NTV Mk 1 SNAKEFIGHTER

Nicknamed the Snakefighter by its design team, the NTV Mk1 is a unique “super dropship” in that it provides a platoon with interstellar mobility and relative self-sufficiency. Its flanks dominated by enormous thruster pods, the Snakefighter is capable of rapid atmospheric maneuvering, high sublight velocity in space, and substantial payload hauling.
Standard crew complement is 10, comprising a pilot, copilot, weapons officer / navigator, and engineer. In case of “crew attrition, “ (ie casualties), much of the ship’s functions can be handled by relatively inexperienced personnel, due to a high level of automation and user-friendly design. The living quarters are spartan, and the lack of bunk space forces the crew members to rotate their eating and sleeping. The medlab is fairly basic, intended for patching up non-lethal combat injuries.
The main loading ramp is divided into two smaller loading ramps, which can be operated independently of each other. A crane in the ceiling of the cargo bay aids vehicle maintenance and cab be used for storage.
The tactical command post is similar to a standard APC interior, with maps, monitors, and a sliding command chair.

Performance:
Communication range: 10 000, FTL
Crew: 1 Pilot, 1 Co-Pilot, 1 Gunner, 1 Engineer. Life support for up to 100 personnel. Bunks for 30 passengers.
Additions: Fire Retardant, Flares, Raft, Emergency Rations, Sleeping Bags.

M-242 COMBAT BUGGY
The M-242’s design bears more than a striking resemblance to its civilian counterpart, he Daihotei ATV. Both vehicles have almost identical drivetrains. The major exceptions is size. The M242 is smaller and sporting only four wheels. The Buggy only has a crew of three with no passengers, one pilot, one com operator, and one turret operator. Both can open their canopies and operate effectively in the clear.

The M-242 is one of the most capable combat vehicles in the CMC. Not only is it fast, running off a pair of K-1000 Gas Turbines, but it is also maneuverable, using four wheeled steering on a four wheeled drive transmission. The control system can be modified to operate as a typical steered vehicle about also as a independent control for each wheel. Allowing the car to drive sideways and virtually every direction, keeping its nose pointed forward.

This helps the aiming of its turret weapon, supporting a pair of high-powered 10-mm Vulcan Gattling cannons. These weapons can strafe targets with ease from a 1000 meters. The only disadvantage with maneuverability is weight. Being light, the buggy cannot take many hits. Most heavy weapon will permanently disable the vehicle. The wheels, themselves, are especially vulnerable.

I'm going to find a solution to this fake profile thing. Maybe fixing the email authentication was a mistake. We may have to go back to me approving everyone manually until we have a better solution.

Edit: Okay I wiped out most of the spam profiles, banned their IPs and shut off self-activation. Unfortunately there's not a good way to tell a real profile from a fake so some might still get through. I'll do my best to monitor them though.

Edit 2: Okay there turned out to be more then I thought. I pruned close to 200 profiles. The problem should be solved, but it creates the old problem of real users getting locked out. If there's any doubt I'll let the profile through and ban later if it's a spam bot.

Wow, yeah, there were a lot of Russian bots spamming us hot and heavy. I tried reporting them but when we started getting multipage topic threads, I gave up and unsubscribed from the Off-Topic forum. I'll resubscribe and give it a go. Thanks for all your hard work, Cpl. Hicks!
