There will be a number of Spaceships in Infinite Warfare that will be involved in the story line for the campaign but only one will you actually be able to fly.
Yes you heard it right you will be able to fly in Infinite Warfare but before we get to that one special ship lets take a look at the rest of the fleet of spaceships that will be in the campaign.
The Retribution is a UNSA carrier in Infinite Warfare.
The Retribution is the battleship that Nick Reyes suddenly finds himself in command of after The Settlement Defense Force’s brutal attack on Geneva.
The Retribution serves also as the main hub between missions. The players can choose between campaign missions and side missions throughout the Solar System. The players can also interact with the ship (it can be in various states of repair) and the crew (including Irish, Canadian and Australian soldiers).
The Retribution is capable of carrying twenty Jackals and two Ravens and is 637 meters long and 75 meters high.
The Olympus Mons is the biggest SetDef warship in Infinite Warfare. The warship is under the command of Rear Admiral Salen Kotch. It is 927 meters long and 151 meters high, it is almost 300 meters longer than the Retribution.
It has a top jet speed of 155,343 mph (250,000 km/h) and is capable of FTL travel. The Olympus Mons is designed to be the main hub for the Settlement Defense Front and has the max occupancy of 30 Skelters, 6 DropShips, and a maximum of 2,700 crew members.
The Olympus Mons is equipped with 50 x rapid fire high velocity ballistics, 24 x missile banks, and 1 x steel dragon mega cannon – Retractable Center Weapon. Its armor is equipped with 128 mm reactive over vital space.
The Skelter was developed by the Settlement Defense Front as its primary fighter jet and is classified as a dual-positional-wing multi-role combat aerospacecraft, but it is usually referred to as the “Skelter”. The Skelter comes in three variants, its base design, an Ace Skelter, and a stealth prototype.
It has a top speed of 3,169 mph (5,100 km/h) and its rocket boosters enable it to reach escape velocities of up to 47,845 mph (77,000 km/h). Similar to its opponent, the Jackal, it features flare countermeasures to counter incoming homing missiles as well as omnidirectional infrared countermeasure systems. The Skelter is measured at 21.5 meters long and 3 meters high. The Skelter was designed with alternating wing configurations to easily transition and travel in atmospheres and in space.
The Skelter is equipped with two 30mm cannons and air-to-ground (AGM) missiles. The weapons are controlled with a modular articulating ballistic system. It has a maximum occupancy of a pilot and a rear copilot.
The “Raven” is a Pan-Atmospheric Multi-Gravitational Strategic Airlift Card Aerospacecraft developed by Solar Associated Treaty Organization. It allows S.A.T.O to quickly drop off troops, equipment and ground vehicles into combat.
The Jackal is a fighter jet capable of combat in air and in space in Infinite Warfare. This is the the one ship that you will be able to fly and control by yourself. It has already been confirmed that during the campaign mission that you fly in the Jackal that it will be open world and not a flyby wire experience. As you progress through the campaign you will be able to customize and upgrade the jet throughout.
It was originally developed as part of India’s space program in conjunction with the multinational Solar Associated Treaty Organization fleet and was classified as a tri-positional-wing multi-role combat aerospacecraft, but it is usually referred to as the “Jackal”. Eventually, the Jackal became the primary air/space-interdiction fighter used by SATO.
The Jackal has a top speed of 1,444 mph (5,200 km/h) and its rocket boosters enable it to reach escape velocities of up to 22,222 mph (80,000 km/h), much faster than its opponent, the Skelter. The Jackal features flare countermeasures to counter incoming homing missiles as well as omnidirectional infrared countermeasure systems. The Jackal is measured at 19 meters long and 3 meters high. The Jackal was built to easily transition and travel in atmospheres, in space, and in VTOL flight.
The Jackal is equipped with two 50mm cannons and two 30mm cannons and air-to-ground (AGM) missiles. Furthermore, it also features a modular articulating ballistic system with retinal tracking pivots, so that the cannons will automatically aim according the pilot’s eye-line while flying. It has a maximum occupancy of a pilot and a copilot.
