SP338-D Mydeea by Norsehound SP338-D Mydeea by Norsehound
The Sunflower space colony was the first of the three to be completed, to serve and assist the construction of the other two space colonies of Project Earth. In spite of the failure of that global effort, Sunflower remained and became one of the economic hubs of the late 2400s.

As the UEPC gained prominence on the earth, some of the leaders on the Sunflower satellite began to fear that the earth would turn their military attentions to space. With no experience in constructing Axels of their own, a low-intensity project was started to create an axel design of their own to serve as one part of a space defense force. Even though Sunflower managed to ultimately become part of the UEPC, the Axel designs were completed and put on file. It remained indexed under the Sunflower manufacturing production code- SP (Self-produced) design 338. Model-A was the completed blueprints.

Over the years a few private inventors found the design and created their own models, which are broadly classified as B models. C is given to a half-hearted design to convert the unit into a construction assistance machine for the Veladus plan on Palifca (which called for the placement of huge solar pannels in an effort to export microwave energy).

The Mydeea would have remained a fantasy if the Agitators had not risen to power on Sunflower. The Magnate called for the formation of a self-defense army on the justification that Sunflower would have to protect itself from the rising global unrest already causing the UEPC problems. The Mydeea plans were revived and brought into full production.

The D model is considered the most modern version of the Mydeea and is the 'true' version. It lacks some new innovations in Axel technology within the past twenty years (ballistics jackets, gloves), but in performance trials it appears to be a balance between the land-only KR-14 series and both versions of the MN-18.

Actually found this axel in my files and decided to clean it up and finish it off.

For a microgravity design, it seems a bit light on maneuvering thrusters.

Still love it though.
