Cameleon

From Open Perpetuum
Description
Cameleon

The Union’s Cameleons were the first bots to seriously employ sensor-disrupting technologies as a main combat platform. Coupled with the extremely dangerous close range weapon systems that the Nuimqol can bring to bear while their opponents re-acquire their targets, these small bots spell significant hardship for any Pelistal forces they may meet.
