Freeborn Solar Command Skimmer

Solar Command Skimmer

Combat Level: Strategic

Where: Chryseis Shard, p.66

The Solar Skimmer is a reconstructed Concord Transporter Drone designed to carry a human crew and configured for alternative manual operation. In practice it is a drone vehicle with crew override capabilities,  designed to act as a mobile vehicle headquarters.

As with practically all Freeborn equipment there is little standardisation. The Solar Skimmer can be found in unarmed variants, although most are provided with a crew operated light support weapon. One of the most common types adds multiple firing mag launchers in a rack on either side of the crew compartment, giving the vehicle a further role as a mobile support weapon under the direct control of the commander.

In action

Based on the T7 type transporter drone, this is a MOD2  command vehicle. Armed with a mag light support or plasma light support for an infantry support role (or for use against Ghar!), the vehicle can also be fitted with a mag launcher rack, effectively multiple X-Launchers in one. If need be, it can even launch special munitions to act as a mobile, longer-range fire platform. Equipped with a spotter, for defense, it can also be accompanied by a batter drone and shield drones.
