Archangel missile

5 posts in this topic

Name:

FTL Assisted Missile Booster, Archangel missile

Description:

An FTL booster attached to the rear of a missile. It's size (and hence power) varies depending on the predetermined travelling time.

Abilities:

>Swift cross-system missile strikes.

>These boosters can be modified to fit onto most missiles.

>Able to attack beyond the system limit.

Conditional Abilities (Optional):

>Bypass traditional anti-missile defences.

Limitations:

>The missile cannot be used with a tracking system due to their sheer speed.

>These FTL boosted missiles cannot be launched from mere corvettes and alike; they require a proper station to be launched from or a unique attachment to a vast battleship.

>The missiles cannot travel further than through two systems; in case someone would give them too long of a path, they'd self-destruct mid-flight.



Conditional Limitations (Optional):

>There's always a chance for them to be hit mid-flight by something like an asteroid and consequently the missile will instantly explode. (To determine the chance of the missile hitting a space object, a roll must take place)

>Anything that's supposed to stop vessels during FTL also easily stops these missiles.

>Celestial Objects have to be accounted for when shooting a target outside the system where the ship/station resides in.

How does it work: Within the rear of the missile, a pre-programmed FTL drive is located. The said object determines the path the weapon will take. When the missile misses the target or comes off course then it will detonate after a set amount of time in order to prevent misfires.

Flavor text: These boosters were originally a project handled by the Nova Australian USCM a couple of years ago with the initial plan of warping ODST pods through multiple systems. The project was soon abandoned when they found lethal flaws and due to how expensive these pods were. It was, however, recently revived by the Christians along with the help of their closest allies, the ICIF.

In fact, the boosters are still in the later testing phase, and they're speculated to be used in an upcoming invasion.

Referenced Technologies (Optional): N/A

Attainability: [OPEN] As these missiles are being developed by an isolated nation, they are only available to them and the ICIF, however, another nation could potentially acquire them through trade or make their knockoffs.

Hey there @Partiϟan, I don't see anything wrong with this app balance-wise, however I don't feel the [SEMI-CLOSED] tag is appropriate here for a generic tech such as this. I'd like it if you could change it to [OPEN], thank you.

~Pending~
