We've yet to recover one of these in functional condition from the field - the men seem to enjoy using them for target practice. At the present time, we know that the "Cyberdisc," as they've been calling it, is heavily armed, but it shows no clear pattern of behavior on the battlefield.
So far, we've been unable to ascertain whether this is strictly a mechanical creation or a living organism. Based on our findings, it has an alternative biochemical system based on the silicon atom. Like carbon, silicon can create molecules that are sufficiently large to carry biological information, and since silicon has several chemical properties similar to carbon, it is possible this could be a new and completely alien life form, with respect to the specimens we've already encountered. Its internal mechanisms seem to operate like organs, giving it the ability to circulate plasma through its core systems, much in the same way blood flows through our bodies. Our Unit Analysis View available in the field should provide additional specifics regarding this species' various combat abilities.
These mechanisms enable the construct to distribute vital functions throughout its body. After further study, it may be possible to use these designs in our genetic modification program to reduce our soldiers' dependence on vital organs such as the heart.
