Machine Gun configuration

 

Caliber - 5.56x45mm

Action - Gas Operated--Rotating Bolt

Overall length - 1022 mm

Barrel length - 508 mm

Weight, empty - 3.72 kg

Rate of Fire - 750 rounds per minute

Magazine capacity - 30 rounds

 

The Stoner M63 is more than just a single firearm; it is a modular kit, which contains about 15 sub-assemblies. Different combinations of those sub-assemblies (barrels, feed units, trigger units, sight units) allow the assembly of various firearms on the single receiver unit. The stamped steel receiver contains an universal bolt group, with a multi-lug rotating bolt and a long stroke gas piston with gas tube. The receiver also has several sets of mounting points for attachment of all other sub-assemblies and the quick-detachable barrel. In rifle and carbine configuration, the receiver is so orientated that the gas system lies above the barrel and the feed unit mounting points are below the receiver. In all machine gun configurations, either belt or magazine fed, the receiver is turned ?upside down?, with the gas system being below the barrel, and the feed unit being above the receiver. In rifle / carbine configuration the Stoner 63 system utilizes a hammer-fired trigger unit, integral with the pistol grip and triggerguard. This trigger unit allows for single shots and full auto fire, and the gun is fired from a closed bolt only. In machine gun configuration, the trigger unit has no hammer; instead, its sear interoperates with the cut in the gas piston rod, allowing only full automatic fire, and only from an open bolt. The magazine feed unit can accommodate proprietary curved box magazines for 30 rounds, and can be used both in rifle and machine gun configurations. The belt feed unit could be used only in machine gun configurations. Different rear sight units were available for various configurations, with the front sights being mounted on quick detachable barrels.

Caliber - 5.56x45mm

Action - Gas operated, rotating bolt

Overall length - 805 mm

Barrel length - 508 mm

Weight, unloaded - 3.82 kg

Magazine capacity - 30 rounds

Rate of fire - 450-650 rounds per minute

Effective range - about 500 meters

 

The R-21 represents some kind of mainstream in the turn-of-the-centuries small arms technology. It is of bullpup layout, and utilizes the most conventional gas operated, rotating bolt locked action, with detachable box magazine feeding, and uses optical sighting as it's primary aiming technique. This weapon has been designed specifically for special forces and guerrilla forces. It's durable, reliable and an all-around great weapon, even in the most difficult of circumstances.

 

P14/45APC Para-Ordinance

Type: Single Action

Chamber: .45ACP, also available in .40SW

Weight: ca. 1100 g

Length: 216 mm

Barrel length: 127 mm

Capacity: 45ACP: 14 rounds

 

Para-Ordnance manufactures one of the most famous M1911 high-capacity clones.

Like all 1911-alikes, P14/45 is a blowback-operated, locked breech design with Browning linked slide/barrel interlocking system.

Distinguished for high reliability and match class accuracy, Para Ordnance pistols are widely used in IPSC competitions.

 

MP404

user posted image

 

Caliber - 9x19mm Luger/Para

Weight - 3.17 kg empty

Length (stock closed/open) - 530 / 800 mm

Barrel length - 200 mm

Rate of fire - 500 - 550 rounds per minute

Magazine capacity - 32 rounds

Effective range - 100 meters

 

Oddly, The Confederate Army hasn't updated it's submachine gun for the last 50 years. However, the need to do so hasn't arisen. The MP404 was largely based off the MP38/40 design used by the Germans in WWII. The MP404 is quite accurate thanks to the 9x19mm pistol round, the length of the barrel and the lowered rate of fire. It's design is simple, which makes repairs and maintainance easy and reduces the chance for a jam in the middle of a conflict. Due to the age of the weapon, it's considerably cheaper than other submachine guns in the region.

Unit Cost - $8.1 million

Crew - Six (pilot, co-pilot, two loadmasters, and two flight engineers).

 

The CN-141 Starlifter is the workhorse of the Air Mobility Command. The Starlifter fulfills the vast spectrum of airlift requirements through its ability to airlift combat forces over long distances, inject those forces and their equipment either by airland or airdrop, re-supply employed forces, and extract the sick and wounded from the hostile area to advanced medical facilities.

 

A universal air refueling receptacle on the CN-141 transfers 23,592 gallons (89,649.6 liters) of fuel in about 26 minutes, allowing longer non-stop flights and fewer fuel stops during worldwide airlift missions. The CN-141 force, nearing seven million flying hours, has a proven reliability and long-range capability.

 

The Starlifter can airlift combat forces, equipment and supplies, and deliver them on the ground or by airdrop, using paratroop doors on each side and a rear loading ramp. It can be used for low-altitude delivery of paratroops and equipment, and high-altitude delivery of paratroops. It can also airdrop equipment and supplies using the container delivery system. It is the first aircraft designed to be compatible with the 463L Material Handling System, which permits off-loading 68,000 pounds (30,600 kilograms) of cargo, refueling and reloading a full load, all in less than an hour.

 

The CN-141 has an all-weather landing system, pressurized cabin and crew station. Its cargo compartment can easily be modified to perform around 30 different missions. About 200 troops or 155 fully equipped paratroops can sit in canvas side-facing seats, or 166 troops in rear-facing airline seats. Rollers in the aircraft floor allow quick and easy cargo pallet loading. A palletized lavatory and galley can be installed quickly to accommodate passengers, and when palletized cargo is not being carried, the rollers can be turned over to leave a smooth, flat surface for loading vehicles.

 

In its aeromedical evacuation role, the Starlifter can carry about 103 litter patients, 113 ambulatory patients or a combination of the two. It provides rapid transfer of the sick and wounded from remote areas overseas to hospitals in the Confederation.

 

NSA (New Strategic Aircraft)

user posted image

 

The current CAF "Air Mobility Master Plan" calls for the retirement of the CN-141 transport by the year 2012 and retirement of the KC-135 tankers to begin in 2020. These 700+ aircraft, 80% of the current mobility fleet, are now 25 to 30 years old and are experiencing fatigue and corrosion problems leading to low availability rates. The CN-141 represents 35% of the current Confederate strategic airlift capability while the KC-135 comprises 90% of the tanker fleet. Lockhead Marvin Aeronautical Systems (LMAS) is studying a new family of mid-size jet transport aircraft, called the New Strategic Aircraft (NSA), to meet Confederate international, and commercial requirements for:

 

Military strategic airlift,

Military air refueling,

Military personnel and equipment airdrop,

Commercial cargo and package delivery,

 

A commercially viable, military capable CRAF aircraft. The goal of the NSA program is to develop the standard long range mobility aircraft for the first half of the 21st century. The basic NSA airframe will be a commercially certified aircraft with provisions for modular components and systems to allow the aircraft to evolve to meet changing requirements and missions.

 

The aircraft will be able to perform airlift and tanker missions through the use of integrated modular tanker systems. This will allow the use of one airframe, with the resulting logistics and operational advantages, to fulfill airlift, airdrop, and air refueling missions. In the airlift role, the NSA can carry all the equipment of the Army's light divisions over a 4,000 NM range. The aircraft can airdrop over 150 paratroops or two 60,000 pound airdrop loads. For tanker missions, the aircraft can exceed the fuel offload of the KC-135 while retaining its basic airlift capability.

 

Contract Price: 750 million Dollars

Benefits of the contract: Purchasing a contract will go to fund further research for the NSA program. Once the system research is complete funds will be diverted to production and testing the new craft, once they have been proven reliable, nations who have purchased a contract will be given an 85% discount on the purchase of any NSA aircraft and may even be given production and commerce rights for the aircraft.

Specifications

Primary Function: Air-to-surface anti-ship missile

Mission: Maritime ship attack

Targets: Maritime surface

Service: Navy and Air Force

Power Plant: Teledyne Turbojet and solid propellant booster for surface and submarine launch

Thrust: 660 pounds

Length: 15 feet (4.55 meters)

Weight: 1,470 pounds (661.5 kilograms)

Diameter: 13.5 inches (34.29 centimeters)

Wingspan: 3 feet (91.44 centimeters)

Range: Greater than 60 nautical miles

Speed: 855 km/h

Guidance System: Sea-skimming cruise with mid-course guidance monitored by radar altimeter, active seeker radar terminal homing

Warheads: Penetration high-explosive blast (488 pounds)

Explosive: Destex

Fuze: Contact

Unit Cost: $800,000

 

The AGM-88 missile provides the Navy and the Air Force with a common missile for air, ship, and submarine launches. The weapon system uses mid-course guidance with a radar seeker to attack surface ships. Its low-level, sea-skimming cruise trajectory, active radar guidance and warhead design assure high survivability and effectiveness. The AGM-88 missile and its launch control equipment provide the warfighter capability to interdict ships at ranges well beyond those of other aircraft.

 

The AGM-88 missile was designed to sink warships in an open-ocean environment. Other weapons can be used against ships, but AGM-88 and AGM-12 are the only missiles used by the Confederation military with anti-ship warfare as the primary mission. Once targeting information is obtained and sent to the AGM-88 missile, it is fired. Once fired, the missile flys to the target location, turns on its seeker, locates the target and strikes it without further action from the firing platform. This allows the firing platform to engage other threats instead of concentrating on one at a time.

 

An appropriately configured AGM-88 can be launched from an AERO-65 bomb rack, AERO-7/A bomb rack, MK 6 canister, MK 7 shock resistant canister, MK 12 thickwall canister, MK 112 ASROC launcher, MK 8 and MK 116 TARTAR launcher, or submarine torpedo tube launcher.

 

Submarines fire a capsule containing the AGM-88 from their torpedo tubes. When the capsule breaches the surface, the top is blown off and the missile is launched. Aircraft launched Harpoons do not require a Booster. Depending upon launch conditions, the AGM-88 engine generally will not start until after the missile is dropped from the wing. This allows firing from higher altitudes and longer range flights

Unit Cost: $1.4 million

 

BMG-112 is an all-weather submarine or ship-launched land-attack cruise missile. After launch, a solid propellant propels the missile until a small turbofan engine takes over for the cruise portion of flight. BGM-112 is a highly survivable weapon. Radar detection is difficult because of the missile's small cross-section, low altitude flight. Similarly, infrared detection is difficult because the turbofan engine emits little heat. Systems include Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver; an upgrade of the optical Digital Scene Matching Area Correlation (DSMAC) system; Time of Arrival (TOA) control, and improved 402 turbo engines.

The BMG-112 land-attack cruise missile has been used to attack a variety of fixed targets, including air defense and communications sites, often in high-threat environments. The land attack version of BGM-112has inertial and terrain contour matching (TERCOM) radar guidance. The TERCOM radar uses a stored map reference to compare with the actual terrain to determine the missile's position. If necessary, a course correction is then made to place the missile on course to the target. Terminal guidance in the target area is provided by the optical Digital Scene Matching Area Correlation (DSMAC) system, which compares a stored image of target with the actual target image.

 

The BMG-112 missile provides a long-range, highly survivable, unmanned land attack weapon system capable of pinpoint accuracy. The Surface Navy's deep strike capability resides in the BMG-112 missile system - the proven weapon of choice for contingency missions.

Advanced Ground Warrior Systems

 

The Advanced Ground Warrior System integrates small arms with high-tech equipment enabling ground forces to deploy, fight and win on the battlefields of the 21st century. AGWS came about in 1991 when an Army study group recommended the service look at the soldier as a complete weapon system. The first priority in AGWS is lethality. The second is survivability and the third, command and control.

 

Based on recent advances in communications, sensors, and materials, the AGWS integrates commercial, off-the-shelf technologies into a complete soldier system. For the first time, the soldier's equipment is being designed as if he is an individual, complete weapons platform. Each subsystem and component is designed to and for the soldier. The result: the first integrated soldier fighting system for the dismounted infantryman.

 

AGWS has several subsystems: the weapon, integrated helmet assembly, protective clothing and individual equipment, computer/radio, and software.

 

The Weapon Subsystem is built around the M-63 modular carbine. The weapon subsystem includes key electrical optical components such as the TWS, video camera, and the laser rangefinder/digital compass (LRF/DC). The LRF/DC provides the soldier with range and direction information. When coupled with his individual location from GPS, the soldier has accurate target location when calling for indirect fire and combat identification. This system will allow infantrymen to operate in all types of weather and at night. In conjunction with other components, a soldier can even shoot around corners without exposing himself to enemy fire.

 

The Integrated Helmet Assembly Subsystem (IHAS) uses advanced materials to provide ballistic protection at less weight than the current helmet shell. The integrated helmet assembly is lighter and more comfortable than today's helmet. The IHAS's helmet mounted computer and sensor display is the soldier's interface to the other subsystems and to the digital battlefield. Through the helmet mounted display, the soldier can view computer-generated graphical data, digital maps, intelligence information, troop locations and imagery from his weapon-mounted Thermal Weapon Sight (TWS) and video camera. This new capability allows the soldier to view around a corner, acquire a target, then fire the weapon without exposing himself, beyond his arms and hands, to the enemy. By scanning an area with his weapon's thermal sight, the soldier will be able to see an area's characteristics, including terrain and enemy positions, and will be able to see through obscurants. The thermal images will appear on a miniature helmet-mounted display. The Night Sensor Display will integrate a helmet mounted display with an image intensifier for access to his computer sensors as cited above. This will allow the soldier to maneuver and engage targets under cover of darkness.

 

The Protective Clothing and Individual Equipment Subsystem consists of a revolutionary backpack frame design based on state-of-the-art automotive racing technology which bends with the soldier's natural body movements. The cables are integrated into the frame as necessary for the soldier's computer/radio connections. The soldier can adjust his backpack frame to adjust the load distribution from his shoulders to his hips while on the move. A simple adjustment, yet it allows the soldier to manage and carry his combat load more effectively and with less fatigue. The new LW body armor, like the helmet, provides improved ballistic protection at a reduced weight. The Land Warrior body armor includes a modular upgrade plate to protect the soldier against the small arms threat. The protective clothing and individual equipment subsystem incorporates modular body armor and upgrade plates that can stop small-arms rounds fired point-blank.

 

The infantryman will attach the Computer/Radio Subsystem (CRS) to his load-bearing frame. Over this goes the rucksack for personal gear. The computer processor is fused with radios and a Global Positioning System locator. A hand grip wired to the pack and attached to the soldier's chest acts as a computer mouse and also allows the wearer to change screens, key on the radio, change frequencies and send digital information. The subsystem comes in two flavors: The leader version has two radios and a flat panel display/keyboard, and soldiers have one radio. With the equipment, leaders and soldiers can exchange information. Soldiers using their weapon-mounted camera, for example, can send videos to their leaders. In its GEN II version, the computer and radio will be combined and embedded in new web gear. The system will be built around a series of cards the size of credit cards, but slightly thicker.

 

The CRS is integrated into the backpack frame in two sections. The upper portion contains two radios the squad radio and the soldier radio). The squad radio is based on a repackaged commercial radio and will be fully compatible with SINCGARS SIP. The soldier radio is based on a repackaged handheld commercial radio made by Motorola. This gives the soldier the ability to communicate with others in his squad, greatly improving situation awareness and survivability through increased command and control.

 

The lower portion of the backpack contains the computer and the global positioning system (GPS) modules. Integration of the GPS and radio into the CRS eliminates separate displays, controls and cases, thereby saving weight and reducing power requirements. Menu driven displays are controlled by the soldier from his Remote Input Pointing Device. This device is located on the chest strap and is operated by the touch of a finger. Some functions are controlled with two buttons located near his trigger finger, allowing the soldier to maintain a firing position. Imbedded into the load carrying frame are the antennas for the GPS and soldier radio. The open architecture of the CRS allows direct insertion of future upgrades in both hardware and software.

 

The AGWS software subsystem addresses the soldier's core battlefield functions, display management, and mission equipment and supply. The software subsystem includes tactical and mission support modules, maps and tactical overlays, and the ability to capture and display video images. The system also contains a power management module. Land Warrior will be interoperable on the digital battlefield. Designers set up the system so it can be updated as technology improves. The modular architecture allows for direct insertion/replacement with technology upgrades. The software subsystem allows the soldier to tailor the display, menus and functional operation of his system to his own mission needs and preferences.

WarHound-90

user posted image

 

The WarHound-90 provides the Army an all-weather, indirect, area fire weapon system to strike counterfire, air defense, armored formations, and other high-payoff targets at all depths of the tactical battlefield. Primary missions of MLRS include the suppression, neutralization and destruction of threat fire support and forward area air defense targets.

 

The WarHound is a versatile weapon system that supplements traditional cannon artillery fires by delivering large volumes of firepower in a short time against critical, time-sensitive targets. These targets often include enemy artillery, air defense systems, mechanized units, and personnel. WarHound units can use their system's "shoot and scoot" capability to survive while providing fire support for attacking manuever elements. WarHound is not intended to replace cannon artillery, but has been designed to complement it.

 

Battle ready WarHounds ready for inspection.

user posted image

 

The WarHound incorporates some of the most modern improvements from the older WarSprite MRLS:

 

The Improved Fire Control System (IFCS) replaces obsolete, maintenance-intensive hardware and software, providing growth potential for future munitions and the potential for reduced launcher operation and support costs. A Global Positioning System-aided navigation system for the launcher is being developed as part of IFCS to supplement the existing inertial position-navigation system.

 

The Improved Launcher Mechanical System (ILMS) is designed to decrease the time required to aim and load the launcher. This is achieved by providing a faster launcher drive system that moves simultaneously in azimuth and elevation. ILMS is expected to reduce the traverse time from the stowed position to worst case aimpoint by approximately 80 percent. It will also decrease the mechanical system contribution to reload time by about 40 percent. The reduction in time spent at the launch and reload points is intended to increase survivability.

 

Crew: 3 man

Missile Diameter: 122mm

Missile Length: 1.8 m

Missile Weight: 66.8 kilograms (147.3 pounds)

Missile Range: 28 km

Warhead: HE or enhanced fragmentation

Unit Price: $1 million

 

 

Dwarfer-83

The Dwarfer-83 is an aging MRLS system formerly used by the Army. These units are still very effective when deployed, however their aging model and immodular design has caused the Army to redesign the MRLS concept. It fires 27 233mm rockets from the rear of the chasis, and uses GPS to track and intercept targets upto 32km away.

 

These units are no longer in use by Confederation Military branches and are all for sale.

Millenium Gun

user posted image

 

The Millennium Gun is a low-cost, unmanned, remotely controlled gun mount. It is compatible with all modern and legacy sensors and fire control systems. It fits on a number of ship classes. The Millennium Gun will give navies a multimission-capable deck gun, defending against sea-skimming cruise missiles and other air threats in the open ocean and against the asymmetric threat of small surface craft in littoral and riverine waters.

 

It fires 35 mm shells at a rate of 1000 per mintue. The shells fall apart in the air, creating a 'wall of lead'. The gun's kill radius varies according to the type of threat it engages. Testing has shown it to be lethal against aircraft and helicopters at 3.5 km, against cruise missiles at 2 km, and against anti-ship sea-skimming missiles at 1.5 km. These distances extend the close-in defensive perimeter and the time available for a ship to engage and destroy an imminent threat.

 

Millenium Guns will be tested in the up-coming wargames with Suverina.

SMAW (Shoulder-launched Multipurpose Assault Weapon)

user posted image

SMAW launcher in ready to fire configuration, with HEDP rocket in canister attached to the launcher

 

SMAW is a shoulder-fired, reusable rocket launcher that consists of a launch tube made of epoxy and fiberglass, with attached firing unit, 9mm spotting rifle, and sight bracket. Firing unit has dual grips, manual safety, and fire selector that allows to fire either a spotting rifle or a loaded rocket. Spotting rifle is is ballistically matched to all rockets. It is loaded with special ammunition and fires from special 6-round magazines. Spare magazines are clipped to each rocket container. Once operator roughly aimed the unit, using either telescope or night sight, or backup open sight, he starts to fire spotting rifle until rounds are hitting the intended target. 9mm bullets provide a visible trace up to 500m range, so operator can check his aim, and once on target, he then switches to rocket and launches it. SMAW launcher can be fired from the shoulder, using dual grips and shoulder rest, or from the ground, using folding bipods located near the center of mass, next to the shoulder rest.

 

All types of rockets are supplied in disposable, sealed plastic containers, which are clipped to the rear part of the launcher. Once rocket is fired, empty container is detached from the launcher and discarded. Rockets have caliber of 83mm, and are stabilized in flight using spring-open switchblade-type stabilizations. Standard types of rockets are: Mk.3 HEDP (High Explosive Dual Purpose) weighting 4.35kg (5.9kg in container), Mk.6 HEAA (High Explosive Anti Armor) weighting 4.4kg (6.2kg in container), CPR (Common Practice - training), FTG (Follow-Through Grenade with dual warhead - first that penetrates barrier, and second that follows through the hole and explodes inside) weighting 5.2kg (7.1kg in container), and CS (Confined Space with HEDP warhead - creates no backblast and an be fired from confined spaces such as rooms in building) weighting 6.9kg (9.1kg in container). The most recent (2003) addition to the range of SMAW rounds is Mk.80 rocket, known as NE (Novel Explosive, basically a thermobaric HEDP warhead).

The MG-67is a gas operated, belt feed weapon that fires from open bolt and has breech block swinging sideways to lock into the receiver wall. It had quick changeable barrel with external longitudal flutes to reduce weight and improve cooling. The MG-67was developed to fire 7.62x51mm ammunition, but when need for smaller caliber MG was recognised, the Mini-67 kits were developed in 1994 to convert any MG-67to fire 5.56x45mm. These kits consist of new barrel, bolt, gas piston, feed cover and some other small parts, and with these kits the MG-67 could be converted from one chambering to another in the matter of minutes.

 

 

Mk.5 Winter

Caliber: 7.62x51mm

Weight: 8.2 kg without ammunition and optical sights

Length: 1000 mm

Length of barrel: 720mm

Feed: belt

Rate of fire: ~ 700 rounds/min

 

The Mk.5 Winter Machine gun is specifically designed for winter combat. The demand for a winter MG came after several M63 Machine guns jammed due to water entering the chamber and freezing. The Mk.5 utalizes 'open space' design of the Kalashnikov rifles. There is plenty of space inside the weapon, which allows any water to freeze and stay out of the way of the moving parts.

 

The Mk.5 rarely jamms or overheats thanks to the open nature of the weapon. It is reliable and durable.

 

Price: 1,100 Shillings

HARM (High-speed Anti-Radiation Missile)

user posted image

 

The HARM (high-speed antiradiation missile) is a supersonic air-to-surface tactical missile designed to seek and destroy enemy radar-equipped air defense systems. The HARM can detect, attack and destroy a target with minimum aircrew input. Guidance is provided through reception of signals emitted from a ground-based threat radar. It has the capability of discriminating a single target from a number of emitters in the environment. The proportional guidance system that homes in on enemy radar emissions has a fixed antenna and seeker head in the missile nose. A smokeless, solid-propellant, dual-thrust rocket motor propels the missile.

 

The system consists of the guided missile, launcher, launch aircraft, and HARM peculiar avionics. The weapon system has the capability of detecting, acquiring, displaying, and selecting a radiating threat and launching a missile or missiles. The HARM Missile receives target parameters from the launch aircraft prior to launch. The HARM Missile uses these parameters and relevant attitude data to process incoming RF energy to acquire and guide the HARM Missile to the desired target. The HARM missile has a terminal homing capability that provides a launch and leave capability for the launch aircraft. Additional unique features include the high speed, low smoke, rocket motor and seeker sensitivity that enable the missile to easily attack sidelobes and backlobes of an emitter.

user posted image

 

The M10 was designed to combine a tank's firepower with a highly mobile, air-droppable vehicle. The M10 is the result of the Armored Gun System (AGS) concept that originated in the early 1980s to provide light forces with more powerful direct support. The M10 resembles a conventional tank, but only requires a crew of three through the use of an autoloader. Its main armament is a 105mm Rheinmetall XM35 tank gun. The M-35 cannon is a low-recoil gun that allows the use of previously developed 105mm ammunition. The autoloader holds 21 projectiles with nine more stowed forward near the driver. Fire control is provided by a digital fire control system with microprocessors and a databus similar to that on the T110. The gunner's primary sight is a day/night thermal sight and integrated laser range-finder in a stabilized mount.

Improved Crystal Recon Satellite

user posted image

Improved Crystal is an enhanced system used to collect hi-resolution imagery and real-time intel from space. At 16,300kg it is much heavier than civilian satellites and has greater orbit manoeuvring potential from the 6,350kg of propellant it carries in the aft support module. Moreover, with improved sensors operating in visible and near infra-red portions of the spectrum, Improved Crystal is capable of thermal imaging to determine whether facilities under surveillance are active are not.

 

The telescope itself takes the configuration of a folded Cassegrain type with a 4m diameter primary mirror but with a secondary mirror that can obtain images far to the left or right of the satellite's ground track, albeit with diminished resolution. The similarity between the Improved Crystal generation and the Hubble Space Telescope can be inferred. The use of low light-level CCD image intensifiers allows the provision of night-time pictures and the processing electronics allow sharper pictures. Improved Crystal can take an image every five seconds. These are then relayed through Milstat satellites, placing huge demands on the data relay and image processing activity. However, the National Photo Interpretation Center can be scanning 10cm resolution images from the other side of the world within five minutes, relaying information back through to the Tarentum Command Authority or to field commanders within seconds.

ACS-119 (Amphibious Command Ship)

user posted image

 

ACS-119 utilizes it's "main battery" of computers, communications equipment and other electronic facilities to fulfill her mission as flagship for the Confederation Naval Fleet. These systems are also instrumental in her secondary function as a command ship for the Amphibious Task Force and Landing Force Commanders during all phases of fleetwide operations, as well as a Commander Joint Task Force (CJTF) flagship when national interests require it.

 

The ACS-119 is the most capable command ship ever built by Confederation contractors, with an extremely sophisticated Command and Control system. The Joint Maritime Command Information System(JMCIS) consists of numerous powerful computers distributed throughout the ship from which information and data from worldwide sources are entered into a central database. This single integrated database concentrates the available information into a complete tactical picture of air, surface and subsurface contacts, enabling the Fleet Commander to quickly assess and concentrate on any situation which might arise. This ability to access information from military and civilian sources throughout the world gives ACS-119 a global command and control capability unparalleled in Naval history.

 

In addition to its sophisticated command and control system, an extremely refined communications system is also an integral part of the ship's radical new design. Through an automated patch panel and computer-controlled switching matrix, any combination of communications equipment desired may be quickly connected. The "clean" topside area is the result of careful design intended to keep the ship's interference to its own communications system at a minimum.

 

Specifications

 

Power Plant: Two GENR nuclear engines 60,000 horsepower

Length overall: 634 feet (190 meters)

Beam extreme; 108 feet (32 meters)

Displacement: 18,874 tons (16,987 metric tons) full load
