About Us
NOVA is a paramilitary organization that operates in the grey zone where nations, government bodies, and corporations like Hawkeye and GSO cannot step in. If there is a contract to be fulfilled, NOVA will be there.
From neutralizing just 1 problematic individual, providing a defensive garrison for a nation/state/institution, up to star system scale conquest, NOVA will not back down as long as the contract is legitimate and honored by all parties involved.


Chain of Command

Doctrine

1. Strategic
Our strategic doctrine is centered in garrison fleet and defensive fortifications, as such, we will deploy a garrison force in proportion to the corresponding contract. Every aspect of the contract will be considered from political, cultural, economic and security standpoint to provide the most efficient and reliable defensive force.

2. Tactical
NOVA battle tactics relies on the synergy of every military asset available at the scene. For every trooper on the ground, there will be air support and orbital strikes provided by the fleet in orbit.
For clandestine missions, we will deploy a surgical strike team to infiltrate and eliminate the objective, this will rely heavily on our Trooper Corp.
As for open conflicts involving an entire star system, our primary directive is to establish orbital dominance, and systematically secure every planetary bodies in the system, effectively cutting off the opposition's supply and escape route. This will rely heavily on our Lancer Corp and their battlegroups. After orbital dominance has been established, we will start to deploy inquisition armies to the planet surface. NOVA Inquisitors will eliminate hostile fortifications and infrastructure to ensure swift and unconditional surrender, while also performing counter-insurgency to stamp out any potential opposition.


Diplomacy
As an interstellar mercenary faction, NOVA does not hold ownership over any sectors/territory. Instead, every nation/state/institution that has an active defense contract with NOVA are all sheltered under the "NOVA Protectorate", the security of which is guaranteed by the entire NOVA faction.
The use of space (both on the surface and in orbit) and the exploitation of resources under the NOVA Protectorate are to be discussed with the corresponding local authority, these includes but are not limited to:
  • Bunkers, Forts, and other defensive fortifications
  • Factories, Hangars, and Shipyards
  • Mining and Refinery facilities
  • Laboratories, Academies, and other R&D facilities


Technologies
To further strengthen our defensive capabilities and maintain dominance over our potential enemies, we have been developing our own Mod Pack.
Hawkeye as the biggest military distributor in the galaxy has proven to be a reliable partner for delivering NOVA technologies. From hiring troopers, to acquiring bleeding edge weapon systems from NOVA Arsenal, it can all be done from the Hawkeye fabricator


Recruitment Policy
Everyone is welcome to join the NOVA faction regardless of species, gender, or political views. The only requirement is to provide contribution to our faction by submitting a tech design, either by snapshots or steam workshop links to this thread, and describe the role it will play on the battlefield. If your design is accepted, you will be given the rank of Knight emblem.png (Knight/Captain), as per your choice to join either the Trooper Corp, Lancer Crop, or Aux Corp.
You can climb the ranks of NOVA by getting recommendations from a superior officer. For example, since there are currently no members with Admiral/Inquisitor rank, Rear Admiral Yuuki can only get recommendation for a promotion from one of the NOVA Imperators, but Captains or Knights can get recommendations from him to get promoted.

alright, now that i've finished indexing the old stuff from the old thread, let's add some new stuff

"N. S. N. Asmodeus Charon"
285920_20211129161110_1.png285920_20211129161140_1.png285920_20211129161210_1.png

Model : DMS-AMC-1A
Manufacturer : Darvenstein Military Shipyard
Displacement : 13085.17 metric tonnes
Length : 64 Blocks
Height : 33 Blocks
Width : 47 Blocks
Top Speed : 50 Knots
Role : Assault Ship; Infantry Support; Anti-Ship; Anti-Air;


The Charon which was formerly a Deliverance Class Guided Missile Cruiser, has been retrofitted to accommodate trooper deployment. The lower deck of the Charon has been stripped from its cruise missiles to provide drop points for 2 full Squads of Hover Troopers (and room for more), granting it the Assault Missile Cruiser sub-class. As an assault missile cruiser, N.S.N. Charon and its sister ships will deploy troopers to the front line and provide fire support for them, creating a safe beachhead for further friendly forces to join the fight

STC-50 "Storm Cloud" D-1A
285920_20211129161723_1.png
285920_20211129161714_1.png


The 1A variant of Storm Cloud D retains the armaments of its regular counterpart, with the addition of disposable fuselage floor and drop points for 2 Squads of Hover Troopers. With the capability of both a gunship and a dropship, it can deploy troopers from a safe altitude and provide close air support without calling in another gunship to the local airspace

Hi Darvin. This is my submission to join NOVA.

Introducing, the TA A-1 Nightingale Multi-role Fighter Bomber
TA A1 Nightingale.png
Max Speed: 115 mph
Wing Span: 15 blocks
Weight: 223.20 kg
Weapons: 1 HE Machine Gun, 1 C-500 Pulse Cannon, 4 RP-100 Rapid Pulse Cannons, 2 L-30A Un-guided Rocket Launchers, 2 L-34 Heat Seeker Rocket Launchers, 4 HE 20 mm SLINGER AA guns, 2 HE Seeker Missile Pods, 1 Avalanche Launcher, and 3 HE Cruise Missiles
Batteries: 9 HE Ion Batteries, 1 GSO Small Battery Cell
Shielding: 2 HE HAVOC shields
Repair: 2 GSO Repair Bubble Projectors, 5 VEN Repair Bubble Projectors
Roles: Ground attack, air superiority, tactical bombing, STOL interceptor, heavy fighter
Description: Is it a bird, is it a plane, is it a FLYING BRICK OF GUNS AND WINGS? YES! This is the TA A-1 Nightingale, a versatile fighter bomber capable of soaking up multitudes of damage. With its innovative wing placements, the brick is capable of STOL, or Short Take-Off and Landing. It is loaded out with state-of-the-art weapon systems kindly provided by Blackwing and other sources. It is covered by overlapping repair bubbles and enjoys a complement of anti-fighter AA guns and an avalanche missile for those pesky light fighters that get under its shields. The nightingale is also a very low-skill fighter, making it comfortable for newer players to dominate the skies while still allowing veteran players to easily use this design to wreck others faster than a yo mama joke. This design also has decent battery power and speed, making it reliable and durable in combat. There are also many things that you can modify to suit your needs like adjustment thrusters instead of batteries, lighter batteries, and different missiles. A secondary role of the nightingale is ground attack/air support, as the sheer amount of missiles and cannons can blast holes in any fortification or armored vehicle.

MODS REQUIRED: Nova, Blackwing, AA Guns, Semi-Permanent Fuel Tanks, Nuterra Steam, Fuel Regen Mod (not needed, but preferred.), and Harmony(Again, not needed unless you have the Fuel Regen Mod.)

Well then, I welcome you into our ranks, Captain Anonymous. I encourage you to keep creating techs designs for NOVA and climb through the ranks

I recommend to make your own Battlegroup containing 5 to 8 large vessels/ships, then I will promote you to Master Knight emblem.png Commodore myself (like this, or this for example)

@Matt would you give him the banner? thanks

in other news, im working on 40mm point defense cannons, bigger caliber and more expensive than phalanx but does the same thing. We can equip several of these on our ships to form a defensive grid against missiles, debris, and other incoming threat
