SLUAV

The first of its kind, a small UAV designed to be launched by submarines.



Grouping:
N/A

Armament:
2x Guardian SSAAMs

Backstory:
The SLUAV (Submarine-Launched Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) is a specialized UAV designed for use by Scinfaxi-class submarines. Depending on the application, SLUAVs can defend the submarine by firing on hostile units or act as marker drones for long-range attacks.

The Union of Yuktobanian Republics developed the Hrimfaxi to feature unmanned technology, reducing its crew size compared to the Scinfaxi. This included submarine-launched UAVs that would defend the Hrimfaxi from attack. During the Osean Federation's Operation Long Harpoon during the Circum-Pacific War, the Hrimfaxi launched the SLUAVs to defend itself from Wardog Squadron. Wardog either shot down the SLUAVs or caused them to lose their guidance after sinking the Hrimfaxi.

The Alicorn, a larger variant of the Scinfaxi-class submersibles, also carried these same SLUAVs.

Notes of the Aircraft:
This aircraft has the means to do whatever you wish, so long as you have a brain while piloting this. It can be unstable due to its small vertical stabilizer, but as long as you’re a good pilot, you should be able to shoot down those Osean scum. Or, alternatively, use it as a target for your missiles, and train your shots with it.

    My Friend... Let me Tell you a Story... back when I was a Gunnery-- I mean Back before the Announcement of Update 1.9:

    I had to Solve the "Missile-dies-when-touch-water" problem by twisting the values of the XML File.

    The Results were all a failure, and still, I managed to continue.....

    @EvilRaven31 Well, you gotta differentiate the UAVs from the SLUAVs somehow.
    And thanks!
