Basic Description

Nicknamed the "Flute" because of the sound the launch of all its missiles make, the XSS surface-to-surface artillery carrier makes great use the available laser and missile technology that existed at the time of its inception.

The XSS and the XSA are together the latest additions to the Legionnaire's active combat weapons manifest. Able to be equipped with either long-range heavy laser guns, anti-personnel cluster bombs, or missiles designed to bring down reinforced walls or other armour types, the XSS is a modular and easy-to-modify artillery carrier that has proven its use to the Legionnaires.

The "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 Flute an incredibly powerful artillery piece whose deafening sounds encourage the Legionnaires to push forward against the enemies of the Crown.
