    Enhanced AX Project: AX Missile Rack Turreted

    Location: Eurybia / Awyra Flirble | Contributors: 3,407 | End: Feb 2, 2023

    Two leading engineers have revealed designs to improve the stock anti-xeno weaponry available to pilots.

    Liz Ryder and Zacariah Nemo have provided module modifications for many years, specialising in explosive and kinetic weapons respectively. Over the past year they have collaborated privately on the AX weapon designs introduced by Aegis in 3303, seeking to improve the efficiency of delivering a compound, hazardous to Thargoid vessels, which tips AX ammunition.

    Ryder explained to The Imperial Herald:

    "Zack and I share a passion for weapon upgrades, and have often used this project as a way to unwind after a long week's work. But when the Taranis signal arrived and the Thargoid forces started taking control of systems, we knew we had to reveal the designs to the public. We're going to need help from independent pilots to finish off the prototypes and get a manufacturing base set up."

    This campaign is for a turret-mount enhanced AX Missile Rack, to be made available in both Medium and Large sizes. Eurybia Blue Mafia has agreed to process deliveries, with Liz Ryder vouching for the faction's commitment to the anti-xeno project despite concerns over their reputation.

    The project will run for eight weeks. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately and the turret-mount enhanced AX Missile Rack will be made available at all rescue megaships shortly afterwards.

    The Kingfisher megaship has requested supplies for its planned journey to greet the first rogue signal source.

    Shipments of basic medicines, fruit and vegetables are required for the Kingfisher's crew, who will be joined by over 3,000 supporters of the Thargoid Advocacy Project. Muon Imagers and semiconductors have also been requested to establish the mission's communications arrays, which are being designed to initiate contact with the Thargoids.

    Congressman Dalton Chase gave a press statement regarding the initiative:

    "Now that we know the approaching anomalies are Thargoid, many are concerned that hostilities between our species will escalate. However, a brave group of volunteers see this as an opportunity to prove that diplomacy can work. An alien race has sent emissaries toward humanity's space, and it is our duty to meet them with words rather than weapons."

    "The first of the anomalies, which we have named Taranis, is predicted to pass through Hyades Sector YO-Q b5-1. Using the high-level protocols available to Congress, I have successfully obtained a temporary access restriction that grants an exclusive permit to the Kingfisher. A range of broadcasts using multiple techniques will try to attract the Thargoids' attention. Hopefully, the entity will slow down long enough to give some acknowledgement of these attempts."

    The delivery initiative in the Andavandul system is being managed by Deutsche Elite Piloten Interstellar.

    If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

    In order to protect deliveries to Blenkinsop Hub, Deutsche Elite Piloten Interstellar is offering increased payouts on bounty voucher redemptions.

    Protect Azimuth Deliveries from Anarchists

    Location: Wandrama / Musashi | Contributors: 2,744 | End: Nov 10, 2022

    Azimuth Biotech has announced a campaign in the Wandrama system to expand its military and surface facility capacity.

    The controversial weapons developer has seen a recent downturn in fortunes, due to fierce opposition by independent pilots protesting Azimuth's history of illicit research.

    Azimuth Biotech CEO Torben Rademaker announced the initiative:

    "After a period of reflection, it is time for Azimuth to once again step forward and assume a position of support for the brave pilots engaging Thargoid forces wherever they are encountered. To do this, we shall establish a new megaship equipped to operation in Thargoid-tainted systems. The tragic loss of the Bright Sentinel and Heart of Taurus in HIP 22460 must not hinder our ambition any further."

    Within hours of the announcement, opponents of Azimuth Biotech had organised a counter-campaign to prevent deliveries from reaching Wandrama. Combat between Azimuth security forces and anti-Azimuth activists has been reported in the system. In response, Azimuth is hosting a combat initiative from the Musashi megaship alongside the ongoing delivery campaign.

    Azimuth Biotech has offered the following rewards to attract support from independent pilots:

    The top 75% of contributors will receive one Fixed-Mount, Class 2 Overcharged Guardian Plasma Charger. The top 25% of contributors will receive two Fixed-Mount, Class 2 Overcharged Guardian Plasma Chargers.

    The two factions have set out week-long operations to take control of the system, which will begin on the 3rd November 3308.
