Duck and Cover!
Time: 1962, Anno Domini
Place: Planet Earth, Former United States of America
Model: HK52-13-13 Interdiction Droid
Primary Function: Search and Destroy
Equipment: Mission-adaptable weaponry began here with the HK robots. Shown above, the model on the left is armed with a rapid-fire cannon chambered in .303 as well as a tungsten-grade grappler. It houses a tremendous power plant that runs fan turbines that allow it to move as a hovercraft. The model on the right has havier armor and also has a tungsten-grade grappler. Its primary armament is a chemical fueled flamethrower.
Description: The HK robots were an intimidating sight and would often cause even the most stalwart prey to turn and run. Air dropped into areas suspected of harboring survivors exactly one year after the atomics fell upon the continental United States, these robots dominated the landscape for some time. The southwest became the hunting grounds for the HK robots as it proved to have survivors who were too busy trying to scratch out existence and not able to mount a formidable resistance. Always working in pairs, HK robots could not be bartered or reasoned with, their single-minded programming absolute; destroy all humans.
