Design & Development
Although it looks similar to a Mobile Worker, the Pluma is an unmanned, small, sub-unit produced by the Hashmal. Besides its pair of claw arms, it is also armed with a drill on its tail and a concealed railgun underneath its singular red eye. The Plumas moves by receiving power supply from the Hashmal via microwaves, and operate based on orders from the mobile armor. Aside from serving as attack units, they also function as scavengers, collecting resources such as fuel, propellant, and other materials to resupply and even repair the Hashmal. The Hashmal in turn can manufacture new Plumas with these resources. With enough time and materials, they can multiply infinitely. Data of the surrounding area collected by each Pluma is also transmitted in real time to Hashmal. Although the Plumas have a form distinct from the Hashmal, from a system point of view, they are still considered a part of the mobile armor.
