The Pixel & Plastics company was asked to develop a serie of three space eggs for delicate search and rescue operations. The R6 "space egg" UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) was designed for prototyping quick build & finish production pipelines and testing new materials & composites.
The R6 and an undisclosed 2nd prototype are already operational. Powered with a compact PP356-A01 jet engine, a state of the art QW#2 radar, the RT7 high frequency receiver & transmitter and a set of Forward-looking infrared (FLIR) cameras this R6 is ready to do it's job; search & rescue missions.
When the dust settles Tripod FI N°|162845 was ordered to scan the area for any hostilities together with several small individual R6 "space egg" scout teams.
This scene illustrates the R6 |#167 search & rescue team nearing the crash site center on October 7th 2108. In total 19 R6 teams joined this search & rescue operation that day. One team R6 | #89 was missing in action while 3 other scout teams suffered some heavy damage that day.
