NWO Military DSs News: All Inisfreean dropships are now extremely luxurious, their focus being hardened (armored) interplanetary pleasure palaces.

Inisfreean DropShips are egg-shaped Spacecraft designed to carry entire armies to and from any battlefield, predominantly along short flights from Inisfreean WarShips or ColonyPods to planet-side locations.
This type of Inisfreean construct will be deployed whenever there is warfare on the state or lake (Great Lakes size) level.
Dimensions & Layout:
Diameter: 20pxl (as viewed in this website's city maps) wide (at the lowest hangar level) = 1,320' (20x66)
Height: 19pxl tall = 1,254' (19x66)
Floorspace: 1,370,000 sqft. (for the widest levels)
Stories: ~70 (excluding the tallest levels used for the IC BMs) (1,254'-528' = 726' of vertical space for levels)
Upper Levels: ~20 (excluding the tallest levels used for the IC BMs, and the 120'-tall level for the landing gear) (assuming some levels are 2-3 stories; 20'-30' for the WRs and MPHAs, etc.)
Total Floorspace: ~27,400,000 sqft. (1,370,000 x 20 levels)
Personnel: 750,000 IC MFs
Dispersion: ~1 IC MF per 36 sqft.; ~1 IC MF per 6'x6' area (27,400,000 sqft. / 750,000 IC MFs) if evenly dispersed
Overall Layout: radial; 4 subdivisions/hangars per level, all arranged evenly around a central AIOW
Vertical Layout & Primary Inventory Items:
Total Complement: 750,000 troops; 500 battalions, 20,000 tanks, 10,000 APCs, 4,000 fighter-jets, 1,000 cargo aircraft, and 4 BattleMechs
- Top level: cockpit (5 IC MFs on living thrones made of 3D Celtic-style weaves of IC MFs; ~55 IC MFs total)
- Higher section: FJs (8,000 IC MFs inside 4,000 IC FJs)
- High section: MPHAs (52,000 IC MFs inside 1,000 IC MPHAs)
- Middle section: STs (389,396 IC MFs; Inisfreean Infantry units; ~20 divisions; ~100 regiments/brigades; ~500 battalions)
- Low section: TKs (120,000 IC MFs inside 20,000 IC TKs)
- Lower section: WRs (180,000 IC MFs inside 10,000 IC WRs)
- Lowest hangars: BMs (604 IC MFs inside 4 IC BMs)
- Bottom section: landing gear, etc.
So each IC DS has almost as many personnel as the United States' Army, Navy, and Air Force combined during 2012, or nearly 4 times the total number of U.S. Marines during that year. Thus, when an Inisfreean DropShip lands, it is like deploying the entire armed forces of a superpower nation.
* Tonnage & composition are classified.
Far more advanced than a human dropship, Inisfreean dropships incorporate cloaking, teleportation, fly-by-mind interfaces, quantum filter wall-hatches, smart-skin, and even warp-surfing. Due to the small size of Inisfreeans, as well as how brilliantly they pack themselves and their gear and vehicles, Inisfreean Spacecraft can carry many whole-number multiples the maximum capacities of most Outlander vessels of comparable classes, dimensions, and natures.
Like all ST and AP suits, Inisfreean DSs have the following appearance and cloaking options:
- Basic / Nude (matte white)
- Cloaked (transparent, showing Outer Space straight through it)
- Masked (disguised as an asteroid or comet)
- Nova (flashing with the brightness of a star in order to surprise, disorient, or even blind nearby enemies, or remaining as bright as a normal star)
