Zond was the old Russian name for Unidentified Flying Objects. A name which accords perfectly with the speedy Nomad Remotes.
The Nomad nation has a long tradition in the use of remotes. In Corregidor they are frequently used for maintenance of the space craft and for working on EVA. For Bakunin, the remotes are an element in experimentation and development of interfaces and systems, which can later be applied to other applications, such as war or commerce. In Tunguska they are much appreciated as a support element for its hacker and cracker community.
Zond’ was the old Russian name for Unidentified Flying Objects, an apt name for the lightning-fast remotes designed for the Nomad Military Force. Meteor Zonds have been modified to add rapid aerial descent and combat jump capabilities.
