Commando constructs are elite fighting machines that often operate alone or in small squads. Although they are skilled combatants, these constructs can handle a variety of clandestine activities, including assassination, infiltration, kidnapping, and sabotage. They are most often found wandering or under the service of a local warlord.

The commando construct presented here is built using a terraformer robot as the base creature.
