    Del'Hxar Company -- Axiom Aerospace

    Post  Manek Iridius on Sat May 16, 2015 1:18 pm

    Axiom Aerospace


      Founded in DATA EXPUNGED by the Del'Hxar trading mogul DATA EXPUNGED, Axiom Aerospace spent years toiling in relative obscurity, developing small frigates and shuttlecraft in small numbers for private corporations until the calamity of DATA EXPUNGED destroyed the Del'Hxar homeworld, leaving Axiom's chief competitor, DATA EXPUNGED (Translation: Mass & Lightning Incorporated) devastated by the loss of its major HQ, where Axiom had only just begun plans for construction of their second artificial satellite. With the advance warning of DATA EXPUNGED given to the Del'Hxar and Tassaream, Axiom was capable of putting plans on hold and manually transporting the component parts of the station along with the inhabitants of the system's Ark.



      Since the Del'Hxar's arrival in the Sol system, Axiom Aerospace quickly became one of the core organizations the race was built around. The on-hold station was erected in loose orbit around Venus, and much of its research has since been dedicated to the creation of an artificial atmosphere around the pressure-cooker world. Axiom's terraforming division has taken much of its focus away from military goods, especially where DATA EXPUNGED is chomping at the bit to regain its lost foothold in that very market. However, the long trip to Sol from their home system offered plenty of time for their engineers to develop and lay out plans for their primary vessel, and hopefully main source of income for their terraforming efforts, the M6 Kynreeve (Terran reporting name: 'Wasp'). Though the station has devoted itself largely to scientific research, it was built as a shipyard first and foremost, and still produces vessels at a slow, if steady, rate.

    Personal Weaponry


      Though not the main focus of Axiom Aerospace from the start, the corporation still has needs, and like any other, those needs are coin. Both the killer and the killed need to arm themselves, and the few forays into weapons development Axiom has allowed itself have been focused on leveling the playing field between those dressed to survive and those dressed to live.


    Light Pistol ~~ Alkh'en-Staatz Mirko-Divellek Colliquan – Reporting name; ASMD Autopistol

      The ASMD Autopistol was originally devised as a light, suppressive-fire capable sidearm for Del'Hxar combat units. Unfortunately, the low damage output of the weapon lead to it being derisively referred to as a 'red, thin flashlight' by military personnel. However, with a shift in marketing strategy, the ASMD was easily sold in large numbers as personal defense weapons for those worried about what may hide in the alleys of the cities and stations. The criminal element was quick to catch on to this low-power, low-emission weapon, happily inviting those on their bad side to come 'And Suck My Dick'.

      • Damage; Energy 20S
      • Clip; Thirty-Round Thermal
      • Firing Modes; Three-Round Burst, Full-Auto



    Sniper Rifle ~~ Mirko-Chauss – Translation; Saint's Wrath/Reporting Name; Longinus

      The Longinus was created as part of a personal project by the weapons engineer DATA EXPUNGED, during downtime between M3-5 design in the years before the Ark's launch. First conceived as a 'shock and awe' sniping weapon, the Longinus operates by ionization – The weapon traces a weak targeting laser when armed, and once the trigger is pulled, it ionizes the air, using the laser as its conduit, functionally firing a bolt of lightning from the weapon to its target. Though this technology proved wondrous in taking down the electronic shielding used in local space, its performance against unshielded targets is lackluster. To make up for this, snipers carrying the Longinus as part of their loadout can overcharge the targeting laser to deliver damage directly. Though not the weapon's intended use and mildly ruinous to the weapon in question, this technique has proven invaluable when there was simply not time to change weaponry, and a sniper's life rest on the edge of a coin.

      • Damage; Energy 90El/Energy 60S
      • Clip; Twenty-Round Thermal/Five-Round Internal Thermal (.5 Recharge)
      • Firing Modes; Semiautomatic



    "Light Machinegun" ~~ V'ehk-Chronn – Translation: Hell's Breath/Reporting Name: Chimera

      Born of complaints regarding the Longinus, the Chimera is a weapon designed to thrive where the Longinus cannot. Loading canisters of varied chemicals, the Chimera sprays a cone of acid, flame, or nitroglycerine depending on how the chemicals are mixed. Each set of canisters is mounted by an internal mechanism and serviced at specialized stations; in an effort to keep the weapon's downtime to a minimum, the chemicals are compressed using technology similar to the space compression of local cargo bay tech, leaving its operator only to worry about the status of the thermal clip regulating the extremely varied temperatures the weapon produces. One major downside of the Chimera is, as a result of its specialized nature and the complicated technology involved in its ammunition supply, the weapon is very expensive. Also of note is the awkward nature of the thermal clip and weapon supplies – the weapon has a very hard time changing its output when the internal heatsink hasn't cooled enough; Unless the internal clip is completely cooled, utilizing the altfire is a full action as the clip must be exposed to open air and allowed to vent its excess heat before the weapon can be fired in its now-primary firing mode. As a safety feature, the weapon will not fire after utilizing altfire unless the clip has had the chance to cool down – either through being exposed to open air, or being given time to cool down normally.

      • Damage; Fire 35/Acid 30/Cold 25
      • Clip; 75iT(5)/50iT(5)/100iT(5)
      • Firing Mode; Full-auto



    Launcher ~~ Nellek Traas – Translation: Splitting Meteor/Reporting Name: Taurus

      The Taurus is a new weapons design, developed after the weapons engineer DATA EXPUNGED began a research project on the weapons and armament of the Sol system – or, more to the point, Earth – throughout history. Upon learning of the break-barrel kinetic weapons from days of yore, and discovering the design still quite popular and utilitarian, DATA EXPUNGED set out to develop a similar system. The end result was the Taurus grenade launcher. Based loosely on the ancient Terran M70, the weapon sports an over/under double-barreled design meant to deliver different explosive charges in quick succession to a single target with multiple layers of defense. The stock model loads Axiom's own kinetic and energy-based explosive charges, but in theory the weapon could fire any rimfire-style explosive charge loaded into it.

      • Damage; Explosive.K 30/Explosive.E 50
      • Clip; 1In/1In
      • Firing Mode; Semiautomatic

    Aerospace Vehicles


      From the beginning, Axiom was devoted to developing quick, efficient space travel for traders and groups alike. Though they eventually began dreaming bigger, the corporation was content to slowly build steam and a reputation for speedy that got the job done the moment they needed to; a strategy that was quickly shut down by the calamity of DATA EXPUNGED. Already sporting quick, efficient TS and TP designs, the Axiom M5 was designed during the exodus to Sol, and upon arrival, a small team was immediately assigned to the development of an M6-class corvette, as the aging Del'Hxar M2 'Sha'reen' developed by DATA EXPUNGED was both too bulky and too slow to effectively escort the Ark to Sol, having been designed for planetary defense.


    M3 Fighter 'Kyn-Tiv' -- Translation: 'Adviser's Arrow' / Reporting Name; 'Hornet'

      The Del'Hxar's main contribution to the Ark's escort wings were Axiom Hornets. Originally built to outrun enemy interceptors and bring them down before they could harass their targets, they proved quite useful in a heavy scouting role, capable of tracking threats and quickly returning to the Ark if needed. The tradeoff for their speed, however, is abundantly clear in their comparatively weak shielding next to other fighters of its class. Mounting two light cannons on the front of its dorsal arch and only capable of firing mid-class missiles from its twin missile ports, the Hornet's light armament leave it relying on allies to bring down tougher foes than fellow fighters.

    M6 Corvette 'Kyn-Reeve' – Translation: 'Adviser’s Eyes' / Reporting Name; 'Wasp'

      The very first vessel to come off the production line of the Axiom Aerospace Venusian Shipyard was a Wasp, and the vessel has proven a quick, if lightly-armoured asset to the Del'Hxar military, helping prove early on amoungst the militaristic Tessaream and relatively unknown Humanity that this technologically-inclined race was not ignorant of their technology's applications. With two sets of three-round volley missile hardpoints mounted above the engine flanges and a triad of turret-capable weapons mounts underneath, the Wasp's only blind spots are directly to its sides and rear, where the bottom-mounted turrets are incapable of tracking targets for risk of hitting their own vessel. A single front-mounted cannon grants the Wasp its stinger; often mounting some form of mass driver, Wasps in battle will find themselves peppering their targets with low-drain turret fire from above before pulling around to shatter what little remains of the target's shield with a kinetic blast and begin to chip away at armour and hull with missile fire.

    TS Freighter 'Chirrk-Del' -- Translation: 'People's Foundation' / Reporting Name 'Ant'

      One of Axiom's first designs and arguably one of its most well-known, the 'People's Foundation' design was meant to be exactly that -- the foundation Axiom would build its reputation on. Quickly nicknamed 'Ants' for the sheer number that arrived with the Ark's convoy as supply vessels and the way they were quickly put back to work in their original capacities, the alien design is surprisngly ubiquitous in the Sol system, perhaps only outnumbered by Earth's natively-produced freighters. Lightly shielded and completely unarmed, this frigate has a comparatively small cargo bay to make room for the large engine that gives it that reliable speed its company is known for.
