Valhalla Motors (VM)


Company Logo - A silhouette of a longboat
Tied closely to Herculean Arms Corp, it is from this corporation that VM purchases most of its engines
for all of its vehicles as well as the military equipment for their combat models. Most business
is done with Herculean Arms, but they go to Daravon to purchase targeting, sensory equipment, and
computers. They desire to bring a high quality product to all their customers so they generally
don't shirk on quality parts.

Verdande ( Class B - Resource Requirement: 3 )

In a market begging for cheap, affordable, and easy to maintain economy cars, Valhalla Motors
teams up with Herculean Arms to bring the people the Verdande. Designed with the concept that
cost is the top priority with quality getting the short end of the stick, the car just isn't
seen on the upper plate unless driven by a delivery person, a lost person, or some forgotten,
and very poor, relative.

The parts are mostly made by no-name subsidiaries of Herculean Arms, with a Herculean LIT-2
electric generator. Some early models were known as 'fortune cookies' because they made up
93% of all Wutaiin owned cars, and because the body was known for it's low breaking point and
overall fragility.

Freiya ( Class B - Resource Requirement: 6 )

Due to a mixed reaction with the initial release of the lovingly labeled 'fortune cookie',
Valhalla Motors and Herculean Arms went back to the drawing board in an attempt to find a
more acceptable middle ground. While the Verdande continued to be produced, VM eventually
finished the design on the Freiya.

While most of the parts are still made by nameless subcorporations of Herculean Arms, the
parts are of a bit better quality. Doors aren't as liable to cave in and, in the case of an
accident, the chances of ending up dead dropped exponentially in comparison to the Verdande.
Powered by a Herculean LIT-3 generator, it manages a bit more power than the cheaper Valhalla
made Verdande.

Valkyrie ( Class A - Resource Requirement: 8 )

The Valkyrie is a hybrid sports car, aimed towards a female audience. Its major selling points are
that it is cost efficient while still leaving some room for upgrades. It looks pretty, but is, in
the end, nothing more than a starter car in the street racing syndicate or a present for a some
corporate flunkies daughter.

It features a four cyllinder, Golem hybrid engine, with atmospheric sensors adjusting the
fuel injection and electric output to accomodate for changes in altitude. Automatic doors and
windows come standard.

Gungnir ( Class A - Resource Requirement: 10 )

A top of the line hybrid sports car. It has plenty of speed with solid handling, making this
a car that street racers have wet dreams about. It is a sweet package with plenty of potential,
allowing it to be stream lined towards one style or to be simply upgraded all around.

The Herculean Behemoth V6 engine is a good balance between acceleration and horse-power, though
the fly wheel and most of the transmission are only average, making those the first targets
for the car savvy street racer.

Ragnarok ( Class E - Resource Requirement: 35 )

A heavily armored and armed assault platform featuring advanced targeting systems and a large
variety of weapons ranging from simple ballistics to EMP mines to massive explosives. Many
have been sold to the major corporations, with atleast a dozen confirmed in Daravon's hands.

Layered with Genji Mk. 5 poly-adamanthene armor plating, it is well protected from outside
interference. The base model sports a massive Excalibur class Mk. 20 cannon, two automated
Spectre Mk. 5 machine guns, and a pair of Crossbow Mk. 10 missile systems.

Heimdall ( Class E - Resource Requirement: 30 )

A combination troop transport and scout vehicle, the Heimdall features heavy armor, as well
as advanced detection equipment. These have also made their way into the hands of major
corporations for the easy deployment of their private security teams.

The thick Genji Mk. 15 poly-adamanthene armor plating makes it extremely resilient, but
causes it to have a very low top speed.

Yggdrasil ( Corporate Achievement )

Yggdrasil is an advanced, world wide transportation system that utilizes magnetics and
a prototype form of laser propulsion. The design is similar to a bullet train in an attempt
to make the train more aerodynamic.

The project got off to a rocky start when the initial laser propulsion tests resulted in
damage to both the GMI supplied tracks and the cars themselves. However, after Herculean
ironed out some of the issues it was a great success, greatly reducing transportation costs
due to the surprising efficiency of the system. Only time will tell if the group efforts
of Herculean Arms, Genji Metal Industries, and Valhalla Motors will go down in the books
as visionaries in the realm of transportation.

LSI Vaporum (Speedster) - (Based on the 2003 Aston Martin Vanquish)

- Optional Street version available.

The Vaporum is the luxury sports car for the refined speed demon. Boasting the Herculean Custom Bahamut (equivalent to V8) hybrid engine, this monster has the capability of outrunning most legal vehicles currently in production. Made for speed moreso than comfort, the Vaporum has a smaller body than any other model that LSI produces. Handling is not a problem in this model. Out of all of Luna Sea's designs, the Vaporum is the most customizable with upgrade possibilities in almost every area. Optional upgrade kits are available for this model, as it is the most popular car for the well-to-do young drivers.

The Imbrium is a slightly larger version of the Vaporum, and while in concept, was known as the Vaporum LTD. However, during production a few tweaks were made to make it more affordable while still looking good. Instead of the Behemoth V6, or the Bahamut V8, the 5.0 Nightmare engine was installed. While not offering as much power or speed as the Vaporum, the Imbrium does have superior handling and mileage.

For the individual in a rough neighborhood, the LSI Undarum covers the bases. Formerly available only to law enforcement, the Undarum comes equipped with Adamantoise armor plating and shatterproof windows. Entry is permitted only with a set DNA signature for the vehicle. The tires are top of the line and near puncture-proof.

Optionally, Excalibur class weapons can be attatched for those with offensive driving skills. Engine power is somewhat limited to a Zolom 350 due to the larger size of the vehicle. Interior design isn't all that appealing, but it is efficient in every aspect.

Ophidia Weapons and Machines ( OWM )


Company Logo - A snake with its mouth open, displaying its fangs.

Affiliated heavily with Herculean Arms and Daravon, OWM produces weapons and machines for the
private armies of the corporations as well as any person wealthy enough to purchase them. However,
not all the parts used are top of the line, with corners cut to make production cheaper.

In some cases Daravon electronic parts are swapped for Orlandu Electronics parts, while Herculean
Arms weapons and engines are swapped for Dragoon Military Supply weapons and Choco-Go Industries
engines. This greatly reduces the price but the drop in quality is substantial, leaving most
buyers considering going to more efficient, if more expensive, parts.

Cobra
The Cobra assault vehicle is a light armored and armed jeep aimed more for delivering a small
squad of troops to a position quickly. Generally used in convoys, they would see little use on
an open battlefield.

The engine is a Choco-Go Gold V4 hybrid that provides enough power to get it from point to point,
fully loaded, but has little use otherwise. The stock model features a winch, no armor, and a
Dragoon Mk. 10 belt fed machine gun, fired by some one riding in the rear.

Python
One of OWM's few top of the line productions, the Python assault helicopter is a quality tool
for any corporate army. Quick, durable, and with a large enough payload to make any warmonger
shed a tear.

The stock model comes with Herculean Arms Mk. 5 armor, an underslung Herculean Mk. 10 chain
gun, with 360 degree control for the gunner, and an otherwise empty payload ready to be loaded
up as the owner sees fit.

Anaconda
The Anaconda is the poor corpers military transportation truck. As many corners were cut as
possible while still allowing the vehicle to do it's job.

The Choco-Go Red V6 hybrid engine leaves a fully loaded Anaconda trudging along, making it an
easy target for attacks. With no armor or weapons to speak of, it is used only in convoys and
only to transport equipment or troops, though some owners have been known to turn them into
medical facilities on wheels, for on the go first aid.

Rattler
A cheap scouting vehicle, the Rattler is simply a four-wheel ATV for a single man with enough
room for some high powered sensors and uplink equipment. Surprisingly, it is pretty efficient
for what it does.

The Choco-Go Gold high power electric engine can be charged by an optional solar cell recharge
kit, perfect for the scout with time to spare, or by 'hot charging' from extra energy cells.
For a cheap engine it has high output, powering all the sensors and uplink hardware while still
putting out a decent amount of output for driving. The stock model comes with a Daravon Watch
Dog sensor suite, allowing for thermal detection at a range of up to two miles. It can also
register energy signatures for many presently used military weapons and vehicles, detecting
a full five miles in such a case. The Daravon Insight pulse uplink system relays a data stream
that updates the receiving hardware two hundred times per second in clear weather, down to a low
of thirty times a second in bad weather.

Viper
In an attempt to make a light, fast tank, OWM designed the Viper. While it doesn't sport the
overall firepower of some other tanks, OWM managed a reasonable amount to go with the average
armor and above average speed and maneuverability.

Powered by a Choco-Go Ultra Gold generater, the Viper employs six Choco-Go Gysahl turbine
hover units. The way the units are balanced allows for strafing as well as rotation. The stock
model has Dragoon Mk. 5 layered titanium for defense, and offensive points of a Dragoon Mk. 10
cannon, a single Dragoon Mk. 5 automated machine gun, and a lone Dragoon Mk. 5 missile system.

Diamondback
OWM has created one of the most powerful tanks on the market. The aptly named Diamondback is
both extremely resilient and extremely deadly, but it pays for this by being incredibly slow
and being as wide and as long as two of Valhalla Motors' Ragnarok tanks.

Featuring a state of the art, high pressure stabilizing system, the Diamondback can be ground
securely in preperation for the use of it's most deadly weapon system. The Herculean Arms
Mk. 30 cannon, codenamed Thanatos, fires a depleted uranium shell with enough force to blast
through thirty feet of reinforced titanium. Along with the main gun, it features two Mk. 10
and two Mk. 5 automated machine guns, as well as two Mk. 15 Cockatrice missile systems. The
body of this beast is Genji Mk. 25 layered poly-adamanthene.

Only two Diamondbacks exist, one in the posession of Herculean Arms and the other in the hands
of Daravon.

Further Notes:

Dragoon Military Supply ( DMS )
Company Logo: An oriental style dragon
Dragoon Military Supply offers weapon systems for much lower prices than Herculean Arms.
The quality is questionable, but the prices allow for lowered costs which is sometimes the
order of the day. They somehow manage even with the shadow of Herculean Arms looming overhead.

Choco-Go Industries ( CGI )
Company Logo: A chocobo
A company on it's last legs, CGI has suffered from years of competition with Herculean Arms.
Every attempt has found Choco-Go lowering the quality of their parts in attempts to reduce
production costs so that the sale price can be lowered. Poor management and bad business
sense put the company in a nose dive towards bankruptcy that shows no sign of stopping.

Orlandu Electronics ( OE )
Company Logo: A stylized O and a stylized E
OE was recently bought out by Daravon, though it wasn't dissolved and assimilated. Orlandu
Electronics continues to provide average quality parts at a competitive price allowing
manufacturers to provide cheaper products for those with a bit less spending power. While
rich corporate folk wouldn't be caught dead owning something made from OE parts, any
streetie would be lucky to have it.

 

 

TKisaragi Motors International. (KMI)
