An Aerospace Vessel is a flying Vehicle.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Aircraft[edit]

Heavier-than-Air craft generating lift from Wings or Propulsion

Airship[edit]

Lighter-than-Air craft generating lift from the natural buoyancy of light gasses

Grav Vehicle[edit]

Heavier-than-Air craft generating lift by the use of artificial-gravity or contra-gravity technologies. These could be considered Aircraft but become so widespread that they form their own category. Many Spaceplanes, Spaceships and Starships are large forms of Grav Vehicles. The largest of these Vehicles are the size of planetoids, with smaller examples including floating cities and palaces. In general however, these larger examples fall outside any reasonable definition of Vehicle!

Spaceplane[edit]

Aircraft or Grav Vehicles designed to operate in an Atmosphere and a Vacuum. These will be capable of reaching orbital velocity from a planet and undertaking re-entry to the planet's atmosphere.

Spaceship (NAFAL)[edit]

Aircraft or Grav Vehicles designed to operate in a Vacuum, but not capable of FTL movement.

Starship (FTL)[edit]

Aircraft or Grav Vehicles designed to operate in a Vacuum, and capable of FTL movement.

Image Repository[edit]
