Rampant Phoenix-Class Orbiter

design by Roderick Darroch Elliott

Built by AgnaashKa Li, another aerospace manufacturer, the Rampant Pheonix is a typical tri-mode (turbojet/ramjet/rocket) AZHRAE spaceplane of a configuration found across the Imperium at similar tech levels. However, its payload and passenger capacity is somewhat lower than the norm due to Maaliikaa's dense atmosphere and high gravity. These factors also force an inflight refuelling prior to switching into ramjet mode.

The vehicle was designed with Fire Fusion & Steel.
