Ileman-Loch Auaris SOMR FOIL by VulnePro Ileman-Loch Auaris SOMR FOIL by VulnePro
A new FOIL for all you fans of the big beasties :) Gradually more TKP stuff to come, including more of these fellas.

The Auaris-SOMR (Special Operations Multi Role) combat FOIL is, another example, of the 5th gen period in the evolution of these bio-mechanical entities. As the situation on Polemos changed, rather dramatically, so did the nature of FOIL warfare and the FOILs themselves. The tactics and honor based nature of the conflict was all but jettisoned entirely (though the Faedai themselves remained incredibly proud and upheld the virtues of their honor even when the tactics changed considerably).

Now due to a new, and greater, threat, due to the siege of the Black Son, FOILs became more sleek and reliant on infantry FOIL shettier weaponry (though many continued to effectively use swords in combat). So a great deal of 5th gen moved into this more industrial and sleekly utilitarian aesthetic with less artisan driven visual flourishes (though this did continue more subtly) simply due to these machines being even more mass produced in nature.

The Auaris SOMR, pictured here, is sporting a jungle cammo pattern with minimal markings. It carries a Geind bullpup combat submachine shett weapon with HVS rounds (High Velocity Shett rounds much like modern tank SABOT rounds). The FOIL is also carrying a rocket propelled spear. The Name Auaris is, yet again, an obscure historical reference from humanity's foggy past. I won't tell where it came from this time so feel free to try to guess ;)

By the time the 5th gen FOILs were at their peak production many of the prominent Polemon FOIL manufacturers were actively cooperating in production of these machines openly, rather than the back room dealing and playing both sides for gain they were engaged in before the siege. As such, many FOILs shared parts and design philosophies more openly. This new cooperation yielded many of the most effective and powerful FOILs ever produced.
