The Mamluk SAD is a combat droid within the realm of the Age of Machines. Like all other droids within the AOM world, it is not equipped with classic human-made weapons (guns, cannons, etc.), because this robot is a weapon in itself. The SAD is made for advanced technological warfare, and human troops with their weapons don't stand any chance, even if a large number of them are arrayed against a single one of these droids.
The SAD is a meant to make instant impact on the front lines. Reliable, it comes with enormous strength, great speed and the ability to make high-speed jumps as well as to fly. The traditional "front line" in human warfare doesn't apply with this droid. Using their advanced operating system, SADs employ spread offensives that transcend this pattern, and they are capable of executing thousands of complex military formations.
These strategies are fluid and constantly change, sometimes even in seconds, depending on the battlefield. This can, of course, lead to troops scattering. But because all units are under a superior cloudlike artificial intelligence that computes billions of data points each second, the chances of destruction by friendly fire or critical breakdowns in strategy are practically nonexistent.
The Mamluk SAD is made of chemically processed obronium (OB), a complex metal that is found on Tlendon, Yilon's moon. It was first discovered by Yilon scientist Nevis Bora.
In nature, obronium is extremely dense and heavy and has a dark-green tint. However, Bora successfully processed obronium to greatly reduce its weight while keeping its density. Further processing and fragmenting of obronium adds a unique feature to the metal: elasticity.
The Mamluk SAD is equipped with a special combat-programmed artificial intelligence labeled BPR-CMN V.1.0. The first three letters were chosen in honor of the deceased founding member of Weiss-Pickerton Beratain Pickerton, who was famous for his thrill-seeking hobbies. CMN stands for cumulonimbus (storm cloud).
Storm-cloud AI is known for its speed and its ability to connect all units, command them and establish a unique hierarchy depending on the battlefield. Because all SADs have the same abilities, it is the AI that chooses generals, officers and soldiers depending on current circumstances. This is called a floating hierarchy, in which victory on the battlefield is the first and only goal. This eliminates favoritism and all side effects of human emotions (like the blow to moral that may otherwise follow the loss of an important general).
Another important feature of this AI is its speed and the volume of data it is able to process within one second. Like the winds, tornados, downpours and thunderstorms a cumulonimbus produces in nature, this AI replicates this power in the digital world.
Under the hood:
Mamluk SADs are equipped with the SISO System Converter (SSC) as their source of energy, where SISO stands for Single In - Single Out. The SSC is a sophisticated converting generator able to filter any energy source to charge the droid. The SSC operates the droid without need of a recharging station and with no fear that it will ever stop working. If multiple sources of energy are recognized, the SSC always filters the strongest source.
SAD uses Weiss-Pickerton's proprietary weapon system called Blizzard Brawl Factor (BBF.) BBF feeds on SISO System Converter for unlimited shooting rounds, firing energy blasts capable of destroying any currently known surface material in the universe.
