Patrol Corps Mothership

PatrolCorpsMothership1 (55K)


The multipurpose warship of the patrol corps that assists the in the task of maintaining public order. The galactic patrol corps engage in the preservation of public order of planet Zola in the form of cooperation [collaboration] with the Unified Forces. While operating the VF-5000 Star Mirage as the mainline fighter, the patrol corps supports the VF-5000 with military vessels used at the same time in undertaking the task of controlling the poaching group. This patrol corps mother-ship can not only cruise on the water, making it suited to operate on planet Zola, which has spacious ocean areas, but it also possesses the ability to cruise inside and outside of an atmosphere. However, because as a combat vessel the ship is small and incompetent, it can be said that the role of an auxiliary vessel that supports the operation of the VFs was the meaning of this warship.

Planet Zola is located in the 67th planetary region of space in the galactic frontier. The energy body that is called the Galactic Whale, wanders to the satellite orbit of planet Zola in a seasonal migration with a one year period. At that time, the poaching group that attempts to capture the galactic whales prevails, and the Galactic Patrol Corps of the Zola autonomous government pursues the poaching group to manage the galactic whales. In the cases where the patrol corps mother ship is operated, the poaching group is mainly arrested at satellite orbit, and the ship supports each VF from the rear. Even though the ship seldom joined the VFs in combat, it was involved in operations that are impossible for the VF to deal with on it's own, such as transport and emergency measures of situations such as accommodating suspects who had been arrested and casualties that have appeared. When Nekki Basara visited Zola in 2047, the mother-ship was also mobilized to control the poaching group above satellite orbit, and escort the arrestees. Moreover, the mother-ship accommodated Basara, who was rescued by corps member Raiza Hoirii after he was thrown out into space, and transported him to the corps' headquarters.

The patrol corps mobilizes the mother-ship when they are required to do large-scale arrest actions. In those case, the mother-ship follows the VFs and proceeds to the scene of the crime. It was a warship with great multi-purposefulness, that is endowed with the ability to independently exit and reenter the atmosphere, in the same way as a VF.

The VFs of the patrol corps dis-empowers the poaching group, and the mother-ship takes the secured suspects into custody, and takes them back to headquarters. It can be said that while the VFs were to the bitter end the main force of the corps, the mother-ship existed to work nearly behind the scenes.

Though this ship can be called an Earth regulated one, it's structure is greatly different from the likes of the UN Forces military vessels. The mother-ship has a unique form that combines level and curved surfaces. It is thought that this is because it has adopted the design of an aquatic warship. The mother-ship is furnished with a bridge in the top part of the warship's bow, and 4 propulsion engines in the top part, and 2 engines in the lower part of the warship's stern. Moreover, when landing on the water, the wing-shaped units on both sides of the ship fold up. The line of the wing-shaped units becomes the waterline when cruising on the water. Furthermore, in times of peace, the mother-ship comes alongside the quay in the part of the harbour adjacent to the patrol corps headquarters.

  1. Depleting the MDC of the main body will put the ship out of commission. All internal systems will shut down, including life support and internal gravity. The ship itself will be an unsalvageable floating wreck.
  2. Destroying the Bridge will instantly kill the command staff and deprive the ship of all forms of long range communications, radar and targeting. The range and targeting capabilities of the secondary systems are equal to that of a VF-11 Thunderbolt. The ship can still operate, but is at -3 on initiative, -3 to strike, and number of attacks per melee of the weapon systems are reduced by half. Destroying the main sensory array atop the Bridge will have the same effect, but the command staff will not be killed instantly.
  3. Depleting the MDC of the main engines will force the ship to rely on its secondary engines. Depleting the MDC of the main engines AND secondary engines will leave the ship adrift in space. If in an atmosphere, the ship will crash (destruction of the main engines will render the antigravity system useless due to loss of power).
  4. When bottom shell sections are open, vertical ascent/descent thrusters are exposed.
