Classification

B.O.W. Model: "U-8"
Base Organism: Unknown (Various)

Title

U-8

U-8 (short for Ultimate 8) was a giant hybrid B.O.W. (Bio Organic Weapon) developed by TRICELL using the DNA of multiple shelled organisms and implementing a Plaga. 1 2 3

History

The U-8 was created by combining the genes of different shelled creatures and administering a Plaga parasite to eliminate the segregation between the different cells.

Its functionality, combat effectiveness and ease of control made it popular on the B.O.W. market and numerous U-8s were reported to have been sold by Ricardo Irving, including the original U-8 and its upgrade, the U-8 Prime.

There were three known U-8 models. The standard model, the U-8 Prime, and a scrapped design for a lighter and longer lasting model. A standard model was assigned to guard the Uroboros Laboratory in West Africa and engaged Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar in combat, but was destroyed.

Attributes

U-8 Models

U-8 Standard

The standard U-8 was roughly tens of meters tall with pincer legs around three meters in length. The creature's large bulk made it overwhelmingly strong, but this was also its flaw as its large size made it more vulnerable to long-ranged attacks. Furthermore, it required a large amount of sustenance in order to properly function, making it unsuitable for long assignments.

Due to these limitations, the U-8's main role was as a defensive weapon, such as serving as security for sensitive facilities. It was most effective in close-quarters combat with a small number of opponents, but began to falter with larger numbers of opponents. The strength of its carapace was equal to that of tanks and durable enough to take direct blows from rockets. However, as the creature was designed to rapidly increase in size, its carapace suffered imperfections. Its main attack method was the use of its pincer legs and whilst they were not quick, they were able to pierce tank armor.

A flying B.O.W. resided in the U-8's abdomen originally intended for the maturation of eggs, called U-8 Drones. This creature was not a larval U-8, but a completely new species.

U-8 Prime

An upgraded model with a multi-layered carapace for extra defense and additional shell to cover the exposed areas of the original U-8's carapace.

Scrapped U-8

A scrapped model originally intended as a lighter and faster model able to maintain functionality for longer periods of time. The design was scrapped due to the downgrade of its defensive properties.
