Sketches – Elysian Gunboat

The Elysian Doru-class Gunboat, code named "Shutter" by deWulf Naval Intelligence, was first seen by the deWulf during the initial attack on Dave's World. A completely new weapons system, the Gunboat proved to be a devastating weapon. First developed over three years before their first use on the initial attack on Dave's World, the Doru… Continue reading Sketches – Elysian Gunboat

Sketches – Elysian Khoran-Class Dropship

The Khorsan Assault Shuttle is the standard multi-purpose combat dropship used by the Elysian Army and Elysian Navy. Similar in overall appearance to their spaceships, the Khorsan is designed for atmospheric and short-range spaceflight, but is not capable of long-distance spaceflight. Quad engines provide reliable and redundant flight capacity, critical since the Khorsan does not… Continue reading Sketches – Elysian Khoran-Class Dropship

Sketches – Elysian AA Battery

The Trident Elysian Air Missile Battery is the standard fixed AA emplacement used by the Elysian Army. Packing six Trident multi-purpose AA missiles in a revolver magazine setup for rapid-fire usage. Each warhead is fitted with a small "pinch-squeeze" nuclear warhead engineered for clean yield at the expense of raw power output (the logic being… Continue reading Sketches – Elysian AA Battery

Sketches – Ship Docking Clamps

As deWulf ships grew larger and larger, it became apparent that they could no longer rely entirely on just docking adapters to remain secured. Once ships passed beyond even a thousand tons of mass, docking adapters were at risk of flexing or breaking just due to minuscule shifts in a ship's position. Changes to make… Continue reading Sketches – Ship Docking Clamps

Sketches – Charged Gas Harvester

It only took a few jump points to be charted before deWulf explorers discovered warp points that had formed inside interstellar nebulae. In addition to the amazing scientific opportunities this offered, industrial interest followed quickly afterwards. While some nebulae (The Rotensee and Nebelflamm) were energetic enough to be hazardous even to warships, others (The Cloak… Continue reading Sketches – Charged Gas Harvester

Sketches – Plasma Gun Mount

An offshoot of plasma torpedoes, the plasma cannon is a close range, hard hitting direct fire weapon. Instead of relying on energy beams (like laser or particle accelerators), or graviton projectors (more commonly referred to as "force" beams), the plasma cannon instead launches packets of high-temperature plasma contained in a kind of "static drive field"… Continue reading Sketches – Plasma Gun Mount
