    Forward Operation

    While most major events of the Afghanistan conflict that Athena fought in would be familiar to people from our own timeline, the actual on-the-ground tactics and equipment were (unsurprisingly) very different.

    Autonomous military drones had been involved in ground, aerial and naval operations in conflicts in the late 1990s, but the Afghanistan conflict was the first major conflict in the wake of the 2001 Berlin Convention and its effective outlawing of unaccountable autonomous weapons.

    As the reintroduction of accountable operators in the loop was so recent, most NATO forces only had access to a limited number of relatively inexperienced drone operators during the early days of the conflict; naturally, this limited the number of operations where the drones could be deployed.

    Consequently, the relatively small numbers of HUGV (Heavy Unmanned Ground Vehicle) drones in most NATO armouries saw disproportionate deployment during the early years of the conflict; originally intended as mid-weight support for drone deployments, the HUGV's battlefield role was most dissimilar to traditional infantry or tracked vehicles - carrying more firepower than the former, but remaining more mobile in urban environments than the latter - making them a logical choice to prioritise for the limited numbers of trained operators.

    As more operators were trained, and the software interfaces better optimised to allow operators to handle more drones simultaneously, standard infantry drones were brought to the field to be deployed in greater numbers, frequently accompanying human deployments so that semi-autonomous drones could take hazardous positions in patrols. As significant upgrades were made to the equipment of traditional infantry at the same time, with many soldiers now being equipped with augmented reality hardware and exoskeleton assistance, these drones were much better able to operate alongside human soldiers than in previous conflicts. As such, casualties from improvised explosive devices were considerably reduced. 

    They also facilitated the more aggressive placement of NATO forward operating bases; with networked drones able to patrol a perimeter effectively at any time of day or night, bases could be situated closer to potentially hostile areas, improving reaction times and interfering with insurgent action.

    However, in many ways, drones were ill-equipped for other counter-insurgency tactics; unable to engage without human oversight, they could be slow to react to unexpected attacks, as happened on several occasions when Afghan Army soldiers defected to the Taliban.

    These shortcomings of semi-autonomous drones are what ultimately lead to experimentation with fully-sapient combat AIs, heralding a new paradigm in warfare that is yet to be fully understood...

    This particular image dates from mid-2012, near the start of Athena's second year of deployment. She's seen seated atop an Onager-type HUGV (likely under refit at the time, as evidenced by several empty weapon hard points).

    A relatively simple test of the centaur clothing aids I've just put out as a freebie - some morph sliders intended to assist with simulating dForce dresses, skirts and longer shirts on to the centaur geograft. (In this case, the dForce Attitude Dress).

    (G8F for now, but G8M centaur support will be coming soon).

     One figure I wish was re-released for G8F/G8.1F. If only to have her HD morph as those do not convert and had to be substituted from somewhat similar characters.

    "...  In the 24th century, a large part of global labor is made of humans cultured in amniotic tanks 
    and conditioned by AI — slave labor. Visser Robotics is a key player in the production of synthetic humans. 
    A few of you support the SM2, the Synth Manumission Movement. What a blow against the Mega Corps 
    if you break into Visser, hack their data servers, and steal their manufacturing codes! "

    Well I figured since i was in the halloween mode and thinking about submitting something for the contest, I might as well do some warmup renders.

    This doesn't fit the contest scenario, but I liked the idea so I went with it, LOL

    ... um, I think I might have found a bug in the spotlights.

  • Playing with Dasan 8... on Genesis 8.1 base, and Dasan skin converted to nuPBR with the Michael 8.1 skin (including Detail channel).

    This is a blend with Christian 8.

  • Experimentation time again... Luthbel's Cyclops suit on a Genesis 8.1 female.

    Some parts look worse than others, but the autofit is mostly pretty good.
