The Esperia Prowler is a modernized version of the infamous Tevarin armored personnel carrier. It is named after the UPE military designation. Esperia’s astroengineers were given unmitigated access to study original versions of the ship recently discovered in the Kabal system to help meticulously reconstruct the vehicle. Now, the Prowler is the perfect fusion of two cultures: the elegance and effectiveness of the Tevarin war machine combined with the reliability of modern Human technology.[1]

Features

Hardened shell

Both the pilot and co-pilot cockpit shield is constructed of kelsun composite utilizing original Tervarin engineering techniques. A process that created the most resilient transparent shielding of that era, a byproduct of the process gave the exterior an opaque coating while still allowing the operator to see out.[2]

Ground runners

Another feature of the Prowler is it's focused gravity emitters that are positioned underneath the Prowler, which creates a cushion to allow it to navigate precarious and uneven surfaces such as landscapes or even ship hulls to avoid scans.[2]

Transforming mechanics

The twin nacelle wings of the Prowler houses a pair of low emission thrusters designed to minimize the ship's energy signature profile for a stealthier approach. These wings will also rotate, allowing more maneuvering capabilities in flight, but also double as the ship's landing gear.[2]

Precision offense

A remote turret is placed along the upper spine of the ship, it can be controlled by either the pilot or co-pilot, offering 360 degree weapon coverage against hostile forces.[2]

Rapid Deployment

For the deployment of combat personnel, the Prowley has four Deployment Portals along each side of the hull. These portals are outfitted with an airshield meaning that they can be open during flight in atmosphere or in deep space. Each of these portals is outfitted with a dedicated power supply to guarantee that the airshields will stay online.[2] However, losing your airshields while in space would have the same effect as a hull decompression event. The cockpits won't be affected as they are sealed from the rest of the ship. [3]

Each station is outfitted with a safety harness to secure soldiers into their position while in transit.

History

Discovery

With the recent discovery of the lost Tevarin planet in the Kabal System, Esperia’s engineers were given unmitigated access to examine the preserved ships found in several of the caches, before meticulously recreating the design choices. The Prowler’s effectiveness as a rapid personnel deployment vehicle was mainly due to its silence. The boarding was constructed using a variety of techniques to minimize its signatures and get close to unsuspecting vessels before quickly deploying their boarders via EVA.[4][2]

Modernization

With the updated Prowler model, you will find the perfect fusion of two culture: the elegance and effectiveness of the Tevarin war machine combined with the reliability of modern Human technology.[4][2]
