Factory Satellite


  • Government: Zentradi, United Nations
  • Ship Type: Factory Satellite

This automated weapons production factory is several times the size of a Fulbtzs Berrentzs class flagship. The United Nations captured one for its defense buildup in 2011 December, but due to heavy Supervision Army attacks, its production rate had been curtailed sharply.

Normally, a group of 20-50 satellites supplied a Zentradi fleet. Ones that are discovered by immigration fleets are absorbed. A satellite exists that is designed to build fleet motherships in the Orion Arm of the Milky Way galaxy. Satellites for Zentradi soldier cloning also exist.

Satellites are designed for production of standarized weapons, weapons improvements, and have limited capacity for self-repair. Production system changes are possible including VF and Destroid manufacturing for UN Forces, Earth reconstruction materials, and Megaroad class manufacturing.

It is assumed that satellites do not have Folding-devices yet are abundant in resources.
