The GVF Ptah


Description:

FS2 Tech Room Description

The stealth prototype GVF Ptah was a top-secret development project assigned to Vasudan conglomerate Akheton Corp. Designed to be invisible to standard detection arrays mounted on combat craft, Ptahs have performed admirably during their OpEval period. The masking materials and blending technologies used across their outer surfaces seem to confuse Shivan detection systems as well. The Ptah is currently available only to select fighter units in the Vasudan navy, with no word on when they will be more widely distributed.

Statistically identical to the GTF Pegasus, only 2 meters shorter and somwhat thicker, this is more of a recon craft than a fighter; don't get in any big dogfights in this ship. It maneuvers like a dream, even better than the GVF Serapis, but its weak defenses and limited secondary capacity play against it. It cannot be targeted unless there is an AWACS vessel nearby, allowing it to do things like scanning a Sathanas, covertly.


This ship is a piece of ****! If the vasudans had done a joint terran/vasudan stealth fighter project like they did with the ullyses the result would have been somthing far better than this.


It is statistically identical to the Pegasus, but is actually worse. Its target profile is much bigger than that of the Pegasus. Rather than being a razor thin triangle, the Ptah is more of a scrunched up snail. The snail is compact, but is not as difficult to hit as the Pegasus. In addition, it is not as hard to see as the Pegasus in space or nebula environments.


Name origin

In Egyptian mythology, Ptah was a deity that called the world into being. His name means opener of the mouth.
