The Black Wing by GleamingScythe The Black Wing by GleamingScythe
The Black Paw's ultimate weapon in the fight against Monarch. The Black Wing's the Black Paw's massive Sky Battleship. It was donated to The Black Paw by former Felonian Senator August Hali to aid them in their quest to do away with Salvatica's Monarchy. It's August's hope that a Salvatica free from the rule of The Monarchy will be more open to the idea of peace between the two countries. Despite his noble intentions, August has paid a high price to donate the ship. Originally it was called The Madakai, and was the third Dominator Class Sky Batleship to leave the Felonian aerial ship yards. So large is The Dominator Class, that all twelve ships of the line were constructed aboard a massive station in the sky. The twelve Dominator class sky battleships literally spear headed The Felonian Tax Federation's final push against The Felonian seperatist Oniwaban movement during The Felonian civil war. These dagger shaped aircraft would charge full on into The Oniwaban's impenetrable floating mountain fortresses, then unload ATTA Class troop carriers into the fortress, while opening fire with their double barrelled 680mm cannons, and tri-barrelled hyper plasma cannons. The tri-barrell hyper plasma cannons were the only weapons in The Felonian arsenal powerful enough to bring down the soul walls often placed around an Oniwaban mountain fortress by their Sages. Due to the incredible destructive power of these weapons, there was a massive public outcry for their removal following the war. Four Dominator class ships were lost to The Oniwaban during the war, and two others were recycled. Of the remaining six, all have had their hyper plasma cannons removed. One remains in active service as part of The Felonian Police Force, a second has been placed at The Felonian War musuem, and the rest are kept in storage. It was from storage that August managed to acquire The Madakai, and rechristended it The Black Wing. In terms of Ammonite, the purchase nearly bankrupted the family, and the illegal export of the weapon would ultimately lead to August's arrest when he was forced to return to Felonia due to an injury he suffered while fighting alongside The Black Paw. The Black Wing doesn't have it's hyper plasma cannons, but it does have the twin 680mm cannons, as well as six (four in the front, two in the rear) 210mm autocannon turrets, and it's most versatile weapon, four missile launch silos that can fire off a myriad of defensive and offensive missiles. The giant ship manages to move through the air not under the power of it's six rotors, but due to one of Felonia's most ingenious inventions; the graviton deflector. Though it's a powerful weapon, it's also come to be home to The Black Paw, and the crew of dozens of rodents who help man it.
