The Sphinx is essentially a mobile repair dock. During engagements it provides a means for fighters to recieve minor repairs an return to battle. It also provides a means to rapidly retrieve damaged small craft and perform basic salvage operations without the need for a capital sized ship.

The Sphinx is actual a 3 part system. It's comprised of the Scarab command frigate, the Sphinx skiff platform and the Sarco scout drone. The Scarab houses the entire crew, most of the major repair systems are mounted on the Sphinx and the Sarco provides a safe way to explore dangerous environments.

The Sphinx platfrom contains a wide variety of repair systems including:

  • Deuterium Refueling Arm
  • Auxilary Fusion Power Supply
  • 11,000 Gallon High PSI Fuel Tank
  • Twin Fusion Cutters
  • Articulated Manipulation Arm
  • Ordiance Disposal Bay
  • Re-Crystalization Chamber

Scarab Command Frigate

The Scarab Command Frigate is one of the most common ships in the Red Faction fleet. It is designed to attach to a variety of different skiffs and external weapons systems. The Scarab has room for 3 crew and has contols and computer systems for every thing from logistics to advanced targeting.

One of the largest drawbacks of the Scarab is the small crew area. Unlike most frigates, the crew area is standing room only and there are only enough supplies on board to last for short missions. On many missions, the crews have actually disabled the artificial gravity to make it easier to move around the cabin.

Sarco Scout Drone

The Sarco scout drone is a simple multi-purpose autonomous drone. It's primary use in the Sphinx system is to investigate areas where there may be radiation or other dangerous situations. It has a variety of sensor systems and 4 small manipulation claws that can be used to clear small debris or tow valuable pieces of salvage back to the Sphinx.

A very complex and well designed craft. I like the moving and detachable parts and the asymmetry of the whole thing is very appealing. Excellent!

Quoting Yuri Fassio One of the best civilian vessels I saw. Very probable, and thus realistic, design. And I also like the color :)
I'm slowly trying to build out an entire fleet of vessels one faction at a time, so there should be a good variety of probable ships.

Quoting Greg hager cool ships! i really like that the command frigate has a canopy that goes all the way from front to the end of the ship
That's a dealer installed option... power moonroof.
