If a moderator could pin this thread, I'd be thankful. Very Happy


Background

The need for defense has existed forever.  Imagined in 2430 and founded in 2455, STAR FORCE existed as little more than phaser training for Star Fleet officers.

Always the Federation's unfavored child, it took the rise of a new corporate power to build STAR FORCE the respectable military force it has now.  In 2500, as part of Fleet Captain Talmid's addition to the Federation Defense Act, Talmidian Starship Industries officially endorsed the renamed Star Force.


Major Contributors

TSI / Talmidian Starship Industries

Fleet Captain Talmid's personal building company has always given Star Force a helping hand.  Prior to the Federation Defense Act, when Star Force could not afford contracting more than a few jobs out of the big, expensive companies like United Star Fighters Incorporated, Talmidian Starship Industries was able to provide Star Force with some light plane and tank frames.  Currently the greatest assets Talmidian Starship Industries has to give Star Force are guns and money.


USFI / United Star Fighters Incorporated

Star Force's line of successful aerospace craft began with the machines of United Star Fighters Incorporated.  Few companies could contend with the quality presented in the flying machines of United Star Fighters Incorporated - that's why Star Force contracted them.


HPC / HPC Airframe Industries

HPC is a smaller company that builds various odd aerospace craft.  Star Force has presented them with some orders outside of United Star Fighters Inc.'s range, for example armored personnel carriers, transports, and couriers.  HPC has even attempted some light fighters and a bomber, but their designs are typically more radical than they are effective.


MU / Mechanion Union

Mechanion Union is Star Force's go-to for all-terrain walkers.  The small company has provided Star Force with only six designs so far, and only two since Talmidian Starship Industries commissioned them, but the originals' rugged effectiveness at just about any role keeps the old models popular to this day.


MTI / Mersann Tank Industries

Mersann Tank Industries builds some light tanks which Star Force has bought and added to its army.


Naming and Standardization

There are two generations to Star Force equipment.  Pre-2500, 25th Century equipment is part of Star Force's Generation O.  Post-2500, 26th Century equipment is part of Star Force's Generation P.  The letter "O" will appear in Star Force's standardized naming system denoting Generation O craft.  For example, for aerospace craft:

F-O23 TSI Star Stalker Class Fighter
A-O13 TSI Scarab Class Attack Fighter

To fully understand the naming system, it is necessary to study the equation which I will shamelessly rip off from Mightyman.  The equation is as follows:

X-YZAb ~Manufacturer~ ~Make~

X is the type of vehicle:
T = Trainer
F = Fighter
A = Attack Fighter
B = Bomber
G = Gunship
TR = Transport
BC = Experimental
D = Drone

The rest of the name is then expounded based on the time and date of the craft's creation.

Y is the generation of vehicle:
O = Generation O, pre-2500

The first digit will be 1 through 9 on all Generation P vehicles.  Typically the smaller the number the older the plane is, the bigger the number the newer the plane is.  For example:

F-O41a USFI Supreme Class Fighter <- Generation O vehicle
T-149 USFI Swallow Class Trainer <- Old Generation P vehicle
F-585c USFI Freesprite Class Heavy Interceptor <- New Generation P vehicle

ZA is seemingly random aircraft identification.

Lastly, lowercase b is a variant or incarnation of the vehicle.  When multiple variations or incarnations are produced, the first incarnation is retroactively given an "a" at the end of its name.  for example:

F-114a USFI Star Falcon Class Fighter
F-114b USFI Star Falcon II Class Fighter
F-514e USFI Star Falcon V Mark II Class Fighter


The ground vehicle naming system is inconsistent with the aerospace vehicle naming system.   The ground vehicle equation is as follows: MXZ-Yabc ~Manufacturer~ ~Make~

M is always M.  It means ground vehicle.

XZ can be two or three or however many digits, it is a code that refers to the type of ground vehicle:

MTR - Walker mech
MT - Light armored vehicle
MF - Heavy armored vehicle
MN - Heavily armored vehicle

Y will either be O for Generation O vehicles, or if just won't be there.  For example:

MT-O31 TSI Jaguar Class Light Tank
MF-O38 TSI Nishigaki Class Heavy Tank
as opposed to
MF-205 TSI Savage Class Armored Fighting Vehicle <- No "O"
MTR-05 MU Twilight Class Bombardment Mech

"abc" is identification, it can be any amount of digits.

With that out of the way, we move forwards.
