Topic: IMS Grenadier's Daughter

Down in bay 44c sat a ship. A Black ship with 4 engine nacelles, two in front two in back, a two person cockpit and a general bad attitude. Grenadier's daughter was a form of militia ship common out in the rim. Reasonably armed an armored, though Casey Grant had made some modifications to her after well... He'd killed the last owner.

The most noticeable thing about her was the name stenciled onto the hull and the pinup of the woman in what looked like ancient fatigues draped in grenades and not much else.

Casey turned around and waved to the ship.

"There she is" He said with pride

Louisa looked at the ship ahead of her and thought briefly.

"What's the weaponry on that thing? The ship may shoot back", she asked, "Also, why have you got a pin-up on the outside of the ship? I stick mine on the inside why I can actually see it..."

"Got one on the inside too" Casey grinned back as he pulled up a datapad.

"Ships got point defense lasers for defense and a pair of rail turrets, a "Sunday Punch" up front and 2 racks of 24 missiles underneath the forward wings. She'll do the work you need her to"

"It is an historic thing," Pavel said to Louisa's comment. "Many centuries ago, pilots would decorate their craft with such pictures. I do not know why."

"As for my earlier comment about Germans and Russians, it is from an old joke. My people came from a place called Poland. It was always invaded by these Germans and Russians. So the joke goes, 'Why do Poles kill Germans before Russians?" He paused, knowing no one but him would understand.

"Business before pleasure." He smiled a thin smile.

Re: IMS Grenadier's Daughter

Louisa looked confused at this.

"I don't get it", she says, "I'm more a slapstick kind of girl anyway".

Re: IMS Grenadier's Daughter

"Of course," Pavel replied. "Humor is a cultural thing. I still do not understand the Volkov-Rusi guard and four turtles joke they tell on Argentine, but they think it is hilarious."

He looked to the pilot. "So, shall we board?"

- Pavel waxing sociological

Re: IMS Grenadier's Daughter

"Yeah" Casey said as he pressed a few buttons and the rear cargo ramp lowered, revealing a vehicle just as utilitarian on the inside as it was outside, though the seats looked comfortable.

"go on in. Stay out of the cockpit though"

Re: IMS Grenadier's Daughter

"Why should we stay out of the cockpit?" Louisa asked as she walked into the rear of the ship, heading precisely in that direction, "Do you have fluffy dice?"

She was in a somewhat more chipper mood now she had a working ship to use.

Re: IMS Grenadier's Daughter

"Because I asked you to" Casey said as Nova clambered her way in, taking a seat with all of her equipment.

"Also because the ship is equipped with anti theft, and the cockpit is locked, and I don't want your nutty ass in their. So sit in the back like the rest of the grunts" He added as he climbed the ramp.
