as mentioned previously in my last journal on how i will re-design I.raptor for the military.
so here are my designs:
there will be two variants of the I.raptor re-design and will have a new name entirely. the name for this project will be called the Shinigami project coming from the Japanese Mythical spirit or god of death. the creatures genus name will be based on the name of the project, Shinigami which in Japanese translates into Death God. both of their main design philosophies are stealth, utility, scout, and assassination. meaning that they will avoid direct confrontations at all costs. these two variants are for the same purpose but with different abilities for different situations.
The Two Variants of Shinigami:
The Shinigami luna (Death God of the Moon)
its base will be off the actual Velociraptor in the fossil record along with its maximum size being that big. apart from that it will be fully feathered and looks like the modern reconstructions of Velociraptor we see today, evident in Paleoart.
it will have the tail fans and wings of Microraptor., it will be used as a gliding tool as a way of mobility across trees and buildings.
its legs will be based of the Roadrunner not just for its speeding and steering prowess when running (either to get to place or an ability to flee)
a Secretary Bird will be a genome for its legs as well for its kicking power
Dakotaraptor DNA will be used to enhance leg strength
Utahraptor will be used to bulk up the raptor to a certain degree, its sleek and muscular
All of its feathers will be based on Barn Owls to increase stealth when on air
Harpy Eagles are used as a way of maneuverability around dense areas in time of flight
its Mouth will be based on the raptor itself except it will have snake fangs for a good reason
the reason it will have snake fangs that so it can inject a silent quick-killing venom like those of the south sea cone snail or box jellyfish, maybe even blue ringed octopus
the snake fangs will be based off the Gaboon Viper for its sheer length allowing certainty of venom
this enables them to kill the targets quickly without spending too much time or confrontation
they will have a great sense of smell of course, better than a dogs
its eyes will be based on the Penticodon's large eyes.
its neck will be based on the Owls to allow near 360 degree line of sight.
it will also have the heat sensor pits of Pit Vipers to allow heat detections
the colors are based on Ravens
it will have the voice mimicry ability of several birds to allow deceive and confuse the enemy which can be used offensively and defensively
so in conclusion the genom of Shinigami luna consist of: Velociraptor (base), Microraptor, Secretary Bird, Road Runner, Barn Owls, Gaboon Viper (snake Fangs), Box Jellyfish/South Sea Cone Snail/Blue Ringed Octopus (Venom), Utahraptor, Penticodon, Pit Viper (sensor pits), Dakotaraptor, and voice mimicry birds (voice mimicry skill).
all this make her to be a very deadly and small assassin that can quickly kill of specific targets and quickly leave. however besides having a shared flaw, it does not have the camouflage ability like the Indominuses nor the snake-tongue chemical sensors like the re-designs.
Shinigami sola (death god of Light)
its base will be based off the Celeophysis for its sleek design and small stature
its size will be reduced greatly though, using the Compsognathus size from the fossil record
also it will have the snake tongue to sense chemicals
its venom and fangs are the same as the previously mentioned variant.
it will have the color changing abilities of cuttlefish
as well as the texture changing ability of the Octopus
it will also have the eyes of Penticodon as well
its going to have the pit vipers pit as well
they will have the mucus secretion ability of slugs/snails to allow movement through tight spaces
Avian Dinosaur DNA is used for climbing skills
they will have their skeletal retraction ability of snakes so it can get smaller to go through even tighter spaces
they use python like necks for the lunge
so in conclusion the Genome of Shinigami sola consist of: Celeophysis (base), Pit Vipers (sensor pits), Gaboon Viper (snake fangs), Penticodon, Box Jellyfish/Blue Ringed Octopus/South Sea Cone Snail (venom), Octopus, Cuttlefish, Slugs/snails, Snakes, Avian dinosaurs like Epidexipteryx, and Pythons.
this creature have a different weakness compared to Luna, apart from being smaller it lacks the tools to be deceive troops by using their voice, it also lacks the ability to glide having lower mobility value. like it however it can kill specific targets and quickly leave.
now onto the shared flaws, both of them are very much fragile compared to I.raptor and its re-designs. sacrificing most of its durability and size for stealth, agility, and utility. apart from that, because of their size they can't hide the carcass of their victims. meaning either way, the people will find the dead body and alert the others.
that's all for the redesign, now onto something else.
the reason why even my re-design like
's re-design still won't be placed into military service. is due to the impracticality of using it, since only managed to garner one or two new roles that can be fulfilled by machines in future development. besides that the use of them is basically similar to war dogs except with the assassination role applied. even so, war dogs are restricted to logistic and security roles instead of combat operation roles. besides that the concept of combat war animals in modern warfare is an outdated concept in the actual battlefield. with the animals as mentioned in my first JW military problems journal being used in security/patrol (mine detection,etc) or logistic roles.
