The End and New Beginnings
- Game version:
The Miners Coalition have suffered many setbacks in their short time in space and many more in their long history.
During the Coalitions initial foray into the stars they discovered large quantities of usable resources in the abundant asteroid belts surrounding their system.
Groups large and small within the Coalition combined their resources to expand out into neighboring systems in the hope of striking it rich and beat out their rival factions.
The Coalitions people have had to adapt to the new way in a short time. This has caused technology to advance in starts and spurts as new issues have to be worked around.
Even their ships have been adapted to the harsh conditions within the belts from civilian transport and construction vessels.
Eventually, others took notice of the budding Coalition and pirates began to raid and pillage many outposts.
Much of the Miner's territory was lost due to the speed of the expansion only allowing minimal defenses being created and trained.
The various factions within the Coalition soon saw their predicament and confirmed the need to combine all remaining resources.
Soon many of their remaining ships had been retrofitted with weapons and armor plates instead of drills and grabber arms.
Now the people of the Miners Coalition must work together to maintain what territory they still own and hopefully someday retake what they’ve lost.
MC Guardian Class Light Patrol Vessel
During a time of desperation to retain what territories were left still under MC control, engineers have converted fuel transport vessels into the Guardian Class Vessel. Converted to fill the role of a light patrol vessel with its previous fuel storage components replaced with turret hardpoints to serve as both an anti-fighter role and an AMS platform. It has also been fitted with duel small projectile launchers as it's main weaponry. Scanning equipment has also been fitted to track any potential threats within its vicinity. This two-man vessel serves best as an escort to assist other craft with navigating through un-secure zones.
Engineering Bay/ Storage
Builder's note: This ship was originally going to be a scout ship but soon discontinued the ship. I'm glad I came back to the frame and remodeled it because it turned out great. Really gives off that gritty industrial look the MC is all about. The turrets are currently missing at the moment which I will update with turrets along with refitting it's primary weapon once the weapon update is officially released. Of course I always open to suggestions for this ship or for the faction.
