NMX Battlepod (Type 33)

Based on the successful Type 30 Battlepod, the Type 33 battle pod is a direct replacement for the Type 31 Bomber Pod. These pods were first produced in late YE 32 for use in YE 33 and beyond in the Second Mishhuvurthyar War. They are heavily mass-produced and can be piloted by computers, brain-slaves, or even Nekovalkyrja. Because of their optional shield package and more maneuverable engines, these pods are significantly more durable and deadly than earlier models. This model has been adopted by both the NMX and the SMX.

Like their predecessor, the pods are generally equipped with four heavy anti-fighter cannons (two on each turret). Their two turrets can rotate to fire sideways, up or down, and even in reverse. Type 33 battlepods are also also usually equipped with an underslung missile launcher that holds 24 missiles โ€“ 12 firing forward and 12 firing rearward. However, both the wingtip turrets and the underside launcher are interchangeable with other weaponry. The Type 33 pods are made even more dangerous by their twin underside weapon mounts, designed to hold and fire torpedoes like the Ke-Z1 Series Anti-Starship Torpedoes or equivalents. Note: The torpedoes cannot be fired at FTL speeds. The battlepods can be used in planetary atmospheres but this is generally avoided. The Type 33 battle pod is shielded against scalar fields.
