Description[edit]

Produced by Mujika Aerospace Technologies of St. Ives, the Yùn is a light stealth aerospace fighter, produced for the Capellan Confederation in the early thirty-second century. The fighter is uniquely designed to act in the close air support role while also being able to drop a squad's worth of battle armor onto the battlefield.

The design's creation was inspired by Detroit Consolidated Aerospace's Troika, which originated the novel concept of delivering battle armor by aerospace fighter.[4]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

Designed to insert a battle armor squad discretely to their designation target, a four ton infantry compartment is fitted in the fighter's main fuselage. The Yùn uses eight and a half tons of Hellespont Aerolite stealth armor with a Guardian ECM suite to be able to quietly protect and deliver its troops to their drop zone.

The fighter is armed with single Ceres Arms ER medium laser in the nose, while backed up by pair ofSian/Ceres Stalking Cougar Streak SRM-6 launchers also found in the nose. In addition to its built-in payload of weapons, the fighter is able carry number of external ordnance and equipment to enhance its ability to support the troops on the ground.[5]
