Exthra Military Concepts Designs Corporation unveil the latest in ICC Stellar Craft
Exathra, CD-36*15693 (ICCNN) - Today Exthra Military Concepts Designs, Corporation has unveiled two new lines of starfighter craft and system upgrades to the veteran F-29.
Chief Design Engineer Dr. Joshua Gideon stated, "These new fighter craft will be a great asset to the Confederation fleets. With the performance and structural upgrades to the veteran Steelhead series and addition of the Gamma interceptor and Annihilator bomber to the fleet we shall see unsurpassed naval superiority."
|4.1 F-29 Steelhead
A recent upgrade of the older model M-7 Fighter, the ICC F-29 Steelhead has received extensive structural reinforcement, targeting and weapons system upgrades, as well as improvements to the older, Type 5 Fighter Engine system. The craft is covered with a layer of superdense yet flexible and light ceramic polymer armor, and covered with a slight reflective sheen to partially deflect laser fire. The F-29 carries three Missile Launcher mounts for use against Capital Ships, and two Cannon mounts for use against smaller targets. Able to fly on its own power at a max speed of 35g.u per second, and with an acceleration and maneuverability rating only surpassed by the FI-8 Gamma Interceptor, the F-29 takes its role as the premier Assault Class fighter craft for the ICC Navy.
|4.2 XB-11 Annihilator
The XB-11 Annihilator is the first class of long-range fighter craft designed for the expressed purpose of planet liberation. Actually modeled on an old civilian shuttle intended for long range travels, Exathra Concepts and Designs saw the potential in the high capacity and fuel efficiency of the shuttle, and redesigned it into a fine military craft. The ship was heavily armored and outfitted with the sole purpose of it being able to attack stationary targets with utmost efficiency and deadliness. As such, the XB-11 is almost devoid of any type of weapons whatsoever. It does however, carry a bomb bay with substantial capacity, and is almost always filled to the brim with ICC anti-planetary weapons, capable of devastating planetary surfaces. With far larger fuel capacity than that of the Steelhead and Gamma fighters, the XB-11 is able to traverse relatively great distances across space, and as such, is able to strike at enemy planets or installations without the Carrier ships having to get close to the intended target, possibly making themselves vulnerable for a counterattack.
|4.3 FI-8 Gamma
A radical redesign of the decades old M-7 model, the FI-8 Gamma Interceptor is the fastest and most agile of all the ICC Fighters. Though not as heavily armored as the XB-11, and not as offensively strong as the F-29, the FI-8 still has found its place in the front lines of the ICC Navy, where commanders rely on its speed and agility to intercept and destroy incoming missiles, fighters, and other, fast moving threats. Outfitted with a low power Pulse Beam, as well as double cannon mounts, this craft is perfect for the job of dispatching fast moving craft.
