Terran Fedration WEAPON SYSTEMS:
Siege Cannon Mk.I:
The Siege Cannon is a newly developed particle weapon system designed to be used on the new Titan Class Weapon Platforms as its main weapon. The Siege cannon is a more powerful quantum reflex cannon with accelerator technology designed from Vangar energy weapon technology to increase its energy output by forty percent. This weapon is so large, that it takes up thirty percent of the entire stations mass and requires two fusion reactors to fire it. The weapon draws energy both reactors, and requires large converters to convert that energy into high yield quantum particles. The beam that is released can travel over five million kilometers, and has enough power to completely destroy a fully shielded Orion Class Dreadnought in a single hit. The weapon has a cool off and recharge rate of 2 minutes.
Quantum Reflex Beam Cannon Mk.V:
The Quantum Reflex Beam Cannon is the Terran Federations main weapon when it comes to ship to ship combat. This high yield energy weapon has been enhanced with Vangar Ion weapon technology to improve rate of fire and shield damage by thirty percent when compared to the Mk.IV cannon. This weapon is currently only placed on heavy warships like Dreadnoughts, Battleships, and Battlecruisers as it takes lots of power to operate and alot of internal space. With the Vangar Ion technology, the need for bulky capacitors is no longer required to store and convert the energy from the ships reactors. This new tehnology allows a smaller converted to be installed and can charge the weapon five times faster then before. But, there is still a problem of overheat and the weapon must cool down between fires for at least one minute. Quantum Reflex Cannons has a optimal firing range of one million kilometers and a maximum range of two point five million kilometers.
Ion Lancers Mk.I:
Ion Lancers are a new energy weapon designed from Vangar technology. These weapons are designed to be used mostly to quickly take down enemy shields as they discharge high levels of ionized particles per beam and this can disrupt most known shield systems. It is a quick firing weapon, taking only a few seconds between shots to recharge. Also Ion Lancers are not cannons or turrets, they are installed in small arrays. This gives it a full 180 degress of view, and it can keep firing even if the two ships are engaged in combat maneuvers. This weapon was intended to be equipped to smaller warshis like destroyers and frigates to give them extra fire power, since they can not have Quantum reflex cannons or many rail cannons. These weapons have a short range of only sixty thousand kilometers.
Pulse/Particle Cannon Mk.II:
Pulse/Particle Cannons or more commonly known as PPCs, are light energy weapons designed for engaging destroyers and frigate types of vessels and can be used as a heavy anti-fighter interceptor weapon system. PPCs are able to fire both small fast bursts of plasma and a narrow beam of plasma energy. Just like the other energy weapons in the Terra Federation, PPCs are enhanced now by Vangar technology to improve rate of fire and armor penertration. The two modes can be switched at anytime to allow the ship to qiuckly adapt to the combat situation. The Pulse mode has a maximum 80,000 kilometers and a rate of fire of 100 pulses per minute The particle beam mode has a maximum range of 96,000 kilometers and a rate of fire of 25 beams per minute.
Vulcan-Type Pulse Cannon Mk.XIII:
The Vulcan Type Pulse Cannon is a scaled down pulse energy weapon designed to be used on small vessels like fighters and support craft. It is a very versatile weapon that is great for hitting fast moving targets and can be used to hit ground targets. It is very accurate and has a moderate rate of fire for a pulse energy weapon. Standard barrel sizes range from 20mm all the way up to 100mm. The most common are 40mm cannons that many fighters use as their main defense. These weapons fire small charged bursts of energy, this energy has a high damage rate against hull armors on small craft, but is useless against heavier capital ship armors. Vulcan Pulse Cannons have enhanced rate of fire due to new accerators from Vangar technology, this makes them twice as deadly against enemy fighters. The newer 100mm barrel is now replacing the older railguns as Federation warships main close in weapon system. VPC's are also replacing auto-cannons used on vechiles as their main anti-air/anti-personnel weapon.
Rail Cannon Mk.II:
Rail Cannons are the Terran Federations main long range artillery space based weapon. Using magnetic accelerators to accelerate projectiles trough space, Rail Cannon rounds rely on pure kinetic force to penetrate enemy shields and hull . There are a wide range of sizes for Rail Cannons, the most common ones are 2000mm and 3000mm barrels and they are perfect for ship to ship combat. They have a optimal range of 500,000 kilometers and a maximum range of 800,000 kilometers. Most classes of warships carry at least one Rail Cannon for long range engagements.
Kinetic Energy Cannon Mk.I:
Another type of Kinetic weapon used in the Terran Federation are Kinetic Energy Cannons or KEC's. These weapons are close range guns designed for up close combat with enemy ships. Using similar magnetic technology as the Rail Cannons, KEC's fire explosive rounds that explode on contact instead of trying to punch through with just kinetic force. These rounds travel at slower speeds then Rail slugs but have a wider splash damage area and can even be used as Flak batteries. They have a maximum range of 100,000 kilometers.
Railgun Repeater Mk.I:
The Railgun Repeater is a new type of heavy cannon designed for the Warhammer Class Bomber as its main weapon. Basically it is a scaled down version of the Rail Cannon and redesigned into a heavy Gatling gun style weapon. Its main goal was to tear through light Capital ship armor. It fires 100mm Caliber rounds but at a slow rate of fire, and not intended for anti-fighter engagements. It can fire standard 100mm Kinetic rounds or explosive rounds for extra damage.
Galting Repeater Mk.II:
The Gatling Repeater is similar to the Railgun Repeater but scaled down to suit anti-fighter engagements. This chaingun of sorts is currently only on the Lightning Class Tactical Fighters as its main weapon. It can fire 60mm rounds at high speeds, perfect for fast moving objects. This is the mark two version of the Gatling Repeater and the mark two features enhanced target lead software and better targeting systems.
Guass Cannon Mk.V:
Gauss Cannons are heavy ground based vehicle weapons, mostly used on Tanks and Walkers as a means to destroy the enemies tank or vehicle first. Gauss Cannons are very powerful as they accelerate shells or other types of ammo at supersonic speeds via electromagnetic forces. This is effective as it cause heavy kinetic damage as well as what ever is loaded in the shell for a charge. Since they need electromagnetic forces to accelerate rounds, this requires a large amount of power and mostly is only used on Vehicles and base defense turrets.
Mortar Cannon Mk.II:
A Mortar Cannon is a type of Artillery launcher designed for the Siege Tank as its secondary mode main weapon. It can fire a number of rounds or shells like explosive, Armor Piercing, or EMP grenade rounds. It has a optimal firing range of 18 kilometers.
Starfire-Type Tactical Nova-Fusion Missile:
The Starfire Type Missile is a Tactical Nova-Fusion based Cruise missile, designed to replace the slow Nova Type Torpedo. The Starfire can travel at twice the speed of he old Nova Torpedo and has better tracking and guidance systems. The Starfire also carries a larger payload enhanced with deuterium to increase energy output. Normally only a few of these types of missiles are carried on a warship as the use of Tactical Weapons can only be authorized by an Admiral or The President. Extreme safe guards are in place to ensure these weapons do not go off while on board a warship. During combat, the warheads are locked down in a special room shielded from extreme radiation and heavy blasts, it also has an airlock so if needed the warheads can be dumped into space. Handling of the warheads to the missile is done via auto-maned machines so limit human contact.
Juggernaut-Type Heavy Cruise Missile:
The Juggernaut Type is a Heavy Anti-Ship Cruise missile designed to replace the older Anti-matter torpedo. The reason for this change over to missiles was the fact that torpedoes were becoming too slow to deal with the number of faster warships being made by various nations. So missiles were redesigned and giving all the roles as Capital ship strike weapons. The Juggernaut is a heavy anti-matter based anti-ship missile, meaning that it is designed to inflict heavy damage on capital ships and stations. They are slightly less powerful then the older Anti-Matter torpedoes but they do have much better guidance and targeting systems making them faster and more accurate then torpedoes. Normally a warship would carry between 50-150 Juggernaut missiles in their storage bays, this can be increased or decreased depending on the mission situation.
Valkyire-Type Light Cruise Missile:
The Valkyire Type missile is a light anti-capital ship cruise missile. It is the second generation of the Valkyire design and name, thus makes it a signature weapon to the Terran Federation. The Valkyire is a high speed cruise missile, with enough anti-matter to take out smaller vessels like frigates and damage heavier vessels like cruisers. These missiles are also smaller, and more can be carried on a warship. These missiles are carried on all Terran Federation naval ships and stations as their main missile weapon. With medium range, these missiles can literilly "rain" death apon an enemy vessel.
Hellbringer-Type Shield Distruptor Missile:
The Hellbringer is a new type of missile that the Terran Federation has designed with the help of the Vangar people. Using their ionized particles from the Ion Lancers, these missiles have the ability to overload enemy shield grids but feeding ten times the normal amount of energy into the grid, forcing it to fail. These missiles are very fast as their payload is very light, and the bodies can be made small. These missiles use advance guidance software and have a anti-jamming casing to help with ECMs. Most shield types can be affected by these missiles, but it could take several impacts before they complete overload the enemy shields.
Jericho-Type Anti-Ship Missile:
The Jericho Type is a anti-ship missile designed to be carried by bombers and even fighters. This missile is small enough to be armed on large fighters and bombers and is powerful enough in groups to take down a frigate or destroyer. Jericho's have half the destructive power of the Valkyire-Type missile, but in groups they can be just as deadly. These missiles are slow, but well worth it when they hit their target.
Sparrow-Type IR Heavy Missile:
The Sparrow-Type is a heavy hitting anti-fighter missile designed only for air to air. It uses advance infra-Red tracking systems to lock on to an enemy craft and track it until its reached its target. These missiles pack a good punch to deal with dropships and bombers, but fast fighters can easily out manunver these missiles.
Longbow-Type IFF Light Missile:
The Longbonw Type is a light anti-fighter defensive missile used to engage enemy fighters or ground tracks with speed and accuracy. They don't have a lot of punch to get through heavier armors like on bombers but can easily take down nimble fighters. The Longbow uses the fighters computer system to lock onto an enemy target and tracks that target until it is destroyed. This missile is also used as a CIWS for ships and stations and on the ground.
Reaper-Type Hyper Unguided Missile:
The Reaper Type is a light, unguided missile that is used mostly for ground attacks on bases or stations. A standard pod will be able to carry up to 8 of these missiles, there are also small and large versions of the pods as well. The Reaper doesn't have a guidance system, this makes the missile very fast and can carry the same amount of explosives in its warheads as the Sparrow. But, with no tracking system these missiles are normally only used by bombers to attack stationary targets.
Planetary Defense Shields Mk.I:
Planetary defense shields are a large shield that is used to protect a planet or moon from enemy bombardment. These shields are Positron based, using a mix of Terran, Vangar and Creator technology to create a powerful energy field that can stop most known weapons from penertrating it. The shield is powered by a network of orbital defense stations, each station will have one massive generator on it. Taking out over half of the stations will cause the shield to fail due to not enough power.
Positron Particle Defense Shields Mk.I:
Positron shields are a new type of particle energy field designed from Terran, Vangar and Creator technology and data. These new shields are five times stronger then neutron shields, and two times stronger then polaron shields. Positron shields can hold back all forms of attack, from energy weapons to projectiles these shields have the same defensive rating for them all. These sheilds sit four meters away from the hull to reduce power strain on the generators. Each generator can produce a 100 terrawatt particle field around a small area. When a ship raises their shields during combat, all of the generators are online but only eightly percent of them are working to make the shield. The other twenty percent are on stand by, as backup just in case the main ones burn out or are destroyed. These shields provide the same amount of protection for any class of warship or station, however the generators are limited to the vessels or stations power generation. Position shields use the same regeneration technology as used in Neutron shields, this can keep the shields in use longer during a long battle.
Polaron Particle Energy Shields Mk.I:
With neutron shields now no longer able to keep with with the demands of the Federation. The Vangar were happy to provide their Polaron shield technology to be used on Civilian ships and now on small craft like fighters. Though, no where near as powerful as the new Positron shields, Polaron shields are still great for basic shield defense. Also Polaron shields are now being fitted to fighters, support craft and shuttles for extra protection. Fighter shields can protect the craft from small weapons fire and light missile impacts, but is weak against heavier weapons. Support craft shields are good for light to medium fighter weapons and missiles, but also very weak against heavier weapons. Civilian shields will have the same amount of protection Vangar warships use to have during the Republic.
SPARTAN-A Type Ablative Multi-Layered Armor:
The SPARTAN-A Type Ablative Armor is the second line of defense for a warship or station and has greater resistance to high impact weapons and projectiles. Terran Federation Ablative Armor is layered into three sections. The first layer which is on top comprises of thick Titanium plates, the second layer is filled with nano-fiber tubing that absorbs the force of impact and the third layer is a thin coating of a heat and shock resistance over a thin piece of titanium. Armor on a warship is placed out in small square slabs on the main hull, not every place on the hull is covered by the armor but most of the high value areas are like engine housings, weapon turrets, reactor covers, and missile bays. When a weapon hits the piece of armor, it absorbs what it can then it vaporizes. This does leave the area under the armor exposed but will buy a ship more time then standard hull plating and shields alone.
MIRROR-II Type Reflective Composite Armor:
The Mirror-II is a more refined version of the Mirror-I armor used on stealth craft and vessels. The second version has better energy weapon resistance and a second coating of anti-sensor polymer to greater reduce the ship or craft appearing on enemy sesnors. The armor hids the craft or ships energy readings, making finding the vessel harder unless the enemy has more tuned sensors. This armor will continue to be under heavy testing as the need for better stealth technology will be around for a while in the Terran Federation.
Trinium Multi-Grade Hull Plating:
Trinium is a new type of medal compound that is now used in the making of hulls on warships and stations. This new type of hull plating has much stronger resistance to outside radiation and heat. Titanium hull had a melting point of ten thousand degress celcuis, Trinium plating has a forty thousand degree melting temperature. It also has nano-bots inside the metal, these bots can repair small breaches and damage done to the armor, heavier damage still requires the ship to be repaired in a shipyard. This armor is also much lighter, and easier to use then Titanium.
Close In Weapon System (CIWS):
Close in weapon systems or more commonly called CIWS, are small turrets of rapid firing cannons or missiles that are designed to intercept enemy missiles, fighters and anything else they can shot down to protect their ship. The Terran Federation uses two types of CIWS, one cannon type and one missile type. CIWS are placed in batteries around a vessel or station, the most common layout is four VPCs and one missile interceptor together.
Hurricane-Type 100mm Vulcan Pulse AAA Battery:
The Hurricane Type has been refitted to a 100mm Vulcan Pulse AAA battery. This move was made after testing the stopping power of the older 80mm railguns verses that of the VPC. Not only was the VPC able to stop more missiles and destroy more fighters then the railgun, it also doesn't use up any ammo and that extra space can now go towards more important systems. The new Hurricane-Type 100mm VPC is the most powerful VPC every made do date, and can fire just as fast as the older railgun did. It uses powerful tracking systems to calculate the enemies position and where they are going to be. CIWS are controlled by the ships on board AI, but can be manned if the AI is not able to handle the point defenses or if it is disabled. Commonly, it is a dual barrel design, but tri and quad barrels are also in use on stations.
Blizzard-Type Missile Interceptor Battery:
The Blizzard-Type is a new anti-fighter/anti-missile interceptor system designed to track incoming fighters, small craft, and missiles. Once in range, it will fire longbow-type missiles to intercept and destroy its target(s). The Blizzard is also controlled via the ships or stations AI, they can also be manned by gunner crews. The Blizzard system has its own LIDAR dish and shares that info with the other emplacments around it. The Blizzard unit carries 21 longbow missiles.
Electronic Counter-Measures (ECMs):
Electronic Counter-Measures or ECM are devices that are used on board warships and stations to disrupt enemy missile guidance, targeting equippent and sensors. These units can be swtiched to whatever setting is needed at any time, and most ships have at least two generators (one for offensive, and one for defensive tactics). Before, the Terran Federation mostly used these ECMs for defensive purposes but now they can be used for offensive purposes as well.
Type-8 ECM Unit:
The Type-8 ECM is a device that is installed on warships and stations, once activated it can defend the ship against enemy missile lock-ons, blind enemy sensors, disrupt enemy sensors with false readings. Normanlly a ship will carry between 2 to 6 units, two units are always on during a battle, one operates inthe defensive mode, while the other operates in the offensive mode.
Transporter Inhibitor MK.VII:
The Transporter Inhibitor is a piece of technology that disrupts transport locks on people inside ships, stations and buildings and protects them from getting transported away. This also denies enemies to transport over to ships, stations or buildings. Small units are placed on every deck, level or floor and do not require that much power to run. At least half of the units need to be taking offline in order to transport to that deck or level.
With Terran Federation computer systems becoming more and more advance, a defense was needed to stop any enemy from hacking into their cores and taking over the ship or taking vital information. The first line of defense for the AI is a series of high level encrypted firewalls. These are activated once the system detects that it is being hacked or is the internal alarm is set. The number of firewalls is around 30-35, the excat number is set at random each time the system is activated. The next layer of defense is the AI it self, new Terran AIs are now smarter and can control their own virtural space. The AI is loaded with counter-measures and anti-hacking software to combat another AI or virus that enters the system. At this stage, all computers on the ship are locked out from the main computer. Not even the Captain of the vessel can overrid the system to restore control. The last measure is a simple, but effect means on ensuring the safetly of Terran Federation information and lifes. The AI core is wiped clean of all data, a backup of the data is stored in a secondary core that is not connected to the ship at all, and can not be hacked into. If by chance that the secondary core is hacked into as well, the ships auto-destrut is activated and can not be aborted. This is the last defense and hopefully will notbe used. All Commanding officers are briefed about these safeguards.
ME8000 Series Hyper Matter/Anti-Matter Reactor:
The ME8000 is a new series of matter/anti-matter reactors. These new reactors have enhanced converation rates and high power outputs then the last M/AM reactors used. This extra power is needed to power all the new systems and weapons that are now found on Terran warships and stations, like new weapons, shields, AI, and jump drive. The ME8000 series use up less fuel the before and can generate five times more power then the older reactors. Weapons can now charge twice as fast, and shields will last longer in battle. Also, engine output will be slightly higher, allowing better speed. Just like the older reactors, these ones can be ejected into space if a overload is to occur or if it is too badly damaged.
Galaxy-VII Enhanced Plasma/Fusion Reactor:
The Galaxy-VII is a new version of the type six fusion reactors used on Terran Federation warships and stations. These new reactors will give out more power, and have been enhanced by plasma injectors to give a 20% power boost. Fusion reactors help to power the ships vital systems like life-support, AI, weapons, and sensors. Most ships have at least two reactors and are backups in case the M/AM reactor is not able to provide the power needed to run the ship.
ME3000 Series Ion Energizer:
The ME3000 Series Ion Energizer is a small power generator designed to power small craft like shuttles and fighters. These energizers are replacing all of the older solar energizers as they are now obsolete. These new units can power all systems used on all small craft, from sublight, life-support to weapons and now shields. These generators vary in size, and some craft will need more then one to operate.
Fusion Battery Cell:
A Fusion Battery Cell is a small Solar Battery that is hooked up to solar arrays, this of course does not provide as much power as an Energizer and is mostly used as a backup power supply for fighters an shuttles. It can provide a fighter enough power to keep its ARS (Air-Recycle System) up and running for 24 hours. It also depends on how many batteries are equipped on the craft, more batteries more power.
TITAN-I Mass Fusion Driver:
The TITAN-I Series Fusion Driver is a capital ship drive system designed for large warships and vessels. Using power from a ships fusion reactors, Fusion Drivers channel that power into usable energy via expelling it through external vents. The expelling of the energy creates thrust and can move a ship through space.
ARGO-III Fusion Driver:
The ARGO-III Series Fusion Driver is a smaller version of the TITAN-I Driver, and is commonly used on smaller warships and vessels as a means of backup propulsion or main propulsion.
TALON 600 Series Hyper-Pulse Driver:
The TALON 600 Series Hyper-Pulse Driver is a new form of small craft sublight and atmospheric engine. These new engines provide thrust for fighters and other small craft via rapid release of pulse energy from the engine emitters. This rapid release creates the thrust needed, it is also a very fast drive and will give fighters an extra boost to out run enemy fighters in combat. This drive works in both vacuum and in atmosphere.
Repulser Drive Unit:
The Repulser Drive Unit is another means of allowing craft to take off and land on a planet. Repulser Drives use a strong Magnetic field to negate the affects of a planetary gravity well, this allows the craft to lift off without needing high amounts of thrust and power.
Micro Ion Thruster:
The Micro Ion Thruster is a small variant of the MAYA Series Ion Driver, they were designed for the Warhammer project as a backup drive unit.
RCS or Reaction Control System is a series of small Hyper Pulse Thrusters that are used to control the pitch and yaw of a vessel, craft or fighter. They are not powerful enough to fully move a large ship, but can change the direction of it. RCS's is something that all space craft need to maneuver in zero gravity. On fighters RCS's give the craft its mobility in dogfighters and allow it to be agility.
FASTER THEN LIGHT:
Hyperlight Jump Drive Mk.V:
The Hyperlight Jump Drive is the main means of Faster then Light travel for the Terran Federation. Compared to other nations FTL's, the Hyperlight is no where as advance but it gets the job done. Sometimes referred to as a Hyperspace Generator or Jump Drive, the Hyperlight Jump Drive is a large energy converter that converts energy stored in capacitors and turns it into a quantum field that surrounds a ship, this field "moves" the ship into hyperspace without tearing a hole in subspace. Though it is a bit slower then other methods, the Terran Federation can jump from one system to the next in about 4 hours depending on the distance. The Hyperlight is limited to jumps within the Galaxy limit and can not be used to travel to another galaxy.
Hyperlight Micro Jump Drive Mk.I:
The Hyperlight Micro Jump Drive is a smaller version of the Capital ship unit, this smaller unit was designed for the Warhammer Project as part of a test to see if small craft can use Faster then Light travel. This drive is limited by the crafts power, and can jump within 5 light years. Anything beyond that is out of range.
D-001 ANTI-AIRCRAFT BATTERY:
The D-001 Anti-Aircraft is a small deployable weapon system designed to track and intercept fast aircraft and gunships. It has a fast tracking sensor array that can track high speed aircraft, and slower gunships and transports. It is armed with two 60mm Vulcan Pulse AAA Cannons, these cannons can punch right through aircraft armor and can even be configured for flak firing for greater coverage. The D-001 can be controlled from the on board computer or a remote station.
D-002 ANTI-PERSONNEL BATTERY:
The D-002 Anti-Personnel Battery is another Deployable Drone Weapon System designed to handle ground troops and light vehicles. It is mostly used for protecting base camps and other tactical locations. Using similar technology as in the D-001 AA Battery, the D-002 AP Battery doesn't need as advance software to track moving targets as troops and vehicles move much slower then aircraft. It is armed with a single 35mm Auto Cannon, it can fire up to 400 rounds per minute and tear apart ground troops in seconds. It fires the standard Armor Piercing rounds that most Terran weaponry fire and has light titanium armor plating for protection. These batteries are often placed in pairs or sets of four for better coverage and stopping power. It has an optimal range of around 850 meters.
D-003 ANTI-ARMOR BATTERY:
The D-003 Anti-Armor Battery is another Drone Weapon System designed to handle ground vehicles like tanks or Mechs. The D-003 is built almost the same way as a D-002 AP Battery and has the same targeting computer installed in it. Armed this time with a powerful 8 barrel Rocket Propelled Grenade Launcher System, this emplacement and turn a battle tank into a smoking pile of debris in a few shots. It has enough room inside the ammo storage for 24 High Explosive Grenades or 24 Napalm Grenades. It has thicker armor then the others so it can handle a few more hits, and is placed in groups of three with AA and AP batteries nearby. The D-003 can fire all its grenade in under one minute and can reload in 20 seconds.
D-004 ARTILLERY BATTERY:
The D-004 Artillery Battery is an automated long range gun system designed by the same team that made the other Deployable Batteries. Featuring a long range targeting system and trajectory sensors, the D-004 can hit targets up to 16 kilometers away and send continuous bombardments of explosive shells. Armed with a deadly 50mm Long Range Gauss Cannon, the D-004 can carry a number of high explosive rounds or armor piercing shells. Its ammo tank can hold 20 shells, and it can fire them at 10 shells per minute. It is lightly armored to withstand hand weapon fire, but can be taken out by heavier weapons like rockets or tank cannons.
D-005 MISSILE BATTERY:
The D-005 Missile Battery is the last in the Drone Weapon System, it was designed as a long range bombardment weapon with the ability to launch multiple missiles and take out large groups of enemy targets or to strike at an enemy base to weaken their defenses. Using advance tracking sensors, each missile can be locked onto a different target or all to one target. Armed with 18 Longbow missiles, the D-005 can cause heavy damage to vehicles, buildings and anything else that gets in their way. The D-005 has to be air dropped into position and then set up. It can also be manually fired via a small console on the back. The D-005 has little armor and their for is much lighter without missiles, and marines can simple carry it back to a reloading station or base once it has been fired.

Wolverine-Mk.I Assault Mech:
The Wolverine is a light Assault Mech unit designed to be a mobile infantry assault platform. Standing at just over 8 feet high, the Wolverine is mostly used to help support marines in combat. It is armed with two 60mm Vulcan Pulse Cannons that will ripped right through infantry and light vehicles. It has light trinium armor plating which will protect it from all small arms fire and heavier weapons like missiles for a short while.
Raider-Mk.I Assault Mech: (General Arks Personal Mech)
The Raider is a Heavy assault unit that is best used to take out large numbers of enemy troops, vehicles and other mechs on a battlefield. Its armaments include two Gauss Cannons Mk.IV, two Longbow Tactical Missiles Mk.XIV (one located on each shoulder), and four Vulcan Pulse Cannon Mk.XI located near the cockpit. The armor is heavy almost as good as a capital ships armor which makes it slightly slower mech than most standard but can take one hell of a beating. The Raider was only made for General Ark and to this date no more are on order for the Marine Core.
Goliath-I Battle Mech:
The Goliath is a medium battle mech unit designed as a tank suppressor in the field. Manned by one pilot or marine, the Goliath is faster and smaller then the Raider Mech. It is armed with two 85mm Gatling Cannons to take on tanks and other armored vehicles. It also has a smaller 50mm Vulcan Pulse Cannons for Infantry support and two longbow missile racks on the back for air support. The Goliath features medium Trinium armor plating for defense from heavy weapons fire.
Knight-I Battle Mech:
The Knight is another Battle Mech that is designed to be the Terran Federations main battle unit on the field. This mech is slightly slower then the Goliath but has better weaponry and armor so it can deal with bigger threats. It is manned by two marines or pilots. It is armed with a 85mm Gatling Cannon for anti-armor and anti-infantry, a 60mm Vulcan Pulse Cannon for added anti-armor support and a single Longbow missile pod for attacking bases. It has medium trinium armor for defense.
Titan-Mk.I Artillery Mech:
The Titan is a heavy artillery and anti-tank Mech designed to take out large vehicles like tanks or bunkers and do that all from a long range to avoid counter attack. The Titan is slow at moving, but its main cannon can punch a clean hole through some of the strongest armor known. Its main weapon is a 220mm Rail Cannon, similar to that used on warships but much smaller. The Rail cannon can fire depleted fusion shells, high explosive shells or a standard kinetic round. For secondary weapons, the Titan carries two anti-air Vulcan Pulse Cannons and a single Vulcan Pulse cannon to deal with ground troops and fast vehicles. The armor on the Titan is very strong, it can withstand multiple missile and heavy weapon attacks before breaking. It can also absorb a moderate amount of energy weapon fire from tanks and aerial craft. A crew of two operate and drive the Titan, one is the driver while the other handles the weapon and targeting systems.
Thor-Mk.II Siege Mech:
The Thor-Mk.II is an upgrade of the Mk.I Siege Mech, the Mk.II has improved armor and targeting systems as well as added AA defenses. The Thor is a heavy base bombardment mech, designed to take out and destroy enemy bases or large groups of slow moving vehicles. Armed with the most heaviest weaponry every placed on a ground vehicle, the Thor has two twin 240mm Rail Cannons on each arm. Four large Mortar cannons on the top that launch both standard explosive shells or napalm shells. Four smaller Mortar Cannons that support the larger ones with just smaller shells. Two 80mm Vulcan Pulse cannons to deal with vehicles and tanks, and two AA Vulcan Pulse cannons on the top to protect the mech from aerial attacks. The armor on the Thor is very heavy, and makes the mech slow on the ground. The armor is almost as strong as Warship hull plating and can protect it from both projectile and energy based weaponry. The Thor is operated by four marines or pilots, one drive, one main weapon officer, one secondary weapon officer and one support crew member.
Bahamut-I Fortress Defender Tank:
The Bahamut is a new type of heavy tank designed to be a support tank for the Mobile Fortress. The Bahamut comes heavily armed to deal with tanks, mechs and anything else that might threaten the Mobile Fortress. It is armed with a heavy missile turret, it carries 9 Longbow missiles. It also has 4 70mm Vulcan Pulse Cannons for main defense and 8 30mm Vulcan Pulse Cannons for anti-personnel defense. It also has 4 Mortar cannons for medium range bombardment. It has heavy trinium armor to withstand heavy attacks from other vehicles and weapons. The tank is crewed by 6, one driver, two main gunners, 2 secondary gunners and one engineer.
Hydra-I Siege Tank:
The Hydra is a Siege tank, similar to that of the Thor Siege mech. The Hydra is designed to take out enemy vehicles and bases before the enemy can respond. The Hydra has two modes, a tank mode and a artillery cannon mode or siege mode. In tank mode, the main cannon is compacted and has a shorter range.

The SIR-150 features an advance tactical sighting system that can be switched to night vision, thermal and 40x optical zoom. It fires a large 16mm round that can hit targets inside armored objects like tanks or bunkers easier. It has a 4 round clip, this is due to the bullets large size. The SIR-150 also has an optimal range of 2500 meters, making it one of the longest ranged weapons.
* Improved Tactical Sight System (with new X-ray sensor for looking through light armor and walls.)
Standard Issue Marine Combat Knife:
The Combat Knife is part of the standard marine core weapon load out for any marine. Featuring a strong poly-carbon grip and a light weight titanium blade, the Combat knife is a perfect hand to hand combat weapon.
F-10 Frag Grenade:
The F-10 is a standard issue fragmentation grenade, designed to clear rooms or thin down enemy lines. It has timer settings for 5, 10, 15 and 20 second fuses and works like all recent grenades in human history by a simple pull of the pin and lobbing it.
F-11 Smoke Grenade:
The F-11 is a smoke cover grenade and is used to make cover in open areas or to clear out a room using non-lethal force. It has a timer for 5 and 10 seconds and has enough smoke inside for 30 seconds worth. The smoke is non-toxic and comes would a dark grey or can be mixed with color agents to be used as signal smoke.
F-9X EMP Grenade:
The F-9X is an electro-magnetic pulse grenade that is widely used to disable vehicles or anything with a power source. It can be set to go off as soon as it hits a solid object or after a timer fuse of 10, or 20 seconds goes by. The area of affect is under 10 meters
C-4 Explosive Charge:
The C-4 charge is an explosive breaching charge used to clear doors or walls, or destroy an important target. One of these is strong enough to tear apart a standard titanium door, and several can do even more damage to buildings or armored targets.
M-5 Anti-Personnel Mine:
The M-5 Anti-Personnel mine is a proximity mine that can be set up as traps for enemy troops or are sometimes used as a light breaching charge when C-4 is too powerful. It has a sensor that will go off if someone enters with in 1 meter of the device.
M-7 Anti-Tank Mine:
The M-7 anti-tank mine is a pressure mine used to help clear out vehicles like tanks or APC's and rockets or missiles won't work. The M-7 is placed under the target or on the ground and goes off when enough pressure is applied or can be remotely detonated. The mine will send fragments into the vehicle from the underside where their is less armor, destroying vital components and injuring the men inside or killing them.
G-2 Portable Scanner Unit:
The G-2 portable scanner is a mobile sensor unit for marines to use, it relies target and other data down from an orbiting ship, station or fightercraft. It can detect metal readings from tanks and vehicles or can be tuned to find heat readings from people. It has an effective range of only 9000 meters.
G-3X Portable Sensor Jammer Unit:
The G-3X is a portable sensor jammer device, similar to those used on stealth fighters and other larger craft. Designed to send out a field that will disrupt all known sensors and scanner detection gear. It has been fitted into a backpack style device which houses the Sensor jammer, a small computer to calibrate the device and a power cell that has two hours worth of energy for the device. Since the G-3X disrupts all known sensor technology, this includes Terran sensors and the G-2 portable scanner. The casing of the G-3X is covered in a thermal masking gel, as the device can create heat from operation. Right now, only a few are being produced and will need to have testing in the field before more a made.

ORBITAL DROP POD: An Orbital Drop Pod or OPD is a quick transit vehicle for a special forces unit known as the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers or ODST. It can be launched from any craft with a hanger bay. They are meant to drop in marines into hot spots without risking larger dropships. They can carry up to 8 ODST in full combat gear, and are not designed as a return vehicle.
DROPSHIP: A Dropship is a type of craft that carries marines and or vehicles to a landing size on planets for combat operations or boarding actions. The Terran Federation uses a heavy dropship to bring troops and vehicles from orbiting warships to planet surfaces. A second smaller craft is used to transport a smaller number of marines that was designed for boarding actions and special operation missions.
SHUTTLECRAFT: Shuttlecraft are personnel transport craft mostly used for short range transport of personnel from a station to ship or ship to ship or ship to ground. The Federation has two types of Shuttlecraft in service. The Atlantis Class is a large personnel furry craft designed to transport officers and crew from ships to stations and vice versa. The Jade Class is a light military multi-role craft mostly used for transporting high ranking officers like Admirals or Generals and ambassadors. They can also be used as AWACS or ECM craft.
BOMBER: Bombers are new types of heavy fighters used by the Federation to help handle with escort craft and space stations. Only one type of bomber is made for the Federation and that is the Warhammer Type. Bombers are slow, heavily armed and armored craft that carry deadly payloads to take out enemy escorts like frigates or destroyers. In large enough groups and disable heavier warships.
STARFIGHTER: Starfighters are designed to be space borne interceptors, that means they operate in space only and can not transit into atmospheric flight. Starfighters are often deployed to star bases and deep space patrol vessels where Atmospheric flight is not needed as much. Using micro thrusters and RCS's Starfighters can maneuver easily in space as a Aero fighter can in Atmosphere.
AEROFIGHTER: Aerofighters are a new type of fighter craft, after the success of the Lightning Type and its ability to enter atmosphere the Federation wanted to design more of these Aerofighters. Several more were placed in production and now are placed on board most warships in the fleet. Aerofighters can operate in both space and atmosphere but are designed to work best in Atmo
TERRAN FEDERATION SPACE NAVY:
SHIPS OF THE LINE - NAVAL CAPITAL SHIP CLASSES:
Capital Ship Page
DREADNOUGHT: Terran Federation Dreadnoughts are big and tough warships. Scaling in over 13 kilometers long, the Orion Class is the currently Dreadnought in the Navy. Well armed to handle any fight and can carry enough fighters and support craft to land troops on planets or engage swarms of enemy fighters. Dreadnoughts cost a lot to build and are a rare sight on the battlefield.
Current Dreadnoughts: 4 Under Construction: 2 Number Planned: 50
BATTLESHIP: Battleships are designed with one thing in mind, to destroy the enemy. The new Victory Class handles this role well with its many types of weapons and heavy defenses. The Victory class doesn't carry fighters, this helps to increase weapon load out and power requirements. Battleships do carry a small number of support craft to aid in boarding operations or planetary attacks. Battleships are often seen as Command ships in fleets or Task Forces.
Current Battleships: 6 Under Construction: 2 Number Planned: 50
BATTLECRUISER: Battlecruisers are battleship/carrier hybrid vessels that do both roles very well. The current Battlecruiser is the Triton Class and was the first second generation warship out of the construction yards. Armed well enough to handle enemy fleets and carrying enough fighters and support to wage a good size ground war. The decision was made to combine battleships and carriers after it was costing to much to construct a ship that was just a carrier and a ship that was just a battleship. So the Battlecruiser was born and will serve the Federation for many years.
Current Battlecruisers: 12 Under Construction: 6 Number Planned: 100
CRUISER: Cruisers are multi-role vessels like the Battlecruiser and Dreadnought but in a much more compact vessel. Half the size of the Triton, the Icarus Class Cruiser is made for deep space patrols and combat duties. Well armed and defended, Icarus Classes are the main ship for the Terran Federation and will be produced in large numbers.
Current Cruisers: 40 Under Construction: 40 Number Planned: 300
DESTROYER: Destroyers are mid-sized fleet support ships, they offer defense from fighters, and smaller threats that the larger ships might need help against. There are two classes of Destroyers made for the Terran Federation. The Dauntless Class is made for fleet defense and light ship engagements. The Aries Class was made for anti-fighter defense and patrol duties. Destroyers offer better speed and mobility then larger ships and can still carry a decent number of fighter craft.
Current Destroyers: 60 Dauntless Classes 62 Aries Classes Under Construction: 10 Dauntless Classes 10 Aries Classes Number Planned: 620 Dauntless Classes 650 Aries Classes
FRIGATE: Frigates are light defense vessels made for escort duty and support ships for larger fleets. They are armed lightly to deal with pirates or raiders. There are two Classes of Frigates in the Terran Federation. The Hood Class is a missile frigate and light escort vessel. The Tempest Class is a light escort duty vessel that is designed to support larger ships during engagements. Frigates are fast and nimble vessels, able to catch up with enemy fleets faster. Frigates also made good anti-fighter interceptors as they are mostly armed to deal with fighters or lightly warships.
Current Frigates: 70 Hood Classes 70 Tempest Classes Under Construction: 30 Hood Classes 30 Tempest Classes Number Planned: 1200 Hood Classes 1400 Tempest Classes
SPECIAL VESSELS - SPECIAL SHIP CLASSES:
Special Vessels Page
DIPLOMATIC HEAVY CRUISER: As part of the new Diplomatic Corps of the Federation, a new Class of ship was developed to be used by them. A Heavy Cruiser that could be configured for a wide array of roles and duties. Such duties include deep space exploration, scientific research and Diplomatic roles. The Caduceus Class is such vessel, a bit larger then the Icarus the Caduceus Class follows a similar design to that of the older Hyperion Battleship. Though lightly armed for defense only, the Caduceus can be refitted to be a warship if needed. If does hanger space for fighters and support craft, but normally this is converted into labs and guest quarters. The Caduceus is also being used as a Colony ship and civilian transport vessel.
Current Heavy Cruisers: 20 Under Construction: 0 Number Planned: 20
COMMAND FRIGATE: After designing the Mobile Fortress known as the Fist of Khan, a new Class of vessel needed to be built in order to carry this Behemoth around the Galaxy. The Legacy Class is a small Frigate Class vessel that has been built with a very large single hanger pod on the bottom. Used only to carry the Fist around, it has light armaments to defend herself from hostiles.
Current Command Frigates: 1 Under Construction: 0 Number Planned: 1
STEALTH CORVETTE: With the expansion of the Federation, and newly formed Federation Naval Intelligence, the Federation needed a ship that could be used to keep tabs on their enemies. Stealth technology is something new that the Terran's have developed over the years. The Phantom Class is a small Corvette Type vessel that is fast and very maneuverable then any other ship in the Federation. Though it is poorly armed and defended, the Phantom was built with combat not in mind. It has been fitted with a number of systems to keep her under the Radar as it is used to spy on enemy nations, and watch the border.
Current Stealth Corvettes: 14 Under Construction: 0 Number Planned: 14
