Inferno by CrazyAsian1 Inferno by CrazyAsian1
2156
Poaching runs rampant in Africa. As Rangers and Poachers vie for control of the last endangered animals in Africa another conflict rages on the West Coast of America.

California is being hit with the worst drought in the states history. Temperatures are reaching record highs with no rain in sight. The agriculture industry is on it's last leg as the major cities centers draw more and more water away from the farmland to sustain the many millions within their limits. As lawmakers and politicians debate the situation the environment reaches a tipping point.

In the summer of 2156 massive wildfires ignite across the state threatening towns and cities both large and small. The parched landscape is prime for some of the largest and most destructive fires on record.

Stretched to the limit, the California Fire Service scrambles to deploy teams across the state to combat the fires before they can reach major civilian centers. Mobilizing both local and state fire units as well as volunteers they battle the inferno to protect both the land and the livelihoods of the people.

Deployed in the field with them are advanced drones in the shape of local wildlife. They bring much needed assistance to the field, but will they be enough?

Another idea in the works.

As a wildland firefighter I have to say, I absolutely LOVE THIS!! I would love to see how this story plays out that you put in the description. I hope you don't mind if I show this to my friends on the Forestry team.

Would be a fantastic image to see Smokejumpers and their Smokies (the Bears) all jumping out of the back of a CFS Osprey.

Wonderful timing with the crazy fires we've been having her in Cali. After seeing the destruction today and how much our firefighters were able to save, this is a pretty badass tribute (even though you may not have meant it that way).

Well, hopefully it won't be as bad as it was here or worse (like Witch Creek back in '07), but if so, stay safe!

A bobcat mech could be a variant of the mountain lion mech you were talking about earlier in the thread with fire trenching/ scouting capabilities, but could be small enough to be deployed with teams of smoke jumpers.  It may also be able to specialize in getting around in trees.

I've enjoyed your art about the Big 5 African mechs, and I'm looking forward to see what you can do with possible California/North American animal drone designs.

I had similar thoughts about being deployed with smoke jumpers. Would be great to see a bobcat strapped to the back of one of the jumpers while they're dropping in.

Also thanks for the kinds words. I'm glad you enjoy what I've been doing and we'll see where it all ends up going! :D

Quite the timing of this submission. I hear that the current wildfires are raging so much that reports tell of tornadoes made of fire. A firenado if you will.
