Phaeton Juicer O.C.C.
Phaetons were developed by Ultra-Tech Industries (UI). The
first prototypes were “created” in the kingdom of Newtown, but
the treatment didn’t become commercially available until Newtown
joined the Coalition States. It would later become available
at the free city of Fort El Dorado, an ally of the CS. The stated
purpose of the Phaeton Variant was to create the ultimate combat
pilot, able to withstand G-forces that would knock a normal
human unconscious, and to “push the envelope” of any vehicle’s
performance to its ultimate level.
The project was very successful. Phaetons (named after the
mythological character who dared pilot the sun chariot of the
gods) are less well-developed in terms of strength and endurance,
and they resemble the Hyperion Juicer in that they tend to
be smaller and faster than the stronger, more hulking standard
Juicer. However, put them in the cockpit of any vehicle and the
Phaeton becomes one with the machine.
Since their inception, Phaetons have become very popular
and conversions are offered in several cities and kingdoms in
North America (pirated from New Town or Fort El Dorado;
something that has made the Coalition very unhappy).
