The Aegis Dynamics’ Retaliator has landed! One of the United Empire of Earth’s most powerful warbirds, the Retaliator, was designed as a fearsome weapons platform designed to strike and kill capital ships. A key portion of the UEE’s power projection, Retaliator squadrons have served with distinction against outlaws, the Vanduul, and elsewhere. The base version of the Retaliator is customizable with additional modules to fit your needs.
The Retaliator is a strategic bomber developed by Aegis Dynamics for the United Empire of Earth Navy (UEEN). Variants of the spacecraft have been used in the UEEN for three centuries. Despite distinguishing themselves in various operations such as the Battle of Idris IV (2544), they are most commonly associated with the abuses of the Messer regime (2546-2792). The current model of the Retaliator was built with modular bays which allow it to be converted from its original role to serve as a cargo or dropship. Civilians are known to extensively customize surplus Retaliators for non-wartime roles.
Here is a short history of publications about the series from the RSI website.
The Retaliator is a modular ship with multiple front and rear modules. They are
- Living Space (Front and Rear)
Your home away from home! The front and rear living quarters turn your Retaliator into a miniature hangar, complete with space to make your own. Standard equipment includes a retractable dining table, holo-screen, personal storage area and drink machine (front) or a sink, personal storage area, two couches, retractable table, and holo-screen (rear) but can be configured to your specifications!
- Cargo (Front and Rear)
Replace your bomb bays with cargo! Each option (front and rear) includes the ability to add 20 Standard Cargo Units of freight and an independent lift platform for maximum loading speed. The lift platforms lower to the ground for easy loading and can be raised/lowered from either the station on the platform or from the ship’s interior.
- Dropship (Front Only)
Get ready for the amphibious assault! The Retaliator’s drop ship module has seats for twelve troopers, complete with safety harnesses and two heavy weapon racks in the middle of the lift. The outer ring of the bay serves as an armory, including two grenade/ammunition cases, four rifle racks, two sidearm racks, and energy recharge stations for all standard power armor.
- Torpedo Bays
Standard equipment for most UEE military Retaliators, the ship was designed to mount two torpedo bays. The forward bay carries four torpedoes while the rear bay adds two more.
