Transynth

In order to bypass the speed and distance limitations of conventional synths, recent years have seen the development of prototype Transynths. Identical to their cousins in almost all aspects, Transynths have one ability that sets them apart from any other vehicle. With a quick re-arrangement of limbs and re-routing of power systems, they can convert from Synth to a fully-functional Aerospacecraft. It must be noted, however, that while their greater speed (and thus enhanced controlled glide ability) gives them a wider operating distance than a typical Synth, their power is still limited and they are not as suited to long missions as conventional aerospacecraft. The mechanisms necessary to enable this transformation are also rather intricate, and take up a good deal of space and power. As such, they can’t mount nearly the same amount of hardware as a Synth of the same size, usually about half or a quarter as much. This limits them to small light weapons or a single more powerful device. They are also some of the most expensive vehicles short of large spacecraft. Transynths are commonly used by police and special forces, both of whom value their adaptability and speed over firepower. They are typically named after mythological creatures.

There are also a few examples of ‘Heavy’ Transynths, which serve expeically unique purposes and can be as large as a dropship. One of the best known variants is the Dragon, a Keeper transynth designed to serve as a mobile fusion warhead launcher. It is believed that some other Paths may also have the ability to manufacture heavy Transynths of their own.

The Pegasus and Griffin are the only other varieties of Transynth currently known to exist.
