That many of the natives dub it something so reminiscent of their term "fool" is fitting. They would have to be fools to challenge it in the skies." - Jyrvikani Hiraak Murvolgis


Tactical information

  • Got unidentified bogeys incoming: The Foo-Fighter is a powerful and dangerous air superiority tool available to an Ervanik, though it is a relic by Ecumenical standards. It's hard-light weaponary can quickly bring down enemy aircraft, while it's superior flight characteristics and durability allow it to rule the air.
  • Like a Torch in the sky: Whereas most Earth jets simply hit the after burner to return to base, the Foo-fighter instead activates an EM field that creates a frictionless bubble around itself and diverts power to it's kinetic drive engines, making it seem to be wreathed in fire
  • The ground shall never have it: Foo Fighters are not permitted to engage in ground attack missions due to their inefficiency at that particular role, meaning that they are unable to retaliate against ground based fire. In addition, compared to most other fliers of their category; Foo Fighters are quite the investment.
  • BRRRRRT: Foo Fighters that gain the attentions of the merit computers are allowed to requisition a rotary kinetic accelerator cannon that allow them to deal substantially more damage, and more particularly shred heavy aircraft with a withering storm of extremely high speed projectiles to rip through their hulls.

Unit History

While strange sights in the sky have been detected since the start of history, it has only been recently that the sightings of these UFOs has exploded so dramatically. In truth, the Ecumene is but one of the contributors to these fantastical visitors in the airways above the Earth. In addition to the secret aircraft and missiles being tested by the conventional powers and the general veil of secrecy around Atomic China, the Protectorate and Talon both operate vehicles in the skies that most would rather summarily dismiss than pay any real heed. But the Ecumene's aircraft are certainly nothing to ignore. Ever since the days of Imperial Germany's zeppelins and Gotha bombers, pilots have reported seeing something akin to burning lights inhabiting the skies, pulling off incredible maneuvers.

It was not until the second world war during the air war for Eurasia that this phenomenon was given a name that internationally stuck however. Foo-Fighters. Reported by both Communist and Allied forces, these craft would weave into formations of aircraft, seeming especially fond of night fighter or bomber formations. (WIP)
