The KC-9 King Karnov is the latest in a series of industrial air transports created by Lockheed/CBM Industries of Gibbs. The product line started in 3001 with the KC-5. The aircraft was dubbed by the media King Karnov due to its passing resemblance to NETC's Karnov VTOL. The aircraft has seen service in both the civilian industrial and military markets. In fact the aircraft appears so similar to the Karnov that in 3012 the New Earth Trading Company filed suit that claimed that Lockheed/CBM officially named the craft the King Karnov. This lawsuit was found to be without merit and was dismissed.
Equipment and Capabilities
KCs are able to take off from short runways and land vertically via their tilt-rotor turbines. The aircraft is protected by six tons of Industrial-grade armor, able to withstand the majority of heavy weaponry.
