TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

SPECIAL FEATURES

Strengths:

  • Can drop bombs without need for resupply
  • Slim flank profile
  • Can adjust plasma bomb size
  • Can resist ion/EMP attacks

Weaknesses:

  • Slow bombing rate of fire
  • Short-range hyperdrive
  • Exposed engines
  • Unstable bomblet generator can take out the craft if the bomblet generator is fired too often

Description: The need for the Chiloon-II arose from the experience of Tartarus, when it was found that the original Chiloon's limited ordnance capacity was a liability when aircraft survivability was expected to be higher. In the Chiloon-II, the cockpit is placed forward, with the heavy bomblet generator being behind the cockpit and the reactor right behind it. On the wing blisters are the primary weapons of the craft, with the two guns of the original craft being replaced by electromagnetic plasma guns, due to concerns over ammunition capacity. Also, the heavy conventional bomb bay was replaced by a heavy bomblet generator that can provide an unlimited supply of plasma bombs, albeit slow-firing and can be a problem if fired too often. In addition, its limited fuel tank means that it can only last so long in a hyperspace flight before it needs to refuel.

 

However, its exposed engines at the rear make it a liability in a stern chase: a skilled enemy can aim at the engines and swat out a Chiloon of the sky in a stern chase. That, even though the Chiloon is not the fastest nor the most maneuverable, it can keep up with the T-70 X-Wing (albeit barely). Nevertheless the Chiloon can accomplish a wide variety of aerial missions: dogfights, ground attack (strafing or bombing).
