|Heavy Combat Drone|
The Heavy Combat Drone was most powerful basic Drone Unit in "The Dark Lord" Drone Army.
The Heavy Combat Drones were the strongest and most intelligent basic automatons. Their power was such that they were only slightly below that of a Captain in strength and could take on a Toa with ease. Since these units were the most powerful of the Drones, they were the least common of the three types. Omega would surround himself with a vanguard of them, and Heavy Combat Drones would often group together and form artillery columns to attack enemies from afar.
By 5,399 A.G.C., the bounty hunter Chazok had created the design for a grunt battle automaton, which he simply called "The Drone". This was the first in a long line of automatons that would eventually lead to his friend and partner Iron Knight. The Sharaku Argarak stole the data for all of Chazok's drone designs from the databanks of The Inferno, which became the basis for his own army, which "The Dark Lord" planned to use to conquer the Isle of Terra Nui.
One year later, Argarak had pre-fabricated nearly every single Drone of the three types, a small number of which were the Heavy model, prior to landing on the Isle of Terra Nui. Upon reaching land and creating the Sharaku Stronghold, he left it to the Torika to assemble each Drone. At its' peak, the invasion force brought to the Isle of Terra Nui consisted of over one-thousand Heavy Drones. They were all destroyed prior to and during the Battle of Terra Nui. All of the units sent to capture Terra-Koro were lost, and Chazok's bomb destroyed an additional one-third of the army. The Battle of Terra Nui wiped out the last few thousand automatons, and the remains of the Drones were swept out to sea following the collapse of the Coastal Shelf. Ironically, their destroyed wreckage would later become the basis of a beautiful coral reef in the Sharakoro Islets.
Abilities & Traits
Because of their strength, the Captains often put the Heavy Combat Drones at the back of battle groups to bombard their foes, lessening the risk of being attacked at full strength.
Each Heavy Combat Drone carried a large softnose laser with a wide arc, powerful kick, and huge amounts of firepower.
