-====== Yīng Zhǎo Aeroframe ====== 
  
-Yīng Zhǎo, or Eagle Claw, is the First Generation Aeroframe developed to act as a modular fast attack air and space platform. nearly retired, these frames have been handed down to the auxiliary military within the Tai Pan military.  
- 
-===== About the Eagle Claw ===== 
- 
-The Eagle Claw's mission profile is designed to act as combat air patrol, ground attack fighter, and short range scout.  With a modular weapons array, like all Aero Frames, the Eagle Claw can bring the optimal weapons for the mission. 
- 
-==== Key Features ==== 
-High speed, moderate armor and extensive weapon systems are the hallmarks of the Eagle Claw. While capable of use in any environment, including trans orbital, this frame is best used planet-side. Outfitted with a Electronic countermeasure suite and a point defense system, this Frame wins by not getting hit, rather than absorbing the hit head on. With the modular nature of this Frames's weapon arrays, you will find dozens of variants within the same unit, each unique to both the pilot and the mission. 
- 
-===== History ===== 
-While no longer considered a primary weapon platform, the Eagle Claw is still a powerful war machine. Relegated to the tertiary units after the introduction of the more modern battle frames, This first generation combat Aeroframe is still seen in some garrison units as a scout and strike craft. 
- 
-=====Appearance===== 
-Like all war machines in the Tai pan military, the Eagle Claw has an sleek, organic look. with few hard edges, this craft appears to be created from parts of biological creatures upscaled to fit the dimensions of a space fighter.

-===== Onboard Systems Descriptions ===== 
-The onboard systems of the Eagle Claw Aero Frame. 
- 
-==== Hull and Hull Integrated Systems ==== 
-Systems directly pertaining to the chassis and hull, as well as defensive systems. 
- 
-==== Hull and Chassis ==== 
-The Eagle Claw is well defended, with a resilient Energized Tungsten outer armor, and a sturdy internal Skeleton.  
- 
-=== Frame Internal Skeleton === 
-The frame's internal skeleton chassis consists of a foamed aluminum core covered with various composite materials, wrapped in silicon-carbide fibers, and clad in titanium-alloyed steel. 
- 
-=== Energized Tungsten Armor === 
-Energized armor is composed to two separate plates, separated by an insulating material. One of the armor plates holds an enormous electrical charge, while the other acts as a ground. When a penetrator pierces the insulating material, a connection is formed between the charged plate and the grounded plate. This releases the enormous electrical charge through the penetrator, causing it to vaporize instantly. Converted to a heated gas the penetrator becomes effectively harmless. 
- 
-Lower capacitor charges can vaporize pre-heated matter, such as explosive shaped charges and plasma weapons. At higher charges, the discharge can also vaporize solids such as projectiles. Unfortunately, energized armor offers little in defense against energy and mass-less weapons. 
- 
-In an attempt to compensate for this weakness, Blackwell has began manufacturing energized armor with tungsten composites, rather than the usual carbon nano tube style. Tungsten has a higher melting point than any other non-alloy in existence, as well as robust durability on par with that of depleted uranium. By using tungsten composites, energized armor has a much higher resistance to energy weapons than it would otherwise, as well as a healthier defense against projectiles. 
- 
-The end result is known as Energized Tungsten Armor. The relatively low cost of tungsten combined with the simplistic design of energized armor results in a cheap and easy to produce defense superior to other lo-tech armors.  
- 
-==== Life Support ==== 
-The Eagle Claw has a standard life support system, with a pressurized cockpit, oxygen scrubbers, and a temperature-humidity regulation system. The Eagle Claw also has an inertia control system to keep the g-forces on it's pilot to a minimum. 
-==== Power  ==== 
-The power supply for the Eagle Claw Aero Frame. 
- 
-=== Primary Power === 
-Owing to its large size, the Eagle Claw uses a powerful Nuclear fusion reactor, located in its central fuselage, to generate the majority of its power, as well as to generate plasma for propulsion. The Eagle Claw's reactor requires Deuterium-Tritium liquid fuel in order to operate. The Eagle Claw carries enough fuel for six months of operation. 
- 
-=== Secondary Power Sources === 
-As a backup, the Eagle Claw has three Stirling radioisotope generators (SRG), which in normal use supply backup power to the frame's electronics. During an emergency, the SRGs can be used to power the entirety of the frame for a short time, though there is not enough power for lengthy combat operations. 
- 
-===Plasma Conduit/Cooling System=== 
-In order to transfer the plasma and power from the nuclear reactor to weapons and auxiliary thrusters, the Eagle Claw has a series of Plasma Conduits which transfer plasma and coolant from the nuclear fusion to the Frame's systems, as well as smaller auxiliary thrusters which line the top and bottom of the frame's wings. The parallel coolant conduits help regulate the temperature of the overall chassis as well as the fusion reactor during peak performance, such as in battle. 
- 
-==== Electronics and Control Systems ==== 
- 
-The Eagle Claw uses an On-board AI systems suite to assist the pilot, easing his workload and making him/her much more effective in combat. 
- 
-=== Computing === 
-The heart of the On-board AI suite is an extremely advanced quantum computer, capable of performing nearly endless amounts of data-churning and possessing untold memory. Quantum computers, unlike old computers which could only process 1 and 0, can process an effectively infinite range of digits. The Eagle Claw's computer is located in an armored box, just below the cockpit seat. 
- 
-=== Sensors === 
-The On-board AI suite has sensors which, in passive mode, can detect things up to 100 miles away, and in active mode can detect and provide information (Heading, velocity, size, ship type, energy signatures)on objects up to 55 miles away. All of the Eagle Claw sensors are located inside the frame's main cockpit housing with secondary optics on both sides of the cockpit, in the fuselage, and wings. The Eagle Claw has a variety of sensors including: 
-  * Electromagnetic sensors  
-  * Neutrino sensors (nuclear reaction sensors) 
-  * Visual sensors 
-  * Mass Detectors 
- 
-=== Targeting control === 
-The On-board AI Suite has a targeting control system that can give detailed information (Heading, velocity, size, vehicle type, and energy signatures) on ten targets, as well as position and orientation (IFF) on up to 25 more targets. 
- 
- 
-==== Communications ==== 
- 
-=== Laser === 
-For close-range transmissions, it is more difficult for the enemy to intercept, because they have to be in the area of the beam. Also limited to light-speed. 
- 
-=== Radio === 
-Full spectrum, Dual-Modulation, range theoretically unlimited except by interference. Practical range is short, since the waves only travel at light-speed.  
- 
- 
-==== Control Systems ==== 
-The Frame uses a Mind-Machine interface control system, linking the pilot up to the Frame directly. Interface is achieved when the pilot dons the specialized helmet. The mind-machine interface is a step above manual controls, and allows for pilots transferring to the new frame to have a shorter time to synchronize with it. The Interface also gives the frame faster movement and quicker reactions times. 
- 
-===Stability and Movement Management System === 
-Another  design feature of the Frame is the SMM System. The heart of the SMM System is a large gyroscope located in the lower center of the Frame' torso. The gyroscope serves to keep the Frame steady during aiming,  movement, and maneuvering.
