Pardon my typing. Sending this from a cell phone..
They were displayed in this stripped-down sort of manner purposefully. It shows the chosen audience the work put into it (investors included) and it
enables quick access for repairs.
It also hides the the future ways in which it will be utilized; one spec is for carrying equipment, yes. Another is a more heavily armored (not so
quiet) version which will have a soldier recognition system onboard, as well as defensive and offensive capabilities. The big draw was that even with
continuous small arms fire or concussive detonations, it will be able to remain on Target and reach its objective points even if others around might
get injured. They can even haul injured soldiers to sick bay if that's ever required, too.
Depending on the cargo, they can also be easily fitted with a self-healing skin so that any holes made into it will not become exposed to the outside
elements. The same type of skin used on a handful of our fuel tankers that, when shot, needed a way to seal the hole automatically to keep the fuel
from pouring out. Only difference here, of course, being the chemical mixture used.. the tanker one works using a chemical reaction, this one simply
from impact, with chemical layer possibly to fit under for this purpose. All tests though.. weight is still an issue despite what it's able to haul
around with/on it.
