Vehicles - Military, Earth Union

America-class heavy spacecraft carrier - A sixth generation warship introduced late in the Sheol War, it supported an aviation element twice the size of the earlier light carriers and hosted a special joint task force with representation from all four branches of service.
BA-194 Mustang - The standard light armored transport, it can carry four troops in addition to a three-man crew.
BMP-202 Toro - An Infantry Fighting Vehicle, it is equipped with an eight-missile battery and a light particle cannon and is capable of carrying eight troops in addition to a four-man crew.
Ica-64D Security Sparrow - A variant of the Quick Sparrow designed for the transfer of prisoners, it features seating similar to the Combat Sparrow with some modifications to accommodate prisoner restraints. A cage separates the passenger section from the cabin and there are additional seats between the cage and the cabin for two guards.
Ica-69B Rescue Pelican - A variant of the Pelican-class cargo ship designed for search and rescue, it includes a full medical team for emergency care of rescuees and a sealed ICU with eight beds.
Imperium-class space flagship - The largest capital ship in Union Fleet, this fourth generation warship heads the Navy's 4th, 5th and 6th Fleets. Beginning in NE 105, the three active Imperium-class flagships were refitted with fifth generation technology to improve performance and to support an airwing comparable to that of a carrier. Unlike proper carriers, however, they are not intended for an expeditionary role and instead serve as part of their planetary sphere's last line of defense.
IMR-189 Tejon - An engineer vehicle featuring a modular system that allows it to adapt to tasks ranging from construction to EOD.
IT-8 Wakizashi - A second generation air/space strike fighter used by both the Navy and the Air Force, it is the only superlight craft capable of providing air support to ground forces from space-based platforms.
Murakumo-class space cruiser - A third generation warship, it was in the process of being cycled into the Reserve at the start of the Sheol War, but some remained on active duty throughout the war. They were notable for being the capital ships of the Space Forces until the debut of the Imperium-class and for being equipped with three of the powerful Mark III laser arrays.

Vehicles - Military, Sheol Empire

Anaconda - A heavy space fighter nearly as well-armed as the Fiend-class patrol escorts, it posed a considerable threat to Union warships.
Archdemon-class spacecraft carrier - The platform for the Sheolites' superlight spacecraft, it was also a capable warship in its own right even without the support of escorts.
Archfiend-class space destroyer - Though disadvantaged when compared to its Union counterparts, this class of warship was equipped with the dreaded mass drivers used to devastating effect in the Sheolite raids on the Colonies.
Cobra - A medium space fighter that boasted thicker armor and heavier armaments than the Viper, it had a reputation for being notoriously difficult to shoot down and was believed to be the craft most responsible for losses among Union pilots.
Demon-class space cruiser - Despite not being significantly larger than the Archfiend-class, this warship boasted considerably heavier armaments, making it a significant threat in both ship-to-ship combat and orbital assaults.
Fiend-class space patrol escort - The smallest class of Sheolite warship, it was about evenly matched with the Union Starstorm-class.
Hellduke-class space dreadnought - The flagship of the main Sheolite fleets, it is larger than all Union warships except the Imperium-class.
Viper - A light space fighter comparably equipped to the Koh-132 Wasp, its trump card was its disruptor cannon, which could nullify its target's shields but often at the risk of shorting out the craft's systems.

Vehicles - Military, The Empyrean

Angel-class light space cruiser - The backbone of the Empyrean Navy, it is the main combatant of both the expeditionary fleets and the orbital guard fleets.
Archangel-class heavy space cruiser - The flagship of the Empyrean's expeditionary fleets, it is about the size of a Union Sparta-class carrier and its primary weapon is a devastating heavy laser array.
Confessor - A light attack drone armed with a single laser array, it is small and fragile but relies on sheer numbers to pose a threat.
Dominion-class space destroyer - A warship that comprises most of the expeditionary fleets' numbers, it is surprisingly weak and poorly armed for its size and serves more to distract enemies from the more valuable Angels and Archangels.
Innocent - A heavy attack drone, its medium laser array gives it the capacity to pose a threat to warships, but its offensive power is offset by its comparatively low speed and inferior maneuverability.
Martyr - A medium attack drone that often leads formations of the smaller Confessors, its three laser arrays pose a significant threat to Union superlights.
