During the United Earth Government and Terran Alliance of Genesis wars, Ody's were the backbone of the UESF occupation forces. VTOL and modular weapon systems make the Ody a tactical choice weather it be utilized for bombing runs or troop transports.
About this creation
This modular gunship of the United Earth Space Forces is capable of faster then light jumps, planetary insertion, anti armor, anti infantry, anti aircraft, and transport ops. A troop carriage can be installed on the belly of the Ody for rapid troop deployment and evac, or the Ody can be loaded with conventional weaponry.
The Gau 8 on the nose is a relic from the 21st century but it is the standard main gun for the Ody.
She is VTOL capable and can carry up to 20,000 lbs max load whether it be troops or weapons before she is rendered unable to fly. In space she can be equiped with robotic arms instead of wings and be used as a repair boat or logistics unit for capital ships.
Her only weakness is lack of heavy armor and her exposed engines.
