The front end of the US attack force, the Razor is built for speed and agility with only modest armament to aid in combat. It was designed as a reconnaissance vehicle. Relying exclusively on it in a combat situation is not recommended. While the canopy design is almost identical, dubbing the Razor a variant of the P-47 “Thunderbolt” fighter plane would be a massive understatement. It has been retrofitted with twin V-thruster engines and a unique tri-mounted stabiliser system, granting it speed bursts of up to 60 meters per second. Recent modifications on the exhaust ports allow the engine’s thrust to be aimed in any direction, giving the Razor a lightning fast turn speed as well as limited vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capability.

The Razor is the fastest ground-based vehicle ever created by the NSDF, able to outrun the CCA Flanker with ease. But with this trade off, the lowered armor does not fare well in full-front attacks, making the scout better used in finding enemy positions and dropping NAV beacons for its comrades to locate.

Original Design Edit

Truman razor

At first glance, the Razor prototype looks like a crude hybrid of a jet fighter and a hovercraft. But closer inspection shows that "crude" is far too weak a word. Rushing to meet a deadline, NSDF technicians literally sawed the front end off a grounded P-47 and mounted it onto their engine base. The gamble paid off. The bird flew and it put them on track, with later improvements resulting in the Razor scout used during the Biometal wars.

Black Dog Razor Edit

Functionally equivalent to standard NSDF Razor, but features seamless improvements in durability, ammunition capacity and ease of production. It mounts a Shadower missile as standard armament, at the cost of one Minigun. All these improvements also result in a noticeably increased biometal expenditure during manufacturing.

Multiplayer Edit

The multiplayer variant of the Razor carries less ammo but more armor than standard.

Trivia Edit

  • A flaw in the Razor's design means its guns are placed such that they would shoot its canards if fired.
  • The Razor's flank bears an emblem similar to that of the US Army's 1st Cavalry Division, though with the absence of the horse's head in its top half.
