Vulcan Union Of Worlds Orbital Dropship:
The Vulcan is the Unions Orbital Dropship and heavy transporter and performs orbital insertions and everyday transportation. Like the Ace gunship it mounts 4 massive engines which allow it to hover or fly at high speeds. But the Unions dropship is not like other races dropships. Where other races dropships have massive capacities but not much armour and weapons in the hope that speed will allow it to survive the Union has sacrificed some capacity for extra armour, a shield generator and an improved armament. Though its dual floor hull is still massive the Vulcan can fit around 5 Titan heavy tanks in the bottom hold or numerous other vehicles. The top hold is only available to infantry which have to disembark through the 6 side ramps. This can hold around 125 infantryman with equipment. The dropships shield generator as well encompasses an area around it protecting its occupancy as they disembark and its armaments can force enemies to go to ground or to fight off aircraft in flight.
Armament wise The Vulcan is armed with 10 turreted quad cascade cannon mounts. Together these provide the Vulcan with a very nasty bite and can easily ravage a fighter squadron. They can also force enemy infantry and light vehicles into cover or be torn apart. It is also equipped with 10 sponson cascade cannons at the front and 6 at the back to also provide more precise covering fire though these are infantry operated.
Defensive measures and armour wise The Vulcan is very heavily armoured, equipped with 2.5 inches of quantum lattice plate it is also equipped with 4 mark 3 shield generator stop stop enemy fire. The bottom and lower sides of the craft are also protected bu incredible heat shielding meaning any sort of heat or plasma weapon will simply be absorbed with minimal damage.
Electronic abilities wise the Vulcan mounts a hacking array and a missile and smart ordinance destruction package which detonates ordinance close to the dropship. It also carries numerous flare and chaff launchers and also is equipped with a dead man’s weapon if required. When activated the Vulcan can cause a localised EMP burst which will destroy all enemy aircraft in the vicinity though this also includes friendlies and so is hardly used apart from in last ditch scenarios.
Speed wise the Vulcan is able to go up to Mach 3.5 though it usually operates in orbital drops where its speed can be much faster in a vertical descent. Its hover jets also allow it to hover over the drop zone and give fire support before flying off for its next payload.
