The Chimera Gunship was originally designed, by The GalTech Industries Corporation, as a well armed gunship intended to be able to carry a large array of weaponry to combat the growing Thargoid threat.

The weapon carrying capability together with reasonable speed and good manoeuvrability also make the vessel an attractive option for bounty hunters and pirates as well as the ideal choice for combating lager ships. With an extendable cargo capacity of 20T this vessel also caters for the smaller trader.

Standard Equipment

Forward Beam Laser, fuel scoops and ECM.

Ship Variants

The ship is available as both a player and NPC ship. Police versions of this ship come equipped with forward and aft military lasers, an ECM system and carry 8 missiles. Pirate versions are equipped with forward and aft beam lasers, 3 missiles and have a 90% chance of also having an ECM system installed. Other NPC ships are equipped with forward and aft beam lasers, 2 missiles and have an 80% chance of also having an ECM system installed.

Minimum Requirements

The OXP was designed to work on Oolite 1.76 but should also be compatible with future versions (The shipdata.plist is incompatible with versions prior to v1.75 because of the use of the scan_class key). No additional OXPs are required to be installed in order for this OXP to run.


Move the OXZ file to the AddOns directory of your Oolite installation. Start the game up while pressing the "SHIFT" key until the rotating ship appears. The ship should than be added to your game.
