SSV Iwo Jima

SSV Iwo Jima

By Carmen

This is a replica of Normandy-class Alliance frigate from the Mass Effect Universe – albeit simplified to fit a voxel-based game engine.

Named after the Battle of Iwo Jima, the SR5 is optimized for low atmospheric and terrestrial strike operations against maritime targets. Unlike other Normandy-class vessels, SR5 is designed for wartime production and lacks a great many creature comforts associated with previous vessels.

She is armed with 2 GARDIAN laser turrets and a pair of heavy attack missiles for use against maritime targets and fortifications.

Additional Background:

The Systems Alliance Space Vehicle Iwo Jima is based on the successful Normandy class deep reconnaissance frigate, with notable design simplification in order to facilitate wartime production.

Completed mere weeks before the Reaper Invasion, it is not known if the SR-5 prototype survived the Battle of Earth.

The Iwo Jima follows the same Human-Turian hybrid design with a drastic reduction in structural and systems complexity to minimize production costs. Intended as a point scout and fast attack unit, the SR-5 lacks many of the creature comforts syonymous with the Normandy-class in order to facilitate maximum offensive capability. In addition, large parts of the hull and structure are manufactured with unusual non-strategic composites such as wood-alloy panels.

At the time of the Invasion, SR-5 was assigned to the Alliance Navy spaceport at Connecticut, performing atmospheric flight trials with an experimental compound-turboencabulator fossil fuel engine in lieu of a conventional Element Zero drive core. It is unlikely the vessel could have achieved Earth orbit without mass effect generation capability
