The Vostok program was designed by the Glavnoye Razvedovatel'noye Upravlenie (GRU) during the Cold War with the express purpose to create a warbot designed for command and control (C&C) infiltration and elimination.
Fitted with a compact nuclear core and variety of sensors and weaponry, the Vostok series was designed to locate and evaluate important enemy targets, and then neutralize them with it's fearsome particle-based cannons, or infiltrate the target and destroy it using it's onboard nuclear core (estimated yield: 1.5 megatons.)
Only one prototype was ever tested, and with the cancellation of the project by the Kremlin this prototype was placed in storage.
The project was ressurected with the reorganized Union of Soviet Heroes project, and reprogrammed to serve as a mobile support warbot for the team, many of it's deadlier systems were removed, and new sensors and radiation dispensors were fitted.
The Vostok unit served with the Union for several months until a flaw in it's programming architecture resurrected it's old combat subroutines, sending the warbot on a rampage across Paragon City that was stopped finally by the hero, Biowar, who reprogrammed Vostok yet again with his nanotechnology.
Now set free of it's destructive directives and implanted with new ones the Vostok unit served as an independant agent until the recent Ruraluu Incursion ( See File)
While in defense of the city the Vostok unit activated it's nuclear core's detonation sequence and walked into a Ruraluu portal, exploding on the other side in a nuclear fireball as the portal slammed shut behind him.
The file was closed until a few months ago, when a new hero calling himself Vostok appeared. After exhaustive surveillance conducted by our agents we have surmised that this version is the same Vostok as before, but with a vastly upgraded body and AI. How the Vostok unit obtained these is a mystery
The new model Vostok is a Humanoid android, impossible to tell apart from humanity at first glance, it's outer surface skin is resistant to most forms of damage, which we surmise derives from a fullerene mesh, and is capable of changing complex coloration patterns to assume new appearances of clothes and uniforms or facial structures.
Vostok carries twin light particle accelerator cannons along his forearms, the barrels located in his palms - these cannon ports also are used for delivery of nanotech payloads via use of a low-level plasma charge carrier. With these devices Vostok can engage targets, injecting nanotech for medical usage, or debilitating effects. his cranial structure contains his sensor networks and a pair of high-energy laser cannons tunable to the x-ray wavelength.
Vostok's heaviest weapon is the fearsome Stormovik Cannon mounted in it's reinforced right arm, this proton particle accelerator runs the length of the arm, and can only be fired when the arm is locked in a stiff firing point position. Data on the Stormovik cannon suggests that the blast pulses of proton particles are sufficient to easily destroy a modern main battle tank from long range.
Vostok is fitted with communications systems and surveillance equipment as well as systems capable of interception and infiltration of communications wavelengths, in it's hands are sets of data taps capable of allowing Vostok to interface with outside computer systems and infiltrate them using it's onboard decryption systems.
For medical support the Vostok unit relies on it's onboard medical nanotech and sensor/diagnostic systems: these can be released in a carrier wave burst to effect all lifeforms around Vostok. His final piece of medical technology is the beta-wave particle bombardment systems fired from the same barrels as it's neutrino and plasma carrier emmission units. This last system, the beta-wave projetor, can 'jump start' the heart and nervous system of even critcally wounded personnel while rejuvenating their tissues through nanotechnology.
It is unknown whether Vostok retains it's self-destruct capability at this time, but the Vostok warbot does retain it's nuclear core, supplemented by a set of powertaps capable of drawing charge off nearly any power source, including city power grids, in order to recharge the warbot's reserves.
Now operating under Comrade Smersh's KGB Special Section 8 the Vostok unit bears watching for it's advanced technology. It is indicated that this new body can even devise new systems on it's own, a fascinating possibility in an artificial intelligence.
