NR-53R Ghostbullet by Afterskies NR-53R Ghostbullet by Afterskies
*Note: NR-53R must be deployed alongside at least one NR-53S Spiritangel to produce electricity.
*Note: While the NR-53R Ghostbullet does carry an onboard reactor, it cannot use the reactor for power during flight, as the NR-53S Spiritangel houses the turbine section for the pair. The two aircraft must be hooked up to each other.

In light of tsunamis, hurricanes, and massive earthquakes, disaster relief has seen - among others - one massive problem: electricity. So many of these storms bring down electrical power to the area, often severing power lines with no hope of relief for days. While many shelters may have emergency generators, fuel for these can run out in short time and takes a supply line to assist a city's worth.

The NR-53R Ghostbullet coupled with the NR-53S Spiritangel, which houses the steam-plant and electricity-generation side, provide on-demand electrical power to any place with so much as a large open field for landing or a large enough stretch of open road. With their own desalinization plants, they can run for months so long as they have access to water.

In the event that they cannot be parked next to a lake, river, or other large water-source, both the Spiritangel and Ghostbullet can roll out massive water-bladders to be filled with any available water as a secondary heat-sink for both normal operations and emergency decay-heat removal.

To prevent meltdown, the NR-53R can supply sufficient decay-heat removal to itself with nothing more than natural circulation within a period of time short enough to cool down prior to fuel melting. As a backup, two batteries mounted along the lower-sides of the aircraft can be powered by the wing-mounted solar panels to help power the reactor's coolant pumps.

The reactor is for emergency disaster relief electricity and forward operating bases.
