   * Autonomous Kill Vehicle (AKV) - a short-ranged space-only vehicle, usually deployed by an SDV or other warship, and controlled by an on-board pseudo-intelligent computer. ​ AKVs carried weapons such as railguns and missiles with nuclear bomb-pumped X-ray laser warheads, and were designed to serve as a force multiplier in ship-to-ship combat during the Apocalypse War, engaging warships with on-board weapons and even ramming them as a last resort. ​ Rumors persist of rogue or orphaned AKVs still prowling Sol System'​s asteroid belt, but the last known encounter(s) occurred in early 2205, when an orphaned AKV destroyed the independent vessel //Talon II// and subsequently self-terminated by ramming the Coalition warship //​Angelus//​. ​ //​Angelus//, ​ responding to //Talon II//'s distress call, was critically damaged in the attack and required lengthy repairs at New Philadelphia'​s shipyard before returning to Thinora System. ​ Autonomous kill vehicles are prohibited by treaty in all of Known Space, and any reported sightings will pique the interests of both the Space Defense Force and any local military agencies, all who would see the vehicle destroyed rather than become a technological asset to a competitor.   * Autonomous Kill Vehicle (AKV) - a short-ranged space-only vehicle, usually deployed by an SDV or other warship, and controlled by an on-board pseudo-intelligent computer. ​ AKVs carried weapons such as railguns and missiles with nuclear bomb-pumped X-ray laser warheads, and were designed to serve as a force multiplier in ship-to-ship combat during the Apocalypse War, engaging warships with on-board weapons and even ramming them as a last resort. ​ Rumors persist of rogue or orphaned AKVs still prowling Sol System'​s asteroid belt, but the last known encounter(s) occurred in early 2205, when an orphaned AKV destroyed the independent vessel //Talon II// and subsequently self-terminated by ramming the Coalition warship //​Angelus//​. ​ //​Angelus//, ​ responding to //Talon II//'s distress call, was critically damaged in the attack and required lengthy repairs at New Philadelphia'​s shipyard before returning to Thinora System. ​ Autonomous kill vehicles are prohibited by treaty in all of Known Space, and any reported sightings will pique the interests of both the Space Defense Force and any local military agencies, all who would see the vehicle destroyed rather than become a technological asset to a competitor.
