Meta Engineering and the advent of Gem Capacitor-powered electric motors have enabled the development of ducted fan engines with a high thrust-to-weight ratio capable of generating jet-like performance. This revolutionary technology makes personal flight systems unable to get off the drawing board with fuel-based propulsion a reality.
A two-engine design first seen in the United States gives the pilot superior range and flight maneuverability. However, intelligence reports from Heiligtum, the ODESSA-controlled sanctuary zone at the center of Berlin, detail a Luftstürmer zbV unit wearing a single-engine variant. Although it has a shorter range and is less maneuverable, a single-engine is admirably suited for combat engagements where short bursts or jumps between targets and cover are the order of the day.
