Ironclads Dropping In!

September 27, 2023

The Ironclad is the most advanced pod The Planetary Union has ever concocted. Limited quantity now available.

The Ironclad Drop Pod is — in many ways — the pride of the Planetary Union. It is these interplanetary couriers that keep our society running and united.

Direct Agitation of Space (DAS) technology allows the instant transport of any inorganic body within transmission range, but the production of gamma rays at the moment of agitation threshold is intense enough to dissolve any carbon-based object within 937 meters. As a result, it has long been the tradition of the Earthen Cluster to drop these pods from satellites before agitation. This ensures that created radiation harmlessly disperses.

Did you know!?

Ironclad is actually a misnomer, as these models are encased in a shell of lead-234 to limit the reach of their radiation.

They were originally called “Leadboys” until NamingConventionBot56.093 authorized their rebranding to a more inclusive title.

While the rigor of transporting matter through space will quickly wear down Atomic Drop Pods made of synthetic materials, Ironclad Drop Pods have a recommended operating life of 4,934,788 years.

Even better, when you scoop your pod up after it’s done, Ironclad Drop Pods will have purged 97.65% of their contained radiation. This makes it almost entirely without gene-degrading risk to use an ironclad!
