The Hornet Storm (ホーネットストーム Hōnettosutōmu) is a 1st Generation Capitalist Corporations Object, though it is informally designated as a Generation 1.5.
Powers and Stats
Tier: 8-B with individual lasers, 7-B with focused laser
Name: Hornet Storm
Origin: Heavy Object
Classification: Antipersonnel Large-scale Precision Artillery Weapon for Urban Invasion, 1st Generation Amphibious Object (Informally designed as Generation 1.5)
Powers and Abilities: Flight (Hovers above the ground through an air cushion engine), one hundred secondary antipersonnel laser beam cannons, focusing panels, Advanced Sensors, resistance to heat, radiation, hacking and EMPs
Speed: Subsonic top speed (550 km/h), likely Hypersonic+ reactions (Comparable to other Objects)
Durability: City level (Comparable to other Objects)
Stamina: Unknown, once fuel is put in the JPlevelMHD reactor it doesn't have to be swapped for 5 years, so the practical limit is on things like ammunition and the like
Range: Five kilometers with individual lasers, likely higher with focused laser
Weaknesses: It's likely that after ten kilometers it can no longer achieve city level attack potency with its focused laser
- Laser Beam Cannons: Unlike any other Object, the Hornet Storm was developed to attack large cities. It lacks a main cannon, and it's armed with 100 secondary anti-personnel laser beam cannons. Even if its weapons are known as “small” laser beam cannons, that is in reference to Object-sized weapons. A single shot has the destructive power to easily melt a tank or shoot down a fighter. Each of the 100 cannons can accurately target anything in a five-kilometer range and it can penetrate any obstacle to utterly destroy its target. In a single action, it can accurately and precisely eliminate 100 enemy soldiers. The Hornet Storm is thus capable of being sent into both battlefield and safe countries, and target guerrillas or terrorists trying to use civilian population as a shield.
- Focused Laser: When fighting another Object, the Hornet Storm uses the panels on it back in the shape of peacock feathers to refract and reflect all of its lasers to create a concentrated attack on a single point of the enemy’s armor.
