Aircraft & aerial weapons systems-

Fighter Aircraft:

Trinity Aerospace is proud to present for your viewing our first entry into the fighter market. The F-220 Diablo incorporates the latest in air to air warfare innovation. We at Trinity Aerospace feel that the best defense is a good offense, and the Diablo was designed with that philosophy in mind.

Trapezoid-shaped air inlets are located underneath each wing, with the leading edge forming the forward lip of a simple fixed-geometry two-shock system. The placement of the intakes underneath the wings has the advantage in removing them from the sides of the fuselage so that a large boundary-layer scoop is not needed. Instead, the thin boundary layer which forms on the wing ahead of the inlet is removed through a porous panel and is vented above the wing. An auxiliary blow-in inlet door is located on each of the upper nacelles just ahead of the engine to provide additional air to the engines for takeoff or for low speeds. The inlet ducts leading to the engines curve in two dimensions, upward and inward, to shield the faces of the compressors from radar emitters coming from the forward direction.

The leading edge of the Diablo's wing is swept back at 40 degrees, and the trailing edge is swept forward at the same angle. When viewed from above, the wing has the planform of a clipped triangle. On the Diablo, every line in the planform is parallel to one or the other of the wing leading edges, which has become one of the guiding principles in stealthy design. The wing is structurally deep, and there is ample room for fuel inside the wing box.

The wing has leading-edge slats which extend over about two-thirds of the span. The trailing edge has a set of flaps inboard and a set of drooping ailerons outboard. In contrast to the our competitors, the Diablo is not equipped with a speed break as a weight saving measure.

The all-flying twin V-tails are set far apart on the rear fuselage. They are canted 50 degrees outwards in an attempt to avoid acute corners or right angles in elevation or front view. These all-flying tail sections are hinged at a single pivot. Their leading and trailing edges are parallel to the main wings but in a different plane. The all-flying canted tails double as shields for the engine exhaust in all angles except those immediately above or hehind the aircraft.

In the Diablo, we have elected not to use thrust-vectoring for aerodynamic control. This was done in order to save weight and to help achieve better all-aspect stealth, especially from the rear. All controls are by aerodynamic surfaces. The V-tails work in pitch, roll, and yaw. The wing trailing edge controls provide roll control and lift augmentation, but they also function as speedbrakes and rudders. For straight line deceleration, the control system commands the outer ailerons to deflect up and the inboard flaps to deflect down, thus producing a decelerating force but creating no other moments. Yaw control can be provided by doing this on one side only.

There is a midair refuelling receptacle located on the upper fuselage behind the pilot's cockpit. The Diablo is equipped with a complex fly by wire and throttle by wire system. All aspects of flight surface control are multiplexed into the aircrafts flight management and data integration system.

The edge treatment is sustained on the fuselage afterbody, where a jagged-edged boat-tail deck fills in the gap between the two V-tails and blends the engine exhausts into the low-RCS plantform. The exhaust nozzles are located well forward on the upper fuselage, between the tails, and are of the single expansion ramp type. There is one variable external flap on top of each nozzle, and the lower half of each nozzle is faired into a curved, fixed ramp. The engines exhaust into tunnels or trenches cut into the rear fuselage decking. These trenches are lined with head-resistant material, cooling the engine exhaust rapidly and making for a weaker IR source.

In the pursuit of stealth, all of the weapons carried by the Diablo are housed completely internally. The forward section of the fuselage underbelly is flat, with a capacious weapons bay immediately aft of the nose gear bay. The bay could carry six AIM-120 AMRAAM air-to-air missiles. The missiles are launched by having the doors open and the missiles extend out into the airstream on trapezes. The missiles drop free and the motor fires. The doors immediately shut, minimizing the amount of time that they are open and thus possibly causing more intense radar returns. It should be noticed the Diablo has a stretched forebody, accommodating an extra missile bay for a pair of AIM-9 Sidewinders or ASRAAM air-to-air missiles in front of the AMRAAM bay. In addition, the Diablo carries a 20-mm cannon fitted inside the upper starboard fuselage just above the main weapons bay.


The Diablo is unique in its ability to mount and utilize all known modern air to air missiles, and within 1 hour modifications by ground crew can allow for a limited air to ground weapons capability. Internal weapons mounting hardware can be removed to allow for the addition of addition fuel storage.

A complete electronic warfare suite is standard. The Diablo has the ability to detect incoming radar energy, localize the distance from from the aircraft, and jam. With the stealth characteristics of the Diablo this will prove to be a capability that is rarely used.

The F-220 is equipped with an AESA radar with look down shoot down capability. The AESA radar is a low probability of intercept model, which means that even with the radar transmitting the odds of detection by enemy ecm gear is less than 30%. The air combat suite is capable of tracking 30 seperate targets via radar, and 20 via the infrared detection suite. This data, along with all pertinent flight information is displayed within the pilots eye shield in a single integrated display.

The F-220 is highly capable and highly survivable on the modern battlefield, and in the battlefield of tomorrow. We at Trinity Aerospace invite you to make the Diablo the tip of the spear in your nations defensive capabilities.

The Banshee features lightweight construction (82% composites consisting of 70% carbon fibre composites and 12% glass reinforced composites). Banshee achieves high agility at both supersonic and low speeds by having a relaxed stability design. It has a digital fly-by-wire control system providing artificial stability, as manual operation alone could not compensate for the inherent instability.
Roll control is primarily achieved by use of the canards. Control surfaces are moved through two independent hydraulic systems that are incorporated in the aircraft, which also supply various other items, such as the canopy, brakes and undercarriage.

Navigation is via both GPS and an inertial navigation system. The Banshee can use Instrument Landing System (ILS) for landing in poor weather. The aircraft employs a sophisticated and highly integrated defensive and early warning system. Threat detection is provided by a Radar Warning Receiver (RWR) and a Laser Warning Receiver. Protection is provided by Chaff, Jaff and Flares, Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) and a Towed Radar Decoy (TRD).The early warning system monitors and responds automatically to the outside world. It provides the pilot with an all-round prioritised assessment of Air-to-Air and Air-to-Surface threats. It can respond to single or multiple threats. Banshee also features an advanced ground proximity warning system fully integrated into the cockpit displays and controls.
The Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) provides the data link.

The Banshee features a "glass cockpit" without any conventional instruments. It includes: three full colour Multi-function Displays , a wide angle Head Up Display (HUD) with Forward Looking Infra Red (FLIR), Voice & Hands On Throttle And Stick (Voice+HOTAS), Helmet Mounted Symbology System (HMSS), Multifunction Information Distribution System (MIDS), a Manual Data Entry Facility (MDEF) located on the left glareshield and a fully integrated aircraft warning system with a Dedicated Warnings Panel (DWP).

Although not designated a stealth fighter, measures were taken to reduce the Banshee's radar cross section (RCS), especially from the frontal aspect. An example of these measures is that the Banshee has jet inlets that conceal the front of the jet engine (a strong radar target) from radar. Many important potential radar targets, such as the wing, canard and fin leading edges, are highly swept, so will reflect radar energy well away from the front sector. Some external weapons are mounted semi-recessed into the aircraft, partially shielding these missiles from incoming radar waves. In addition radar absorbent materials (RAM) coat many of the most significant reflectors, e.g. the wing leading edges, the intake edges and interior, the rudder surrounds, strakes, etc. The Banshee does not use internal storage of weapons. External mounting points are used instead, which increases its radar cross section but allows for more and larger stores. Another measure to reduce the likelihood of discovery is the use of passive sensors, which minimises the radiation of treacherous electronic emissions. While canards generally have poor stealth characteristics, the flight control system is designed to minimise the RCS in flight, maintaining the elevon trim and canards at an angle to minimise RCS.

The Banshee is able to mount air to air and air to ground munitions. Air to air missiles, cruise missiles, and laser guided bombs are just a few of the options available to your nations air force. Banshee has proven the ability to complete a bombing mission and dogfight on the path home. This gives you a very versatile and highly survivable weapons system to employ in any theater of combat. Banshee is also able to be employed in an electronic counter measures role able to target and launch anti radar munitions.

The F-223 is capable of air to air refueling. In monitored airspace Banshee employs an inter-ship data link via blue green laser. This laser communications system makes radio transmission detection by hostile forces impossible. Via this same data link Banshee is able to network into a much larger strike package of aircraft and also has the ability to network with ground units during ground attack mission. AWACS data can be streamed into the cockpit displays. This allows the Banshee to have a radar picture without employing its own active systems.

Banshee is equipped with an advanced AESA radar. This radar is composed of 15,000 phased array modules each capable of independent scanning on multiple frequencies. This leads to a low probability of detection by hostile radar warning receivers. The AESA radar can also be used in a jamming capacity. Banshee's AESA operates in two modes. Air to air, and air to ground. When in ground attack mode the radar performs a synthetic aperture radar function with the ability to image objects with a width of 3 inches at 40 miles. When in SAR mode the radar performs multiple snapshots of its target per minute. This capability also lends itself to enhanced terrain following and navigation ability.

The weapons are launched by having the doors open and the missiles extend out into the airstream on trapezes. The doors immediately shut, minimizing the amount of time that they are open and thus possibly causing more intense radar returns. It should be noticed the Strike Diablo has a stretched forebody,maintaining the original extra missile bay for a pair of AIM-9 Sidewinders or ASRAAM air-to-air missiles in front of the air to ground munitions bay.

Unmanned Combat Aircraft:


F-209 Rapier

General characteristics
Crew: none aboard
Length: 38.2 ft (11.63 m)
Wingspan: 62.1 ft (18.92 m)
Height: 10.4 ft (3.10 m)
Empty weight: 14,000 lb (6,350.29 kg)
Max takeoff weight: 44,567 lb (20,215 kg)
Powerplant: 1× Ballston and Keller JN 480 turbofan with afterburner
Maximum speed: 1.8 mach
Cruise speed: 0.7 mach
Range: 2,800
Service ceiling: 55,000 ft
Variable. Can be outfitted with air to air, standoff, air to ground, or anti radar weapons
Cost: 35,000,000 per unit

Freed from human endurance limits, air-refuelable Rapiers can be designed to fly 50-100 hours — and perhaps much more — per sortie. At these extreme mission endurance levels, they can efficiently maintain broad-area persistent coverage from well outside the range of projected anti-access threats.

With the naval variant such extended range will enable a carrier to bring effective combat airpower to bear from blue-water sanctuaries, reducing the requirement for the ship to operate in potentially dangerous littoral regions or choke points. Carrier-based Rapiers are likely to prove exceptionally important for operations at sea, where distances are great and useful bases few. The ability of carrier-based unmanned systems to strike from both the sea, and to loiter for extended periods, even deep within large nations, will deny even geographically large continental opponents the sanctuary of strategic depth.

At the same time, Rapiers tailless, flying-wing planform design enables signature reductions across all radar frequency bands and aspects – a must for persistence missions over hostile territory.

And of course, unmanned operations negate the risk of aircrew casualties or capture, allowing peace time intelligence gathering with reduced risk of triggering an international crisis. Rapier could be deployed during the critical early stages of a crisis before combat search and rescue assets have been deployed. Rapier could also be deployed during the conflict itself in high-risk missions. With no aircrew risks, the F-209 offers a flexible, usable capability across the conflict spectrum.

Rapier can also be employed as a distributed area warfighting system comprised of multiple networked aircraft nodes operating cooperatively. Such a constellation can shore up weaknesses in a broad range of joint mission capability areas. These include, but are not limited to: land and maritime ISR and targeting, communications, time-sensitive ground target attack, maritime interdiction, anti-submarine warfare, and fleet air defense.

The bottom line is that Rapier will enable Carrier Strike Groups to cost-effectively project global persistent surveillance and attack capability for multiple missions at zero aircrew risk. This would not be just an incremental improvement to naval or ground based aviation, but rather a fundamental and transformational revolution

The Rapier is capable for three primary missions; surveillance/reconnaissance, suppression of enemy air defenses (SEAD) and strike and of course all the missions require stealth and consequent survivability. An Air to Air capability is also included.

Surveillance/reconnaissance: The Rapier is equipped with passive and active sensor suites able to cover a large geographic area and have a long loiter time once over the target area.

Suppression of enemy air defense: The Rapier is capable of defense stimulation, deception and neutralization as well as being remotely networked with theater and national sensor systems. Expect the plane to carry a complement of advanced SEAD ordinance and accurately target multiple enemies simultaneously.

Strike: The Rapier is extremely survivable and will carry a complement of existing weapons, as well as a synthetic aperture radar and a state of the art electro-optical / infrared suite all the while being interoperable with current command and control systems.

Now is the time to bring your nations aviation forces into a new reality. Imagine never again putting a flight crew at risk of death and capture, unprecedented mission lengths, and greatly reduced training costs. Trinity Aerospace challenges you to open a new age of military capability. The future is now!

Strategic Bomber Aircraft:

B-71 Excaliber
Trinity Aerospace is pleased to present to you, after decades of research our latest innovation. The B-71 Excaliber is the latest in transcontinental super sonic stealth bombers. Where Excaliber differs is in the use of passive stealth systems, and the first deployable active stealth measure.


length: 78.50 meters
wingspan: 46.47 meters
wing area: 293 square meters
height: 13.85 meters
empty weight: 32 tons
normal take-off weight: 129 tons
maximum take-off weight: 163 tons
normal payload: 14,000 pounds
maximum payload: 36,000 pounds
normal range: 11,000 km
maximum range: 11,000 km with 7 ton payload.
Air refuelable: Yes
maximum ceiling: 62,000 ft
maximum speed: 2.1 mach with afterburners.
cruise speed: 800 km @ low & medium altitude, > 850 km @ high altitude
crew: 2
Cost per unit:800,000,000

Constructed out of space age materials the Excaliber represents the latest in materials engineering science. Carbon fiber, complex polymers, titanium, and multiple radar absorbent compounds compose every surface of the Excaliber.

The B-71 is powered by four Rhinehart AQ-4 pulse jet engines, each rated at 240,000 pound of thrust. Each engine is hydrogen powered. Cryogenic hydrogen is circulated beneath the skin of the aircraft in an effort to reduce the Excaliber's infrared signature by a factor of 5.

Incorporated into the fuselage of each aircraft are two separate weapons holding bays. Each bay is equipped with a rotary style mounting point for an increased weapons storage capacity. While in flight each weapons bay is flooded with inert gas to reduce risk in case of on board fire or emergency. The weapons bay doors are equipped with fast action servo's for ultra fast opening and closing times. This mitigates the chances of non stealthy inner components of the aircraft being imaged by enemy radar during combat.

When judged from the standpoints of combat ability, stealth, survivability, or innovation the clear choice is the B-71 Excaliber. Like the ancient weapon of legend Excaliber was named for, this weapons system will elevate your nations air warfare capabilities to levels never before imagined. We invite you to challenge yourself to be the very best, and with Excaliber you can.

The Eclipse was designed to increase the airlift capacity and range compared with the aircraft it will replace. Cargo capacity is expected to double over existing aircraft, both in payload and volume, and range is increased substantially as well. The cargo box is 17.71 m long excluding ramp, 4.00 m wide, and 3.85 m high. The height is 4.00 m aft of the wing and the ramp is 5.40 m long.
Eclipse can operate in many configurations including cargo transport, troop transport, Medical evacuation, aerial refuelling, and electronic surveillance. The aircraft is intended for use on short, soft landing strips and for long-range, cargo transport flights.

The cockpit features a fly-by-wire flight control system with sidestick controllers and flight envelope protection. Like Trinity's other aircraft, the Eclipse has a full glass cockpit (all information accessed through large color screens) and as such represents a technological leap compared to the older cargo aircraft that many countries now operate.

The wings are primarily carbon fibre reinforced plastic. The eight-bladed Scimitar propeller is also made from a woven composite material. The aircraft is powered by four turboprop engines rated at 8,250 kW (11,000 hp) each. The propellers on each wing turn in opposite directions, with the tips of the propellers advancing from above towards the midpoint between the two engines. This is in contrast to the overwhelming majority of multi-engine propeller driven aircraft where all propellers on the same wing turn in the same direction. The counter-rotation is achieved by the use of a gearbox fitted to two of the engines, and only the propeller turns the opposite direction; all four engines are identical and turn in the same direction which eliminates the need to have two different "handed" engines on stock for the same aircraft, which simplifies maintenance and supply costs. This configuration allows the aircraft to produce more lift and lessens the torque and prop wash on each wing. It also reduces yaw in the event of an outboard engine failure

The EC-110 Peregrine utilizes a solid-state L-band conformal array radar system. Peregrine, as the complete AEW mission suite is referred to, is intended for airborne early warning, tactical surveillance of airborne and surface targets and intelligence gathering. It also integrates the command and control capabilities needed to employ this information. The system uses six panels of phased-array elements: two on each side of the fuselage, one in an enlarged nosecone and one under the tail. Each array consists of 768 liquid-cooled, solid-state transmitting and receiving elements, each of which is weighted in phase and amplitude. These elements are driven by individual modules and every eight modules are connected to a transmit/receive group. Groups of 16 of these eight module batches are linked back to what is described as a prereceive/transmit unit, and a central six-way control is used to switch the pre-transmit/receive units of the different arrays on a time division basis. The lateral fairings measured approximately 12 × 2 m and were mounted on floating beds to prevent airframe flexing degrading the radar accuracy. Each array scans a given azimuth sector, providing a total coverage of 360°. Scanning is carried out electronically in both azimuth and elevation. Radar modes include high PRF search and full track, track-while-scan, a slow scan detection mode for hovering and low-speed helicopters (using rotor blade returns) and a low PRF ship detection mode.

Instead of using a rotodome, a moving radar found on some AEW&C aircraft, the Peregrine uses the Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA), an active phased array radar. This radar consists of an array transmit/receive (T/R) modules that allow a beam to be electronically steered, making a physically rotating rotodome unnecessary. AESA radars operate on a pseudorandom set of frequencies and also have very short scanning rates, which makes them difficult to detect and jam. Up to 100 targets can be tracked simultaneously to a range of 200 nmi (370 km), while at the same time, over a dozen air-to-air interception or air-to-ground attack can be guided. The radar can be mounted on the an aircraft's fuselage or on the top inside a small dome , but Trinity Aerospace prefers the fuselage method. Either position gives the radar 360 degree coverage. The phased array radar allows positions of aircraft on operator screens to be updated every 2–4 seconds, rather than every 20–40 seconds as is the case on the rotodome AWACS.

When weighing price point and capabilities you will find the EC-110 fills the roles seen and unforeseen by the developing nation. The modern battlefield requires a complex tool. The EC-110 Peregrine is that tool, at a price beyond comparison. Trinity Aerospace invites you to step onto the modern electronic battlefield with our partnership beside you.


Trinity Aerospace is pleased to present you with the newest fruits of our labors. Imagine if you will the ability to airlift ten times the amount of cargo and troops per flight than you are now with last generation heavy lifters. Imagine further that you have a stealthy airborne tanker that can easily loiter over an operations area for twenty four hours. These things and more are made possible with the Aurora!

The Aurora was designed to become the first production composite aircraft, with the fuselage assembled in one-piece composite sections instead of the multiple aluminum sheets and some 50,000 fasteners used on existing aircraft. We claim the Aurora is 55% more fuel-efficient than other aircraft in it's class with one-third of the efficiency gain from the engines, another third from aerodynamic improvements and the increased use of lighter weight composite materials, and the final third from advanced systems.

During the design phase the Aurora underwent extensive wind tunnel testing at Trinity Aerospace's Transonic Wind Tunnel. The final styling of the aircraft was more conservative than earlier proposals, with the fin, nose, and cockpit windows changed to a more conventional form.

The cargo aircraft version of the Aurora is a true heavy lifter in every sense of the word. Internal area and lifting ability allow for air transport of six heavy tanks versus the single tank that the current generation of cargo aircraft can haul. This efficiency is further expanded if transporting rotary wing aircraft such as utility helo's or attack helicopters. Eight Apache sized attack helicopters can be airlifted with ease per Aurora flight. In terms of deployment efficiency increase you can easily expect to deploy troops, supplies, and heavy equipment with 90% less cargo flights needed, leading to a faster and less expensive deployment schedule. If used for transporting troops 800 fully outfitted paratroopers can easily be carried.

The tanker version of the Aurora is generations ahead of the competition. Outfitted with both flying boom and trailing fuel line equipment the Aurora is capable of refueling both land based and carrier based aircraft giving you the ability to standardize your nations tanker fleet. Internal fuel stores are carried in eight fuel bladders, each filled with inert gas. A simplified pumping system allows for ease of transfer of fuel stores between tanks or to the aircraft tanks for an increase in range of mission.

On the flight deck you will find the Aurora to be a marvel of software engineering. Flight surfaces are directed and controlled by a multiplexed fiber optic flight management system. All aspects are taken into account, from fuel burn rate, surface temperature of the skin, to operating altitude are monitored and compared an astounding three hundred times per second. The flight management system further controls the aircrafts electronic countermeasure system, reducing the need for an additional crew member.


Due to the design of the Aurora and materials used in its construction it can be classified as a stealth aircraft. In testing it was found to have a radar cross section approaching a fist generation stealth aircraft. This allows for a heavy lifting and tanker fleet that is much more survivable on the modern electronic battlefield. In tanker configuration where loiter time is a major factor these stealth characteristics are a massive force multiplier.

Utilizing next generation systems and a lifting body configuration give the Aurora unrivaled lifting ability and range. The top speed allows for faster transport in and out of a theater of combat. Stealth gives Aurora a covert ability. When weighing these merits it is clear the Aurora is truly the next great evolution in modern transport and tanker aircraft. Logistics are the deciding factor in modern warfare. Let the Aurora be the fulcrum in your nations logistics supply chain.


Trinity Aerospace is pleased to present for your viewing pleasure the worlds first exportable strategic missile defense tool. The Saint began as an idea among our engineers on how a nation can protect themselves from a nuclear strike in the modern battlefield. Our answer is a revolutionary weapons system that has no peer in the global market.

The ALI-150 weapon system is designed to detect, track, and destroy all classes of ballistic missiles in the boost phase of their flight. To this end, the weapon system is comprised of a megawatt class high-energy, chemical oxygen iodine laser (COIL) mounted on a modified aircraft.

The COIL relies on the excited state of molecular oxygen, O2(1D), is generated by the chemical reaction between chlorine gas and an aqueous mixture of hydrogen peroxide and potassium hydroxide (basic hydrogen peroxide). The byproducts of this reaction include salt (potassium chloride) and heat. Water vapor in the gas flow is removed because it interferes with the laser gas kinetics. Molecular iodine is then injected and mixed with the gas flow, and some of the energy in the oxygen is used to dissociate the iodine. Resonant energy transfer from the excited oxygen to the atomic iodine excites the iodine, and the gas flow is accelerated to a supersonic velocity in an expansion nozzle to create the laser gain region. Light is extracted with a laser cavity positioned transverse to the gas flow, and the exhaust gases are scrubbed to remove the residual chlorine and iodine.

The COIL operates at an infrared wavelength of 1.315 microns, which is invisible to the eye. By recycling chemicals, building with plastics and using a unique cooling process, the COIL team was able to make the laser lighter and more efficient while at the same time increasing its power by 400 percent in five years. The flight-weighted ABL module was be similar in performance and power levels to the multi-hundred kilowatt class COIL Baseline Demonstration Laser (BDL-2) . As its name implies, though, it was to be lighter and more compact than the earlier version due to the integration of advanced aerospace materials into the design of critical hardware components.

The primary features of the Saint is its nose mounted turret, Beam Control System, Active Ranging System, Battle Management equipment, Illuminator Optical Bench, Advanced Resonator Alignment System, the high energy laser (HEL), and the laser's fuel system. The 12-15,000 pound nose mounted turret is 1.5 meters in diameter and was designed to focus the beam and collect return images and signals from other equipment. The turret can be rotated into a stowed position to protect the lense and sensors from foriegn object damage and inclement weather. The Beam Control System controls target aquisition, tracking, fire control, aim point selection, and the shape and intensity of the HEL beam. The Active Ranging System is contained in a dorsal pod and contains the Track Illuminator. The entire system was based on the LANTIRN laser designator equipment already in service with the United States Air Force. The Battle Management equipment is the human control interface for the system, and is designed to make heavy use of commercial software in targeting, engaging, and kill assessment. The Illuminator Optical Bench was developed as a single piece of equipment for beam shaping and alignment, containing the aligning optics, and capable of being removed as a single modular unit for easy maintenance. The Advanced Resonator Alignment System is required to isolate focusing optics from disturbances that could poentially scatter the laster beam.

The deployable version of the HEL has set the record for chemical efficiency and used plastics and titanium to reduce overall component weight. Component weight is a major factor as the COIL's being used in tests since 2003 have been listed as "size of a SUV turned on its end...[weighing] about 6,500 pounds exclusive of the plumbing and support equipment." A total of six COILs were being used on the test aircraft by 2007 in order to achieve the requisite power. Like the Illuminator Optical Bench the design was also modular to allow for easier maintenance of select components. Unlike the original COIL, the design as of 2007 used a combination of hydrogen peroxide and ammonia as the fuel source, along with helium as a pressurant. The Saint's exact range under various conditions is variable, it has been found that that a baseline of 500 miles is common. Adaptive optics have also been developed for the HEL. This is because of atmospheric turbulence produced by fluctuations in air temperature and the same phenomenon that causes stars to twinkle can weakens and scatters the laser's beam. Adaptive optics rely on a deformable mirror, sometimes called a rubber mirror, to compensate for tilt and phase distortions in the atmosphere. The HEL's mirror is designed with 341 actuators that change at a rate of about a 1,000 per second.


The heart of the system is the COIL, comprising six interconnected modules, each as large as an SUV turned on-end. Each module weighs about 6,500 pounds (3,000 kg). When fired, the laser produces enough energy in a five-second burst to power a typical household for more than an hour.

The Saint is designed for use against tactical ballistic missiles (TBMs). These have a shorter range and fly more slowly than ICBMs. The Saint can be used against ICBMs during their boost phase. This could require much longer flights to get in position, and might not be possible without flying over hostile territory. Liquid-fueled ICBMs, which have thinner skins, and remain in boost phase longer than TBMs, making them easier to destroy. Tougher solid-fueled ICBM destruction range is limited to 300 km, too short to be useful in many scenarios.

The Saint system uses infrared sensors for initial missile detection. After initial detection, three low power tracking lasers calculate missile course, speed, aimpoint, and air turbulence. Air turbulence deflects and distorts the laser beam. The Saints's adaptive optics use the turbulence measurement to compensate for atmospheric errors. The main laser, located in a turret on the aircraft nose, is fired for 3 to 5 seconds, causing the missile to break up in flight near the launch area. The Saint is not designed to intercept TBMs in the terminal, or descending, flight phase. Thus, the aircraft must be within a few hundred kilometers of the missile launch point. All of this occurs in approximately 8 to 12 seconds.

This system does not burn through or disintegrate its target. It heats the missile skin, weakening it, causing failure from high speed flight stress. The laser uses chemical fuel similar to rocket propellant to generate the high laser power. Currently each aircraft carries enough laser fuel for about 20 shots, or perhaps as many as 40 low-power shots against fragile TBMs. The aircraft must land to refuel the laser. Operational plans should call for the Saint to be escorted by fighters and possibly electronic warfare aircraft. The aircraft can orbit near potential launch sites (located in hostile countries) for long periods, flying a figure-eight pattern that allows the aircraft to keep the laser aimed toward the missiles. The aircraft can be refueled in flight, enabling it to stay aloft for long periods.

In theory, the Saint can be used against hostile fighter aircraft, cruise missiles, or even low-earth-orbit satellites. However, as they are not its intended target, the capability against them is unknown. The Saint's infrared target acquisition system is designed to detect the hot exhaust of TBMs in boost phase making detection of fighter aircraft and cruise missiles much more difficult.

We at Trinity understand the need for exotic weapons systems to defend the body politic. This system will be produced in limited numbers, so reserve yours today!

The Seahorse has a flight endurance of over 11 hours, and it is used for a wide variety of missions: Search and Rescue (SAR), control of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), law enforcement, marine pollution detection, as well as defence missions. The Seahorse offers high manoeuvrability and excellent qualities for low-altitude flying. In addition, it has been widely tested in all kinds of aerial deployments: launch of chains of SAR rafts, emergency equipment and parachutists.

The Seahorse is equipped with a Magnetic Anomaly Detector (MAD) in the tail. This instrument is able to detect the magnetic anomaly generated by a submarine in the Earth's magnetic field. The limited range of this instrument requires the aircraft to be overhead or very close to the submarine. Because of this it is primarily is used for pinpointing the location of a submarine prior to a torpedo attack. Due to the incredibly sensitive nature of the detector, electro-magnetic noise can interfere with its operation. For this reason, the detector is placed in the tail stinger or "MAD boom", far away from rest of the electronics on the aircraft.

The passive systems are long-range, active scanning sonars which detect and maintain contact with underwater targets through a transducer ejected into the water. The system provides target classification and can accurately determine opening or closing rates of moving targets.The current version of the sonar has significant advantages in operation and maintenance over earlier systems. Certain electronic functions were automated to eliminate several operator controls. Maintenance was simplified by eliminating all internal adjustments and adding built-in test circuits.To enhance detection capability in shallow water and reverberation-limited conditions while essentially eliminating false alarms from the video display a Adaptive Processor Sonar (APS) is fitted to the system.The APS uses digital processor Fast Fourier Transform techniques to provide narrowband analysis of the uniquely shaped CW pulse. The display retains the familiar PPI readout of target range and bearing but APS adds precise digital readout of the radial component of target Doppler.With APS, processing gains of greater than 20 dB with zero false alarm rates have been measured for target Dopplers under 0.5 kt.The Seahorse is the first system to integrate APS and sonobuoy processing in a common processor, the Sonar Data Computer (SDC), thereby improving sonar performance by 20 dB in reverberation limited shallow water or by 13 dB in deep water exhibiting high ambient noise.

If you evaluate loiter time, detection capability, and reduced acquisition cost the Seahorse is the clear choice for your nations ASW platform and maritime patrol aircraft. Never again will you have fear of your sea lanes being compromised by hostile submarines.

The Dragoon Close Air Support System is a low cost option for todays modern battlefield. Mounting guided and unguided weaponry in addition to ceramic armour to protect the engine, airframe and pilot the Dragoon is a highly survivable and highly lethal addition to any nations armed forces. In an age of ever increasing airframe costs the Dragoon is a low cost solution enabling dramatically increased procurement numbers.

Fitted with communications systems designed for joint service this system is meant to work in tandem with all branches of the armed forces. A Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) is fitted and the Dragoon is designed to operate in both day and night all weather operations. Battlefield loiter time is measured in hours to give constant support to troops engaged. Utilizing a turboprop engine dramatically reduces the infrared signature of this aircraft versus modern jet aircraft.

The Dragoon is a low maintenance aircraft with a rough field take off and landing capability. This allows Dragoon to be deployed from temporary airfields and in testing the ability to take off from a dirt road while fully loaded was verified.

The A-3 has the ability to carry the full spectrum of air to ground weapons. The Maverick Missile, Hellfire, GBU guided and unguided series of free fall bombs, and CBU series cluster bomb systems have all been certified for use.

When comparing the purchase price of the Dragoon versus the price of a modern Main Battle Tank you'll find the Dragoon has a lower price point than the systems it was designed to combat. Further factor vastly lowered maintaining costs and the economies of scale the Dragoon provides are staggering.

The RAH-13's primary role is to seek out enemy forces and designate targets for attack helicopters at night, in adverse weather, and in battlefield obscurants, using advanced infrared sensors. The helmet has FLIR images and overlaid symbology that can be used as a headup display in nape-of-the-earth (NOE) flight.

The aircraft has been designed to emit a low-radar signature (stealth features). The Habu can perform the attack mission itself for the lighter units such as light infantry divisions. The Habu can be used as a scout and attack helicopter to include an air-to-ground and air-to-air combat capability.

The Habu's mission equipment package consists of a turret-mounted cannon, night-vision pilotage system, helmet-mounted display, electro-optical target acquisition and designation system, aided target recognition, and integrated communication/navigation/identification avionics system. Targeting includes a second generation forward-looking infrared (FLIR) sensor, a low-light-level television, a laser range finder and designator, and a millimeter wave radar system. Digital sensors, computers and software enable the aircraft to track and recognize advesarys long before they are aware of the Habu's presence, a key advantage in both the reconnaissance and attack roles.

Aided target detection and classification software automatically scan the battlefield, identifying and prioritizing targets. The target acquisition and communications system for allow burst transmissions of data to other aircraft and command and control systems. Digital communications links enable the crew unparalleled situational awareness, making the Habu an integral component of the digital battlefield.

n the reconnaissance role, the Habu is equipped with a new generation of passive sensors and a fully integrated suite of displays and communications. Advance infrared (IR) sensors have twice the range of past generations. The Habu is equipped with the Helmet Integrated Display and Sight System (HIDSS). The fully integrated avionics system allows tactical data to be overlaid onto a digital map, allowing the crew to devote more time for target detection and classification. A triple-redundant fly-by-wire system can automatically hold the helicopter in hover or in almost any other maneuver, reducing workload, allowing the pilot to concentrate on navigation and threat avoidance. A hand-on grip permits one-handed operation.

The Habu incorporates more low-observable stealth features than any aircraft in rotary wing history. The Habu's radar cross-section (RCS) is less than that of a Hellfire missile. To reduce radar cross-section, weapons can be carried internally, the gun can be rotated aft and stowed within a fairing behind the turret when not in use, and the landing gear are fully-retractable. The all-composite fuselage sides are flat and canted and rounded surfaces are avoided by use of faceted turret and engine covers. The Habu's head-on RCS is 360 times smaller than the AH-64 Apache, 250 times less than the smaller OH-58D Kiowa Warrior, and 32 times smaller than the OH-58D's mast-mounted sight. This means the Habu will be able to approach five times closer to an enemy radar than an Apache, or four times closer than an OH-58D, without being detected.

The Habu only radiates one-half the rotor noise of current helicopters. Noise is reduced by use of a five-bladed rotor. The fantail eliminates interaction between main rotor and tail rotor wakes. The advanced rotor design permits operation at low speed, allowing the Habu to sneak 40% closer to a target than an Apache, without being detected by an acoustical system.

The Habu only radiates 25% of the engine heat of current helicopters, a critical survivability design concern in a low-flying tactical scout helicopter. The Habu is the first helicopter in which the infrared (IR) suppression system is integrated into the airframe. This innovative design feature provides IR suppressors that are built into the tail-boom, providing ample length for complete and efficient mixing of engine exhaust and cooling air flowing through inlets above the tail. The mixed exhaust is discharged through slots built into an inverted shelf on the sides of the tail-boom. The gases are cooled so thoroughly that a heat-seeking missile cannot find and lock-on to the Habu.

The RAH-13 features a crew compartment sealed for protection against chemical or biological threats, an airframe resilient against ballistic damage, enhanced crash-worthiness, and reduced susceptibility to electromagnetic interference.


The Habu is easily sustained, requires fewer personnel and support equipment, and will provide a decisive battlefield capability in day, night and adverse weather operations. The Habu has been designed to be exceptionally maintainable and easily transportable. Through its keel-beam construction, numerous access panels, easily accessible line-replaceable units/modules and advanced diagnostics, the RAH-13 possesses "designed-in" maintainability. Habu aircraft will be able to be rapidly loaded into or unloaded from any Air Force transport aircraft.

Trinity Aerospace invites you to add this dynamic weapons system to your nations arsenal. As always we believe you will thank us with many years of service.

Sparrow makes extensive use of composite materials.The modular aluminium-lithium alloy fuselage structure is damage and crash resistant, with multiple primary and secondary load paths. Active vibration control of the structural response (ACSR) uses a vibration-canceling technique to reduce the stress on the airframe.Sparrow is rated to operate in temperatures ranging from -40 to +50 °C. High flotation tyres permit operation from soft or rough terrain. The main rotor blades are a derivative of the rigid rotor blade designs, which improves the aerodynamic efficiency at the blade tips, as well as reducing the blade's noise signature.

The cockpit is fitted with armoured seats for the crew, and can withstand an impact velocity of over 10 m/s. Dual flight controls are provided, though the Sparrow can be flown by a single person. The pilot's instrument displays include six full colour high-definition screens and an optional mission display. A digital map and and integrated battle coordination system are displayed.

Sparrow is powered by three high output turboshaft engines. Engine inlet particle separator systems provide protection when operating in sandy environments. Each engine is supplied by a separate 1,074 litre self-sealing fuel tank using dual booster pumps. A fourth tank acts as a reservoir supply, topping up the main tanks during flight; while a fifth transfer tank can be added to increase range, as can airborne refuelling. The engines power an 18.59 metre diameter five-bladed main rotor. The rotor blades are constructed from carbon/glass with nomex honeycomb and rohacell foam, edged with titanium alloy. Computer control of the engines via the aircraft EECU's (electronic engine control unit) allows the Sparrow to hover reliably in winds of over 80 km/h. The second small apparent exhaust pipe on each engine is the blowoff from a rotary separator to remove grit from the intake air.

A chin FLIR is fitted to some variants. Sparrow is equipped with Chaff and flare dispensers, directed infrared countermeasures (infrared jammers), ESM (electronic support measures, in the form of RF [radio frequency] heads), and a laser detection and warning system. It has two hard points for weapon carriers, on whichl can carry four torpedoes , depth charges, of anti-ship missiles. Sparrow can mount General Purpose Machine Guns (GPMGs) in up to 5 locations in the main cabin pointing out of door and window apertures.

The fuselage has a volume of 31.91 m3 and the cargo compartment is 6.5 m in length, 2.3 m wide and 1.91 m high. Each aircraft can accommodate up to 24 seated or 45 standing combat troops and their equipment. Alternative loads include a medical team and 16 stretchers, and cargo pallets. The cabin floor and rear ramp are fitted with flush tie-down points, a semi-automatic cargo release unit (SACRU). The ramp (1.91x2.3 m) can take a 3,050 kg load, allowing it to carry vehicles such as utility vehicles. A cargo hook under the fuselage can carry external loads of 5,440 kg via the use of a SACRU. A rescue hoist and a hover trim controller are fitted at the cargo door.

The navigation system includes a GPS and inertial navigation system, VHF Omnidirectional Radio range (VOR) instrument landing system (ILS), tactical air navigation (TACAN) and automatic direction finding. A DVS (Doppler velocity system) is fitted for when the exclusive use of the conventional pitot pressure instruments might be unreliable for gauging accurate airspeed.

Diameter: 1080 mm
Warhead: 499 kg Two stage delayed detonation warhead
Engine: Trinity Aerospace R15 Turbofan

Flight altitude: 30–40 m
Speed: Mach 0.80~0.95

Launch platform : Aircraft, ship, submarine

The double 499-kilogram (1,100 lb) warhead features a precharge and initial penetrating charge to clear soil or enter a bunker, then a variable delay fuse to control detonation of the main warhead. The missile weighs about 1,400 kg (3,086 lb) and has a maximum body diameter of 1 metre (3.3 ft). Intended targets are hardened bunkers, command, control and communications; airfield facilities; port facilities; AMS/ammunition storage; ships in ports/at sea and bridges.
The missile also includes counter measures as a self-defence mechanism.

Mission planners program the missile with the target, air defence locations and planned ground path, then the missile uses a low terrain-hugging flight path guided by INS, IBN, TRN and GPS to the proximity of the target, although it is capable of navigating over long distances without GPS support. Once there the missile commences a climb manoeuver to an altitude intended to achieve the best probability of target acquisition and penetration. During the cruise flight a high resolution infra-red camera can support the navigation by using IBN and is also used for GPS-free target attack. The missile attempts to match a camera image with the planned 3D target model. If it cannot, it defaults to the navigation systems or, if there is a high risk of collateral damage, it will steer to a pre-designated crash point instead of risking an inaccurate attack with undesired consequences.

The stealthy missile has a range in excess of 380 kilometers.It is powered by a turbojet at Mach 0.8 and can be carried by most aircraft in the world. The missile features an initial penetrating charge to clear soil or enter a bunker, then a variable delay fuze to control detonation of the main warhead. Warhead packages are easily interchangeable. The missile weighs 1,300 kilograms (2,866 lb) has a maximum body diameter of 0.48m and a wingspan of 3 metres (9.8 ft). Intended targets are command, control and communications; airfields; ports and power stations; AMS/ammunition storage; ships/submarines in port; bridges and other high-value strategic targets.

It is a fire and forget missile, programmed before launch. Once launched, the missile cannot be controlled, its target information changed or be self-destroyed. Mission planners programme the missile with the target air defences and target. The missile follows a path semi-autonomously, on a low flight path guided by GPS and terrain matching to the area of the target.

Close to the target, the missile bunts, climbing to an altitude intended to achieve the best probability of target identification and penetration. During the bunt, the nose cone is jettisoned to allow a high resolution infrared camera to observe the target area (the bunt enlarges the field of vision). The missile then tries to locate its target based upon its targeting information. If it can not, and there is a high risk of collateral damage, it will fly to a crash point instead of risking inaccuracy.

The Damocles by design is stealthy with the addition of radar absorbent materials. This stealth capability gives the Damocles a radar cross section 95% lower than traditional non stealth cruise missiles. The combination of stealth characteristics and low altitude flight profile reduce the chance of interception by orders of magnitude.

The Blackout is a special-purpose munition for attacking electrical power infrastructure. Blackout functions by dispensing a number of submunitions which in turn disperse large numbers of chemically treated carbon graphite filaments which short-circuit electrical power distribution equipment such as transformers and switching stations. The weapon is sometimes referred to as a "soft bomb" since its effects are largely confined to the targetted electrical power facility, with minimal risk of collateral damage.

The Blackout detonates over its target and disperses huge numbers of fine carbon filaments, each far smaller than a human hair. The filaments are only a few hundredths of an inch thick and can float in the air like a dense cloud. When the carbon fiber filaments dispensed from the submunition contact transformers and other high voltage equipment, a short circuit occurs and an arc is created when the current flows through the fiber, which is vaporized. The graphite, which is a conductor of electric current, is coated with other materials to enhance these effects. At the spot where the electric field is strongest, a discharge is initiated, and electrons rapidly form an ionized channel that conducts electricity. At this stage current can flow and an arc forms. This causes instantaneous local melting of a certain amount of the material at the surface of the two conductors. If the current involved is strong enough, these arcs can cause injury or start a fire. Fires can also be started by overheated equipment or by conductors that carry too much current. Extremely high-energy arcs can cause an explosion that sends fragmented metal flying in all directions.

In tests Blackout has been shown to have the ability to disable all components of an above ground electrical grid in an area of five square miles per warhead, depending on wind conditions. Blackout was further shown to have an unintended ability to effect self contained military grade electronics if unshielded against this type of attack if within the effects cone of engagement.

Loki was developed as a small, low cost, expendable air-launched decoy to enhance the survivability of friendly aircraft and to aid in establishing air superiority by diluting and confusing surface-based and airborne enemy air defense systems. The main objective of the Loki is to create confusion on the battlefield or "Fog-Of-War".

It uses a GPS-aided navigation system, and can fly missions with up to 256 predefined waypoints. The mission profile is preprogrammed, but can be redefined by the pilot of the launching aircraft until immediately before launch. Loki's main mission payload is a Signature Augmentation Subsystem with various active radar enhancers for a range of frequencies. The SAS can simulate any aircraft in the inventory, from large-RCS B-52Hs to low-observable stealth aircraft. Loki also carries systems designed to simulate the infrared signatures of your nations combat aircraft.

The Demonic Cluster Bomb consists of a tactical munition dispenser that contains 10 submunitions. Each submunition contains four hockey-puck-shaped sensor-fused projectiles called Skeets. These detect targets, such as tanks, armored personnel carriers, trucks and other support vehicles, and fire an explosively formed penetrator.

The 40 Skeets scan an area of 1,500 feet (460 m) by 500 feet (150 m) using infrared and laser sensors until it finds a target. If it fails to find a target, it self-destructs 50 feet (15 m) above the ground. The targeting system is designed to mutilate dismounted troops while preventing any rounds that do not explode immediately from hurting civilians later. There is also a back-up timer that enables the Skeet to time-out seconds after hitting the ground. These two redundant self-destruct modes results in an unexploded-ordnance rate of less than 1%.

As the HFX-99 approaches its designated aim-point, the dispenser skin is severed into three panels by an explosive cutting charge. The slipstream peels away these panels, exposing the 10 submunitions. An airbag ejects the forward five submunitions, then five in the aft bay. Following a preset timeline, the submunitions deploy parachutes so that they are spaced about 100 feet (30 m) apart. Then each submunition releases its chute, fires a rocket motor that stops its descent and spins it on its longitudinal axis, and releases pairs of Skeets 90 degrees apart. Each spinning Skeet makes a coning motion that allows it to scan a circular area on the ground.

The laser sensor detects changes in height such as the distinctive contour of a vehicle. At the same time, infrared sensors detect heat signatures, such as those emitted by the engine of a target vehicle. When the combination of height contours and heat signatures indicative of a target are detected, the Skeet detonates, firing an explosively formed penetrator (EFP) into the target vehicle at high speed, enabling it to penetrate armor plating and destroy what is underneath the armor plating. Note that SFW disables targets using the kinetic energy of the EFP, not the blast of an explosive charge.
The weapon is deployed from altitudes of 200 feet (60 m) Above Ground Level (AGL) to 20,000 feet (6100 m) Mean Sea Level (MSL) at speeds of 250 to 650 knots (460 to 1,200 km/h).

The Crossbow has several guidance modes and achieves its longest range by using mid-course updates from the launching aircraft via datalink as it climbs to cruise between 80,000 ft (24,000 m) and 100,000 ft (30,000 m) at Mach 5.5. Crossbow uses its high altitude to gain gravitational potential energy, which is later converted into kinetic energy as the missile dives at high velocity towards its target during which it activates its active radar to provide terminal guidance. Mid-course correction is made possible by digital technology, to compute a collision course to the target. It can be updated by the launching aircraft, before also using an active seeker in its final phase. Propulsion is provided by a solid propellant rocket motor, and lethality by a high explosive warhead.

Crossbow was developed to meet tactical aircraft and cruise missile threats at longer distance than current air to air missiles used globally. This further engagement envelope allows the launching aircraft to also remain secure during launch without fear of enemy launch of air to air missiles in retaliation. Crossbow is a true first strike weapon for the modern air to air engagement.

Sea Launch is a spacecraft launch service that uses a mobile sea platform for equatorial launches of commercial payloads on specialized Cavalier rockets. As of April 2009 it had assembled and launched thirty rockets, with two failures and one partial failure.
The sea-based launch system means the rockets can be fired from the optimum position on Earth's surface, considerably increasing payload capacity and reducing launch costs compared to land-based systems.
The Sea Launch consortium was established in 2007 and their first rocket was launched in March 2008.
All commercial payloads have been communications satellites intended for geostationary transfer orbit with such customers as Intech, TVHRC, Rondsat, and Covina Dynamics.
The launcher and its payload are assembled on a purpose-built ship Sea Launch Commander in Callaway Beach, HRC. It is then positioned on top of the self-propelled platform Ocean Odyssey and moved to the equatorial Pacific Ocean for launch, with the Sea Launch Commander serving as command center.
The Sea Launch consortium claims that their launch-related operating costs are lower than a land-based equivalent due in part to reduced staff requirements. The platform and command ship have 310 crew members.
Following rocket tests, both ships then sail about 4,828 km to the equator at 154° West Longitude, 0°N 154°W, in international waters. The platform travels the distance in about 11 days, the command ship in about eight days.
With the platform ballasted to its launch depth of 22 m, the hangar is opened, the rocket is mechanically moved to a vertical position, and the launch platform crew evacuates to the command ship which moves about five kilometers away. Then, with the launch platform unmanned, the rocket is fueled and launched. The final ten seconds before launch are called out simultaneously in English and the contracting nation or corporations language of choice.

The Artemis is a three-stage, solid propellant, inertially guided ballistic missile with a range of seven thousand miles.Artemis is more sophisticated with a significantly greater payload capability than previous generations of sea launched ballistic missiles. All three stages of the Artemis are made of light and very strong graphite epoxy, whose integrated structure mean considerable weight savings. The missile's range is increased by the aerospike, a telescoping outward extension that reduces frontal drag by about 50 percent.

The launch from the submarine occurs below the ocean surface at a depth of 60 feet. The missiles are ejected from their tubes by igniting an explosive charge in a separate container which is separated by seventeen titanium alloy pinnacles activated by a double alloy steam system. The energy from the blast is directed to a water tank, which is flash-vaporized to steam. The subsequent pressure spike is strong enough to eject the missile out of the tube and give it enough momentum to reach and clear the surface of the water. The missile is pressurized with nitrogen to prevent the intrusion of water into any internal spaces, which could damage the missile or add weight, destabilizing the missile. Should the missile fail to breach the surface of the water, there are several safety mechanisms that can either deactivate the missile before launch or guide the missile through an additional phase of launch. Inertial motion sensors are activated upon launch, and when the sensors detect downward acceleration after being blown out of the water, the first stage engine ignites. The aerospike, a telescoping outward extension that halves aerodynamic drag, is then deployed, and the boost phase begins. When the third stage motor fires, within two minutes of launch, the missile is traveling faster than 20,000 ft/s (6,000 m/s), or 13,600 mph (21,600 km/h).

The missile attains a temporary low altitude orbit only a few minutes after launch. The Guidance system is an Inertial Guidance System with an additional Star-Sighting system, which is used to correct small positional errors that have accrued during the flight. GPS has been used on test flights but is assumed not to be functioning in the event of nuclear war.

Once the Star-sighting system has been completed, the missile deploys the multiple independent reentry vehicles as their individual targets come within range. The warhead section consists of six (or 14 in a maximum payload shorter-range configuration) independent reentry vehicles. A countermeasures package can also be added to the warhead section to defeat anti ballistic missile systems.

When both capabilities and price are taken into account the Artemis becomes the clear choice for your nations naval nuclear force. Highly accurate, easily maintained, and far less costly than comparable weapons systems the Artemis speaks for itself.

The Dagger is a land based strategic asset designed to be deployed in quantity against globally. It is equipped with multiple warheads to further increase the number of targets that can be effectively attacked. It can be targeted against major civilian population centers and enemy missile silos. This system has all the characteristics of an effective counterforce weapon; its high accuracy, long range, and multiple warheads can theoretically make a first strike possible. Its high accuracy compensates for the relatively low amount of warheads carried compared to other nations. The guidance unit can store two targets, enabling the missile to switch to a secondary target after launch if the primary cannot be reached for any reason.

The Dagger has a maximum range of 13,000 km (8078 miles) and carries a payload of three Reentry Vehicles (RVs). . The inertial navigation system provides it with an accuracy of about 200 m CEP, but an updated inertial guidance system gives it 80 m CEP. The missile is 18.2 m long with a diameter of 1.85 m and a launch weight of 34,468 kg. The missile technically has a three-stage solid propellant design, though it has a quasi-powered fourth stage. Its Multiple Independent Reentry Vehicles (MIRV) platform is designed in such a way that it is arguably a fourth stage should a customer wish.

Each Dagger is housed in a concrete silo. Being a solid fuel system little maintaining is needed. The Dagger has been designed to be an affordable, highly accurate, and survivable weapons system. The price point has been set so that even developing nations can afford to field an effective nuclear force comparable to much larger nations.

Satellites Systems:

Primary mission: Strategic and tactical missile launch detection
Weight: 5,250 lb (2,380 kg)
Orbit altitude: 22,000 miles (35,900 km)
Power plant: Solar arrays generate 1,485 watts
Height: 32.8 ft (10 m) on orbit; 28 ft (8.5 m) at launch
Diameter: 22 ft (6.7 m) on orbit; 13.7 ft (4.2 m) at launch
Date first deployed: 1985 with upgraded models released every fifth year
Unit Cost: $400 million

Today's Static Sentry satellite weighs 5,200 pounds, requires 1250 watts of power, and is approximately 33 feet long, 14 feet in diameter, Recent technological improvements in sensor design includes above-the-horizon capability for full hemispheric coverage and improved resolution. Increased on-board signal-processing capability improves clutter rejection enhancing reliability and survivability.

The Static Senty-I (Improved) satellites incorporate the upgraded sensors of the prototype satellites, as well as improved resistance to laser attack.(6) The Static Sentry satellites also carry a laser communications package that enable the satellites to relay warning information to each other.This will greatly reduce the vulnerability of this system to attacks on its ground stations, since all the satellites are able to communicate with any of the system's ground stations. However, earlier versions did not incorporate this laser communication systems, due to technical problems.Instead, developmental prototype number one carried an experimental sensor package for the HRC Aerospace Command to assess the utility of ultraviolet sensors for tracking missiles.

The sensor and the spacecraft, which together comprise the satellite, are placed in geosynchronous-equatorial orbit so that the telescope is pointed toward the earth and rotated at six revolutions per minute. To provide a scanning motion for the infrared (IR) sensor, the satellite is spun about its Earth-pointing axis. The axis of the satellite's rotation is normal to the earth's surface. A prime requirement of the spacecraft is to provide attitude control to maintain the pointing direction accurately. Satellite-spin momentum is reduced to a nominal value of zero by introducing an equal and opposite momentum achieved through operation of a Reaction Wheel. The resulting "zero momentum" satellite is attitude controlled by gas thrusters.

The basics functions of the spacecraft are to: provide a spin-controlled, stable, Earth pointing vehicle for the mission data sensing and processing equipment; furnish the on-board functions required to position, control, and maintain the satellite in its proper Earth orbit; furnish, condition, and control the electrical power for all satellite requirements; provide secure downlink capabilities to transmit mission data, State-of-Health (SOH), and other relevant information to the ground for final processing; and provide a secure uplink command receiving, processing, and distribution capability for both spacecraft and sensor ground-generated commands. The spacecraft consists of the following principal systems: structure; Communication and Command and Mission Data Message; Electrical Power and Distribution; Propulsion; Attitude Control; and Thermal.

The sensor's purpose is to detect, locate, and identify targets of interest that are intense sources of IR radiation. The Static Sentry geosynchronous satellites & other spacecraft have provided continuous warning of launches & explosions during past military operations for the HRC Ministry of Defense.

At any given second each Static Sentry within an orbital detection grid of supporting Static Sentry's is capable of detecting and processing imagery of up to 26 independent missile Launches, 186 high explosive events, and 1400 static IR events. This translates into one satellite being able to provide continuous launch detection and early warning against a small to medium sized nation. From a cost benefit outlook this may well be one of the wisest investments your nation could possibly make.


The OS-13 Mirage can be imagined as an orbiting telescope, with a large rocket engine attached to provide maneuverability. Similar to the Danwright Space Telescope, the Mirage is 13.25 feet in diameter, and with addition of its maneuvering support module, is over 43 feet long (compared to the 34 feet Space Telescope with its 10 foot diameter telescope barrel).The dry weight (minus fuel) of the Mirage is 22,500 lbs including fuel. The total weight of the Mirage has grown significantly, from previous generations of photographic intelligence satellites. This additional weight comes in the form of propellant which has gone from 7,379 lbs to 11,660 lbs that can be used to prolong the operating life of the Mirage, to maneuver to improve coverage of areas on the Earth of particular interest, and to maneuver to evade anti-satellite interceptors. It also uses two of its six propellant tanks to complete orbital insertion. Although the Mirage was originally designed to be place into orbit, serviced, and refueled in orbit by the the HRC manned space missions, the Templar Launch system and Templar-1A has until recently been the primary launch vehicle for the Mirage which will now be launched by newer launch systems. The Mirage carries several standard sun, earth and horizon sensor in addition to side payload bays.

The two curved body hugging solar arrays consist of three segments each measuring 96.7 x 79.1 inches and are attached to a deploying boom mechanism that allows the panels to be rotated in one plane to track the sun. The Solar arrays are made of battle hardened Gallium Arsenate.

The optical sensors on the Mirage are similar to that of previous generations. These electronic CCD Charged Coupling Device electro optical imaging electronics cameras provide real-time transmission of images to ground stations via military communications relay satellites. The Mirage sensors operate in visible and near infrared light, as well as thermal infrared to detect heat sources. These sensors incorporate low-light-level image intensifiers to provide night-time images. The Mirage has an infrared capability superior to that of the previous generations, with the advantage in infrared primarily for camouflage detection, for looking at buried structures, for looking at differential thermal inertia in the target area, for trying to determine which factories are operating and which factories are not. In addition, it carries the Improved Crystal Metric System (ICMS) to provide imagery with reseau crosses to aid in terrain mapping.

The Mirage's sophisticated electronics provides sharper images than earlier satellites, comparable in quality to the best of the film return satellites, with a resolution approaching ten centimeters. The primary mirror, on the Mirage is about 124 inches in diameter. The orbital axis positioning of the spacecraft with the rear BUS-1 pointed approximately 15-30 degrees from the vertical enabling the Mirage to take pictures at very high slant angles of obliquity, imaging objects hundreds of kilometers away from its flight path.

The satellite is hardened against nuclear effects and laser weapons. It has some ability to operate without ground control, the CCD’s are composed of gallium arsenide instead of silicon, and the lenses are coated to be laser resistant. Mirage carries On-Board Attack Warning System (SOARS), with sensors to detect attack by microwaves, lasers and projectiles, warning ground control to enact countermeasures.

Fortitude was designed to be a joint service satellite communications system that provides worldwide secure, jam resistant and low probability of detection nuclear-event resistant communications for all forces across the spectrum of conflict.

The multi-satellite constellation links command authorities with a wide variety of resources, including ships, submarines, aircraft, land vehicles and manned-portable systems.

Fortitude is the most advanced military communications satellite system available for export to date and represents the future of military communications capability. An operational Fortitude satellite constellation consists of four satellites positioned around the Earth in geosynchronous orbits. Each mid-latitude satellite weighs approximately 10,000 pounds (4,536 kilograms) and have a design life of 10 years.

Each Fortitude satellite serves as a smart switchboard in space by directing traffic from terminal to terminal anywhere on the planet. Since the satellite actually processes the communications signal and can link with other Fortitude satellites through crosslinks, the requirement for ground controlled switching is significantly reduced. The satellite establishes, maintains, reconfigures and disassembles required communications circuits as directed by the users. Fortitude terminals provide encrypted voice, data, teletype or facsimile communications. A key goal of Fortitude is to provide interoperable communications among the users of Army, Navy, and Air Force terminals.

Geographically dispersed mobile and fixed control stations provide survivable and enduring operational command and control for the Fortitude constellation. The Fortitude system is composed of three segments: space (the satellites), terminal (the users), and mission control.

Fortitude is known as "the FedEx of communications systems--when it absolutely, positively has to be there, Fortitude is the system." All satellites are equipped tp carry a low data rate (LDR) payload. The LDR payload can transmit 75 to 2,400 bps of data over 192 channels in the extremely high frequency (EHF) range. Encryption technology and satellite-to-satellite crosslinks provide secure communications, data exchange and global coverage. Subsystems further provide both LDR and medium data rate (MDR) payloads. The MDR payload can transmit 4,800 bps to 1.544 Mbps of data over 32 channels. The higher data rates provide the user the ability to transmit large amounts of data in a short period of time. Fortitude provides continuous 24-hour LDR and MDR coverage to the warfighter.

A key feature of the Fortitude system is the use of interoperable terminals by the warfighters of the purchasing nations armed forces. For example, sea-based terminals can be used to upload data onto cruise missiles carried aboard submarines and guided missile destroyers in real time. Land-based terminals provide communications and data exchange for the mobile, ground-based warfighter.

The Cougar, while externally not very different from existing IFVs, incorporates a number of advantages and state-of-the-art technologies. The most obvious of these is the incorporated ability to flexibly mount different armour. Another feature is the compact, one-piece crew cabin that enables direct crew interaction ("face-to-face"; like replacing the driver or gunner in case of a medical emergency) and minimizes the protected volume. The cabin is air conditioned, NBC-proof with internal nuclear and chemical sensors and has a fire suppressing system using non-toxic agents. The engine compartment has its own fire extinguishing system. The only compromise of the otherwise nearly cuboid cabin is the driver station, located in a protrusion in front of the gunner, in front of the turret.
One measure to achieve the one-piece cabin is the use of an unmanned, double-asymmetrical turret, while slightly off-center turrets are common in IFVs, Cougar's turret is on the left-hand side of the vehicle, while the main cannon is mounted on the right side of the turret and thus on the middle axis of the hull when the turret is in the forward position.

The outer hull (minus the turret) is very smooth and low to minimize bullet traps and general visual signature. The whole combat-ready vehicle in its base configuration will be air transportable in the C-65 Aurora tactical airlifter. Its 3+6 persons crew capability is comparable to other vehicles of comparable weight.

The primary armament is a 30 mm MK 18/ABM (Air Burst Munitions) autocannon, which has a rate of fire of 200 rounds per minute and an effective range of 3,000 m. There are currently two ammunition types, directly available via the autocannon's dual ammunition feed. One is a sub-calibre, fin-stabilised APFSDS-T (T for tracer), with high penetration capabilities, mainly for use against medium armoured vehicles. The second is a full-calibre, multi-purpose, Kinetic Energy-Timed Fuse (KETF) munition, designed with the air burst capability (depending on the fuse setting) of ejecting a cone of sub-munitions. Both ammunitions can be chosen differently from shot to shot as the weapon fires from an open bolt, meaning no cartridge is inserted until the trigger is used. The ammunition capacity is 400 rounds; 200 ready to fire and 200 in storage.

The secondary armament is a coaxially mounted 5.56 mm machine gun firing at 850 rounds per minute with an effective range of 1,000 m. The ammunition capacity is 2,000 rounds; 1,000 ready to fire and 1,000 in storage. While this is a smaller weapon than the standard of using a 7.62 mm caliber MG as secondary armament, it offers advantages because the crew can use the ammunition in their individual firearms as well. In situations where the lower penetration of the 5.56 mm rounds is an issue, the high ammunition load of the main gun enables the vehicle crew to use one or two main gun rounds instead. The gun housing can also host the 7.62 mm machine gun.

To combat main battle tanks, helicopters and infrastructure targets such as bunkers, the Cougar is equipped with a turret-mounted missile launcher, which carries two missiles. This launched is capable of operating the TOW, Hellfire, and Javelin systems. In addition to the usual smoke-grenade launchers with 8 shots, there is a 6-shot 76 mm launcher at the back of the vehicle for close-in defence. The main back door can be opened halfway and enables two of the passengers to scout and shoot from moderate protection.

Cougar was designed to easily accommodate additional armor. It was initially planned to offer three protection classes which are wholly or partly interchangeable. Protection class A is the basic vehicle, at 31.5 metric tons combat-ready weight air transportable in the C-65. Protection class C consists of two large side panels that cover almost the whole flanks of the vehicle and act as skirts to the tracks, a near-complete turret cover and armor plates for most of the vehicle's roof. The side panels are a mix of composite and spaced armor. It adds about 9 metric tons to the gross weight. Originally, there was also a protection class B designed for transport by rail. However, it became obvious that class C lies within the weight and dimension limits for train/ship transportation, thus class B was scrapped.

The Cougar is protected by AMAP composite armour, the AMAP-B module is used for protection against kinetic energy threats, while AMAP-SC offers protection against shaped charges.
A single C-65 Aurora aircraft could fly 5 class A Cougar's into a theater, with a second aircraft transporting the class C armor kits and simple lifting equipment. Subsequently, the Cougar's could be ready in armor class C within a short time.

The basic armour can resist direct hits from 14.5 mm rounds, the most powerful HMG cartridges commonly found on most battlefields, and is capable of defeating hollow charge warheads. The front armour is able to withstand 30 mm APFSDS projectiles. In protection class C, the flanks are up-armored to about the same level of protection as is the front, while the roof armor is able to withstand artillery or mortar bomblets.

The whole vehicle is protected against heavy blast mines (up to 10 kg) and projectile charges from below while still retaining 450 mm ground clearance. Almost all equipment within the cabin, including the seats, has no direct contact to the floor, which adds to crew and technical safety. All cabin roof hatches are of the side-slide type which make them easier to open manually, even when they are obstructed by debris. The exhaust is mixed with fresh air and vented at the rear left side. Together with a special IR-suppressing paint, this aims at reducing the thermal signature of the IFV.
Another crew safety measure is that the main fuel tanks are placed outside of the vehicle hull itself, mounted heavily armored within the running gear carriers. While this may pose a higher penetration risk to the tanks, it is unlikely that both tanks will be penetrated at the same time, enabling the vehicle to retreat to a safer position in case of a breach. There is also a collector tank within the vehicle to which acts as a reserve tank in case of a double tank breach. The Cougar is probably the best protected IFV today.

The Cougar offers improvements in situational awareness. The fully stabilized 360° periscope with 6 different zoom stages offers a direct glass optic link to either the commander or the gunner. Since this is an optical line it had to be placed in the turret center, one of the reasons why the main cannon is mounted off-center on the turret. Via an additional CCD camera the picture from this line can also be fed into the on-board computer network and displayed on all electronic displays within the vehicle. Besides that, the periscope offers an optronic thermal vision mode and a wide-angle camera with 3 zoom stages to assist the driver, as well as a laser range finder. The whole array is hunter-killer capable; the commander also has 5 vision blocks.

The gunner optics, which can be completely protected with a slide hatch, are mounted coaxially to the main gun. The gunner has a thermal vision camera and laser range finder (identical to those on the periscope) and an optronic day sight, rounded off with a vision- and a glass block. The driver has 3 of them, as well as an image intensifier and one display for optronic image feeds. Even the passenger cabin has a hatch and 3 vision blocks on the rear right side of the vehicle, one of them in a rotary mount. The rear cabin also has 2 electronic displays.

All in all, the Cougar has an additional five external cameras at its rear in swing-mounts for protection while not in use. Apart from the glass optic periscope view directly accessible only by the commander and gunner (but indirectly via the CCD camera), ALL optronic picture feeds can be displayed on every electronic display within the vehicle. The provisions for the rear cabin enable the passengers to be more active than previously in assisting the vehicle crew either directly through the vision blocks and hatches, or by observing one or more optronic feeds. The whole crew has access to the onboard intercom.

Traditionally, IFVs are expected to interact with MBTs on the battlefield. In reality, many IFVs are not mobile enough to keep up the pace of an MBT. The Cougar aims to close this gap with several key technologies. Firstly, its compact, lightweight MTU Diesel engine is unusually strong at 800 kW nominal output, which may make it the most powerful engine in use on an IFV today. Even at the 43 t maximum weight in protection class C, it has a higher kW/t ratio than the MBT's it is supposed to supplement.
The vehicle has a five-road wheel decoupled running gear and uses a hydropneumatic suspension to improve cross-country performance while reducing crew and material stress by limiting vibrations and noise. The road wheels are asymmetrical, mounted closer to each other at the front. This is to counter the front-heavy balance, inevitable because of the heavy frontal armor as well as the engine and drive train which are also situated at the front.

Main Battle Tanks and Light Battle Tanks:

range 280 mi (451 km)
Speed Road: 45 mph (72 km/h)
Off road: 30 mph (48 km/h)
Cost 4,000,000

The basic hull of the M4 is made of welded aluminum alloy, with a unique modular armoring system that allows the vehicle to be equipped according to requirements. The Level I (basic) armor package is designed for the rapid deployment role and can be airdropped from a medium sized cargo aircraft and protects the vehicle against small-arms fire and shell splinters. The Level II armor package can still be carried by a medium sized cargo aircraft, but must be airlanded and is designed for use by light forces in a more serious threat environment, while level III armor is designed for contingency operations and is supposed to provide protection against light handheld anti-tank weapons. Level III armor cannot be carried by medium sized cargo aircraft. All versions are air-transportable by the C-65 Aurora Cargolifter.

The Cheetah is armed with a rifled autoloading 105 mm cannon main gun with a 7.62 mm machine-gun mounted co-axially. The main gun has a rate of fire of approximately 12 rounds per minute, with a ready capacity of 21 rounds with 9 more in stowage. Power is provided by a diesel engine developing 580 hp.

The M4 Cheetah is not a tank -- it may look like a tank, but it's not a tank. It's a thin-skinned vehicle with a gun on it. The vehicle was designed to support the infantry from a position where it can fire and be behind dirt with an elevated gun and to fight in areas where its not going to run into tanks. It has more than one role, and it just doesn't kill tanks. It kills other kinds of targets. It has to be able to bust bunkers, shoot into bunkers, go into urban areas and shoot into windows, and have a round that will spray shrapnel -- that will "take out" people who are firing hand-held weapons or machine guns. Fire control is provided by a digital fire control system with microprocessors and a databus similar to that on modern Main Battle Tanks. The gunner's primary sight is a day/night thermal sight and integrated laser range-finder in a stabilized mount.

Its unique features include the use of modular appliqué bolt-on armor that is not used in a load-bearing application. The armored gun system used titanium appliqué armor. The Cheetah can be fitted with three levels of protection:

Level I against shrapnel
Level II against armor piercing small arms and small cannon fire
Level III against cannon up to 30mm

When combined with modern infantry fighting vehicles the Cheetah increases lethality and capability ten fold. Cheetah provides a true armored punch to your mechanized infantry forces. In urban scenarios Cheetah has proven to be highly survivable.

Self Propelled Artillery:

Length: 7.53m
Width: 3.31m
Height: 3m
Weight: 37 tons
Engine: Gas Turbine engine producing 1500 Horsepower
Range before refuel: 200 miles
Crew: 3
Ammunition Storage: 48 Rounds
Cost: 8,000,000

The Grizzly artillery system was intended to provide enhanced survivability, lethality and mobility and be more easily deployable and sustainable than current systems. A battery of six Grizzly's can deliver 15t of ammunition in less than five mins. The gunners can control the entire loading and firing process from the safety of the computerised cockpit under armour and nuclear biological and chemical warfare protection.

Grizzly's 155mm self-propelled howitzer, has fully automated ammunition handling and firing that allows firing of the 48 on-board rounds at rates of up to ten rounds a minute to ranges in excess of 40km. The first rounds of a mission can be fired in 15 to 30 seconds. Grizzly also has the capability to fire multiple rounds to achieve simultaneous impact on target (MRSI). One Crusader vehicle can fire up to eight rounds to strike a single target at the same time. The digital fire control system calculates separate firing solutions for each of the eight projectiles.

Grizzly's command center is equipped with onboard tactical systems including decision aids, and advanced position and navigational aids and an automated IFF system. The Grizzly sends and receives real-time battlefield information through the advanced field artillery tactical data system (AFATDS) and it can communicate directly with other combat vehicles. The secure data transmission network digitally links the howitzer, resupply vehicles and the rest of the battlefield to give every vehicle real time situational awareness.

Grizzly can deliver any type of round including high explosive, white phosphorus and smoke, DPICM, illumination and SADARM rounds. The full range of rounds available globally were tested and certified for use during stage II testing of the main gun. The Grizzly solid propellant armament system includes the cannon, gun mount, and a laser ignition system. The cannon tube is integral midwall cooled (IMC) which enables extremely high rates of fire. The cannon chamber and tube are chrome-plated to minimise wear and erosion. The chamber is compatible with the modular artillery charge system (MACS) solid propellant propulsion system.

The Grizzly's engine and hydropneumatic suspension give a road speed of up to 67km/h and a cross-country speed of 48km/h. The transmission allows automatic scheduling of engine speed and transmission ratio for fuel economy. The driving system features drive-by-wire, positional navigation and movement planning decision aids. A gas turbine engine is utilized giving the added benefits of being lighter and smaller with rapid acceleration, quieter running and no visible exhaust.

Special Use Artillery Ammunition:
Weight: 44 kg
Length: 805 mm
Caliber: 155 mm
Range (fired from Grizzly Artillery System): 22,500 m
SADARM submunition
Weight: 11.77 kg
Warhead: 1.5 kg LX-14
Length: 204.4 mm
Diameter: 147 mm
Descent rate: 17 m/s
Scan rate: 456 rpm
Cost: 50,000

SADARM is contained within a shell which is fired from a normal 155 mm artillery gun, with a nose-mounted fuse set to burst at 1,000 m above the target to release two SADARM submunitions. Once the submunition is ejected from the projectile, an initial ram-air parachute opens, to de-spin and slow the submunition. A second "vortex ring" parachute then deploys, to slowly spin the submunition, suspending it at approximately 30° from the vertical. As it spins, its sensors sweep a decreasing spiral track beneath the submunition to scan an area about 150 m in diameter. The sensors consist of a millimeter-wave radar and an infrared telescope. When the submunition detects a target, its 1.5 kg explosive charge is detonated, to project an explosively formed penetrator that has enough energy to penetrate the thin top armor of most main battle tanks up to a range of around 152 m. If the submunition reaches the ground before it finds a target it self-destructs.

The Silver Tooth round has a range of approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi) to 57 kilometres (35 mi) depending on configuration with a circular error probable (CEP) of around 20 metres (66 ft). The extended range is achieved through the use of folding glide fins, which allow the projectile to glide from the top of a ballistic arc towards the target. The accuracy is achieved through the use of a GPS guidance system. In contrast, standard 155 mm shells have a CEP of 200 metres (660 ft) to 300 metres (980 ft) at moderate ranges. The weapon can make first round strikes on targets up to 20 kilometres (12 mi) away.

Silver Tooth is used in to minimize collateral damage, when complex terrain limits the effectiveness of conventional projectiles, for targets beyond the range of standard munitions, for precise fires within 150 metres (490 ft) of assaulting troops, or when firing in a straight line from the launching cannon is limited by terrain.

Naval Systems:

For more than a fifty years, Trinity Sea Systems, a division of Trinity Aerospace has been designing, building, overhauling and repairing a wide variety of ships for the HRC Navy, Coast Guard and world navies. Today, TSS builds more ships, in more ship classes, than any other HRC naval shipbuilder. TSS is the HRC's sole industrial designer, builder and refueler of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, and one of only two companies capable of designing and building nuclear powered submarines. TSS is one of the leading providers of major surface warships such as destroyers, cruisers, high endurance cutters, and amphibious assault and transport ships.


TSS has the premier Marine Composite Research, Development and Construction Facility in the country, with over 20 years of composite shipbuilding expertise, and is constructing integrated masts and a composite superstructure for next-generation destroyer. In addition, TSS supports a variety of naval and commercial vessels with maintenance, repair and complex overhaul. Finally, with expertise in container construction and nuclear material handling, TSS provides services to energy, petrochemical and government customers.


TSS has facilities along the HRC coast and in Meteor Bay. We are the largest industrial employer in the tidewater area. Headquartered in the HRC capital of Santa Cruz. We have locations across the nation for both research and development.

TSS products have recently been approved for mass export by the HRC government. With that in mind new models will be added to the store front with great frequency. TSS invites you to browse our selection and allow us to supply all your naval needs now and in the future.

Aircraft Carriers:


Displacement: 118,000 tons
Length: 1,092 ft (333 m)
Beam: 134 ft (41 m)
Propulsion: N-5 liquid sodium cooled nuclear reactors
Speed: In excess of 30 kn (56 km/h; 35 mph)
Complement: 4,660
Armament: Surface-to-air missiles
Close-in weapon systems
Aircraft carried: 8 at full complement
Aviation facilities: 1,092 × 256 foot (333 × 78 m) flight deck
Cost: Seven Billion Dollars

TSS has used a suite of computer-aided design tools for the Continuum program, including a software suite for simulation of the production processes and a virtual environment package.

The hull design is very similar to that of previous generations of HRC carriers and with the same number of decks. The island is smaller and moved further towards the aft of the ship and has reduced radar cross section.

The island has a composite mast with planar array radars, a volume search radar operating in the S band and a multi-function radar at X band and also carries the stern-facing joint precision approach and landing system, which is based on local area differential global positioning system (GPS), rather than radar.

The aircraft carrier traditionally carries the flag officer and 70 staff of the carrier battle group. The flag bridge which has previously been accommodated in the carrier's island has been relocated to a lower deck in order to minimise the size of the island.

The ship's internal configuration and flight deck designs have been significantly changed. The lower decks incorporate a flexible rapidly reconfigurable layout allowing different layouts and installation of new equipment in command, planning and administration areas.

The requirement to build in weight and stability allowance will accommodate the added weight of new systems that will be installed over the 30-year operational life of the ship. The removal of one aircraft elevator unit and reducing the number of hangar bays from three to two have contributed to a reduction of the weight of the Continuum Class.

The carrier can be armed with anti aircraft missile systems, close in weapons systems missile defense units, or a combination of other systems unique to each purchasing nations. Allowances have been made for ease in modification of newer systems integration.

The carrier will be capable of carrying up to about 75 aircraft including the F-209 Rapier UAV, F-220 Diablo, and the RAH-13 Habu. Catapult and arrester gear is standardized to allow for aircraft from the global market place to be utilized in the Continuum's complement of aircraft.

The requirement for a higher sortie rate at 160 sorties a day with surges to a maximum of 220 sorties a day in times of crisis and intense air warfare activity, has led to design changes in the flight deck.

The flight deck has a relocated and smaller island, and there are three rather than four deck edge elevators. Deck extensions also increase the aircraft parking areas. The aircraft service stations are located near the 18 refuelling and rearming stops.

Electromagnetic catapults are used in place of traditional steam catapults. These offer the potential benefit of finer aircraft acceleration control, which leads to lower stresses in the aircraft and pilots and provides a slower launch speed for unmanned air vehicles and allows a wider window of wind-over-deck speed required for the launch sequence.

In addition to catapults the arrestor gear used at landing are also electromagnetic. The electro-magnetic motor applies control to the synthetic arrestor cable to reduce the maximum tensions in the cable and reduce the peak load on the arrestor hook and on the aircraft fuselage.

The flow of weapons to the aircraft stops on the flight deck has been upgraded to accommodate the higher sortie rates. The ship carries stores of missiles and cannon rounds for fighter aircraft, bombs and air-to-surface missiles for strike aircraft, and torpedoes and depth charges for anti-submarine warfare aircraft.

Weapons elevators take the weapons systems from the magazines to the weapons handling and weapons assembly areas on the 02-level deck (below the flight deck) and express weapons elevators are installed between the handling and assembly areas and the flight deck.

TSS naval planners outlined a requirement for a minimum 150% increase in the power-generation capacity for the Continuum class carries. The increased power capacity is needed for the four electro-magnetic aircraft launchers and for future systems such as directed energy weapons that might be feasible during the carrier's 30-year lifespan.

The Continuum is outfitted with two nuclear reactors. Each reactor is rated to not require replacement of nuclear material for 30 years. Liquid sodium is used as the coolant medium bring about substantial increase in thermal efficiency. Natural convection currents are used, doing away with the need for traditional coolant pumps.

We at TSS feel the Continuum Class is the answer to any navies search for a capital warship. The enhanced ablities and efficiencies designed into the class mark this as a true titan of the seas. We welcome you to join the family of navies globally who have already added the Continuum to their national defense equation.


Trinity Sea Systems is pleased to present an economical and unique weapons system to the world market. Understanding the cost of the modern aircraft carrier and its blue water use reveals one major fact: large nuclear powered aircraft carriers are a capital investment that is ill suited to coastal operations. The modern nuclear powered aircraft carrier is a tool of power projection and ill suited for use in smaller theaters or for local sea lane defense. With this in mind TSS set out to design a smaller class of aircraft carrier for littoral use. TSS proudly presents the CVL-01 Sea Lion.

Displacement: 22,500 tonnes empty
27,000 tons full load
Length: 248 meters
Beam: 38 m
Draft: 7.5 m
Propulsion: Jet turbine drive, two shafts, 112,000 hp
Speed: 30 knots (56 km/h)
Complement: Up to 2,000 with crew and airwing.
Armament: Mounting point for three antiaircraft missile systems. Three rapid fire antiship missile defense systems.
Aircraft carried: 25 fixed or rotary wing aircraft.
Cost: 500,000,000

The Sea Lion is equipped for littoral operations in coastal areas, but can serve a blue water function in conjunction with a naval task force. Four missions were considered in the design of the Sea Lion: Antisubmarine warfare, coastal defense of regional waters, air support of amphibious landing troops, and escort of merchant traffic in contested sea lanes. With these missions at its core purpose reductions in size, cost, and capability over a modern super carrier were possible.

The Sea Lion is constructed of high tensile steel sandwiched between layers of kevlar belting. A modular construction process is utilized resulting in faster build times and reduction in construction and fitting costs. This modular design and construction method allows for flexibility in mission outfitting. Exchanging modules can be easily accomplished days while in port. This allows a fully customizable weapons platform.

Steps were taken in the Sea Lions design to reduce to a degree the radar cross section. In order to keep costs from spiraling out of control minimal reductions in RCS were made. This reduces the detectable range of the Sea Lion on the order of 15%.

Sea Lion while deployed is capable of embarking a mixed air wing. Examples of units proven to be deployable on the Sea Lion are the F-35 VSTOL, Sea Harrier, V-22 Osprey, UH-60, and CH-53, and the F-209 UAV. Sufficient storage ability is available for fuel and weapons for the deployed air wing to sustain continuous combat operations without resupply for 15 days assuming four sorties per day per aircraft.

To support operations at sea and in support of land forces a full array of communications are fitted. Satellite, UHF, ELF, and Blue Green Laser Communications are on board. The Sea Lion is a truly networked platform with all systems being tied into a wide spectrum computer information and warfare system.

Sea Lion is equipped with a full complement of defensive countermeasures. Chaff and thermal decoys, anti torpedo masking devices, and radar jammers all assist in the defense of this weapons platform. Due to the modular design upgrade for future systems is easily accomplished.

When viewed on a cost plus basis the economies of scale for Sea Lion become obvious. A modern super carrier can deploy an air wing of eighty aircraft at a ship alone cost of 5-8 billion dollars. Ten Sea Lions deployed together would be capable of deploying 250 aircraft for a ship alone cost of five billion dollars. This shows that the smaller littoral carrier can be a true force multiplier. We at TSS feel that the Sea Lion is a tailor made solution to both the developing nation seeking a naval air arm, and the established nation seeking a carrier solution without the dramatic price tag. We welcome you to add Sea Lion to you nations navy.

Mako class ships are specifically constructed from a survivability-enhanced design that affords passive protection to personnel and vital systems. This design provides protection against underwater shock, nuclear air blasts, fragment incursions into vital spaces, radar detection, electronic countermeasures, gun and missile attacks and a Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) attack. A comprehensive Collective Protection System guards against nuclear, chemical, or biological agents. The ship's damage control features and constructional design make Mako the most "survivable" surface ship in the world.

All-steel construction is used. Extensive top-side armor is placed around vital combat systems and machinery spaces. The bulkheads are constructed of steel from the waterline to the pilot house. The bulkheads are designed with double-spaced plate construction for fragment protection. The frontal plate causes fragments to break up and the backup plate stops the fragments from causing further damage to the interior of the ship. Phased Array radar combat system equipment rooms are protected by Kevlar shielding. And, topside weight is reduced by incorporating an aluminum mast.

Acoustic, infrared, and radar signatures have been reduced, and vital shipboard systems are hardened against electro-magnetic pulse and over-pressure damage. Sound isolators or "shock absorbers" have been placed on the reduction gears, giving the ship an added advantage when pursuing submarines. State-of-the-art propulsion and damage control systems are managed by an all-new data multi-plexing system. Fire detectors and increased Halon protection add to improved survivability.

TSS builds Mako destroyers using modular techniques pioneered by the shipyard in previous designs, and refined during two decades of assembly line construction of destroyers, cruisers, and amphibious assault ships for the HRC Navy. The ships also benefit from Trinity Sea Systems pioneering efforts to integrate advanced computer technology into ship design and construction. The design process is accomplished using a three-dimensional Computer-Aided Design (CAD) system, which is linked with an integrated Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) production network of host-based computers and localized minicomputers throughout the shipyard. The system produces digital data used by the CAM equipment to electronically direct the operation of numerically-controlled manufacturing equipment cutting steel plates, bending pipe, and laying out sheetmetal assemblies, and supporting other manufacturing processes. The technology significantly enhances design efficiency, and reduces the number of manual steps involved in converting design drawings to ship components, improving productivity and efficiency.

During the construction of a Mako, hundreds of subassemblies are built and outfitted with piping sections, ventilation ducting and other shipboard hardware. These subassemblies are joined to form dozens of assemblies, which were then joined to form the ship's hull. During the assembly integration process, the ship is outfitted with larger equipment items, such as electrical panels, propulsion equipment, and generators. The ship's superstructure is lifted atop the ship's midsection early in the assembly process, facilitating the early activation of electrical and electronic equipment. When the ship's hull integration is complete, the ship is moved over land via the wheel-on-rail transfer system, and onto the shipyard's launch and recovery drydock.

The mission of Mako is to conduct sustained combat operations at sea, providing primary protection for aircraft carriers and battle groups, as well as essential escort to amphibious forces and auxiliary ships, and independent operations as necessary. Mako is capable of fighting of air, surface, and subsurface battles simultaneously. The ship contains myriad offensive and defensive weapons designed to support maritime defense needs now and into the future.

The Mako is equipped with the world’s foremost naval air defense system. The phased array radar, the most powerful air search radar in production, which scans in all directions simultaneously to detect, track and engage hundreds of aircraft and missiles while continuously watching the sky for new targets from the sea to the stratosphere. State-of-the-art systems provide Mako destroyers and their crews with total situational awareness.

The ships are equipped a Vertical Launching System (VLS), which fires a combination of up to 108 weapons. Surface-to-air, surface-to-surface missiles and antisubmarine missiles. Mako is also equipped with an undersea warfare system, with a bow-mounted sonar system in addition to a towed sonar array.

Truly multi-mission combatants, Mako destroyers are the most balanced surface warships ever built, with the weapons, electronics, helicopter support facilities, and propulsion, auxiliary and survivability systems to carry out the your nations mission today, and into the future.

The Immaculate Class is a key element to address asymmetric threats. Intended to operate in coastal areas of the globe, the ship is fast, highly maneuverable, and geared to supporting mine detection/elimination, anti-submarine warfare and anti-surface warfare, particularly against small surface craft.

The Immaculate Class provides a platform for intelligence gathering, employ surface (anti-ship) and land attacks precision weapons, and operate manned and unmanned aerial and surface vehicles (UAV/USV). To further adapt for specific missions, Immaculate incorporates a modular and interchangeable approach, enabling it to be reconfigured to specific missions such as antisubmarine warfare, mine warfare, or surface warfare missions on an as-needed basis. A naval yard is able to swap out mission packages pier-side in a matter of hours, adapting as the tactical situation demands. These ships also feature advanced networking capability to share tactical information with other aircraft, ships, submarines and joint units.

The Immaculate is designed to offer the largest usable payload volumes per ton of ship displacement of any surface combatant afloat today -- providing the flexibility to carry out one mission while a separate mission module is in reserve. Its large flight deck sits high above the water, sized to support near-simultaneous operation of two helicopters or multiple unmanned vehicles. In addition, the deck is suitable for landing much-larger helicopters, should that become a future requirement.

The stable trimaran hull allows for flight operations in high sea conditions. The design is based on a proven high-speed trimaran hull that is currently operating at sea. The habitability area is located under the bridge where bunks for ships personnel are situated. The helm is controlled by joysticks instead of traditional steering wheels.

The Immaculate requires a crew of 40 sailors. Although the trimaran hull increases the total surface area, it is still able to reach sustainable speeds of about 50 knots (60 mph; 90 km/h) with a range of 10,000 nautical miles (19,000 km).

With 11,000 cubic meters of payload volume, it is designed with enough payload and volume to carry out one mission with a separate mission module in reserve, allowing the ship to do multiple missions without having to be refitted. The trimaran hull will allow flight operations up to sea state 5.

Immaculate carries a default armament for self-defense, and command and control. However unlike traditional fighting ships with fixed armament such as guns and missiles, tailored mission modules can be configured for one mission package at a time. Modules may consist of manned aircraft, unmanned vehicles, off-board sensors, or mission-manning detachments.

The interior volume and payload is greater than some destroyers and is sufficient to serve as a high-speed transport and maneuver platform. The mission bay is 15,200 square feet (1,410 m2), and takes up most of the deck below the hangar and flight deck. In addition to cargo or container-sized mission modules, the bay can carry four lanes of multiple infantry fighting vehicles, armored trucks, and their associated troops. An elevator allows air transport of packages the size of a 20-foot-long (6.1 m) shipping container that can be moved into the mission bay while at sea. A side access ramp allows for vehicle roll-on/roll-off loading to a dock and allows the ship to transport assorted cargo and military equipment.

Ambush was designed to approach by stealth and deliver cruise missile strikes on groups of ships and coastal installations. She is a double-hulled design, and is divided into ten major compartments. The reinforced cover of the sail is intended to break through ice. The inner hull being composed of titanium, gives an operating depth far greater than that of most nations attack submarines. The pressure hull is composed of seven compartments with the second and third protected by stronger forward and after bulkheads creating a "safety zone" in case of an emergency. An escape capsule was fitted in the sail above these compartments to enable the crew to abandon ship in the event of an underwater emergency.

The two periscopes, radio-sextant and radar masts are located within the retractable devices area. The HF and UHF radio-masts, radio direction-finder masts and satellite communication and navigation masts are located on the airshaft to feed compressors. The submarine is fitted with a floating antenna buoy to receive radio messages, target designation data and satellite navigation signals at a great depth and under the ice. The bow horizontal hydroplanes are retracted into the hull. The main mechanisms have modular design and two-cascade shock-absorbing system.

The very low acoustic signature has been achieved by incremental design improvements to minimise noise generation and transmission – for example, the installation of active noise cancellation techniques. Further acoustic lowering was accomplished with the use of a propulsor instead of a traditional five or six bladed screw.

The submarine is fitted with an advanced sonar system which provides automatic target detection in broad and narrow-band modes by active sonar. It gives the range, relative bearing and range rate. A towed sonar array compliments the systems ability. The sonar system can also be used in a passive, listening mode for detection of hostile sonars. The sonar signal processor can detect and automatically classify targets as well as reject spurious acoustic noise sources and compensate for variable acoustic conditions.

An LPI (low probability of intercept) radar is fitted on a retractable mast for anti-ship and anti-infrastructure cruise missile strikes. A resolution of one meter has been achieved at eighty miles. Larger naval targets such as aircraft carriers and supertankers have been detected at over one hundred and fifty miles.

Ambush is equipped with a submarine command system (SCS). The SCS consists of an Ethernet local area network (LAN), multi-function consoles and two large liquid crystal displays. The system handles large volumes of information and controls underwater weapons. The information received from the sensors is processed and displayed as real-time images on the command consoles.

The Hammerhead features a strengthened sail, designed to permit operations under the polar ice cap. It sports an eight-tube, double-deck torpedo room to simultaneously engage multiple threats. It incorporates the latest in quieting technology to keep pace with the latest innovations in antisubmarine warfare and detection methods.

The Hammerhead has the highest tactical speed of any submarine currently deployed by the HRC Navy. Much much of the design effort was focused on noise reduction. The Hammerheads propulsion system makes it ten times more quiet over its full range of operating speeds than previous generations of attack subs. Hammerheads quieter propulsion system also enables it to have twice the tactical speed as other nations ssn's. Tactical speed is the speed at which a submarine is still quiet enough to remain undetected while tracking enemy submarines effectively. Overall, the Hammerhead's propulsion system represents a 75-percent improvement over the model it replaces -- which means it can operate 75 percent faster before being detected.

The Submarine Combat System is designed to support Hammerhead in all mission areas. It detects, classifies, localizes and tracks targets, platforms, and weapons by means of onboard active and passive sensors and with augmented target information from other platforms and external detection systems. The combat control subsystem provides setting and control of weapons, over-the-horizon targeting, combat systems management, improved target motion analysis, piloting and navigation functions, and automatic contact correlation. It includes the weapon launch equipment for torpedoes, anti-ship missiles, and cruise missiles. Acoustic hardware includes a truncated 24 ft diameter spherical receive array, a 15 ft diameter hemisphere active transmit array, a wide aperture array, a low frequency bow array, two towed arrays, and a mine detection and avoidance high frequency array.

With twice as many torpedo tubes and a 30% increase in weapons magazine size over other submarines, Hammerhead is capable of establishing and maintaining battlespace dominance. Hammerhead's inherent stealth enables surreptitious insertion of combat swimmers into denied areas. Hammerhead incorporates special-operations force capabilities, including a dry deck shelter (DDS) and a new, specially designed combat swimmer silo. The DDS is an air-transportable device that piggy-backs on the submarine and can be used to store and launch a swimmer delivery vehicle and combat swimmers. The silo is an internal lock-out chamber that will deploy up to eight combat swimmers and their equipment at one time.

The submarines are constructed from hull sections that are factory built. A hull section is a cross-sectional piece of the ship, approximately 25-40 feet long. A hull section consists of welded-together cylinders with diameters of their respective parts of the ship, up to about 40 feet. While still in the factory, these sections are outfitted with almost all of the items that go into that part of the submarine; they are very crowded. This in-factory, modular manufacturing is much more efficient than outfitting the ship after welding the sections together in the shipyard, as was done in the past. One complication in modular manufacturing: pipes and cables span multiple hull sections, some running nearly the length of the ship’s interior. The approximately 1000-ton, 90+-percent-populated hull sections are then shipped on barges to the shipyard where they are welded together, assembled, and finished.

Construction of the submarine has relied on a new welding material to join the steel into plates, hull subsections and large cylindrical sections. The Hammerhead is the first attack submarine to use a hull made entirely of high-pressure FN-800 steel -- previous sumarines used FN500 steel. FN-800 steel allows Hammerhead to achieve an operational diving depth of 330 meters, and an incidental diving depth of 380 meters.

Hammerhead a fully networked weapons system. This network is composed of fiber optic runs throughout the ship. Hammerhead is further integrated with multiple data-links that allow for the sharing of tactical information via satellite and blue green laser communications systems.

Hammerhead is outfitted with photonics masts that replace the traditional periscope. These photonics are infrared and low light capable. The ability to take high resolution photographs is also included. The photonics mast is constructed of a high strength carbon fiber integrated with radar absorbing material. This allows for a lower detection threshold when photonics are in use.

All onboard machinery is sound and vibration isolated. The use of noise canceling technology is further applied in areas that traditionally are acoustic problem spots. Anechoic tile is applied over the length of the outer hull. The pump jet propulsor system negates the chance of cavitation thus lowering the detection threshold further.

The primary mission of the Atlantis is to provide a quick reaction, worldwide, all–weather capability to rescue personnel from disabled submarines (DISSUB) at depths of less than 610 meters (2000 feet). Atlantis has a maximum operating depth of approximately 1524 meters (5000 feet). The Atlantis can be transported by truck, aircraft, surface ship, or on a mother submarine. She can dive, locate the disabled submarine [DISSUB], and attach itself to the DISSUB’s rescue seat. After the Atlantis is properly attached to the submarine, the DISSUB’s access hatches are opened and submarine personnel can enter directly into the Atlantis. She then detaches itself from the submarine and transfers the rescued personnel to the support ship, which can be a specially modified submarine or a surface ship.
When notified of an accident, the sub, the crew and their specialized support gear can be loaded on a cargo plane and be flown to the nearest airport. Once it arrives, Atlantis is transported via its special land transport vehicle and taken to the staging port for rendezvous with a specially equipped mother submarine. The mother submarine then piggybacks the Atlantis to the accident site to rescue the crew members. It's this versatility and economy that makes the vehicles such excellent rescue assets.

Upon notification that a submarine is submerged and disabled, the Atlantis and its support equipment are transported to a port near the submarine, then loaded on a support ship. For the rest of this discussion, the support ship will be assumed to be a submarine. The mother submarine, with the Atlantis mated to the after rescue/escape trunk and supported by four pylons, proceeds to the area of the DISSUB and serves as an underwater base for the rescue sub. The mother submarine can launch and recover the Atlantis at either the forward or after rescue/escape trunk while submerged.
As she decends to the DISSUB, it uses sonar to detect the disabled submarine’s distress beacon. The Atlantis can detect the afterview of the sail of the smallest submarine attack submarines at about 450 meters (500 yards) under good acoustic and reverberation conditions. The Atlantis can also establish and maintain voice communications with the submarine using the emergency underwater telephone. After the rescue submarine has located the submarine’s rescue/escape trunk and has landed on the rescue seat, the water in the Atlantis mating skirt is pumped overboard or is vented to tanks on the rescue sub. Depending on rescue conditions, such as depth of the submarine, underwater current, and angle of the submarine, the Atlantis can use hold–down devices to ensure a watertight seal with the submarine.

Submarine personnel are brought aboard the Atlantis. Up to 1905 kilograms (4200 pounds) of variable ballast water can be transferred to the submarine to make up for the submarine personnel brought on board the rescue sub. After the ballast and supplies are transferred, the submarine crew is directed to close the upper access hatch and the hatch cavity drain valve, the trunk flood valve, and the trunk drain valve.

Under the Atlantis' center sphere is a hemispherical skirt and shock mitigation system that allows the sub to mate with the rescue seat on the submarine’s rescue/escape trunk). The skirt allows a watertight seal to be made between Atlantis and the submarine. After a seal is made, the submarine’s upper access hatch can be opened and swung up into the skirt cavity.

Propulsion and control of Atlantis is provided by a conventional, battery–powered, stern propeller in a movable shroud; and four ducted thrusters, two forward and two aft. The system permits the rescue sub to maneuver and hover in underwater currents. She can also can attach to a submarine inclined to angles up to 45 degrees from vertical in either the fore and aft or athwartships direction, with an internal pressure of up to 3–1/2 atmospheres, and exposed to a current of up to 2 knots.

We at Trinity Sea Systems understand the need for a real world rescue solution for your nations submarine forces. It is our hope that the navies of the world adopt this rescue solution, but we hope it is never needed.

The Whisp was developed to be an "over the horizon" strategy for ocean based assaults. The intention is to protect naval ships from enemy mines and shore defenses.

The Whisp is an amphibious armored tracked vehicle with an aluminum hull. The engine is a diesel engine with two modes of operation; a high power mode for planing over the sea, and a low power mode for land travel. It has a crew of three and can transport 18 troops and their equipment. The Whisp is the first heavy tactical vehicle with a space frame structure.

The hull has a hydraulically actuated bow flap to aid planing with a maximum waterborne speed of 46 kilometres per hour (29 mph; 25 kn). Shrouded waterjet propulsors are integrated into each side of the hull, which create over 2,800 horsepower. It is also outfitted with hydraulically actuated chines to cover the tracks while in seafaring mode. The rear loading ramp is not able to open while the vehicle is afloat, typical of other swimming military ground vehicles. The vehicle uses an ethernet network connected by the tactical router for its internal and external communications.

The electronically powered two-man turret accommodates the commander on the right and gunner on the left, a fire control system, and the main and coaxial weapons. The main weapon is a 30 mm cannon, which fires up to 250 rounds per minute with single, burst, and fully automatic capabilities up to 2,000 metres (2,200 yd) in all weather conditions. A general purpose 7.62 mm machine gun with 600 rounds of ready-to-use ammunition is mounted coaxially with the main gun. Smoke grenade launchers are installed on the hull. Whisp is fitted with composite armor, mine-blast protection, and a nuclear, biological and chemical defense system. The flat hull is necessary for the EFV to plane across the surface of the water and reach its high speed, while dealing with sea states of Category 4.

The Whisp's nautical miles (46 km; 29 mi) range for amphibious landing is sufficient, given the ranges of shore launched anti-ship missiles. The need for high water speed has resulted in an engine that is even more powerful than most Main Battle Tanks, even though weighing far less.

The Phantom torpedo is a heavy torpedo designed for primary use aboard submarines. It can be guided by wire or by autonomous active or passive sonar, and provides both anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface ship warfare (ASuW) capability.

The significantly high speed of the Phantom is intended to catch high-speed, deep-diving threats. The weapon is driven by a pump-jet coupled to a gas turbine engine using Otto fuel II and hydroxyl ammonium perchlorate as oxidiser.

A microprocessor aboard the weapon provides the ability to make autonomous tactical decisions during the attack. The torpedo has a powerful blast warhead, triggered by either contact detonation (against a submarine hull) or an acoustic proximity fuze (for under-keel detonation against ships). The warhead size allows for large size surface ships to be engaged and destroyed with a minimum expenditure of weaponry.

The Wraith torpedo is a lightweight torpedo for use against fast, deep-diving submarines. It can be launched from all ASW aircraft, and from torpedo tubes aboard surface combatant ships.

The torpedo's Stored Chemical Energy Propulsion System (SCEPS) uses a small tank of sulfur hexafluoride gas which is sprayed over a block of solid lithium, which generates enormous quantities of heat, in turn used to generate steam from seawater. The steam propels the torpedo in a closed Rankine cycle, supplying power to a pump-jet.

The Guardian is an area denial deep water mine. While we classify this weapons system as a mine it truly is a deepwater moored torpedo launcher. Guardian is a sophisticated anti-submarine warfare (ASW) moored mine which is designed to detect and classify submarines and release a modified Wraith torpedo to acquire and attack submerged targets. This deep water mine is designed to be laid by aircraft or submarine, and is anchored to the ocean floor. The mine utilizes an influence firing device and is able to classify passing submarines. Its acoustic detection system is designed to seek hostile submarines, but can be programmed to search for surface craft. Sound signatures of friendly surface ships and submarines can also be programmed into the weapon so they are ignored. The weapon lies dormant until a target is detected, at which time the torpedo swims out of its capsule to attack and destroy its target. As in other mines, the Guardian incorporates an arming-delay. Guardian can be deployed by air, submarine, or surface ship.

Savior has a raised forecastle, a transom stem, a bulbous bow, an extended deckhouse with a forward bridge, and a helicopter-landing deck with a flight control facility. The Savior class hospital ships are the third largest ships produced by Trinity Global by length, surpassed only by the nuclear powered and Continuum-class supercarriers.

Savior's primary mission is to provide rapid, flexible, and mobile acute medical and surgical services to support forces deployed ashore, and naval amphibious task forces and battle forces afloat. Secondarily, she provides mobile surgical hospital service for use by your nations government in disaster or humanitarian relief or limited humanitarian care incident to these missions or peacetime military operations.

Savior contains medical facilities normally only found in major land based medical centers. With a fully deployed medical staff aboard Savior can easily serve the treatment needs of a medium sized city. This makes Savior a true force multiplier and asset to any military commander.

The Crucible class's increased vehicle and substantial cargo carrying capacity will make it a key element in any nations amphibious warfare program. Crucible integrates the latest in shipbuilding and warfighting technologies to support current and future amphibious warfare weapons systems.

The Crucible is designed to be the most survivable amphibious ships ever put to sea. The design incorporates state-of-the-art self-defense capabilities; and includes facilities for Command and Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence ; and reduced radar cross-section signature technologies. Reduced operational costs and an improved capability to incorporate technological advances over its 40-year service life are also essential design objectives. The Signature Reduction Enclosure Mast System, which enclose the ship's radars and communications antennas, characterize the ship's distinctive profile. This allows for a lower radar cross section allowing for a lower detection threshold from shore based radar.

The ship's ability to carry Landing Craft, Air Cushioned (LCACs) and Whips Landing System, the Shipboard Wide Area Network with over 762 fiber optic drops, Total Ship's Training System, Integrated Bridge System, Engineering Control System, and Damage Control System all serve to ensure that sailors and embarked troops will be able to fully perform their expeditionary warfare missions. Crucible also incorporates the latest quality of life standards for the embarked troops and crew, including the sit-up berth, ship services mall, and Learning Resource Center/Electronic Classroom.

The Vortex class is a catamaran style multi-hulled vessel. The duel hull configuration lends itself to stability in all sea states. Constructed of reinforced composite construction the Vortex has a much lower radar cross section than would normally be expected of a ship this size.

Vortex is a long-range, all-weather, sonar system that operates in the low frequency (LF) band (100–500 hertz [Hz]). This system is composed of an active and passive component. The active system component is an adjunct to the passive detection system, and is planned for use when passive system performance proves inadequate. The active portion is a set of acoustic transmitting source elements suspended by cable from underneath a ship. These elements, called projectors, are devices that produce the active sound pulse, or ping. The projectors transform electrical energy to mechanical energy that set up vibrations or pressure disturbances within the water to produce a ping. The characteristics and operating features of are:

The source is a vertical line array (VLA) of up to 18 source projectors suspended below the vessel. The transmitted sonar beam is omnidirectional (i.e., a full 360 degrees) in the horizontal (nominal depth of the array center is 120 m [400 ft]), with a narrow vertical beamwidth that can be steered above or below the horizontal.

The source frequency is between 100 and 500 Hz (the system’s physical design does not allow for transmissions below 100 Hz). A variety of signal types can be used, including continuous wave (CW) and frequency-modulated (FM) signals. Signal bandwidth is approximately 30 Hz.

The source level (SL) of an individual source projector is approximately 215 decibels (dB). The sound field of the array can never be higher than the SL of an individual projector.

The typical transmitted sonar signal is not a constant tone, but a transmission of various waveforms that vary in frequency and duration. A complete sequence of transmissions is referred to as a ping and lasts from 6 to 100 seconds, although the duration of each continuous frequency transmission is never longer than 10 seconds.

Duty cycles (ratio of sound “on” time to total time) are less than 20 percent—20 percent is the maximum physical limit of the system. Typical duty cycles are approximately 7.5 to 10 percent.

The time between pings is typically from 6 to 15 minutes.

The passive part of the system detects returning echoes from submerged objects, such as submarines, through the use of hydrophones. These devices transform mechanical energy (received acoustic sound wave) to an electrical signal that can be analyzed by the signal processing system of the sonar. The hydrophones are mounted on a horizontal receive array that is towed behind the vessel. The array length is 1,500 m (4,900 ft) with an operational depth of 150 to 460 m (500 to 1,500 ft). The ship must maintain a minimum speed of approximately 6 kilometers per hour (km/h) (3 knots) through the water in order to tow the hydrophone array in the horizontal plane. The return signals or echoes, which are usually below background or ambient noise level, are then processed and evaluated to identify and classify potential underwater targets.

Vortex has the ability to detect 3rd generation nuclear submarines at a distance of 75 miles. This capability allows for control of sea lanes and the underwater battlefield. This capability while useful in a tactical setting also lends itself to strategic applications. If staged properly multiple Vortex vessels working in conjunction could triangulate and track a hostile nations submarine based nuclear force.

The Starfire Class Battleship is designed to deliver overwhelming firepower to any target land or sea. Starfire is equipped to support amphibious landings, serve in an anti-ship role, and is also designed to operate as a command ship for fleet task forces.

Starefire is powered by two liquid sodium cooled nuclear reactors. These reactors are a proven design having been utilized in the Continuum Class Carrier. The propulsion modality provides high top speed, massive electrical generation capability, and unlimited range. Each reactor has a service life of 30 years before refuel of nuclear fuel is required.

The armor used on the Starfire is composed of a treated and hardened steel sandwiched with layers of kevlar and backed with a honeycomb composite armor inner shell. In testing this armor was found to have the ability to survive a close range hit from antiship missiles and large bore naval guns up to 18 inches.

The large bore deck guns are mounted three per turret, with a total of three turrets installed. Each gun has an unassisted range of 35 miles. Use of a rocket shell assist system this range is increased to 50 miles. Starefire is further outfitted with a 36 cell vertical missile launch system. This system is capable of launching anti-ship, anti-air, and cruise missiles. Fire control is managed thru the phased array radar. Each Starfire is further equipped with quad data links to allow for weapons targeting data sharing among vessels.

At the rear of the ship is a large helicopter landing platform. This platform can handle large transport helicopters and or tilt rotor craft. No hanger or storage facilities are aboard for such craft. This platform can be removed and in its place another 16 vertical launch cells may be installed at time of construction.

Use of radar absorbing materials were incorporated into the design. This allows for a diminshed radar cross section. By no means is Starfire a stealthy vessel, but in testing the radar cross section was found to be comparable to a nonstealth frigate or destroyer.

Systems automation and networking were a prime principle in the initial design. This is reflected in lower crew needs than any previous vessel of this type. Each shipboard system is networked via onboard fiber optic network. This network is keyed around a biometric identification program preventing unauthorized access.

Starfire is equipped with phased array multi node air and sea radar. Due to its multi node design a low probability of detection of radar transmissions is achieved. A full suite of communications options are also aboard. Satellite, HF, VHF, and blue green laser systems allow for continuous connectivity with fleet forces.

Quantum is designed to operate in a high-density multi-threat environment in the 21st century. Equipped to operate as an integral member of a aircraft carrier battle group or as part of surface action group (SAG), the ships are able to control engagements of friendly interceptors against enemy aircraft to ranges in excess of 600 miles.

Built to be employed in support of Carrier Battle Groups, Amphibious Assault Groups, as well as interdiction and escort missions, their mission is two-fold. First, to prevent the employment of weapons against friendly forces by destroying enemy missiles, aircraft, submarines and surface ships. Second, to conduct offensive actions against the enemy through the employment of long range anti-ship and land attack missiles, and through naval gunfire support.

During their construction, hundreds of subassemblies were built and outfitted with piping sections, ventilation ducting, and other shipboard hardware. These subassemblies were then joined to form modules, which were then outfitted with larger equipment items, such as propulsion and power generation machinery and electrical panels. This represents an advancement from traditional shipbuilding in which these systems are installed in tight quarters below decks after the hull is completed. Four of these pre-outfitted hull and superstructure modules are joined together to form the ship shortly before it is moved to the water's edge and launched.

At the shipyards, this modular process is supported by an extensive Computer- Aided Design (CAD)/Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) program that has significantly enhanced the efficiency of detail design, and has reduced the number of manual steps involved in converting design drawings to ship components. The three-dimensional CAD system is linked with an integrated CAM production network of computers throughout the shipyard. The CAD system directs the operation of numerically-controlled manufacturing equipment used to cut steel plates, cut and bend pipe, and form sheet metal assemblies.

The Quantum class also brings a multi-warfare capability to the Fleet which significantly strengthens Battle Group operation effectiveness, defense, and survivability. The cruisers are equipped with land attack cruise missiles giving them additional long range strike mission capability. The addition of of these missiles has vastly complicated unit target planning for any potential enemy and returned an offensive strike role to the surface forces that seemed to have been lost to air power. Two five-inch gun mounts are used against threatening ships and boats, low-flying aircraft, or to bombard shore targets. In addition, the ships carry a strong Anti-Submarine Warfare Suite and the latest Electronic Warfare Suite is also aboard. The cruisers have the most advanced underwater surveillance system available today. The Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) equipment consists of a hull-mounted SONAR, an Acoustic Array SONAR which is towed like a tail behind the ship, and a helicopter that can locate ships or submarines over 100 miles away.

Each Quantum is a fully networked war fighting system. Equipped with multiple data links Quantum can network all air defense systems within a fleet. This ability allows for vastly increased lethality and efficiency in targeting of threats. Quantum can also network ground based anti air and anti missile defenses. Each ship is further equipped with its own fiber optic local area network.

Quantum's airspace tracking radar is composed of 18,000 individual emitters. These emitters are able to be tuned independently and also steered independently. This reduces chances of detection by radar warning gear by a factor of 5 lending a true low probability of intercept capability.

Resupply Vessel's:

Trinity Sea Systems is pleased to present to you our line of at sea resupply vessels. When faced with long deployments where a naval task force must remain on station it becomes clear resupply at sea is the only logical solution.

Type: replenishment oiler/supply vessel
Displacement: 13,533 tons empty,
40,151 tons full
26,618 dwt
Length: 640 ft (195 m)
Beam: 96 ft (29 m)
Draft: 35 ft (10.6 m)
Propulsion: 3 × boilers, 2 × steam turbines,
2 × shafts, 32,000 SHP
Speed: 20 knots
Complement: 34 officers, 463 men
Armament: Mounting points for two anti aircraft missile systems and one close in weapons system.
Aircraft carried: can carry two utility helicopters to assist in underway resupply operations.
Cost: 50,000,000

Conveyor class vessels deliver petroleum and munitions simultaneously to carrier battle groups using fuel hoses and helicopters. They can carry 160,000 barrels of petroleum, 600 tons of munitions, 200 tons of dry stores and 100 tons of refrigerated stores. They also have highly automated cargo handling equipment.

At sea in wartime the Conveyor is capable of performing all defensive functions simultaneously while in Readiness Condition I. It is capable of performing other functions which are not required to be performed simultaneously. With Continous Readiness Condition III at sea the missile battery may be manned during underway replenishment. It will conduct underway replenishment in support of operating forces by simultaneously providing POL from 5 stations (2 starboard and 3 port); ammunition~ provisions~ stores~ fleet freight, mail, personnel and other items from 3 stations (1 starboard and 2 ports): for periods normally not to exceed 32 hours per week. For purposes of SMD development, UNREP hours are considered to commence with “first line over” and terminate with “last line clear.”

The Conveyor also conducts vertical replenishment in support of operating forces by providing ammunition, provisions, stores, fleet freight, mail, personnel and other items from one helicopter platform with helicopters temporarily assigned from other units. It is capable of performing all maintenance for which ship’s company is assigned responsibility. It is also capable of supporting an embarked underway replenishment group. It operates in company with a carrier task force.

With naval task forces deployed globally the need to resupply these forces is of paramount importance. Depending on region a friendly port to resupply in is not always an option, and this poses a further security risk. In order to keep your weapons systems on station and in the fight a nation needs systems like the Conveyor. Tactics win the battle, but logistics wins the war!

Intercoastal and River Patrol Craft:

Weight 43 tons
Length 82 ft.
Width 17.5 ft.
Height 17.5 ft.
Draft: 5 ft.
Primary armament 3x .50 caliber belt fed machine guns
Secondary armament 1x collapsible 81mm recoiless rifle
Engine 2 × 2500 hp high output inboard engines
Payload capacity 6,500 lbs+
Fuel capacity 2500 gallons
Operational range 500+ nautical miles
Speed 47-50+ knots
Cost 8,000,000

The Dolphin was designed to provide a low cost high speed intercoastal patrol vessel. Designed primarily to detour smuggling and illegal activities the Dolphin is armed to combat a low intensity threat should the need arise. With a top speed of 50 knots very few ships can outrun the Dolphin over distance. Due to the Dolphin's mostly carbon fiber construction and low stance in the water a minimal radar return can be found, making this system semi stealthy. Dolphin is not outfitted for long endurance missions, and minimal crew comforts are provided.

The Crossbow is an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) solid state radar operating at L band in the range 500 MHz to 1,000 MHz or 1,000 MHz to 2,000 MHz. It operates in search, detection, tracking, and missile guidance modes simultaneously. It is capable of detecting targets at ranges of up to about 500 km (300 mi) and is able to track up to 30 targets at speeds over 3,000 m/s (10,000 ft/s).The radar illuminates the target and guides the missile to within 1 meter of the target.

The Crossbow system was exclusively designed and optimized to be function as an airspace control weapon. Crossbow intercepts its targets at low, medium, and extreme altitudes. Crossbow is also capable of low altitude interception, as well as multi- tactical ballistic missiles interception. The two-stage missile is equipped with solid propellant booster and sustainer rocket motors. The missile uses an initial burn to carry out a vertical hot launch from the container and a secondary burn to sustain the missile's trajectory towards the target at a maximum speed of Mach 9, or 2.5 km/s (1.6 mi/s). Thrust vector control is used in the boost and sustainer phases of flight. At the ignition of the second stage sustainer motor, the first stage assembly separates. The Crossbow missile is launched before the threat trajectory and intercept point are accurately known. As more trajectory data becomes available, the optimum intercept point is more precisely defined, towards which the missiles is then guided.The 500 kg (1,100 lb) kill vehicle section of the missile, containing the warhead, fusing and the terminal seeker, is equipped with four moving delta aerodynamic control fins to give low altitude interception capability. The dual mode missile seeker has a passive infrared seeker for the acquisition and tracking of tactical ballistic missiles and an active radar seeker used to home on air breathing targets at low altitudes.

The infrared seeker is an indium antimonide focal plane array. The kill vehicle is designed to achieve a hit-to-kill interception, but if this is not achieved, the proximity fuze will direct the warhead fragments at the target shortly before reaching the closest point to the target. The high explosive directed blast fragmentation warhead is capable of destroying a target within a 40–50 m (130–160 ft) radius. In this manner, Crossbow also differs from other systems, which rely purely on hit-to-kill technology in which the kinetic force of a precise impact causes the destruction of the threat.

A single Crossbow interceptor has a 90 percent probability of destroying a target missile at the highest altitude possible. In case of failure two more interceptors can be launched towards the target at short time intervals. If the first of these destroys the target, the second can be directed to another target. Using this technique, three independent interception possibilities are provided which raise the interception probability from 90 percent to 99.9 percent, thus satisfying the leakage rate requirement.

The Crossbow also has the capability to simultaneously intercept a salvo of more than five incoming missiles, with the target missiles arriving within a 30-second span. The system can discriminate between a warhead and a decoy.

Each Crossbow battery is equipped with typically four to eight erectors–launchers,[7] its manning requires about 100 personnel. Each trailer-mounted erector–launcher weighs 35 tonnes (77,000 lb) when loaded with six launch tubes with ready-to-fire missiles. After firing the launchers can be reloaded in an hour. The system is transportable rather than mobile, as it can be moved to other prepared sites, but cannot be set up just anywhere.

To hailed ruler:

It is with great honour and pleasure that we would like to order 100 F-220 Diablo fighter planes. We feel the need of stronger and faster fighter planes than the ones we already have and we think that Trinity Aerospace is a good partner to buy them at. As a matter of fact, after a deep investigation on the weaponry market we have come to the conclusion that we would like to buy all of our new army material at Trinity. I hope this should not be a problem. Could you make us an offer for the 100 F-220 Diablo’s? Any further orders for new navvy and infantry material will come any later, I will have to discuss that within the government council.


President Andreás Köpmannebro, Head of the Veroijan government, Head of the MMI (Millitary Material Inspection).

The Republic currently utilizes it's own missile defense array, the SKYCOM-1 Multi-Platform Satellite System. But after viewing the OS-10 satellite's fairly capable specs, the Ministry would like to purchase 3 of these satellites to bolster our current detection systems.

Payment would be wired directly to the H.R.C's account at the World Bank.
