Vizsla whistled, impressed as she continues reading the details of Tekkadan flagship; The Franca new remodeling details. Back then a month or two ago and for some reason they were given the green light for their ship to receive a major refit for upcoming missions where they would be needed in case things get rather dicey.
Looking over the details, the refit came along with a new and much more spacious hangar design with a lower hangar connected via several paths and a aircraft elevator to deliver heavy loads or the Franca’s dropships complement as they will be stored there while the Mobile Suits will be located and stored in the main hangar.
Another addition to the refit would be the ship’s armaments. While the Franca still kept it’s two main Focus Beam twin cannons and bow torpedo launchers, it’s point defense weapon systems have been replace with newer and much more advanced weapon systems. Engineers behind this had to think of a way to make a effective weapon systems for the boys in Tekkadan given their lack of understanding in Phaser technology. It was difficult as they had to Branch out to different kinds of tech that could be effectively use until one of them had the idea of implementing a old design from the 21st century. The Kortik/Kashtan CIWs. A outdated and primitive design but highly effective and combined it with the latest Electromagnetic Accelerator rail technology this creating a new yet dangerous CIWs called the Tektan-75. Armed with a pair of twin-link rail rotary cannon capable of firing 75mm Armor-Piercing-High-Explosive for intercepting enemy missiles or torpedoes, AA and Anti-ship combat. Beside the pair of rotary rail cannons, it came with a pair of box six tube interceptor missile launcher utilizing High-Explosive plasma warheads and rather powerful rocket engine.
Another addition to the ship armaments was a series VLS(Vertical-Launch-Sytem) containing of 50 tri-tube missile silo cell in a Honeycomb pattern to maximise and were located at the top aft, port side, starboard side and a additional two more on the top bow section.
Next additional refits was the armor overhaul. The old nanoliminate armor was supposed of and discarded and was replace with the same armor used by other Solas Tempus ships like the Atlas-Class. Additional Defence system was the addition of a Deflector shield. In order to compensate for the immense amount of ammo and energy required, several heavy-duty fabricators were installed into each weapon system to keep up the constant ammo supply and a whole new Impulse and Anti-matter Reactor to supply the ship systems.
There were several changes to the ship decks as well such as artificial gravity, refurbish crew barracks and cantina with new and advance food fabricators. A new deck addition was the Orbital Drop pod bay/hangar which will be used by the Tekkadan newly added members. With over 50 pods stored there along with several re-purposed Mobile Workers ready to be drop from orbit.
But the biggest addition in the refit was an FTL Drive. Specifically a Hyperdrive allowing Tekkadan for the first time, capable of FTL travel.
Again whistling at the thought of FTL flight was a big thing to Vizsla as her universe didn’t had tech like that. Helm she was impressed at the firepower the Franca was currently packing and the sheer hangar size she was seeing in the blueprints.
It was as if Santa Claus became an engineer and gave Tekkadan a gift for being a bunch of good killer kids. Vizsla would simply chuckle at that humorous thought before turning to the other command staff.
“I’ll have to say, they seriously didn’t pull any punches in this refit.”
