Xepelin (Casual Response Attack Ship)


Silent and flying at low altitude – the Xepelin became the “dream killer” feared by all (including the crew and pilots). Usually navigated by captains specially chosen for their own personal death wish, who then rode in the ‘king seat’ fixed at the very top of the navigation mast. Here he would be exposed to the elements and oncoming enemy fire.

Propelled by a central hanging puff-puff plasma cannon. These engines remained throughout the Z-class series regardless of the accidental cremations they bestowed upon service engineers when “someone pressed the wrong button”. The dual nature of propulsion and weapon of immense destruction provided by the cannon was simply too good a marriage to discard in favour of safer but less efficient devices.
