At the parade, organized in honor of the Emperor’s birthday, an elite squadron presented a demonstration flight of the latest development of Imperial ships. The ship made a training demonstration flight on the training ground, and despite the fact that the interceptor guns have fallen off, and gunship flew without 1 engine, they have shown excellent results even in this state. As StarGeneral Beastenberg announced, these ships are still in testing, but the Empire has already ordered several thousand copies of each sample.
The next day, in response to the Empire demonstration flights, Jericho families gathered conference with representatives of the galactic press and presented them their new products. Despite the existence of these ships in only 1 copy, all of Jericho shipyard received an order for their immediate production. Families claim that their ships are not worse then imperial, and they even will be delivered to the Center of mercenaries at a lower price, although only the most proven and dedicated Jericho mercenaries will be allowed to fly on it.
Federation stated that they have made the next generation ships a long time ago, but for reasons of high maintaince price and the risk of declassifying military secrets, they haven’t started their mass production.
II. Joint Research Centre said that over the last few months they have developed new types of guns and modified the old ones. Good results have been achieved in a number of ways. However, for reasons of different orientations, different problems and different methods of manufacture of these tools, guns can be put only on the pre-determined paces. Some ships do not have the needed gun nests, other have no relevant generators or free space for ammunition. Scientists also thought about universal devices that are suitable for installation on all ships of a specific weight class. Scientists claim that they are as good as the special guns, but pilots believe that the extra versatile system (additional generators, nests, etc.) can affect their quality.
So, what was presented to the press:
- Joint development of Avangard and Technolists. Its advantage is the high rate of fire and damage done by a single projectile, but such was achieved by removing the stabilizing guide magnets.
- Varden development of Department of the Imperial Corps laboratory. Its advantage - high speed rotating towers and powerful illuminating beam capable of prolonged exposure to burn shields and destroy the enemy ship armor. However, the standard crystal-armor because of its structure can temporarily absorb part of the phase of radiation.
- Joint development of Jericho and the Federation. Slow but powerful charge coming through enemy ships and destroying the integrity of their structure
- Created by Technologists, designed by the Empire and with the financial support of Raid - gun with suppressing effect (this is a working title, the main military has not yet been invented). It is able to shoot powerful missiles having an explosive effect on a very large distance, but its size and storage volume requirements under the ammunition does not allow you to set the unit on light ships.
- Joint development of the Legion and Tech’s based on federal emitter drones. What makes this system unique is its mobile changer of overheated barrels.
- Also presented were new missile pylons and the mechanism of rapid recharge from a local warehouse. It allowed greatly increase the ammo of all missiles and their analogues. In addition, each group will depart on a mission dedicated freighter with an automatic system with constant drone of disguise. For the safety of himself freighter will stay out of combat zones, but it will produce drone with the necessary ammunition. Drone will find himself the goal automatically dock with the ship and replenish his ammunition.

III. At the conclusion of the parade, at a military conference in OOF General Beastenberg said that due to the continued rampant piracy, there was a joint decision on the limitation of unit sales of missiles. Now the pilots will be issued only with license to own and replenish ammo packs, and not the “expendable device.” The new system does not provide logistics unit sales, and fits perfectly into the framework of the law. Due to the feature of the structure of the entire system, to avoid dangerous situations while landing, ammunition fired off into space and destroys itself.
IV. Continuing the pirate theme. Forces of antipirate committee are coming to an end, but the pirates still continue its detrimental effects on society. Committee has decided to attract additional forces for stripping pirate bases. OOF has additionally allocated several billion loans for the implementation of the plan.
V. Recently piloting skills ships new pilots coming to the Centre, has been steadily deteriorating. In connection with this ETSN passed a law on mandatory summer practice. From now on, all pilots, regardless of rank and title, to obtain a license and access to more advanced modifications will be required to demonstrate skills with previous ship. A special device will measure the skill of piloting and when achieving certain successes it will give the signal of permission to purchase a license for a more advanced model.
The same was revised access plan and specific licenses required for further progress. Will this plane be realized – we don’t know yet. It is still not agreed all the details and signed the necessary documents.
VI. A few days ago, a group of drunken federates began to molest the Jericho women’s team of mechanics. As a result of the ensuing fight, almost all federates were sent to the hospital with all kinds of fractures. Federated Community mercenaries accused Jericho bad behavior, saying that their pilots were misunderstood and beaten for no reason, and demanded an apology. The girls refused to go at night with them in the movie, so are to blame for what happened, and they will make excuses to no one l.
Because of this conflict and even a number of such incidents between the factions ETSN rented a number of landing sites, which are located in the metropolitan sub-sectors of the factions involved in the military conflict in the WX Sector. Now, any mercenary can be repaired, refueled, sign contracts on a mission and find friends among those who are closest to him in faith and spirit.
While these hangars are closed, but we managed to get a picture of one of them. And although it is a photograph of the guide and its quality leaves much to be desired, can be estimated that expects pilots.
VII. The introduction of a system of individual differences was not as smooth as it should. Some pilots did not have access to a range of standard visual images, and some asked to re-pay access, although previously stated that access to them is free. Leaders United Center to work with the mercenaries promised to fix it, according to their assurance after the next regular preventive maintenance systems, everything returns to normal.
