@digrarAbout a thousand years ago I spent a couple of days in Timor with an ASLAV set up like this. The boys showed me how the MSTAR radar worked (ours was man portable), but it was the cameras that were the real stars of the show, day and night, brilliant.
It’s the year 2123, and an ADF battlegroup is conducting combat operations off-planet against the alien predator hybrid insurgents threatening freedom on the natural resource rich planetoid Bogan Three deep in the Wop Wop Sector of the Billabong Galaxy.
The ADF battlegroup is equipped with state of the art plasma rifles in the 20 watt range, Ned Kelly Mark V exoskeletons, the latest sensor defeat technology, and the Browning Hi-Power remains the standard service pistol.
“The Browning 9mm pistol will remain in service until a replacement is considered under the Space 2125 ADF Small Arms Replacement Project,” a Defence AI spokesperson said. “The Project is currently due for Government consideration in 2124, but it may slip to 2199 due to conflicting funding priorities and the growing Borg threat detected in the Accadacca System.”
