Use

The object must be deployed in the area of ​​action prior to the beginning of the conflict and must be used only for support, siege and attack functions. The object can use different shells of 130 mm caliber artillery, however, due to the speed of the cannon, it is recommended to use standard projectiles to maintain the confidentiality of the IC and the article in the area of ​​action. The object must be deployed only within a range of 30 to 56km from the target, any deployment request that exceeds the specified minimum should be immediately rejected regardless of the reason for the request, insubordination of the order would increase the chances of revealing the position of the article and consequently the possibility of loss or structural damage to the article. In case of insubordination of the orders permission is granted to the personnel assigned for the neutralization of the insubordinate personnel, later the personnel and the article must be extracted immediately.

Report

Currently the object is in a storage chamber for anomalous Armament in Wing 54 of Base Seven, it is strictly restricted the entry to unauthorized personnel, only maintenance and security personnel have access to the camera. Maintenance personnel are allowed to enter only every thirty-six (36) hours while security personnel must conduct rounds every two (2) hours. The entrance to the storage chamber must be kept closed at all times electronically with a lock with code of 16 characters and secured with an encryption system of 1024 bytes, the authorization of entry can be granted only by the security director of the Base Seven. The surveillance of the chamber of the enclosure is carried out by four (4) security cameras, two (2) cameras of thermal lens security, six (6) motion sensors and in person by two (2) security guards equipped with fire weapons. The object is always connected to an adjacent computer without an internet connection which is at all times under monitoring by a team responsible for the security of the article network.

The object has characteristics similar to other pieces of artillery, however, it has an electromechanical system inside which is connected to a small computer located in the right outer section of the latter. The latter is able to provide integrity data, heating, tranversity and degrees of inclination of the barrel. The operation of the artillery piece is similar to other Soviet M-46s, however, the reloading and firing process has a relatively longer duration. The electromechanical system is controlled by an advanced artificial intelligence in triangulation and correction of operational failures. Artificial intelligence has the ability to process data on the inclination, distance of the target, transection of the cannon and direction of the projectiles in mid-flight and readjust them in case of finding an apparent failure.

Currently responds to the name of AC01 and is under study for its possible relationship with the GdI-███: The Mechanical Angel. The data collected can be verified and displayed on a laptop modified personally for the article (See Annex PAC-2).

The projectiles also have the anomaly of correcting their course according to the degree of deviation of the objective, provided that it does not exceed the maximum of 8 degrees of deviation, likewise the projectiles are marked electronically to process data on their speed, distance and deviation. The object, despite having the anomaly of correcting apparent faults in its operation, is unable to operate autonomously, so the presence of at least two (2) staff members is necessary to carry out the loading of the projectiles and to aim the weapon.

The object called the attention of the Insurgency after the strange events led by the ORIA in Afghanistan during the 80s. Between the days of 05/23/1980 and 05/25/1980 the fall of at least ██ barracks belonging to Mujahideen forces in less than 72 hours. These facts attracted the attention of the High Command, so they decided to send reconnaissance agents to the area to investigate the origin of the events. After ██ hours of recognition and investigation occurred with the origin of the ORIA facilities in Afghanistan, to the Northeast of [DATA EXPUNGED].

During the first █ hours the agents were ordered to recognize and provide information on the relation of the shots and the origin of the fall of the mujahideen barracks, until ██ hours after the initial reconnaissance █ artillery fire from the installation was recorded with the objective of two mujahideen barracks north of the facility. Once the origin and the total damage of the projectiles were verified, the infiltration was carried out inside the installation. The assigned agents found the necessary information on the existence of the article, but no records were found on the origin of the article. Finally ██ hours after the reconnaissance mission, the High Command ordered a direct offensive against the installation for the recovery of the article.

Actualization

After the successful interview with the artificial intelligence of the article, a team of mechatronic engineers was granted authorization and Dr. ██████ an expert in analytical psychology for research and maintenance of the article. (see Annex PAC-1)

Actualización 18/01/2017

El personal de mantenimiento realizo la actualización del software de la artillería, dando como resultado un mejora sustancial en el método de disparo de la artillería, la localización de coordenadas ha sido cambiada por un método de guía satelital modificado para realizar Correspondencia de Contorno de Terreno y asi procesar una imagen vivida de la tamaño, velocidad y distancia del objetivo, todos los datos recolectados son enviados la computador de la artillería para efectuar las debidas correcciones. Los proyectiles del misil fueron modificados para funcionar bajo el sistema de guía SACLOS. Todos los datos del proyectil en vuelo son enviados directamente a la computadora de la artillería y son posteriormente corregidos por esta. La implementación del sistema SACLOS mejoró sustancialmente la velocidad de recarga y efectividad a la hora de las correcciones en pleno vuelo.

La artillería fue modificada para hacer pleno caso a las ordenes del superior designado, solo un miembro presente con una credencial de investigación de nivel Beta puede dar orden de fuego (Ver incidente 001). La artillería es capaz de denegar los disparos que pongan en riesgo la integridad de la artillería asi como inhabilitara temporal todos los intentos de disparos efectuados por el operador, para que se cumpla ese proceso se debera dañar a personal civil durante la asignación, cabe destacar que solo es personal civil reconocido durante el pleno vuelo del misil por lo que bajas colaterales por inercia no serán consideradas. Durante las asignaciones del articulo se debera despejar a todo el personal de la zona para impedir bajas en el personal insurgente. Se aconseja que el único presente para dar orden de fuego sea el Dr. █████, previamente asignado en las entrevistas debido a su relacion el articulo, el Dr. █████ debera ser escoltado por una escuadrón armado en todo momento, a su vez estos tendrán que realizar labores como cargar la municion y apuntar el cañón en la dirección inicial de disparo.

Asi mismo para impedir insubordinaciones al personal la artillería fue implementada con un sistema de desactivación remoto, en caso de atentar contra el personal insurgente o directamente contra la integridad de una base insurgente se podrán desactivar los proyectiles en pleno vuelo desde la central de control en la Base Siete, la orden de desactivación puede ser unicamente realizada con una autorización nivel Beta (con consentimiento previo de un miembro consejo Alfa) o superior.
