  • Onboard Vehicles:
    • APC, “RUMBLER/SUSIE B. HOMEWRECKER” (5 T) Piloted by ‘Charango’, this Armored Personnel Carrier is rated against small arms, and equipped with a pintle-mounted .50 caliber machine gun. Can comfortably hold eight passengers, not including the pilot and gunner. Can provide 12 hours of oxygen for ten passengers, and can be deployed via the ship’s boat.
    • Ship’s boat, PERCHERON STO-35 (30 T) Piloted by ‘Overcheck’, this well worn example of a classic Surface To Orbit transport dates back to the original purchase of the Osprey. Its durability is as impressive as it is obvious. (Skyler will add detail if he can get some ship information. Percheron is a breed of Draft horse, and the Overcheck is a loop that goes around the horse’s tail to keep the harness in place).
    • Fighter, “ZEPHYR” (10 T). Piloted by “Fireball.” An unimpressive scout fighter mounted externally.Not intended for serous combat, but equipped with a pulse laser and a respectable sensor package. Small enough to evade civilian sensor sweeps, but will explode immediately if exposed to enemy fire.

      Current Morale: Very high

History: After a complicated series of investments, trades, and mercenary gigs, Captain Myoko earned enough to purchase the Mendicant (then known as the Osprey) outright. At the time, the ship was the state of the art, and Myoko used it to safeguard the fledgling FMC. As time progressed, the Mendicant lost its technological edge, but it had served its purpose. The FMC was established as a sovereign power in the Alpha Centauri system, and the old warship enjoyed a graceful retirement of system patrols and routine interceptions.
