The "Dragon" is a lightly armoured personnel carrier with advanced attacking capabilities. Therefore it is equipt with laser projector and a double barreled automatic canon which fires 50 millimeter explosive rounds.
Its armour classification is light, which is the appropriate class for the main purpose, namely fast drop and evacuation missions. The energy supply for the drive and the weapon systems is kept up by powerful hydrogen fuel cells set in the back of vehicle. The that the engine housing is not covered with armour plates, literally being exposed to enemy fire, is often critizised by crew members of the "Dragon". The lead designer explained this with the powerful offensive options and the gain of agility due to let off of heavy armour in areas, which are rarely reachable by attacking forces. Flame-sword is proud for its extremely low rate of casaulties during missionswhere the "Dragon" is involved. Responsible for this phenomenon is next to the highest-standard training of the Flame-sword empoyees mainly the efficient covering fire of the "Dragon" itself.
The Dragon is capable of engaging in any terrain due to all-wheel drive and frontal wheel - rear wheel steering. The presence of underwater propulsion jets, swim bladders and water resistent interior fittings also allows amphibious use, but lack sealable hatches and stabilizers makes it very unpopular.
About this creation
First, study the vehicle from all sides to get familiar with the technical details. A vehicle is to its driver like horse to its rider, only love and understanding will bring the two of you together. Keep that always in mind.
The "Dragon" masters any terrain.
What is a combat vehicle without weapons?
The main offensive option of the "Dragon" is a laser projector. Common industrial technologies were advanced for military purposes.
A more defensive role plays this automatic canon. It launches high explosive fifty millimeter charges at an extremely high rate, which provides outstanding covering fire against infantry of any armouring as well as lightly armoured vehicles.
Tracking and Communication devices feed the crew with information about enemy movements and allow them to share their knowledge with the comrads in field.
If you are a member of the crew you should of course know the interior fittings as good as your own guts.
Thanks to active holographic screens and neural interface the driver can read every changes of the vehicle's status and react to them without letting go the steering wheel for an eye blink.
The gear lever is on your the left side. When the terrain demands a different transmission choose the lever to your right.
The special warfare officer operates the weapon systems and serves as an engineer in certain cases.
The frontal screen is moveable for quick evac.
Armoured cameras and sensormoduls on each side of the outer hull feed the active holographic screens inside with multiple views of the battlefield. An array of screens and active holographic controls allow a 360 degrees view and intuitive steering of the weapon systems.
No talking to the driver if it is not absolutely nescessary.
The same is for the gunner.
Always drive with caution. You are not the only one on the road.
Excellent work again! I like the fact, that you´ve given us some information about `The Dragon`! PS: The set LEGO arctic 6575 contains a polar bear, but you can `buy it now` for 5,99$ at ebay. ( I`ve given the bear black color)
