PHR Helios / Aether Jetskimmer (2)
The Helios is a high speed attack unit, designed primarily to hunt down enemy aircraft. While somewhat less manoeuvrable than the true skimmers employed by the Shaltari and the Scourge, it can still use its speed to great effect in battle. It is armed only with the RXs-5 ‘Galaxy’ multi-rocket launcher. For what this weapon lacks in power, it more than makes up for in terrific rate of fire, where the sheer quantity of shape charge munitions can even pose a threat to enemy armour.
Rules for this unit can be found in Reconquest: Phase 1
The Aether is a highly advanced jetskimmer type unit based on the standard Helios chassis. While the Helios is aggressive and flexible, the Aether is best used carefully and from a concealed position, where its indirect fire capability can hide it from return fire. It employs Black Nanomachine Hives similar to those on the Type-4 Hades walker, an insidious weapon capable of enveloping heavily armoured foes in a seething cloud of eroding death.
This weapon is designed for the anti-armour role only, making the Aether a highly focused unit of consummate ability in cramped urban environments. The hapless target may never see the virtually silent, gliding killer unleashing death from the shadows.
