F-58 Hammer SpecificationsF-58 Hammer Specifications4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The F-58A Hammer is an 6th+ generation ultra-long range, hypersonic heavy fighter designed for air dominance and rapid strike missions. Its design is based off of the proven F-33A Rapier II hypersonic multirole fighter, and thus shares much of its technology. In addition to the proven technology inherited from its predecessor, the aircraft also brings new technologies to the fighter world. The most notable of these technologies include SynVision, which is a form of synthetic vision designed for this, and other higher performance aircraft. It allows unparalleled situational awareness when compared to convention cockpit designs along with reducing RCS and aerodynamic drag. In addition to SynVision, F-58 also uses a more advanced variant of EO-DAS designed just for this aircraft.
Other advanced technologies include DAESA (Distributed Actively Electronically scanned Array), which places multiple AESA panels in various places around the aircraft to provide 360˚ ra

F-59A Sabre II
The F-59A Sabre II is an advanced 5.5 generation medium weight stealth fighter designed for air superiority. It is powered by a single PDT-60 variable cycle engine that produces 40,000-60,000 lbf (18,143.69-27,215.54 kgf) of thrust via a 2 dimensional thrust vectoring nozzle. This advanced engine can propel Sabre II to a maximum speed of Mach 2.4 at 30,000 ft (9,144 m) while providing efficient cruise performance. Agility is on par with the F-22A Raptor due to the 2D nozzle and very large control surfaces and wing area.

The C-50A Titan is an ultra heavy lift transport designed for both military and civilian needs. It is capable of transporting up to 1,145 tons of cargo ranging from oversized heavy equipment like mobile cranes, to M1A2 Abrams Main Battle Tanks. Like other large transport aircraft, it utilizes a roller based floor to allow for easy loading and unloading of palletized cargo. It also is capable of handling intermodal shipping containers, which allows for unprecedented versatility for such a large platform.
It has strategic range when used as a military transport, which allows it to carry nearly ship-like payloads Trans-Atlantic or Trans-Pacific. Due to the immense size of the aircraft, it is limited to only airfields with at least 250 ft wide runways and reinforced taxiways. It also requires a 10,000 ft runway length. Overall ground pressure is comparable to heavy lift aircraft such as the Boeing 747-8F, Antonov An-225, and the now cancelled Airbus A380F.

"You lied to me!" Shepard accused, "You used me to kill your sister!"
"I see you found out then" Nassana said with a slight sigh, "I am sorry I had to mislead you. I couldn't let anyone find out what happened. If the Council found out that my sister was a mercenary, I would be considered a security risk. Now that she is gone, I don't have to worry about that"

Even a one in a million chance pays off sometimes.
The scout was damaged by a chance encounter with a rogue asteroid, only reawakening when it was caught in the gravity well of a planet.
