Civilian spaceships

Hedron

Spaceship hedron decal.jpg
Hedron is a small and nimble civilian ship, with automatic landing helpers that make the ship suitable for more inexperienced pilots, or for those who prefer some luxury.
Hedrons have a low flight time, so storing some spare fuel in the ship is generally considered good practice.
Hedron ships are not suitable for warfare and battles, as their primary designed function is to serve as ships for civilians and for example reporters.


Ithaca

Ithaca is a large cargo ship that can hold a multi-robot crew.
Although being an unarmed spaceship, Ithaca can withstand damage well, making it a secure ship to transport valuable cargo in.
The current version of Ithaca has gone through several iterations since it was first built, with its hull having been tweaked four times over.


Kodiak

Pioneers are also equipped with radio transmitters and a large set of programmed chips, making them suitable ships for patrol duties.
Pioneer was the ship with navigation technology.


Remus

Remus is a civilian class cargo ship designed specifically for transportation and hauling of large objects, such as station parts or asteroids.
The ship utilises cargo beam technology to transport large objects.
Remus is a brother ship of the cargo ship Romulus.


Romulus

Romulus is a civilian class cargo ship made specifically for transportation and hauling of large objects, such as station parts or asteroids.
Unlike its brother ship Remus, Romulus is loaded from the top side of the ship, allowing for easier loading and unloading of cargo.
Romulus is equipped with cargo beams for transporting large objects.
Romulus ships are also generally considered easier to pilot than Remus ships.


Serf

Twin Vasama

Spaceship Twin vasama.jpg

Twin Vasama is a small ship that is powered by batteries. Unlike the original Vasama, Twin Vasama is equipped with two seats and can fit two robots in it.
Compared to the original Vasama, Twin Vasama has a hovering mode and a better mobility.


Urchin

Urchin is a hybrid of cargo and mining ships.
Urchin is equipped with powerful mining lasers, that enable efficient mineral harvesting.
Urchin also has a cargo lock frame that can be used to transport cargo.


Vasama

Starbase vasama1.png
Vasama is a very small and fully electric spaceship that is powered by batteries.
Everything in the ship is controlled by four Yolol chips, even flying.
The ship is balanced with plates, which means removing plates from the ship will alter flying.
The ship is generally used to get around the massive Capital Mega Station, instead of walking.


Vasama Vanette

Starbase vasama vanette.png
Vasama Vanette is a small delivery and cargo ship, equipped with cargo boxes.
The Vasama Vanette model has both the Flight control unit and Main flight computer, unlike the more basic versions of the Vasama Vanette, the Vasama and the Twin Vasama .

Empire spaceships

Lictor

Spaceship Empire Lictor.JPG
Empire Lictors are heavyweight gunships, designed for upkeeping order.
Due to their slow speed, Lictors are usually paired with fighter escorts, consisting usually of Spathas.


Spatha

Empire spatha.jpg
Spathas are nimble, agile, and effective fighter ships used by the Empire troops.
Spathas are often used to escort larger gunships, such as Lictors.


Veles

EmpireVeles.jpg
Veles is conceptualized as a light corvette that can fill the roles of a skirmisher and an anti-gunship, as well as a frigate's role in larger fleet compositions.
Veles is designed with speed and firepower in mind and the ship is capable of outmaneuvering and outrunning the gunships currently deployed by both the Kingdom and the Empire armies.
The ship has an impressive number of point defense turrets that are relegated to supportive role, as the ship's two primary weapon systems are best used from a long distance.
Rail cannon mounted on the top deck, and a battery of eight vertical launched torpedo tubes enable the Veles' long range firepower.
The ship's high top speed and long range weaponry allow effective use of kiting and hit-and-run tactics.

Veles' secondary intended role is to act as light assault and troop deployment vessel and a long range patrol craft.
However, to maximize speed, Veles class is lightly armored and is ill-suited in close quarters battles.
To mitigate this weakness, array of nine twin autocannon turrets are used as close range point-defense against fighters and missiles.
A pair bow facing plasma throwers and missile pods is installed to support the ship's assault role, and act as supplemental weapons if the ship closes in on the enemy from torpedo range.
Due to the ship's excessive weapons systems, electricity consumption becomes issue when the rail cannon and all of the autocannons are used simultaneously in a prolonged engagement.
Veles Class is plagued by a tight and claustrophobic interior that can become nuisance for it's crew during long patrol missions. This, however, keeps the ship's overall silhouette minimal and plays in it's intended role as long range sniping platform.


Kingdom spaceships

Knight

Kingdom knight.jpg
Knights are armed spaceships, used as agile fighters by the Kingdom troops to support heavier gunships, such as the Lancer.
The Kingdom Knights can be equipped with multiple different loadouts due to their modular building design, which allows the customization of the ships.


Lancer

Kingdom lancer.jpg
Lancers are Kingdom gunships, armed with heavy plasma cannons that can easily shred through big space ships and stations alike.
