The Fehran Assault Shuttle isn't an assault shuttle at all- It's an extrication shuttle. The shuttle drops combat robots and power armors about 15 miles from a city under Fehran fighter cover, then returns to orbit while the RPA's secure the area. Once secure, the shuttles land one by one, load on the loot, then take off again to the awaiting ships in orbit to off-load. They repeat this pattern until either all of the loot is loaded up, or until the area is threatened by a counter attack.
The assault shuttles design is a strange conglomeration of the RDF shuttle and T'sentraedi Re-entry and Shuttle Pods.
A Fehran Pirate Raider (Atorian Grinar Assault Shuttle)
Name: Grinar Assault Shuttle; Officially designated the Fehran Pirate Raider by the U.G.C.
Model Type: Shuttle
Class: Pirate/Raider
Crew:4 to 12, plus assault team.
Passengers: 40 potentially. Can carry 1 Fehran Fighter, 2 Fehran combat robots, and 4 Fehran power armors. Additionally, as many as 160 slaves can be loaded on in lieu of normal loot.
MDC By Location:
Thrusters (4)-

1. Robots and fighters:
Fehran Fighter: 1
Fehran Combat Robots: 2
Fehran Power Armors: 4

2. Bomb Load: Up to 100 LRM Warheads can be carried as bombs, either guided or unguided. Note that this is the ONLY weapon carried by the ships, and a load of bombs means loot can NOT be loaded on.
Purpose: Offense/Anti-City
Bomb Type: Any LRM Warhead except multi warhead.
MD and Range: Varies by type used.
Rate of Fire: Bombing runs of any number of bomb the capt elects to
have released. 1 run per every 8 melees.
Payload: 100 bombs max.
  • Radar: Combat grade radar. Range: 2,000 miles, can track up to 500 individual targets. 95% reliability (24% against unfriendly stealthed vehicles).
  • TIES (Threat Identification and Engagement System): All sight systems and the are automatic linked to this system. This system assists the pilot in identifying the target and selected the proper weapon system or round type need for the most effective threat neutralization. The computer then places the 32 most threatening targets into the fire control computer, and assist that computer in tracking these targets. This system is cable of storing data on the top 96 Identified Targets. It tells via voice and data displayed on the Heads Up Display what the target is and what sort of weapon should be used on it. Contains all currently known designs. It has a 84% monster/D-bee/Demon success rate, and a 89% power armor or robot ID success rate. Paired with an 88% success rate for selecting the proper weapon and aiming point. It can also ID magic power's, and spell like effects 57% of the time and give suggested counters and avoidance data.
  • ESM: Radar Detector. Passively detects other radars being operated.
  • Type-11 wide band radios: Effective 10 mile range, auto encrypt/decrypt. Works on standard radio band wavelengths, so it can still be jammed (if the enemy knows the frequencies).
  • 1-MC: Internal loudspeaker.
  • Loudspeaker: Amplifies voice 1 to 100 times. 100 feet in normal crowds.
  • Electronic Counter Measures (ECM): These systems disrupt enemy radar and tracking systems, making it difficult for them to lock onto the ship with weapons. The countermeasures give the Mecha a +3 to dodge, +2 to strike and +1 on initiative in combat.
  • CBR Protection: Complete chemical, biohazard, and radiological protection.
  • LDP (4): Launched Decoy Pods. Located on the wingtips. The ship carries special pods that carries advanced decoy drones. These drones are launched and fly off in various directions away from the ship. Each is a specially designed radar lure that creates a radar image to mimic the vessel. If decoys are not destroyed, they can be recovered and repaired. This system has been successfully deployed against SEVERAL alien radar-type sensors (including one that works off of sound).
    MDC: 5
    Effects: The decoy has a 98% chance of fooling ordinary non militry radars and non smart guided missiles, and a 90% chance of fooling militry grade radars and advanced smart missiles.
    Range: Released to go wherever it wants. Can fly independently for about 30 minutes.
    Rate of fire: 2 every melee.
    Payload: 16 Decoys each pod.
  • AJP: Active Jamming Pod. Causes -25% to detection but when it is active, other vehicles/bases can detect that it is jamming, and some missiles will home in on jamming signals. Jamming also causes a -4 penalty to all radar guided weapons.
  • Anti-Jamming System: Reduces Electronics Countermeasure by 3/4 (decrease skill level appropriately).
  • Full Range Sensory Suite: Infrared, ultra violet, Magnification, night sight, color filters, thermal imager. Range is about 2,000 miles for MOST sensors.
  • MRA 6 Radios: Allows real time, continuous radio link up with friendly forces in the area via satellite relay over laser radio signals, preventing jamming, and automatically encrypts/decrypts same to prevent eavesdropping.
  • AMC/FD (2): Anti-Missile Chaff/Flare Dispensers. Actually launches a glob of burning magnesium/aluminum alloy to confuse both radar AND heat sensory systems. Fires off 04 chaff/flares each time it is activated. The system is KNOWN to work on all KNOWN radar and infrared systems, but concerns continue that somewhere out there their MIGHT be a system that will be totally unaffected by the system. Reduce effects by 20% against smart missiles (add+20% to rolls for smart missiles.)
    01-50: Enemy missile or missile volley detonates in chaff cloud - Missiles are all destroyed
    51-75: Enemy missile or missile volley loses track of real target and veers away in wrong direction (may lock onto another target).
    76-00: No effect, missile is still on target.
    Also note that the chaff cloud will also blind nearby heat sensors (and optically based sensors at night) for 1 melee. They will suffer the following penalties: Reduce melee attacks/actions, and combat bonuses by half. Duration: 1D4 melee rounds.
    Payload: 60 chaff/flares. Each time the system is engaged, the system fires off 04 chaff/flares.
  • FLIR/SLIR: Forward and Side Looking Infrared. Allows pilot and weapons officer to get visuals on targets at night.
  • Blue Force Tracker: Identifies Friend from Foe. Overlays the information on both the radar and HUD, ensuring that friendly forces are not accidentally targeted.
  • Video Recorder: Records from sensors and the cockpit itself. 500 hours of recording available.
  • GPS: Standard tracking device.
  • HUD: Displays maps, radar, targeting information, and any other information the user wants directly in front of her.
  • Virtual Map: Displays a continuously-updating map of local terrain for the pilot. Effective land navigation of 85% as updates come. Good to 50 miles. Specific range can be adjusted in 1 mile increments.
  • Survival Pack: A pack of simpler emergency survival supplies: Pup tent, sleeping bag, black light, GPS, first aid kit (bandages, gauze, bandage tape, pads, antiseptic/analgesic), plasma torch (for small repairs and starting fires), repair kit (with MDC Repair Spray), sewing kit (a small spool of thread and 5 needles), 7 star flares (250 foot apogee), 2 white parachute flares (1,500 foot apogee), 100 feet of black or brown parachute cord (150 lbs tensile strength), 2-5 days rations, 2 gallons water, water purification kit- good for about 10 gallons.
  • Oxygen Rebreather System: Extends pilots air supply to 100 hours; Cartridge MUST be replaced afeeter that period of time.
  • Internal temperature and humidity control: Automatically maintains crews desired heat, humidity, and other personal comfort settings.
  • Heat And Radiation Shielding: Special shielding prevents the penetration of life threatening heat and radiation.
  • Variable Tint Cockpit Canopy: Adjusts tinting to light conditions, up to an including a black dot if the sun is directly on the pilots face (only covers eyes).
