The Greycat Industrial Cydnus is a spider-shaped industrial mining vehicle. In an early preview it was called a 'mining drone',[1] however the Cydnus can support 2 crewmembers and has a cockpit. Given it's uncertain autonomy, it is likely to require crew but may be capable of limited automated operation.
