SKY Bullets Vehicle in Secret Agent Someone | World Anvil

SKY Bullets

Α vehicle or type of vehicle used for long journeys
    These ships are used for transporting food, supplies, and crew members to and from various W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P. Space Bases. When there are troubles with satellites or other ships in space that belong to the organization, they send out a crew to assist.

Weapons & Armament

These ships are not heavily armed. They are meant primarily for transport of goods to and from the W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P. Space Bases.

Communication Tools & Systems

Onboard there are several communication methods that allow the crew to keep in contact with Earth space base fake volcano island and the various bases in space that they travel to and from.   These communication means vary from text based to verbal messaging. The messages are sent over a secure network that is established and monitored by W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P..

Sensors

Many of these SKY Bullets have sensors that detect various satellites and are able to scan and see where each device is from, who created it, and what its purpose is in space. They can also monitor what sorts of signals are being sent to and from the device. Sometimes, the SKY Bullets are equipped to intercept the signals or jumble them. This can be useful for interrupting the progress of satellites that are attempting to report sensitive information found on W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P. itself.

Hangars & docked vessels

There are usually two or three small escape pods on each SKY Bullet ship. These pods can typically hold only one passenger each, though some are designed to hold two. The escape pods are equipped with enough rations for about two weeks in space and have many viable means of communication including distress beacons.

Commander McCox Gives Newbies the Rundown:   W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P. has agents all over the globe AND above it. Did you know that there are folks up there right now? Yep. Totally unseen by any governments. There are full leagues of Base Ops devoted to keeping things like this out of the sight of prying eyes. In addition to measures taken to stop them from being tracked electronically, there are also things being done to make sure people don't witness it in person. To get them up there, they blast them off from Volcanot Island in SKY Bullets. Traditional rockets may be too large and awkward to be concealed under this ruse, but, thankfully, W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P. is all about minimizing and making things discreet. SKY Bullets are roomy enough to accommodate all the gear and space they need, but compact enough to be stealthy and quick. Wouldn't it be great to see one of those babies take off into the sky? You might even miss it.

One big Question - due to the name and sillhoutte of the vehicle - do they have an own internal rocket system to take of earth OR (which I would like even more) are they using a special kind of launching cannon within the Volcanot to shoot the bullets into space?
P.S. I Like it

    thanks. the art was quite rushed and the name was also suggested by the same user in-stream who titled VolcaNot island :D I know they are small, compact vehicles and there is something about the volcano that helps to launch them, but they are fully capable of launching on their own as well when they have traveled to moons and planets, it's not a one-way trip. They are able to return which means they can take off without the aid of the volcano. :)
