversion of mass to energy. Non-executed errata, primarily, it seems. I’d guess that searches using this would require a warrant or just cause in most jurisdictions.
