History & Data

The Fantan-Tyrian Republic while employing the humongous kilometers in size orbital weapon’s platforms also deploys what it calls an Automated Orbital Defense Craft or AODC which is actually based off of it’s weapons platforms, most military space stations and even takes the place of some larger ships small craft compliments.

The craft has three sections, two of which are just basically the armored coverings for the weapon systems that it holds; the armored coverings look like someone has mated two mushroom caps [or for human car buffs hubcaps] together.

The third and final portion of the craft is revealed when the armored coverings are ejected [things can be re-used if recovered] showing a circle fairly thick disk bristling with weapon systems.

This portion holds two medium particle beam cannons and a single heavy particle beam cannon that are the main armament and twenty-four light heavy missile tubes with each having its own revolver cylinder magazine holding five missiles each.

This craft is completely automated and requires no crew and is generally controlled by it’s tenders computer system although it does have a basic heuristic system that causes it to seek out the nearest friendly station or ship if it’s tender is destroyed.
