What I love most about this piece is how much thought you put into the individual elements of the cybernetics. At first glace, I was thinking "What is this?!" But after reading your author comments, and examining each of the pieces, I really like the thought behind this. It is a fantastic futuristic take on war, especially in Africa.
I'm curious to see if you do a piece on what type of technology one of the richer, "powerhouse" nations would respond to this threat with. :P
