Homing Missiles (Airships)

A homing missile used as standard ordnance by Imperial airships. While it can be used against both ground and air targets, the limited supply of missiles that can be equipped at any one time forces gunners to choose their targets well.

Homing Missiles (Hovertanks)

A homing missile equipped by Imperial tanks. The basic specifications are similar to those for the missiles used aboard airships.

Missiles

These shells were exclusively designed to be used for the experimental missile launcher. Although these shells can self-adjust their trajectory to compensate for target movement, etc. more accurately than previous homing missiles, they lack the...

Patrol Airship Vayu

A ship primarily used for communication, it flies around excavation sites informing workers on the status of other areas of the site. It is also sometimes used to transport supplies to various regions of the site.
