Nephele Flying Platform and 3rd Nocticentian Armoured Recovery Regiment – flyers and pilots for Only War


Nephele Flying Platform
The Nephele is a simple large flat flying platform, steered from an open console and kept aloft and propelled by a multitude of lift engines on its underside and along its edges. Like many imperial vehicle the Nephele is a sturdy and versatile design with a lot of different local patterns and variations. Especially its engines can range from simple fans or jets to plasma drives and relic anti-grav units without compromising the core design. The key to this is the Nephele’s advanced mechanical cogitatator at the heart of the complex network of individual motors, and indeed tech adepts use the presence and state of this cogitator unit to determine whether a vehicle truly classifies as a Nephele and whether a specific pattern is deemed acceptable or corrupted.
