Ke-V8-W3200

About

The Ke-V8-W3200 is a system developed to allow a Ke-V8 "Teisatsu" Fighter to serve in a forward observer capacity. The system allows the fighter to mark high-value targets for attacking vessels to be able to quickly lock onto them and fire even with the enemy using counter measures.

History

Since one of the missions of the Teisatsu is to enter enemy territories and locate targets. The Ke-V8-W3200 was developed as a means of allowing a forward operating team to mark targets with a beacon that Star Army of Yamatai forces could lock onto.

Appearance

The Ke-V8-W3200 appears as a rounded cylinder with four missile tubes on the forward section. The tip of the launcher contains a laser used to guide the projectiles to the target.

Target Drone

The Ke-V8-W3200 fires specialized projectiles. These use low energy ion engines to propel and maneuver. Their guidance system is extremely rudimentary. They are guided to their target by a laser beam. The laser is mounted in the front of the module Once the drone impacts the nosecone collapses releasing molecure solution to adhere it to the exterior of the target. The drone then goes into standby mode awaiting a coded transmission to activate them.

When the drone receives the coded signal the drone begins broadcasting on a specific predetermined frequency. Attacking Star Army of Yamatai vessels can lock onto those signals and thereby identify the priority targets in the system.
