The O1/WL8 Volans is the heavy hoverdyne of the Order of the New Dawn. The heavy hoverdyne is very slow but makes up for it with extremely heavy armor and great firepower. It cannot engage airborne targets.

DescriptionEdit

The massive O1/WL8 - Volans is the Order of the New Dawn’s largest hoverdyne capable of unsurpassed destruction. The Volans is sometimes called God’s Might in inspiring Order speeches. The hoverdyne is often employed by the Order as stationary guns additionally protected by sandbags or other protection. Some critics claim that the Volans is too slow on the battlefield and that it would be more suitable to call it a mobile cannon instead of a hoverdyne.

It is an incredible honor to command and crew a Volans and the privilege are only given to those soldiers with an impeccable religious background. Volans crews are selected from the children of the priesthood at an early age and are both mentally and physically trained during their entire adolescence.

The fearsome Volans is not only huge on the battlefield; it’s turret supports a twin mounted Shogata-PDX9 particle beam accelerator. It was praised during the Atherstone acquisition for its supreme firepower and accuracy but the skilled Pax Dei technicians have not yet been able to improve its relatively slow fire rate. The fusion generator is not able reenergize the particle accelerator any faster without endangering the crew.

The Volans armor consists of a thick titanium-4 layer, reinforced with electro-treated crysteel bars. The heavy armor is responsible for its low acceleration but, according to most Pax Dei officers, is still a good tradeoff.
