Golem-B Attack Plane

design by Stan Bundy


This is a TL 9 variant of the Golem, with upgraded systems and an HBT replacing the fuel cells. This version is be a joint venture between the Luhtalan manufacturer and a minor Oriflamme aircraft manufacturer seeking to expand its operations. The latter was not originally enthused with the prospect of a business venture with the Luhtalans, until its owner got a chance to fly one of the standard Golems, and was so impressed with the design that the usual Centrist/Federalist rivalries took a back seat to the desire to build such a well- rounded design.
