Archangel-Class SDV

DFS-3C ARCHANGEL-CLASS SPACE DOMINANCE VEHICLE (TL10)

The Columbia Aerospace Archangel is the fastest SDV in the USAF and, with its antimatter pulse drive, one of the most advanced in service anywhere in the solar system. An upgrade of the earlier Angel, its hull is a 375-foot-long unstreamlined cylinder (SM +11) dotted with AKV bays and laser towers.
