War Gallon Dropship now with fluff

Post by Dart Omega »


The War Gallon is the upgrade of the original Gallon which Pirates have called the "treasure Gallon" because of how easy it was to capture due to it's slow speed and weak defense systems.

Most of it's weight went to it's Cargo capacity.

The War Gallon cargo bay was heavily reduced. doing so allowed for a larger engine, actual weapon, a lance of Mechs, two wings of fighters, two platoons of troops, and different types of vehicles.

The vehicles are made up of cargo trucks, a couple of VTOLs, and some combat vehicles.

When going for a civilian registration of the craft almost all of the great houses tried to deny that due to it's load out.

FOIS argued that the War Gallon was indeed a civilian craft that could handle itself during operations in areas of pirate activities or worlds could that was at risk of having a hostile take over by another on planet faction.

The FOIS won the Civilian classification but had to pay massive fees for the registration and was prohibited from being sold to mercenary groups.

The Wolves dragoons sided with the FOIS with allowing to sell the War Gallon to all those that could afford it and that includes Mercenaries.

The prohibition was removed.

In thanks FOIS sent the Wolf Dragoons two brand new War Gallons with a case of whisky bottled on terra in 2777 in the cargo hold which was rumored to be Kerensky's favorite.

Mainly seen in FOIS bound towards risky worlds or dangerous space it has been seen in the Wolves dragoons as well as the Blue Swords and the sister unit Blue Shields.

It's also been seen in Federated Suns and the Free World League.

PLEASE dont hate me, but I think you should know:

Galleons were large, multi-decked sailing ships first used as armed cargo carriers by European states from the 16th to 18th centuries during the age of sail.

gallon is a unit of volume in imperial units and United States customary units.

The design is excellent, tho.
