VHF-1 Fighter
Plural: VHF-1 Fighters
The Velocitech Harrier Fighter (commonly known as the Veritas fighter) is a futuristic technological marvel--today! The only down side is that it continually emits an irritating high-pitched tone when in operation--something about a very high frequency leakage. Otherwise, this miniaturized, single-seater fighter plane is snazzy enough to send even the most jaded of maverick top guns into a dreamy tailspin over the chance to fly it.

How Obtained

Other Uses

  • When equipped, adds a "Use an item" option in combat, "Call in an airstike"
  • First five times a day:
You press a secret combination of buttons on your watch, summoning your VHF-1 Fighter. A few seconds later it zips overhead on remote control and drops a load of armament on your opponent. Your opponent takes X + X damage.
  • After five uses:
You've already called in five air strikes today, and that's all the armaments your plane has. It's not going to work again until you can get more tomorrow.
  • +2-4 PP per turn

Notes

  • X equals 30% of the opponent's remaining hit points with a minimum of 12.
  • Equipping this requires Passable Pilot.
