-====== Cyclops heavy combat Mecha ====== 
  
-The Cyclops heavy combat Mecha is a general-use machine developed and manufactured by [[faction:​uso:​osman_heavy_industries|]] for internal and domestic use, as well as foreign export. ​ 
- 
- 
- 
-===== About the Cyclops ===== 
- 
-The Cyclops is [[faction:​uso:​osman_heavy_industries|OHI'​s]] first combat mecha, and mechanism ​ 
- 
-==== Key Features ==== 
- 
-The Cyclops uses the same inner frame as the [[faction:​uso:​ohi:​oxen_multipurpose_mecha|Oxen]],​ with high power servomotors as well as some pneumatics as a skeleton wrapped in artificial muscles interlaced with strands of [[faction:​freespacers:​liquidally|]] all wrapped in Liquid Ally, forming what looks like a skin over the ‘muscles’. ​ 
- 
-{{:​wip:​inner_frame.jpg?​400|}} 
- 
- 
-==== Advantages ==== 
- 
-The Cyclops is an inexpensive alternative to other high maneuverability armored platforms, and is very flexible by virtue of having a humanoid form factor. It’s also heavily armed with built-in weapons, and has the capacity to hold other weapons in its hands. 
- 
- 
- 
-==== Drawbacks ==== 
- 
-The Cyclops is big and heavy, and is easily outmaneuvered by anything short of a main battle tank when it isn’t using its flight pack. 
- 
-===== History ===== 
- 
-The Cyclops began initial designs shortly after Osman Heavy Industries created it’s first mecha design, the Oxen, and began mass production in early [[calendar:​ye_40|]]. It was the first combat capable design the company had produced, and saw success in foreign markets as well as some success locally. 
- 
-=====Appearance===== 
- 
- 
-The Cyclops maintains OHI’s signature boxy style, and takes roughly the form of a stout humanoid with thick boxy arms and strong looking legs. The only outstanding features of it’s appearance are its namesake head, which houses a monocular style sensory  ​

- 
-Tier 8, medium armor.\\ 
-Tier 8 shield. 
- 
-===== Interior ==== 
- 
-The cockpit of the Cyclops is identical to that of the Oxen spartan, with a full body harness tucked away above the pilot, instrumentation on the front of the console. There are viewscreens on the left and right of the cockpit'​s interior, and the main forward monitor (which is located on the inside of the main hatch) has a smaller rear viewscreen above it. Pedals rest below the console, and two joysticks atop it. The entire console and seat assembly can slide forward to allow boarding. 
- 
- 
-===== Getting In and Out ===== 
- 
-The Cyclops is boarded by either climbing from a gantry into the seat, which slides out from the cockpit after the main hatch opens, or by riding up a mechanically retracting line with a stirrup on the end of it, which allows the pilot to enter and exit the craft without a gantry. 
- 
- 
- 
-===== Onboard Systems Descriptions ===== 
- 
-Most of the systems that the Cyclops uses are open source parts whose blueprints were acquired from local freespacers and the USO itself. 
- 
-=====Weapons Systems===== 
- 
-The Cyclops mounts two [[faction:​uso:​ohi:​hardsell_coilcannon|Hardsell coilcannons]] in each arm (tier 6)  
- 
-There are [[corp:​fscorp:​products:​universal_pulse_laser_equipment|two universal pulse lasers]] located in the shoulders for point defense and use against soft targets (tier 3)  
- 
- 
-==== Main Weapon ==== 
-The main weapon of the Cyclops is a built in artillery cannon which fires 120mm HEAAP shells. 
- 
-**Purpose:​** Anti-Armor\\ 
-**Damage:** [[guide:​damage_rating_v3|Tier 9]]\\ 
-**Range:** 70,000 Meters (70 km)\\ 
-**Rate of Fire:** 15 rpm\\ 
- 
- 
- 
- 
- 
-==== Armor ==== 
- 
-The Armor of the Cyclops is made out of layers of thin modular plates of [[materials:​usonium|Usonium]]which coat the body. Layers are used to reduce armor penetration and to provide more defense against energy weapons via ablation. Plates are easy to replace, which makes it easy to repair so long as there is no damage to the internal frame of the machine. 
- 
- 
-==== Shields ==== 
-The Cyclops uses conformal ​ [[technology:​shield_system|electromagnetic and gravitic shielding]],​ which is ideal for combat because it is less energy hungry than a bubble shield. 
- 
-==== Power Systems ==== 
- 
-The Cyclops is powered by a single [[faction:​uso:​u-g3801|open source hyperspace tap generator]] which is fully hooked up to a coolant system for optimal operation. 
- 
-==== Propulsion ==== 
- 
-The Cyclops is too heavy to achieve in atmosphere flight without wing surfaces, so a solution was created in the form of the thruster pack, which folds out to allow flight. ​ 
- 
-The Cyclops'​ propulsion system is provided by a [[faction:​uso:​u-g3901|Gravity Augmented Ram Drive]] which is piped to the thrust pack. 
- 
-It is capable of hovering in place on a planet, and maneuvering in the same manner as a hovercraft, albeit an extremely heavy one. It is also capable of VTOL and STOL takeoff procedures. 
- 
-==== Sensors and Computing ==== 
- 
-The Cyclops is equipped with an [[character:​wazu:​gear:​wz-g3802|optical sensor]] inside its head, hidden behind the monocular eyepiece on its head. It also has a small radar array located within the head. Additional equipment such as subspace radar as well as magnetic, gravitic, thermal and sensors are located in its chest, in a compartment behind the pilot’s seat. 
- 
-There is a secondary [[character:​wazu:​gear:​wz-g3802|optical sensor]] embedded in the top of the chest, just above the entry hatch. 
- 
-Computing power is provided by a cluster of [[corp:​wazu:​scale_datapad|scale datapads]] inside the console block.
