Welcome back to the military of Nyphilis United recruitment and information center! I’m sure it has been a long time since you have heard of the Nyphilian army, and some of the newer n00bs may have never even heard of it. While [s]pedonuker[/s] PandoraNuker has been gone for a while, the army of Nyphilis has continued to grow and expand its ranks. Let me show you the new developments.
The biggest advancement in the Nyphilian army is the construction of the first SHIP, the S.S Midgetman.
Staring down the Midgetman’s size 11 main cannon.
The bridge. Main deck is in the middle floor, while the engineering, shields, bunks, etc are in the lower grey deck.
The crew that mans the Midgetman. From left to right: captain, lieutenant, 2 bridge operators, and the gunner.
Also part of the ship’s crew is the Nyphilian Star Marines, the section of the army devoted to being the ships’ security forces and boarding parties.
Also new to the army are the desert commandos, specialized units trained for desert operations.
While they cameoed in the “Immortal’s Worst Nightmare” forum battle fiasco, the Nyphilian jungle corps has never gotten a proper appearance. Here they are.
The jetpack corps is a relatively new addition to the army. With slightly thicker armor and heavier weaponry, they can do a lot more damage than the regular infantry.
The medic was featured but never properly introduced in my first army update.
While the Phoenix fighters were cameoed as a civilian spacecraft in the aforementioned forum battle, they have never been introduced. The Nyphilian army realized the need for a small, portable, compact fighter jet that could pack a punch, and so production for this fighter was commissioned. It has proven its reliability and mettle in countless battles.
The Pegasus tilt rotor helicopter was an ad-hoc correction to fill a donut hole the military had: a small transport vehicle. While the shuttles could bring troops from star to star and from a planet’s continent to continent, it proved bulky and ineffective in dropping off small numbers of troops during battle. So the Pegasus was designed with mainly transport in mind, carrying two soldiers and a pilot.
While the original Nyphilian shuttle was designed as a dropship/gunship, concerns grew as the immortal, peach, triangulist, and dimmy threats grew ever closer, so the shuttle was also then purposed as a bomber. This is the standard bomb payload for a shuttle now. Talk about a bunker-buster!
Overall, I hope that we at the MNU have helped you express desire to join our amazing military. For the motherland of Nyphilis, we fight!
