    Storyline:


    The year 2446 CE

    Mankind and its technology have advanced at an exponential rate, however trivial political, religious and social demands have caused the splintering of former superpowers into smaller nation states, pitting themselves against each in a number of minor conflicts.

    Since 2395 a minimum of 27 conflicts, hostile incursions and border disputes have been raging in various confined areas across the planets surface, sparking a new global economy.
    Covenants of major corporations have banded together in various factions and are now the true international players, feeding the ever increasing demand of new weapons technology.
    The change in style of warfare has rendered weapons of mass destruction virtually useless increasing an appetite for more unconventional weapon systems, specifically the VidaNova Corporations newest developments in the field of creating new species of animals bred for specific purposes.

    The idea behind this new move is too harness the animals natural intelligence, sensory abilities, and ability to traverse difficult terrain. They are currently working on models for civilian implementation, ranging from beasts of burden for remote areas to leisure models as pets. However there have been worrying reports of certain products escaping from captivity, and having unexpected effects on the flora and fauna they interact with, conspiracy theorists place blame on a huge range of subjects, ranging from the Cytarabinoside used in manipulating metabolic pathways in the animals, to mother earth resting control back from humanity to satan himself.
    Some minor political and religious groups are already rallying, trying to bring this series of unnerving events to the public eye, wild rumors and conspiracy theories are already calling this the 8th day of creation.


    Topic for COW:
    Giant Suicide Digger

    A creature made by scientists by mixing genes of existing and extinct animals...there are also some mechanical/technical parts implemented in the predators organism. The predator must be able to be mounted and is carnivore, making him a living and very aggressive killer machine. We need to see something like a saddle, where the hunters can sit on, but you don't need to draw the hunter himself. The creatures full body must be seen.

    concept:
    These creatures are about the size of a cow. They are a genetic cross between beetles and moles, along with unique DNA sequences acting as a genetic bridge for the different DNA strands that constitute the creature's "blueprint". Which also gives them particular fenotipic characteristics, most notably, a very other-wordly appearence. The Giant Suicide Diggers are covered with tough chitin, and they use their frontal appendages for digging.

    "..recently the offshoot Militant wing of ProNature have been luring our suicide diggers into ambushes by wiring up pre-century tanks with EMP field generators. Once the SD arrives they attemp to destroy the SD with a small strike force, limiting the number of possible casualties..."

    concept:
    Creature has the digging abilities of a mole, the seeking abilities of a truffle hunting porker, the tenacity of a badger, and about a ton of high grade 23/34rd century explosives. And it's probably friendly too, til it goes 'boom. The breeders/scientists weren't particularly concerned with keeping it neat and tidy looking, the raw cybernetics are crude and visible. Nothing the creature's overly concerned about since it's probably juiced up on a cocktail of steroids and drugs.

    CODE-NAME: DIGIT
    PROJEKT NUMBER: 2449-78/1a

    PROJECT STATUS: CLOSED
    BUDGET: 100.000 CALI'BOS

    --------------------------
    PROJECT GOALS: BIOENGINEERICAL UPGRADED CREATURE FOR SUICIDE MISSIONS
    SHORT SUMMARY: Our project is successfully finished. We have used a critter called by natives "Kayakas". This blind creature, that can sense electricity, lives under the planet surface. It uses this ability mainly to track down others of its kind. We have discovered that GSD [Giant Suicide Digger] can sense strong source of electric field from over 50 kilometers...
    UPGRADES:
    "Kayakas" AKA "Digit" have very interesting way of procreation. Speciman of this kind looks for strong electricity fields that's generated by "Kayakas'" females ready to procreation. Rest of living organism generates much smaller electric fields, that also can be sensed. When a male and female meet each other, they release genetic materials from their excrescences on their back. We have genetically changed this material to make it explosive, so when the substance is in contact with oxygen, it blows up! We are able to control the power of explosion and also have control what targets we want to destroy.
    ADDITIONAL NOTE:
    Our power stations, bunkers and static field generators have "Anti-Digit" systems. When our security system tracks down presence of GSD it can automatically change the electric field power ratio or even turn it off. In 99% cases this stops the GSD.
    VIDANOVA POLICE NOTE:
    We suspect that this creature was used to attempt on one of the VidaNova leaders.

    concept:
    Giant Suicide Digger aka. Armant 2.0
    VidaNova Corporations has spawned a new breed of atomic bomb, one that lives and breathes and reproduces. The Giant Suicide Digger has been over 150 years in the making since the dawn of the new era when chaos was awoken in the form of Gene Splicing. Man kind had reached a new technological hurdle which it overcame with great pride but disastrous affects. In the year 2275 sector 40.44 of the Colorado Rocky’s breeched it’s overload in the secondary power source resulting in a cataclysmic explosion which left the rocky mountains in dismay. The terrain became impossibly difficult leaving a labyrinth of jagged razor sharp rocks in the aftermath of the incident. VidaNova had begun experimentation on underground genetics of species such as gofer, earthworms, ants and armadillos. Through these experiments giants of the underground were born and reproduced to be used in times of warfare. The dawn of a new era of weaponry had begun, once the Suicide Digger was conceived.
    Here you can see a Suicide Digger in hibernation mode docked at Bay VidaBista 45. These giants are dormant until needed, each containing a surgical implant in it’s brain that will hone in on specific locations through means of magnetic fields. Once it’s destination is secured this giant living time bomb begins its underground journey and it will end with the destruction of whatever lay in its path. Suicide Diggers were created primarily with the genes of Bulldog Ants and Armadillo’s giving the creature a profound amount of natural protection with it’s thick plated body and massive claws and pinchers. The thick shell at birth is injected with a form of liquid explosive which grows as the animal ages and increases in size. A small detonator is installed and without even knowing it’s purpose the creature harbors an atomic bomb in its back.

    concept:
    In a world or war scientists have genetically engineered a new hybrid species designed specifically to annihilate enemy military bases without detection. The rapid tunneling and burrowing capabilities of mammals, engineered with sensory abilities ensure quick, undetected beaches inside enemy lines. However, this alone was not sufficient enough to destroy the entire base. Scientist combined beetle genes to the species which caused the mammal to grow a hard layer on its back which would provide protection from incoming bullets. In the growing months of the GSD explosives among with other remote devices were attached to its back where its hard shell would grow over it. Now an armored, burrower with sensory abilities, armed with explosives is at their disposable. Destruction lies ahead.

    concept:
    Porcus unicornis
    Length: 2,5 meters
    Shoulder height: 2 meters
    Weight: several tons
    The Porcus unicornis, also known as the “Cavecracker”, has a nose in the shape of a pickaxe. With this nose, which structure is comparable with his bone structure, he digs till deep under the ground. If he walks into really hard stone structures in the deepest of the world he likes to use his 70 cm’s long horn on the forehead to smash it apart. This horn is a mixture of the hardest and most solid stones and bones the world has ever known.
    With special sensors on his head the Cavecracker can detect electro magnetic signals and locate strategic hostile positions. When the signals reach a certain amount of intensivity the explosive parts attached on the Cavecracker’s chest inflame and cause total destruction.

    concept:
    RAOPS
    -A raops is about the size of a pickup truck. Its giant armored head is covered in electromagnetic receptors. This trait allowed its ancestors to detect buried food, but it is now specialized to seek out the signals emitted by military targets. And since a raops is engineered to always feel hungry, it reaches its mark fast.
    -A raops' optic nerves are hooked up to the bomb planted on its underside. Though nearly blind, its primitive eyes do detect light and dark, and when it surfaces, the light triggers the explosion of the bomb.
    -Powerful stomach acids are disgorged from its mouth to eat through tough barriers.
    -This creature produces a lubricating slime to line the tunnels it digs. This slime is also highly combustible. So, even if the raops is destroyed by a decoy mine, all of its tunnels will explode with it, breaking apart the structural integrity of the ground beneath the main target.

    GX Plasma Dozer Worm
    The giant plasma dozer worm is a miracle of modern genetic warfare. Measuring in at 55 feet in length and weighing in excess of 10 tons, this behemoth uses its helical arrangement of hind pseudopodia to spin itself through the earth. The drill-like shape of the head and the fiery furnace of a digestive system allow it to bypass all of the toughest obsticles. Ampullae of Lorenzini that have been modified to detect electro-magnetic signals through the earth guide this monster to its target. The GX bombs arrayed underneath the beast's tough clitellum have been connected to these ampullae, and also to our newest encoded GPS system, which makes for precise targeting for the explosion. A computer system with an advanced AI is set to trigger the explosion once the target is reached and all of the safety conditions have been met, ensuring that your newest aquisition does not accidentally blow up your base.
    Vida Nova corporation, bringing you the newest and best genetically enhanced weapons, for those times when you just want to kill your enemies with style.

    concept:
    Mass produced by VidaNova, the genetically engineered and mechanically enhanced Gehenapede is roughly 20 feet long and the upper body stands about 8 feet high. Its combination of drilling appendages and hydrolic powered neck allows easy entrance to military facilities. Each body segment carrying a destructive payload can separate from the main body allowing strategic placement in large complexes. The sensitive filiments on it's "eye" stalks trace electromagnetic signals and retract for protection while boring through rock.

    concept:
    The vulcan worm is no more a real worm than a garden weasel is a real weasel. But, nicknames that follow an obvious function tend to stick. The vulcan worm is a reptillian based vertebrate. Its powerful claws dig. Its eyeless, snapper-turtle head chomps and strains earth through bony gills in its lower jaw. Its serpentine length is covered in rigid blade-like fins that extend from the body and curve counterclockwise.The fins' orientation encourage the beast to travel its burrow in a spiralling motion through the earth, speeding up delivery of the bomb it carries implanted in its head. Genetic engineering and cybernetic implants in the beast's brain stem hieghten the vulcan worm's natural equillibrium allowing it to dig its path without disorientation. The beast is also genetically engineered to be extremely sensitive to temperature and pressure. It digs ferociously and singlemindedly when submerged deep in the cold earth but is extraordinarily docile when exposed to room temperature or above. The open air puts it nearly to sleep.
    The vulcan worm digs its path and surfaces. Upon exposure to the ambient temperature after reaching its destination, its unmovable mass simply lies exhausted and waits for its fate. A variety of detonation devices work well with this program. Bombs set on a timer, by remote, or in the presence of predetermined environmental conditions or electromagnetic frequencies can all be successfully delivered with the vulcan worm.
    The residue left behind after detonation of the vulcan worm bomb resembles first magma, and when cooled, black volcanic rock. On the rare occassions a peripheral victim survives the massive explosion, ground-zero of the vulcan worm's attack is mistaken for a naturally occurring geological event, based on superficial analysis of the evidence left behind.
