Soviet Mobile Biological Weapons are ubiquitous in Hot War, referred to probably more than any other twisted tech creature in the book while being the least described, left intentionally mysterious. All we know about them is they come in large numbers - 7000 trapped and killed in the Isle of Dogs for example.
I'd like to use them in my next game, but the possibilities are wide and I can't settle on a suitably disturbing description for them.
- Are they large behemoths, human sized or rodent like?
Mechanical or flesh?
Sentient or mindless?
Do they charge forward recklessly or seek to hide and infect the area subtlely over a long period?
Oozing slug like creatures or scurrying critters?
Living dead, transmitting their curse with their bite?
A euphenism for infected refugees, sent fleeing toward their own people by the Soviets only to be gunned down in droves by the Army?
There's a huge range of possibilities. What do you think is the most disturbing one?
