Drathonian Small Crafts

Post by Straken » Sat May 28, 2011 6:00 pm

====== Scourge starfighter ======
Image
===== 1. About the Ship =====
The scourge is a cheap-easy to mass produce ship used for mostly swarm tactics
===== 2. History and Background =====
some retarded drathonian engineer came up with it, and his dumber superiors decided to put it in production over other, better designs that were harder to produce quickly
===== 3. Statistics and Performance =====
<**Organizations Using This Vessel:**Drathonian Spacy, Army.
**Type:** Starfighter
**Class:**Scourge
**Designer:**unknown
**Manufacturer:**various drathonian factories
**Production:** around one million
**Crew:**1
**Pilots:** 1
**Maximum Capacity:**1
**Appearance:** A spindle shaped fuselage with claw like booms coming from the engine pod. The booms hold the ship's weapons and shields. suprisingly, the design gives a very clear view forward, upward and downward, but pereferal vision is quite blocked by the booms.
==== Dimensions ====
**Length:**10meters
**Width:**6 meters
**Height:** 4 meters
==== Performance ====
**Speed (STL):.40 C**
**Speed (Fold):.5 ly/Min**
**Range:2,000,000 miles**
**Lifespan:2 years at best**
**Refit Cycle:any time possible**
===== 4. Roleplay Stats and Cost =====
==== Sections and Armor Rating ====
Fuselage: Weak
Engines: Weak
Shields: Strong
===== 5. Inside the Ship =====
The pilot lays face down on a very uncomfortable (for humans anyway) bench thingy, the controls are in front of the face and partially block the pilot's view
===== 6. Ship Systems =====
==== Armored Hull and Hull Integrated Systems ====
The armor is made of some strange red alloy.
==== Computers and Electronics ====
Very basic fly-by-wire systems are added
==== Emergency Systems ====
none
==== Life Support Systems ====
An onboard air-recycler can clean the air for 12 hours
==== Propulsion ====
A very cheap ion engine and a reverse-engineered warp drive power this vessel
==== Shield Systems ====
About 4 seperate shield generators provide very good shielding for this fighter
==== Weapons Systems ====
Anything that can be slapped on, from ion cannons, to chainguns.

====== “Rex” ======
Image
===== 1. About the Ship =====
The Rex was designed purely for fighter vs. fighter combat in response to the large number Terran fighters.
===== 2. History and Background =====
Not much is known in detail about the Rex’s origins. All that is known is from recordings of sightings by Terran vessels taken during scattered skirmishes. Since its first sighting, there have been an increasing number of Rex sighting throughout borderspace.
===== 3. Statistics and Performance =====

**Organizations Using This Vessel: Drathonian Empire **
**Type: starfighter**
**Class: RX-775**
**Designer: UNKNOWN**
**Manufacturer: UNKNOWN**
**Production: est. at over 27,000**
**Crew: 1**
**Pilots: 1**
**Maximum Capacity: 1**
**Appearance: Small, flat design. Pointed nose, stunted wing that sweep back. Quick and agile. **
==== Dimensions ====
**Length: 5.5 meters from nose tip to tail. **
**Width: 4 meters from wing tip to wing tip **
**Height: 2.5 meters**
**Decks: 1**
==== Performance ====
**Speed (STL): 0.60C**
**Speed (Fold): 1.08 ly/m**
**Speed (arial): mach 10**
**Range: 2.5 days at top speed**
**Lifespan: 6 years (presumed)**
**Refit Cycle: once every 4 months (presumed)**
===== 4. Roleplay Stats and Cost =====
==== Sections and Armor Rating ====

Fuselage- weak
Wings- weak
Engines- medium
Shields- weak

===== 5. Inside the Ship =====
(From wreckage recovered) The pilot sits in an almost laying down position with their feet pointing towards the nose. The pilot’s head sits just a bit past the mid point of the craft. The walls of the cockpit are lined with several high tech devices [believed] to be used when in dogfights. The devices and computers crowd around the pilot chair making the cockpit feel like a coffin.

===== 6. Ship Systems =====
==== Armored Hull and Hull Integrated Systems ====
The Rex fighter craft is covered in a armor made of an odd alloy (scientist still unsure of its origin) that has a reddish tint to it.

==== Computers and Electronics ====
Several electronic systems on board the craft. Most of the systems still remain a mystery as the systems were either to damaged in a dogfight to be of use, or they had fail safe that short circuited the system.

==== Emergency Systems ====
Self-destruct-[One of the fail safes mention previously], after several crafts blew up upon recovery by naval forces, it is presumed that the Rex is equipped with a self destruct to prevent dratho tech from falling into the hands of the Terran Republic.

==== Life Support Systems ====
[Successfully] recovered wreckages showed a highly advanced air recycle system, which is much more advanced then other drathonian fighter crafts.

==== Propulsion ====
Wreck remains showed a small compact engine, but despite its size it put out well around 4x the amount of thrust as a common Scourge fighter engine

==== Shield Systems ====
(From record taken during combat) This craft seems to have relatively weak shielding systems, which can be disabled with one or two well places shots. Craft relies on speed and agility to avoid enemy fire.

==== Weapons Systems ====
On most all of the craft we have seen the same basic complements of weapons.

=== Main Weapons ===
Rapid fire plasma turrets-common
Ion Burst(disable enemy electronic systems)-common
Anti-Aircraft missile pods-common
Self destruct capabilities-common
