And thus my creation
74656 Delta Flyer
Two-seater biplane AC3 AV9, 350 HP, Original 20 existent, 19 destroyed, 0 copied totaling now 1.
Forward Air speed 450’/round.,Space speed 14 Mile/second MF 2, Tank capacity 1 light Year (6 trillion miles) Many!! HD magic). (unused sofar—if used tank would be filled with a minimum of 1 HD per 1000 feet, thus 1 mile=5280 ft thus needs 6 HD-rounded up)
Weaponry (Typical); None,(originally 1 Heavy Blaster (see page 1507). no bomb bay (max load 4 persons) Air generator on tank.
Currently not in use yet, as flying mechanism and generator is currently not understood.
Unable to copy, or repair other examples, as no important parts can be made or found (they all corroded beyond usefulness).
Has a 40 mile teleporter on board (1 person only—controlled by one person). Teleports as normal Spell, but without ending in solid matter chance, by teleporting too low. (Too high is still possible though).
Board computer currently offline, if online, not intelligent, used only for controlling flight and onboard mechanisms.
Can generate Shield modulator; in effect equal to a Shield and protection from normal missiles spell.
Originally targeted use; main vessel to planet transport, where teleport fails.
