    Description
    The Royal Garfield Astroyards’ (RGA) Assault Carrier EC-543 “Mama Blue" Class is an Assault strike craft carrier of the size of an Escort carrier. With its, at the time, experimental JUMP Drive, the EC-543 was intended to Jump close to enemy positions and attack with its strike crafts before the closest enemy ships could respond. Then, Jump back out.

    To make the lightning fast assault deadly, the Assault Carrier EC-543 “Mama Blue" can carry more than 20 strike crafts at a time. It has both 2 internal hangers and 2 external strike craft racks for attack fighters and bombers. Some criticize its capacity compared to the EC-479 “Shepard" which was almost half its size. However, the extra room of the EC-543 facilitates the better operational efficiency which compensates for its drawbacks. The EC-479s were always seen as being cramped. The extra room in the internal hangers alone speeds up the ship’s capability for arming and repairing crafts. These crafts can launch and land via the Top runway under the guidance of the flight control tower. In addition to its strike crafts, the EC-543 carries 8 CMM-29B Anti-ship missiles for attack and defense. These missiles can be launched and remotely guided from the bridge.
    [​IMG]
    For defense, there are fixed Gatling and missile turrets in addition to the defense drone turrets (G-Type Drones, M-Type Drones). These drone turrets are repurposed defense drone sentries attached to the ship via connectors. This is a characteristic of the small tonnage RGA ships. This is done to provide flexibility in defense placement and avoid laying out supply conveyors throughout the ship. RCA just attached the drone sentries on the hulls of its ships. The downside of this is that one has to detach the drone sentries by remote control and bring it in for resupply like the fighters.
    [​IMG]
    The EC-543 has an extra cargo / crew pod attached to its bottom. According to its role, the EC-543 “Mama Blue" was intended to act on its own for significant periods without support. So, the extra cargo capacity comes in handy. The extra cryopods relieve the stress on the environmental systems and supplies by putting unnecessary personnel in cryo-sleep. This is important as the EC-543 lacks oxygen generators. Additional cryopods are in the front of the hull. It also has solar power generation, a refinery, and an assembler.

    History
    The Royal Garfield Astroyards’ (RGA) Assault Carrier EC-543 “Mama Blue" Class is an interesting case of retrofitting preexisting non-military ships for combat purposes. The base of the ship is an X-193 “Blue” JUMP exploration vessel produced by Kramer, Edinburgh, Eyre, and Newman (K.E.E.N.) Electronic. The X-193 “Blue” is unique for the fact that it was one of the first commercially produced JUMP capable ship even though only 8 were ever produced. This is because they were meant to test the practical operation and applications of the new technology.

    As the wind of war swept along, there were heavy demands for JUMP capable military ships. However, proper dedicated designs were still on the drawing table. As a stop-gap measure, six X-193 were transferred to Royal Garfield Astroyards (RGA) in order to retrofit them to act as military ships. RGA went about this by cannibalizing two EC-479s, their escort carriers, still on the factory floor and bolting on their components to X-193s. This is how the Assault Escort Carrier EC-543 “Mama Blue" was born. Only six were made.

    For their humble origins, the EC-543s performed quite well in their role as solo Assault Carrier. They would jump in and release fury before jumping out of the combat zone. Only death was left behind. In following years, the EC-543 was further retrofitted with a second JUMP drive to extend its range and speed up recharge time as a consequence of two EC-543s being lost in combat. However, the EC-543 was always intended as stop-gap measure. This success of EC-543 led to the RGA releasing a successor to the EC-543 which was designed as an upgrade but without the X-193 part.

    Utility Crafts: 1x PS-46pe “Seafare” personnel shuttle
    Other Features: 360 rotating camera scope


    Description
    The Royal Garfield Astroyards’ (RGA) EC-479 “Shepard " Class escort carrier is a small tonnage- long range combat carrier most commonly utilized as escorts for supply convoys or solo-raiders on enemy outposts or shipping. While ships of its class can be seen in large fleet actions, they are mostly included as support ships guarding the flanks and rear as they are not design for slugging matches with battleships. The EC-479 is a fighter and bomber carrier with limited armor and dedicated offensive weapons. It is staffed by 35 plus flight crew and mechanics plus 15 or more combat pilots.
    [​IMG]
    In terms of combat capabilities, the EC-479 can carry more than 20 small combat crafts at a time in addition to a PS-46pe “Seafare” non-combat personnel shuttle. These combat crafts can be carried on an exposed craft carriage or inside the hanger. Considering the limited space constraints of the internal hanger, it is more common for the exposed craft carriage to be used in normal operations. The internal hanger is mostly used to arm the combat crafts, conduct repairs, and carry valuable specialized combat vehicle in addition to a utility mover to taxi crafts and supply around.

    To accommodate its long range operational design objective, the EC-479 has ample storage space for its size, solar power generation, a refinery, and an assembler. It has a rec room and several numbers of cryopods which the crew can use in rotation while off duty. What it does lack is an oxygen generator. This does limit the range of the EC-479 and warrants careful rationing of oxygen at all times. With limited use for hydrogen, mostly with fighter booster units, the EC-479 has a limited storage capability for hydrogen.

    While the mechanics are at their jobs, all other operations are control by the flight crew from either the upper or lower bridges. The former is for the captain while the lower bridge is tasked with basic operation and flight control. From here, one can activate the blast doors to cover the exposed window in combat. From, here, one can control the launch of fighters from the craft carriage or the inside hanger. One can also guide bombers to land on the runway. You can also activate the ship’s weapons and defenses.
    [​IMG]
    Other than its complement of combat crafts, the EC-479 carries 4 CMM-29B Anti-ship missiles which can be launched and remotely guided from the lower bridge. However, these are used sparingly for emergency. Bombers are preferable when time permits. There are fixed Gatling and missile turrets in addition to the defense drone turrets (G-Type Drones, M-Type Drones). These drone turrets are repurposed defense drone sentries attached to the ship via connectors. This is a characteristic of the small tonnage RGA ships. This is done to provide flexibility in defense placement and avoid laying out supply conveyors throughout the ship. RCA just attached the drone sentries on the hulls of its ships. The downside of this is that one haw to detach the drone sentries by remote control and bring it in for resupply like the fighters.

    Overall, Escort Carrier EC-479 “Shepard " is quite of capable tittle carrier for its cost. It quite flexible and dangerous when it needs to be.
    [​IMG]
    History
    As a predominant ship builder for the mid-systems, Royal Garfield Astroyards (RGA) has produced many great ship designs. The EC-479 “Shepard” Class escort carrier is one of them considering the fact that they were produced for decades since the first ship rolled off the yards. Initially designed as a solo-raider of shipping and outposts, RGA changed its objectives halfway through the design process as the competition for that market became over crowded. The project was redirected to fill the demand for defensive fighter carriers for convoys which had been rising within the mid-systems and outer systems. This required the reduction of cost to produce. So, RCA gave up on the general use of heavy armor and use it economically. This also resulted in the capacity of the hanger area being reduced and an exposed craft carriage was placed under the runway to compensate for this tradeoff. In addition, many of the systems were repurposed from other designs such as the defense drone sentries which RCA has contracted to be supplied with for decades.
    [​IMG]
    With its lower price tag, the EC-479 “Shepard” Class escort carrier became a best seller through the human space with not only governments buying them but many merchant corporation were also purchasing these ship albeit second and third hand.

    Interceptor I-4 “Thunder" (Vanilla)
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1251822422

    Classification: Interceptor
    Registration: I-4 “Thunder"
    Manufacturer: Interstellar Military Systems –Small Crafts division
    Nation of Origin: Earth stellar union
    Planet of Origin: P11a “Earth Delta”
    Year of First Model Rollout: 166 IA
    Crew Complement: 1 (Pilot)
    Drone Mode: No
    Armaments: 12 x Gatling Guns
    Special Features: Afterburner


    Description
    Interstellar Military Systems’ (IMS) I-4 “Thunder" is Interceptor design utilizing the company’s distinctive Vertical design approach which differs from the mainstream Horizontal design approach when it comes to spacecraft. As a small military craft, the I-4 is masterfully design system balancing all the needs of an interceptor. Its high output propulsion system that includes a powerful afterburner enables it to catch up to incoming fighters and bombers far from their intended targets. It has a high performance flight system which makes the craft very nimble in term of maneuverability. This means that it can extended the window of contact between the craft and its target. Its 12 deadly Gatling Guns takes full advantage of that window to make a kill before the prey can either escape or counter attack.

    With interceptors, it is standard for them to be lightly armored. They use their speed to increase survivability rather than armor. With the I-4, compared to other designs of its class, the frontal armor is heavier which increases its survivability during initial contact. After that, the I-4 can use its afterburners to escape the combat zone before turning back for another kill. The drawback of the I-4 is its demand for power. Even though its reactors are high output for a small craft, their underpowered for the need of the I-4 is high maneuvering or when using its afterburner. As a result, the I-4 depends on its stored battery power for those power heavy situations.

    History
    Produced by one of the major military conglomerate “Interstellar Military Systems” (IMS), the I-4 “Thunder" is the premier Interceptor design of its age. The I-4 “Thunder” is not only premier in performance but also price. It is priced at least 3 times more than the FI-223 “Wedge” which is the outer systems’ low-cost interceptor. This should not be a surprise as the IMS is not known for cost effective products. However, as a result of the quality of their products and relationships built up with key governments, this has not harmed the company in terms of sales. Their products are in high demand. In fact, IMS seems to be consistently back logged with orders and not hurt as a result of those delays.

    The I-4 “Thunder” is no exception. It is a highly sought after interceptor of many governments. Even the outer systems who cannot afford IMS’ products fight over second hand I-4s whenever they come on the market. Considering even second hand I-4s are not cheap, this is a good example of the I-4s reputation. Luckily, IMS tends to release slightly updated version of the I-4 every few years and many of the richer government have contract to purchase those upgrades. Thus, the steady supply of second hand I-4s mean that one can find I-4s pretty much in any space force although in the hands of elite pilots.

    -Hydrogen Boosters
    -Cross blade Transformation system

    Description
    Interstellar Military Systems’ Area Superiority Fighter SF-81 “Anvil" utilizes the company’s distinctive Vertical design approach to create a deadly heavy fighter; an “anvil” of death to lighter armed ships and installations! This is delivered by the SF-81’s “Cross Blade” system of 40 x Gatling Guns and 48 x Rocket Launchers. In normal navigation mode, the cross blade are closed which only leaves the Gatling Guns active to combat fighters support by the rear Gatling turret. When the cross blades are open, Rocket Launchers become active. Thus, the SF-81 can shower its targets with a hailstorm of bullets and rockets.
    Beyond its offensive powers, the SF-81 “Anvil" is plated with heavy armor in its frontal and side areas. The rear is relatively lightly armored which is compensated by the Rear Gatling Turret. A key feature of the Anvil’s defensive capability is an attachable DU-24a Mk 2 Decoy Launcher. This decoy system scatters decoys every 2+ seconds is a forward facing circle making the Anvil safe from automatic weapon turrets. When using the Decoy Launcher, it is best to approach the target slowly and facing it. Then, activate the launcher just as you enter the enemy turrets’ range; 800 meters or so. To get a good scattering of decoys, it is best to stay in the 600~700 meter range from the target and orbit it while keep facing the target. This creates a nice spread of decoys, protects the launcher from fire, and let one keep firing on the target.
    Once you have done what you have came to do, it is recommended the SF-81 back out of weapons range facing the target if that target is still active. Then, exit the combat zone to avoid fire from more maneuverable fighters. In order to enter and exit combat zones fast, the SF-81 “Anvil" has hydrogen boosters which should be used sparingly as the supply of hydrogen is limited. Overall, the Interstellar Military Systems’ Area Superiority Fighter SF-81 “Anvil" is a deadly specialized small craft that worth a single penny of the hefty price tag.

    History
    From the makers of the I-4 “Thunder, “Interstellar Military Systems” (IMS), one would expect the Area Superiority Fighter SF-81 “Anvil" to be successor of the I-4 with its better power system and advanced weapon system. Comparably, the I-4 is a stripped down design. And you would be right; only partially right. The I-4 “Thunder is a design spun out the of the SF-81 “Anvil" project. However, it was put in to production years earlier as the 81 project was experiencing problems with its power systems. Not only that but the overall performance of the early 81 design was underwhelming for the project’s objectives. The project was intended to create a high cost specialized product that could single handily disable a small capital ship without the need for support or resupply over the short term.
    The I-4 was a successful attempt to compensate for the loss of profit from 81’s delays. And it worked! It brought in a large and steady flow of cash to the company. What was learned from the I-4 was then, put back into the SF-81 project. In 182 IA, the first units of SF-81 “Anvil" were delivered to customers. While, for the following decades, the SF-81 “Anvil" was a consistent seller, it did not outperform the I-4. The SF-81 was a very expensive specialized fighter whose purpose was fulfilled by corvettes in some navies.

    Description
    From the interstellar HOUSE OF LOGISTICS, DaePak Logistic Vehicles Co. LLC (DPV) presents a new star product in their catalog of Military Support Transport Vehicles, the ST-34Bv "Mule". The ST-34Bv "Mule" is the military variant of the T34PC "Elephant" Civilian Transport. While the T34PC "Elephant" is a sturdy, efficient, and cost effected mode of logistics over interstellar distances, the ST-34Bv "Mule" can be seen as an improvement in many ways. It adds more powerful thrusters, more armor, more communications, and more defensive weapons to handle the military’s operational demands.
    [​IMG]
    Like the T34PC "Elephant", the ST-34Bv "Mule" has 6 docking ports that can service most kinds of standardized container pods; Cargo-Pods, Oxygen Pods, hydrogen Pods. However, the ST-34Bv can also handle the transport and deployment of mobile platforms such as the MP-99C “Kite” Shield Type Mobile Platform. These mobile platforms are usually utilized in static fleet combat as extra defenses. Since these mobile platforms can be operated either manually or by remote, the ST-34Bv "Mule" has powerful communication systems and command & control systems. These are handled separately from navigation which is handled by a single pilot. And by 6 communications officers from their separate C&C Room.
    [​IMG]
    In addition to being a taxi service for mobile platforms or cargo, the ST-34Bv "Mule" can act as long-distance troop transport, act as a field hospital with its medical facilities and cyro-pods; act as a field resupply ship or recharge ship via its docking ports. In some cases, missile pods were docked to the ST-34Bv for it to act as a missile frigate. Overall, this ship is a high degree of versatility that provides operational flexibility for its owner. In war, flexibility is precious after all!

    Description
    The Mobile Platform MP-203AA "Pinecone" is a Mobile Platform manufactured to provide additional Anti-Air Defense for capital ships or ships in fleet formation. Its armaments include Missile and Gatling Turrets. While capable of self-propulsion and navigation, it is not capable of matching the speed of capital ships while in emergency maneuvering or when in full cruise flight. Thus, it is more suited for fleet formation maneuvering or static deployment. In terms of interstellar travel, it is preferred to have this ship attached to its own specialized carrier or cargo hauler. And it can be remote controlled from its carrier as it is drone mode enabled. It is also able to accommodate a pilot with limited life-support capabilities.

    A unique aspect is that it is only armed in its front facing side while the opposite side consists of retractable panels for easy maintenance. When opened during combat, it has the option to let penetrating force dissipate through its opened panel to lengthen the mobile platform’s operational combat lifespan. Another unique feature is that MP-203AA can be attached to large capital ships via connector or landing gear to act as additional armor for that capital ship.

    History
    Until the rollout of the Mobile Platform MP-203AA "Pinecone", Yong-In Construction & Engineering Inc. or Yong-In C & E was known primarily as a planet based construction company with its headquarter on P232-Cq “New Yong-San”. It had previously made attempts to get into the Astro- Engineering market but nothing really made a splash in the industry as the market was dominated by companies located in larger core sectors. New Yong-San was a planet located in a not very wealthy sector.

    This changed as a consequence of the conflict between the Alpha Gamma front and the Stellar Rose nation. With the defeat of the Alpha Gamma front, the scattered remnants became pirates raiding sectors even far from Alpha Gamma front territory. New Yong-San was one of the planets in the path of these forces and didn’t have the ships to put up a proper defense. The ship builders in the distant core sectors couldn’t supply this demand promptly in addition to the significant price they were charging which was taxing for a moderately developed sector in an outline region. As a result of this sudden situation, Yong-In C & E was given a chance and it came up with MP-203AA "Pinecone" which could be manufactured locally cheap and fast. It made a splash with the governments of New Yong-San and neighboring planets who ordered as much as that could be produced.

    MP-203AA "Pinecone" was cheap, reliable, and easy to maintain. It did the job of providing anti-pirate defense well for its low investment. However, what made MP-203AA "Pinecone" special is the fact that it’s design became the basis for the 311 series of corvettes which would become the mainstay of several outline sectors for decades after its rollout.

    Description
    Missile Corvette "MC-311 Picket" is a Mid-Range Missile Skirmish Corvette intended to scout outside to the fleet and harass enemy capital ships with its 12 Anti-ship missiles “CMM-29B” housed inside its hull. The "MC-311 Picket” is manned by a pilot and a gunner although the pilot can manage both functions in an emergency. Once a target is located, the gunner accesses the remote of a CMM-29B and guides it out of the hull. Then, the gunner points the missile at the target using an onboard camera and pulls the trigger. The missile will then rocket to the target without the need for further attention from the gunner. The “CMM-29B” has a proximity sensor that will detonate the missile even if the missile doesn’t directly hit its target.

    The "MC-311 Picket” has also been used to snipe at enemy capital ships while fleets are in battle. In some small fleet actions, the “Picket” with its turrets has been used as mainstay ships once its missiles have be expended even though its survivability is not high. As a feature, the "MC-311 Picket" has internal retractable panels for easy accessibility and protection. There is also a controllable camera sight to observe the impact the missiles make.

    History
    Missile Corvette "MC-311 Picket" is a member of the 311 series of corvette vessels manufactured by Yong-In Construction & Engineering Inc. Until the role out of MP-203AA "Pinecone", Yong-In Construction & Engineering Inc. or Yong-In C & E was known primarily as a planet based construction company with its headquarter on P232-Cq “New Yong-San”. With the 203’s success, Yong-In C & E had its foot in the door to a lucrative market. There was a mounting demand for ships of various operational functions caused by the increasing threat of pirates in the outer less developed sectors of space resulting from the fallout of an interstellar conflict.

    There was money to be made. A lot of money. The only problem was that Yong-In C & E had never manufactured a full blown spacecraft before. MP-203AA was a mobile platform with limited space faring capabilities. But the base design had a lot of potential. So, Yong-In C & E decided to basically paste two 203s back to back to each other with modifications and the result was the 311 base design. This origin of the 311 design can be seen in the early produced units as they were literally welded together using merge blocks. Later units would remove the merge blocks as dedicated production facilities for the 311s were put online.

    While this approach to designing a multipurpose space faring corvette seem haphazard at first, the 203 design’s potential proved to be a gold mine for Yong-In C & E as the 311 design ended up being the bases for various low cost but versatile ships such as the Missile Corvette "MC-311 Picket". As a major bestseller, the "MC-311 Picket" is seen as the posterchild for the 311 series. This ship and the many other variants of the 311 series would be produced for decades and be seen through the many sectors far from P232-Cq “New Yong-San” in which Yong-In C & E is located on.

    Description
    Originating from the Missile Corvette "MC-311 Picket" design, the AC-313 “Musketeer" is an Artillery Corvette manufactured by Yong-In Construction & Engineering Inc. Its main Armament is a direct fire Gravity Cannon which uses a revolver cartridge to load 4 shells at a time. Of which the 313 can carry a maximum of 44 shells; 10 cartridges (4 Shells each) attached to the outside of the 313’s hull and 1 cartridge loaded in the chamber.

    The main purpose of the AC-313 “Musketeer" is to provide long range attack capability to a fleet with an optimum range between 5~2 Km. The Armor piercing (AP) or High Explosive (HE) shells can do serious damage to most ships. By doing it so, it can soften up enemy ships before they come in contact with one’s close combat ships. This is usually within the range of 1Km. The suggested mode of use for the AC-313s is to bunch them up in a firing line formation combined fighter support in the flanks. Having shield wall ships in front are also recommended. There are a few reasons for this usage.

    First, there is the nature of the gravity cannon which suggests it to be use while being static or with minimal movement. Second, being static makes changing out spent revolver carriages for fresh ones far easier. Third, there is the chamber cover. In order to reload the chamber, the cover needs to be detached from the ship. In normal combat situations, this cover is reattached on the ship in front of the bridge to act as additional armor shield. Thus, visibility and maneuverability is not optimal in this form.
    [​IMG]
    The manual for the AC-313 “Musketeer" recommend the following procedures in combat situations.
    1 Form a battle line with other AC-313s
    2 Detach the chamber cover and attach it in front of the bridge
    3 Pre-detach the amount of ammo from the hull one is expected to use before maneuvering is done again. Lay it out the way it is convenient.
    4 Deploy Gun On Mode
    5 Fire when ready upto 4 shells
    6 Reload & Repeat

    [​IMG]

    When expecting a long engagement, it is handy to have an ammo carrier nearby.
    In sudden close combat situations, the 313 can defend and attack using its Auxiliary Armaments.
    This would be its Missile & Gatling Turrets and Front Rocket Launchers. They come in handy to fend off strike craft and other ships. However, the 313 is not meant for close combat. Quick extraction from the situation is recommended.

    History
    This artillery corvette, AC-313 ” Musketeer" is an evolution of the 311 series of corvette vessels. Of which, the Missile Corvette MC-311 “Picket" is a prime example. As the success of the 312 series filled the coffers of Yong-In Construction & Engineering Inc., the company looked further around the exploit its cash cow. Some more ambitious than others. The Troop transport AT-312 was one of the relatively easier cases. The changes to the initial 311 design was “limited”. In contrary, the AC-313 “Musketeer" was the ambitious one since not only did significant redesign efforts were need on the 311 design but this was the first time the company was dealing with gravity cannons. Even if one purchased the cannon from other companies, the installations were never easy. However, the company was able to roll out the ship within 30 months of the project start date. This is how this was done.
    [​IMG]
    For the forward half of the 313, Yong-In Construction & Engineering Inc. took the hull design of the MC-311 and used it as the barrel of a gravity. The remaining half was built around the revolver chamber with the additional inclusion of the chamber cover which is also used as the bridge’s armor shield in combat situations. This is an interesting design feature of the 313. In the designing stages, there were voices who wanted an exposed chamber to reduce cost and make reloading easier. However, this would have reduced the ship’s viability during long range space travels. In addition, early tests showed that the tower bride of the 313, unlike the lower situated 311’s bridge, was far more vulnerable to enemy artillery. One lucky shot could knock out the bride. While there are secondary controls in the chamber section, this was a problem. So, the cover was used as a compromise solution to both problems.

    Description
    From the manufacturers of GREAT mobile platforms and Corvettes, the Mobile Platform MP-99C “Kite” is manufactured to provide Long Distance Defense of your fleet from enemy Artillery. Using its heavy armor, this mobile platform act as a shield for intercepting incoming enemy fire before your precious get damages. It does not have offensive weapons. However, in close combat, the MP-99C “Kite” are sometimes used as battering rams. This is not recommended but… when things get tough, improvisation is a virtue afterall. In non-combat situations, the MP-99C “Kite” is usually docked on to Transport Carrier such as the ST-34Bv "Mule". In combat situations, the MP-99C “Kite” are deployed in fixed formations in the direction facing the enemy. This can be done either by manual control or remote drone mode control. While not capable of long distance space travel, the MP-99C “Kite” has enough mobility to rapidly change formations or its facing directions.
    [​IMG]
    In addition to heavy armor, the design of the MP-99C “Kite” utilizes multiple layers of light armor with voids between layers to more efficiently absorb damage before fatal operational shut down occurs. In terms of power, the “Kite” uses multiple types of systems as redundancies in case one or more systems were destroyed. These design features increase the survivability of the MP-99C “Kite” in heavy combat situations; not to mention its recovery rate which is quite high.

    Description
    From the interstellar HOUSE OF LOGISTICS, DaePak Logistic Vehicles Co. LLC (DPV) presents the ST-51 "Ox Wagon". The ST-51 "Ox Wagon" is a multipurpose support transport designed for military usage not only in logistics but also defense and even offense.

    Logistics! It has a large internal storage capacity in addition to 8 docking ports capable of attaching large container pods. These ports are capable of resupplying ships from its internal storage and power systems. With its Reactors, Solar, Battery systems, the ST-51 "Ox Wagon" is capable of recharging 8 ships at the same time. This makes the ST-51 "Ox Wagon" a must have for any major military organization.
    [​IMG]
    Defense; Not only is the ST-51 "Ox Wagon" capable of transporting cargo but it also can act as a carrier for mobile platforms such as MP-203AA "Pinecone". Normally, the ST-51 "Ox Wagon" escorts capital ships with these defensive platforms in tow. These mobile platforms are deployed when needed in defensive combat situations. Once deployed, from its Command and control room, all 8 platforms can be remote controlled. The ship’s Advance Command & control system and communication systems make this possible. Using these systems, the ST-51 "Ox Wagon" can even act as a Command & control point for small size fleets without a dedicated Command & control ship.
    [​IMG]
    Offense; As a support ship, the ST-51 "Ox Wagon" is lightly armored and has no dedicated weapons. However, the versatile nature of the ship makes it possible to attach offensive weapons with not too much structural alterations. For example, the 51 can activate the weapons of the MP-203AA "Pinecone" Mobile Platforms while still attached to their carrier. Thus, the ST-51 "Ox Wagon" can act as a light combat frigate. However, the lightly armored nature of the 51 means that it cannot sustain too much damage before system failure. In more drastic terms, artillery pieces can be attached to the ST-51 "Ox Wagon" to turn it into a mobile artillery ship.

    Civilian usage; While designed for military usage, the versatility of the ST-51 "Ox Wagon" resulted in a high demand for the ship to perform many civilian roles. Cargo transport, pleasure cruise ship, personal yacht, etc.
