Basic Description

As part of the 2490 Paper on a Confederacy Military, the Luna Minoris Confederacy's High House of Policy published a series of technical specifications file that would include a highly diversified manifest of fightercrafts. This diverse manifest would be able to fulfil the many tasks that would be asked of a unified Confederacy military force including, but not limited to patrol, escort, and diplomatic missions as well. In order to improve planetary defence capabilities within the Luna Minoris Confederacy, the planned Confederacy military is expected to benefit from an extensive fightercraft force - with separate atmospheric and space classes.

The OuO class fighter was designed to have a dual role as a recon fighter alongside being capable of providing a single "whopping" payload that would be able to effectively provide air support to LMC ground troops should they be in a situation where they would be pinned. A fast vessel capable of operating in the stratosphere, the fighter is equipped with powerful sensor suites that make it a powerful eye in a combat situation.

The OuO fighter owes its name to Parliamentarian OuO who presided over the Committee to design the fightercraft in the first place. As part of the 2490 Paper on a L.M.C. Military, the Committee proposed that as part of the fightercraft force, it might be useful for a fightercraft that could operate higher than most atmospheric fightercrafts with the intention of giving a bird's eye view of combat operations taking place on the ground. The result is the OuO, a moderately armed and defended fightercraft that has the best sensor suite for a craft its size in the entire galaxy.

The OuO is one of the largest fightercrafts in the galaxy as well, this makes it an easy to detect prey - the OuO will tend to be escorted by a pair (or more) fightercraft interceptors and will usually play a role as a ground support craft more than anything else.

Special Systems

Onboard System
Name: Multi-Ordinance Systems
Description of System:

The OuO incorporates the Modular Ordinance Hardpoint (MOH) technology developed by the Rosebourg Monarchy first sold to the Ventaars as part of an economic relief package for the Rosebourg Monarchy. The Ventaars have since improved the design. The MOH allows ordinance "modules", pre-loaded with weapons, to be installed in the hardpoints of a fightercraft. A computer chip comes with each module, interfaces with the fighters computer, and tells the computer the exact capabilities of the weapons package.

# 1 Package

This package is composed of 1 KHDD package, a combination of 6 bombs of 500 terawatts each that can be fired from high altitude and can be fired at a precision point down on a planet. These weapons cause devastating damage, capable of annihilating entire city blocks, or killing huge portions of ground troops. These weapons, although able to be targeted at a precision point, are not precision weapons and in simulations it is known to the LMC that the potential for friendly fire incidents when using these weapons rises considerably. They constitute some of the most powerful fightercraft weaponry in the future LMC military's arsenal.

Special Systems

Onboard System
Name: Afterburner Upgrades
Model: Eeloose
Manufacturer: Manuf Mar-Cha Engines
Description of System:
The afterburner upgrades, which are a standard component of any new fightercraft allow for sustained maximum speeds of up to 10 seconds before a recharge is necessary. They are extremely important for giving the extra edge in speed that is so vital to fightercrafts.
