The JHCS-8813 Icarus is the anti-aircraft vehicle of the Phoenix Mercenaries. The anti-air unit is able to target and engage on only airborne units. It fires powerful homing missiles, but has poor perception and speed.


Icarus, as the anti-air unit has been named, is one of the newest additions to the support class of Phoenix vehicles. This sleek, maneuverable, craft is capable of tearing enemy aerodynes apart in seconds and bringing them crashing to the surface. The Icarus is designed around its unstable molecule plasma launcher. To lend to it’s speed the Icarus is lightly armored and is better kept safe around large tanks.

The Icarus is armed with a first generation plasma launcher designed by Marc Herra. The cannon creates a ball of unstable plasma molecules, held together by a shell of energy and a wish. The shell is launched into the air and rapidly cools causing it to shatter. Once this happens the plasma erupts into several individual precalculated bursts. These bursts fly almost unerringly toward aerodynes and shred the light armor of the aerodynes.

The targeting system is based loosely on the drone carrier's system of rapidly calculating a pattern and determining the best placement for fire. Thus far the Icarus has proven itself on the battlefield and continues to impress.
