(Gundam Seed :: METEOR)

Intent: Aerial Gunship for the Mnenchei Dominion and any approved clients.

Manufacturer: Ri'ess Regal Drives
Model: Astra-Class Gunship
Affiliation: Mnenchei Dominion, select clients
Modularity: None
Production: MP
Material: Durasteel Alloy Frame, Titanium Alloy Chassis
Description: With only modest armor, the Astra makes up for its medium grade durability with its fast speed, high stability and convenient armament. Primarily a missile gunship, the Astra has six silos which hold six small submunition warheads each. Capable of firing in succession, the platform can continuously rain shrapnel on enemy infantry lines or soft and medium targets. Its two frontal laser cannons can hit armor hard while four composite laser autoturrets can be remote-operated by internal gunners to target individual infantry targets that may pose a threat. This variety allows it to be highly effective against large infantry confrontations and difficult terrain such as trenches. However, it leaves it lacking against hard targets such as tanks and heavy walkers. Due to a lack of room for hyperdrive core or large oxygen tanks, it is primarily confined to atmospheric operations, though it can sustain itself in the outer atmosphere for a short time to dock or deploy from capital carriers.
