IFB - 86 "Battle Bird"

The Black Flame

Intent: To create a bomber for the Fel Empire
Development Thread: no
Manufacturer: Koensayr Manufacturers
Model: IFB – 86 “Battle Bird”
Affiliation: Fel Imeprium
Modularity: Payload
Production: Mass-Produced
Material: Alu-steel

The IFB – 86 “Battle Bird” is the Fel Empires first attempt at making a strong and durable bomber. The Battle Bird lacks shields like the “Fire Bird” fighter and is less maneuverable, but it makes up for it with having a strong hull. In the way of armaments, the bomber utilizes a current version of the Galactic Empire’s L-s7.2 laser cannons which it has 1 mounted on either wing. At the end of the fins, found just beyond either side of the wings, are warhead launchers that each holds 8 warheads each. The launcher on the left side is a proton torpedo launcher while the one the right is a standard missile launcher able to launch concussion missiles and other such equipment. Finally, the power not utilized for extra laser power has instead been used to power a single Bomb bay that can hold 8 bombs of varying types (proton, mines etc).

The Bomber uses a two seated system where the pilot and bomber both get individual stations. The Bomber, seated directly next to the pilot, controls the entirety of the bomb bay and its aiming mechanism and is tasked with timing bomb drops with the movements and speed of the ship. The pilot controls the movement, speed, cannons and torpedoes/missiles. If the pilot were to be seriously wounded or killed, the bomber could easily take over the controls. However, if the bomber is killed the pilot could not control the bomb bay without giving up the pilots controls.
