Basic Description

Nicknamed the "Air Flute" because of the sound the launch of all its missiles make, the XSA is almost the identical twin to its XSS cousin. The XSA differs majorly, however, in the actual modules which it employs. Likewise, its targeting sensors have been greatly improved as these missiles are designed to attack starships and fighters. The XSA does both extremely well.

Able to be equipped with either long-range missiles or long-range torpedoes. Like the XSS, the XSA is a modular and easy-to-modify artillery carrier that has proven its use to the Legionnaires.

The "Air Flute's" modular technology is a modified technology brought from the fightercraft forces of the Rosebourg Monarchy. This modular technology, equipped aboard a heavy platform, has permitted the Rosebourg Monarchy to make the Air-Flute an incredibly powerful artillery piece whose deafening sounds encourage the Legionnaires to push forward against the enemies of the Crown.

Description of System:

The XSA "Air-Flute" is an unarmed craft at its base, that is then supplemented with armament modules that all carry significant firepower.

Module 1

  • Model: XSA-1122-L
  • Output: 325 terawatts
  • Number of laser turrets: 4 laser turrets

*Note: In order to fire these long-range turrets, the Air-Flute must grapple to the ground. Where it anchors itself, it becomes an immobile target. Likewise, these laser turrets are incapable of fighting against surface targets. These laser turrets are only able to fire a long-range laser discharge up to 4x the distance of a starship laser discharge.

Module 2

  • Model: XSA-1122-S Surface-to-Air Anti-Fightercraft Missiles
  • Range: 2850 kilometres
  • Missiles Payload: 8

  • Module 3

    • Model: XSA-1122-P Surface-to-Space Anti-Ship Missiles
    • Range: 20.000 kilometres
    • Missiles Payload: 8

    Module 4

    • Model: XSA-1122-I Missile Interceptors
    • Range: 20.000 kilometres
    • Missiles Payload:8
