Ground Vehicles

Jackalope-4 All-Terrain Vehicle
Capabilities: The Jackalope-4 is a light-weight, fast all-terrain vehicle comfortably reaching speeds of around 100 mph on a gravel road (speed is slower off-road). The frame of the EO-4 is not built to take much punishment from ordinance but can deal with off-road travel well. The EO-4 does not come with any armament but can easily be fitted with a weapons platform.

The EO-4 is built for reconnaissance and sneak attack purposes. It can transport up to 8 soldiers and equipment behind enemy lines very quickly and can make it through some territory much faster than a tank. The EO-4 is not the best off-road military truck out there but it is also far cheaper than most similar vehicles. Our target audience is smaller nations (up to 50 million population) and nations that do not want to spend too much on their military.
The Jackalope-4 Costs $100,000

Jackalope-5 All-Terrain Vehicle
The Jackalope-5 is the newest generation in a line of military all-terrain vehicles developed by the Edolian Arms Corporation in conjunction with the Edolian Army. Unlike previous models, the Jackalope-5 is not built for a developing military audience. It is designed to be one of the best military all-terrain vehicles on the market. Its main advantage is its versatility: It can be outfitted to do a number of different tasks (see below) and it is a vital part of any sophisticated army. Built on a similar frame as the Jackalope-4, the Jackalope-5 boasts improved suspension to better protect the equipment within the vehicle from the hard bounces that come from moving quickly through rough terrain.

The Jackalope-5 can handle almost any terrain with its heavy tires and powerful engine. On a decent road, it can manage speeds up to 100 miles per hour but is somewhat slower on rougher ground. It is not built to go into heavy combat and provides little protection to troops inside, however with modifications; it can perform very well in combat situations. The Jackalope-5 has a special compartment in the front of the vehicle that can be used as a base for a number of different electronic systems (see below for a full list). An M-60 machine gun is mounted

The Jackalope-5 is designed to do a number of different roles including troop deployment, scout, air support, landmine detection and elimination, landmine deployment and serve as a weapons platform. Able to carry 9 crew members (including one driver), the Jackalope-5 is most often used to deploy special troops quickly and easily into battle. It can allow an army to put troops in places the enemy does not expect them. The Jackalope-5 can be equipped with a Integral Digital Topography Radar (IDTR) to map out terrain ahead of the Jackalope-5 so that advancing troops would be able to use the features of the land to their advantage. It can also be equipped with a SAMMCS system, allowing to accompany planes and help them detect enemy SAM batteries. We also sell equipment allowing the Jackalope-5 to be converted into a mine-layer itself. (See below for details of all equipment). Finally, with just a little modification, the Jackalope-5 can be used as a strike jeep. Because it lacks the armor of many other military vehicles, it could not take tanks head on but its great speed makes it perfect for guerrilla strikes. By attaching a few plates of metal onto the frame (not manufactured by Edolian Arms but easily manufactured) the Jackalope-5 can take small-arms fire with little reduction in performance. Troops carrying machine guns and/or rocket launchers can then use the Jackalope-5 as an extremely fast moving combat vehicle. An optimal number of troops inside the Jackalope-5 for the attack role is 5 (including the driver).
The basic Jackalope-5 costs $200,000.

Besides the basic Jackalope-5, equipment can also be purchased and installed separately into the vehicle. The equipment is purchased separately from the main vehicles and can be easily and quickly installed, taken out and changed.

Integral Digital Topography Radar (IDTR)
The IDTR utilizes complex radar systems to map out the contours of the terrain. By installing the IDTR, the EO-5 becomes an ideal reconnaissance vehicle and it much more difficult to detect and destroy than an aerial craft.

Surface-To-Air Missile Counterfire System (SAMMCS)
The SAMMCS is another development of Digital Technologies. Like any other SAM radar system, it can combat incoming surface-to-air missiles, but in combination with DT's Digital Topography System, not only can you fire against the missile, it then receives to coordinates for the launcher than fired them. The SAMMCS can detect aircraft traveling at an altitude of up to 25,000 meters. Aircraft traveling above 1,000 meters can be detected at up to 100 kilometers but planes traveling lower can only be found at a maximum distance of 35 kilometers.

Edolian Arms Vladimir Mine Laying System
The Edolian Arms Vladimir Mine Laying System can be attached to the back of an EO-5, reducing its crew by 4. It can carry up to 100 mines (not manufactured by Edolian Arms but easily manufactured) that can be quickly placed and buried by the landmine-arm built into the system. Finally, the mines can be activated by remote control from a safe distance.

Air Vehicles

Phoenix-I Interceptor
Purpose: Bomber escort/air superiority
Crew: 1
Length: 15.4 mtrs
Wingspan: 13.4 mtrs when straight; can be bent to 9.8 for space.
Maximum Speed: 3,100 km/hr
Minimum Speed: 198 km/hr
Operational Range: 2,700 km
Altitude Ceiling: 16,570 mtrs
Maximum Climb Speed: 341 mtrs/sec
Maximum G-forces: 9.7
Armament: 1 M61A1 20 mm Vulcan cannon
External Payload: 8x AAM or 4x AAM and 4x AGM
Targeting System: Digital Technologies Tri-Acquire targeting system. Can target and fire at up to three targets at once at a range of 140 km.
Maneuverability: Very good; surprising in a dogfight.
Countermeasures: Flares, chaff, Digital Technologies RJ-1 Interruption System. Also has limited stealth capabilities.

The Phoenix-I has a limited role as an air-superiority fighter; however it performs very well at what it does. Mainly designed for use as a dogfighter, the Phoenix lacks the targeting equipment to be a proper bomber but can be outfitted with four AGM missiles if the need arises. With the Digital Technologies RJ-1 Radar Interruption System, coupled with stealth, radar deflecting paint, it can make it difficult for enemy fighters to get a lock. Though not considered a “stealth” aircraft, the Phoenix-1 does utilize some stealth features, giving it more time to get close to an enemy fighter and blow it away.

The Phoenix-I makes a great fleet-defense fighter as it can be easily launched from an aircraft carrier. However, it is most useful for longer-range air to air strike missions, especially bomber, troop and helicopter support. With its Digital Technologies Tri-Acquire targeting system, it can target and fire upon three enemy planes at a range of up to 140 kilometers. However, the Phoenix is just as deadly at close range. With its large speed range, as well as quick acceleration and deceleration, the Phoenix-1 can keep the enemy guessing and its ability to out-maneuver enemy fighters makes it just as deadly with its 20 mm Vulcan cannon as it is with its missiles.
The Phoenix-1 costs $28 million

Gryphon-1 Helicopter Gunship
Purpose: Troops support and special strike attack helicopter
Crew: Two
Rotor Diameter: 13.2 meters
Length: 16.2 meters
Height: 4.6 meters
Max Speed: 295 km/hr
Range: 392 km
Armament: One 30 mm chain-gun with 1,000 rounds. 16 hellfire/TOW missiles + 8 stinger rockets or 4 sidewinders and two stingers.

The Gryphon-1 is the first helicopter designed and produced exclusively by the Edolian Arms Corporation is will replace the "shareware" Apache helicopters previously produced. The Gryphon-1 is primarily designed as a troop-supporter and anti-tank/personnel heavy hitter. Like most helicopters, it is generally vulnerable to fighters however the Gryphon-1 is more effective against them than most. The Gryphon-1 is frequently used in conjunction with tanks and fighters in battle, providing both air and ground support. Despite having the armaments and armor of a straight-forward heavy assault craft, its twin EA-15H engines give it decent speed and maneuverability. However, it lacks the range of other gunships.
The Gryphon-1 costs $9,500,000

Updates will be made as more equipment comes up for sale.

Joke of the day:

So the great Scotsman Garney McFarlind has just bought 20 yards of new kilt fabric. He uses the first yard to cut out a new kilt for himself. Then, he goes off to see his bonnie lass. She lives at the top of a very high hill and there happens to be a very old, rusty fence around the bottom of the hill. When he opens and then closes the gate, the corner of his kilt gets snagged and without him realizing it, it begins to unwind as he walks up the hill. It's a warm summer day, so he's not wearing any underpants. He also comes from a proud family so he walks holding his head high and not looking down. When he gets to the top of the hill, the kilt is almost completely gone, just leaving a small belt around his waist. He knocks on the door to his bonnie lass' house. She opens the door. "Well, how do you like it?" he asks proudly. "Oh, Garney... I... love it!" she says, not sure exactly how to respond to his inquiry.

"Well then," he says...

..."If you like this one, I've got nineteen more yards back at the house!"

If you enjoyed this joke, order some of our equipment and we'll tell another one. You see, this joke demonstrated a very important principle of Edolian culture. As the great philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once said,
