Personalities: despite his moniker as the Sky Pirate, El Cid 1 believes in absolute honour and strictly practices the code of knighthood. He believes that he must respect each opponent challenges, even if his action causes chagrin among his superior.
Style: El Cid 1 is a talented pilot by nature and has flown numerous planes and rode dragons for many years before joining the air force. He excels the most in close-range dogfight and often pushes his plane to the limit just to get behind the enemy’s six.
Possible voice actor: undecided
One of Aurelia’s many Mobius Devices and among a few aircraft-shaped Lost Logia, Firefox is just one of the world’s many super-planes and are classified as Tier 1, along with ADF-01 Falken, X-02 Wyvern and the original XFA-27A. It is an excellent fighter plane than can handle both aerial and ground threats with excellent hit rate.
When it was first built, Yuktobanian engineers foresaw a necessary requirement to match (or outperform) three of the world’s most advanced super-fighters: ADF-01 Falken built by Belka’s Grunder Industries, the XFA-72 and X-02 Wyvern designed by Erusean Aerospace Agency (EASA). Results from years of research and development led to the Firefox, an interceptor aircraft with stealth capabilities, to the point that it would be invisible to radar. The Firefox is originally designated as MiG-31 but in order to avoid confusion with the already existing MiG-31 Foxhound two-seat interceptor, it is given different designation code (which is later omitted as officials start referring to the airplane simply as “Firefox”).
Firefox is powered by two incredibly powerful scramjet engines that permit flight at hypersonic speeds, but their exhaust gives the plane a prominent infrared signature. To counteract this drawback, which would transform the plane into a huge magnet for heat-seeking devices, Firefox is equipped with backward-firing explosive charges that are fired at a pursuing plane or missile.
One of the most well-known features of the Firefox is its Thought-Controlled Weapons System (TCWS), which uses signals from the pilot’s brain to target enemies and fire weapons. It is believed that TCWS is a development of the COFFIN system, already used on the Falken but claimed by Yuktobanian software engineers many times better than the COFFIN.
As it is built to accommodate Aurelian magic modulator, Firefox can carry up to 84 Sidewinder standard heat-seeking missiles and 18 Meteor MDBA long-range air-to-air-missiles for air-to-air engagements. For air-to-surface sorties, the plane can carry 14 KH-31P anti-radiation missiles. Standard close-range engagement weapon consists of GSH-6-30 six-barrel rotary cannon installed inside gun fairing between the engine air intakes. Firefox’s most prominent weapon, however, is the RASM (Rolling Airframe Swarm Missile) system -- this hybrid air-to-air missile combines the best of both worlds (R-73 Archer’s super-manoeuvrability and Meteor’s multiple targeting lock-ons) and is exclusively designed for Firefox. All weapons are carried inside the plane’s weapon bay.
Other capabilities of the Firefox include a 3,000-mile un-refuelled range and flight ceiling over 120,000 feet.
Ten prototypes are built before the plane is to be deployed into active service for Yuktobanian Air Force. Eight of the planes are sent to Aurelian Archipelago during the Great Oceanic War to undergo battlefield tests, and under agreement between Yuktobania and Andalusia they are operated by the kingdom’s elite air unit Livingstone Squadron. Seven planes are used by the squadron throughout the war, but FIREFOX-101 (flown and operated by El Cid 1) stands out from the rest as it is extensively modified to accommodate the pilot’s Briton magic ability, particularly Noble Illusions. It is also the most recognized plane of all, with jet black/bright red paint job and the prominent “Jolly Roger” emblem on the two vertical stabilizers. Livingstone Squadron’s Firefoxes are also equipped with advance digital optical stealth system (which is later adopted by FENRIR, the next super-fighter). Despite their capabilities, the squadron is unable to defeat Swallow 7 and is destroyed along with the Ultimo Zeus inter-continental ballistic missile launched from Saint Helena.
As a Lost Logia, Firefox is regarded by TSAB officers as a high-value, “must-study” artefact -- if they can ever get a hand on it. So far, access to its blueprints or working models is restricted to Yuktobanian officials, and even TSAB can’t get their hand on the only other working Firefox (currently in the possession of the Freelance Air Force) that lacks either the DOS system or the capability of flying hypersonic.
: Aurelia’s variation of Barrier Jacket.
: El Cid 1’s first magic, it is Tizona’s auto-guard spell. Although weak it can absorb attacks from all directions.
: a powerful one-direction protection spell that can withstand strong magical or physical attacks.
: El Cid 1 attempts to deactivate a binding or imprisoning spell; in Aurelia’s case, imprisoning spell refers to strong electromagnetic jamming frequency that destroys the aircraft by frying its equipment from inside out.
: this is Tizona’s mode of defence after fused with FIREFOX-101 and deploys Aurelian magic decoys and sometimes jamming frequency to disrupt enemy’s detection system.
: analogous to “Perception” and the likes.
: this unique ability allows El Cid 1 to create many alter-images of his plane, usually used in conjunction with Countermeasures.
: used to boost Firefox’s speed.
El Cid 1 possesses only one ability that is forever associated with him:
Unlimited Dogfight Works
. This uniquely Briton ability is distinctive for being the only Noble Illusion exclusively for fighter pilots. Like any
Unlimited Dogfight Works
enhances its caster’s perception on the battlefield and increases all stats by summoning a surreal world in which target(s) is/are trapped inside the world. Then the caster proceeds to use all elements of dogfight and aerial battles inside the realm freely. El Cid 1 has been known to use Unlimited Dogfight Works many times in the war, and his victims do not usually survive to tell the tale.
I am the bone of my wing.
Sky is my body, and smoke is my blood.
I have shot down a thousand planes.
Unknown to AA guns. Nor known to missile threats.
I had endured the endless torrents of bullet hell.
Just to shoot down more enemies.
I have no respect. This is just a way.
As I fly this plane,
“Unlimited Dogfight Works!”
