Maquis SIM Project/Support
This small craft was built in the Badlands after the return of USS Voyager from the Delta Quadrant. Plans for the "Delta Flyer" were downloaded into Starfleet Command Headquarters Computers and appropriated by a Maquis computer tap. The retired IC then had the "Badlands Flyer" commissioned from the plans.
The Flyer has excellent speed, maneuverability and firepower for it's size. This tough little craft makes an excellent addition to support the Sim Fleet. As with the original, the Badlands Flyer features a tetraburnium alloy hull, retractable warp nacelles, parametallic hull plating, unimatrix shielding, and photonic missiles.
Anti-gravity bikes (Grav Bikes) are the modern equivalent of the Earth motorcycle. The Harley Davidson HGW-1888 "Heavy Grav Bike" is capable of carrying up to two persons in tandem, and a moderate amount of stowage in the rear pannier. Widely used as short-range transportation for reconnaissance, they consist of an anti-gravity generator, a micro-fusion power source, an RCS thruster system and a seat. They have no life support systems or shields. The HGW is armed with a Type III Phaser emitter and enhanced short range sensors.
While they can be used in space with the aid of an environmental suit, they are almost always encountered on a planetary surface. Grav bikes are incapable of achieving orbit, and are generally operated at heights of less than 50 meters. Although they do not have a true autopilot, they can be preset to follow a programmed set of way-points and have a basic auto-avoidance warning system. In the case of an injured or incapacitated operator, they can be slaved to another grav bike, or operated remotely from the SOC Runabout.
Type 7 Shuttles
The type-7 shuttle is usually unarmed, although, it can be retrofitted with standard phasers if needed. It also features a medium-range transporter, and a rear-access personnel hatch. The interior is customizable and can feature open bench seating, cargo space, desks and work spaces, sleeping accommodations for up to four people, a general living space, as well as a few other mission options.
Thousands of these shuttles are in operation. They are commonly assigned to larger ships, as well as starbases, outposts, colonies and other facilities. They are used by Starfleet, Federation civilian organizations, and Maquis vessels. This class of shuttle is also available for private ownership.

Type 9 Shuttles
Our Task Force utilizes a wide variety of shuttles, but the most versatile is the Type 9 Shuttle (aka the "Class 2"). The Type-9 is small enough to be carried aboard a "VQ" Group Maquis Raider but large enough to transport supplies, as well as supply extra fire-power in hazardous situations. The Type 9 has been retrofit to include 2 Micro-Torpedo tubes: 1 Fore / 1 Aft. Thanks to USS Voyager finding a "new" form of dilithium, the Type 9 can achieve maximum speeds in excess of Warp 9.
The "Argo" style ATV comes in very handy as a land based reconnaissance vehicle, especially on planets with atmospheric conditions which interfere with Scanners and Tricorders. As the buggy has the capability to roof-mount phaser rifles, it would also come in handy for mechanised land assault incidents. While the Runabout MFS TIGRIS is capable of holding 2 Buggies each, the MFS SILVERADO model Maquis Raider can hold up to 6 buggies each, for larger reconnaissance missions.
Mobile Torpedo Launcher
The Mobile Torpedo Launcher is a weapons platform beamed into battlefield areas coordinated by the Nova's deployed Ground Assault Arrow Runabout. The Arrow serves as a relay for the Nova's sensors and transporters enabling pinpoint accuracy for beam in and beam out. These launchers carry 20 Mark XXV Micro-Torpedoes, smaller versions of the traditional ship based torpedoes, with a yield making surgical strikes against hostile ground forces and other land based targets ideal. An Assault Nova will carry six of these heavy hitting weapons and beam in two at a time. When the 20 Mark XXV's are depleted, two fresh lauchers are beamed in while the two beamed out are reloaded. This enables the Nova and Arrow to coordinate the deployment of freshly armed torpedo launchers for support of the ground forces for penetration, defense, or for withdrawls.
