Scinfaxi Submarine

The Scinfaxi (シンファクシ Shinfakushi) was a submarine engineered by the Union of Yuktobanian Republics during the Cold War.

History

During the midst of the Osean-Yuktobanian Cold War in the 1980s, the arms race had began to come to its top form. Osea began to fully develop its Self Defense Initiative (SDI) program, which usually included laser weaponry and kinetic energy weaponry. Yuktobania began to research the "Arsenal Ship" concept. In a sense, a ship which could deliver massive amounts of fire power with no support needed.
The original design was intended to be stealthy SLBM system. This project demanded a more stealthy than usual platform due to the Osean SDI programme. Later the ability to act as an AEGIS system and also to act as an aircraft carrier while being highly mobile had become defining abilities for the vessel.
The completed programme resulted in the Scinfaxi-class submarine comprising of two hulls. The lead vessel Scinfaxi had AEGIS capability, Multi-Purpose Burst Missile launchers instead of standard SLBMs, was extremely stealthy and capable of operating VTOL aircraft.
The 2nd of September 1991 brought the first publication of any information on this mega battleship. Though to be still in development it was hailed as a "battleship of the new age", but the Osean Minister of Foreign Affairs at the time noted that the ships were similar to that of the Dragonet-class nuclear submarines. These ageing vessels were in possession of the FCU on the Usean Continent. Osean High Command did not consider these vessels to be a threat at the time and no further military action was planned to counter the new vessels.
However, Osea's "Arkbird" was being developed and completed at that point in time. Each weapon became a part of each country's "propaganda" in the 80s, but eventually lead to a relation of harmony in the nineties. With the collapse of the "Cold War" the Scinfaxi-class submarine was all but forgotten.

History

The first deployment of the power of these ships came while the Oseans were deploying their main naval force, the Osean Navy 3rd fleet.  This fleet consisted of the aircraft carriers Kestrel, Vulture and Buzzard, which were converging on Eaglin Straits after a failed Yuktobanian assault on the naval facilities in Port St. Hewlett.  As Osea moved its aircraft carriers to launch a counterattack through the Eaglin Straits, the Yuktobanian Navy deployed the Scinfaxi to stop them.  A squadron of anti-ship aircraft attacked the Osean fleet, but they were intercepted and destroyed by Osea's Wardog Squadron and the carriers' fighter aircraft.
The Scinfaxi then made an unexpected move: to launch an assault with its Burst Missiles on the fleet.  Two of the three carriers, Vulture and Buzzard, were critically damaged and sank, leaving the Kestrel as the only Osean carrier left in the fleet.  The pilots of the 108th TFS Wardog & Capt. Marcus Snow - callsign Swordsman - also barely managed to escape the attack.  After having seen their fleet devastated by the Scinfaxi's attack, Osea deployed the A-SAT laser system to the Arkbird to counter the Yuktobanian naval power. Just a few days later, Yuktobanian forces launched an amphibious assault on Sand Island as a prelude to the Osean invasion with the Scinfaxi as their spearhead unit. Sand Island defense forces lead by Wardog Squadron were deployed to stop them, alongside several trainee pilots, who'd never engaged in real combat. When the Scinfaxi joined the assault using its burst missiles, Osea deployed the Arkbird to launch laser attacks from outer space, evaporating the missiles in mid-air. The Arkbird, however, could not shoot down all the missiles, and the trainees who were flying with Wardog Squadron`s planes were damaged, could not eject, and crashed into the ocean. The Scinfaxi was engaged by a combined assault from Wardog Squadron and the Arkbird, and eventually destroyed, ending the actual plans of a Yuktobanian invasion. The final cutscene was of wreckage of the Scinfaxi sinking to the bottom and exploding.
However, in the FMV post-battle, a second submarine, similar to the Scinfaxi, was seen navigating through the recently sunk submarine's remains.

Trivia

The Hrimfaxi and Scinfaxi submarines take their names from Norse mythology. In Norse mythology, Skínfaxi and Hrímfaxi are the horses of Dagr (day) and Nótt (night). The names Skínfaxi and Hrímfaxi are bahuvrihis, meaning "sheen mane" and "rime mane" [or "frost mane"], respectively. Skinfaxi pulled Dagr's chariot across the sky every day and his mane lit up the sky and the earth below.
The myth of Skinfaxi is believed to originate in the Nordic Bronze Age religion, for which there is strong evidence of beliefs involving a horse pulling the sun across the sky. The Trundholm sun chariot is drawn by a single horse, and was possibly imagined to be pulled back across the sky west to east by a second horse.
