History

Every detail of it was designed by "Harold Saxon", and it was used for the first Human contact with the Toclafane. (DW: The Sound of Drums) The Doctor, Martha Jones and Jack Harkness teleported onboard using Jack's Vortex manipulator at the co- ordinates 58.2 North 10.2 East.

In the following year in an erased timeline, the Valiant formed the base of operations for the Master. The Jones family (with the exception of Martha Jones, who had escaped and Leo Jones) and Captain Jack Harkness were imprisoned on the ship, as was the Doctor. It also held the paradox machine inside the Doctor's TARDIS. When the timeline was erased, the Valiant was the only point in space and time not to revert, instead moving directly through time, due to it being the "eye of the storm", that is, of the paradox machine. (DW: Last of the Time Lords) This effectively makes anyone who was on the Valiant to begin with and off it at the reversal killed by Jack, and anyone the opposite way around having a duplicate on Earth.

The Toclafane emerge above the Valiant

The Valiant was fitted with a mounted energy weapon almost identical to the gun used to destory the Sycorax meaning the technology could have been salvaged from the remains of the Torchwood institute. During the Sontaran invasion of Earth in 2009 Colonel Mace called in the Valiant which was referred to as Hawk Major. The powerful turbines were used to clear the Sontaran's fog away from the ATMOS factory and the energy weapon was used to blast apart the factory, killing many Sontarans. It is unknown if the weapon was installed after the Master's defeat or if Harry Saxon himself had it incorporated into the initial design.

Daleks swarm the Valiant.

The Valiant was eventually destroyed when the New Dalek Empire attacked Earth following its transportation to the Medusa Cascade. A massive invasion force of Daleks swarmed the ship, destroying it with their laser guns. (DW: The Stolen Earth)

Over the comms system Jack Harkness heard a soldier reporting that the shields were down which could mean that the Valiant also had some kind of protective force-shield.

Propulsion

The Valiant used what appeared to be large Turbofan engines.
close to ground over the Atmos factory to blow away the gas alowing UNIT troops to storm the Sontaran occupied building

The Valiant seems to be able to rotate these engines to lower itself toward the ground as seen in (DW: The Poison Sky) As it was designed by the Master, it was more advanced than any current Earth vehicle due to the fact that it has been previously mentioned to have had the reverse-engineered Jathaa sunglider technology built into it. As a back-up it could have some alternative form of travel, like Anti-gravity propulsion. All of which allow it to not only hover high in up in the Earth's atmosphere but to move across the globe to any destination deemed necessary.

Weapons

It is unknown what sort of weapons the Valiant utilises, Apart from the reverse-engineered Jathaa Sunglider weapon. It could possibly feature a series of CIWS turrets and short range missiles, but as a United Nations ship it might not as it is stated to be neutral territory (DW: The Sound of Drums)

Behind the Scenes

The Valiant's design was very similar to that of Cloudbase, the headquarters of Spectrum from Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons and to Helicarriers used by the fictional Marvel Comics organization SHIELD. The Valiant's weapon system looks like the one that was salvaged from a Jathaa sunglider and the Death Star's planetkilling weapon system from Star Wars. A similar-looking vessel, commanded by an elite British air corps, also appears in the fantasy film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.

Summary

While on the way to Ferenginar, Jake and Nog are attacked by a Jem'Hadar vessel. After been suddenly beamed aboard the U.S.S. Valiant, a Defiant-class warship, Nog recognizes the crew as Red Squad, an elite corps of Starfleet cadets. The 22-year-old captain, Tim Watters, explains that his crew became trapped in Dominion space when the war broke out while originally on a training mission. All of the regular officers were killed. But before he died, the captain ordered Watters to assume command. With Starfleet unaware of the situation and unable to contact them, Watters is trying to complete the Valiant's mission to gather data on a new Dominion battleship. Caught up in Watters's fervor, Nog agrees to join the crew as Chief Engineer. While Nog and Watters hit it off, the captain is less enamored of Jake, the only civilian on the ship. When a member of his crew, Chief Collins, becomes homesick after speaking with Jake, Watters calls Jake into his office and warns him to stay away from her.

Nog successfully completes his first assignment, which is to adjust the Valiant's warp capabilities, by making the same modifications he once saw O'Brien make to the Defiant. He proudly tells Jake of his accomplishment, but his friend is upset that Nog joined the Squad so quickly.

The crew carries out their mission without being detected, but Watters rallies them to now attempt to destroy the enemy ship. Although Jake says that the plan is too risky, Watters only has to remind the group that they're Red Squad — capable of doing anything — and the room erupts in cheers. Even Nog gives the plan his support. Later, Jake confronts his friend over what he believes is a suicide mission and reveals that he has spoken with Collins against orders. Watters, secretly watching on a monitor, has Jake arrested and sent to the Brig.

The battle begins, and the Valiant sustains heavy damage. When the torpedo specially rigged to destroy the Dominion ship doesn't work, the enemy retaliates by unleashing an all-out attack. Soon, Nog and Collins are the only two left standing. After freeing Jake from the Brig, the three manage to flee in an escape pod moments before the Valiant explodes. The Defiant picks up the three survivors, and Nog, shaken by the experience, resigns from Red Squad.

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Contents

Small array of weapons

The weapon equipment list in Final Fantasy VIII is the smallest of its kind in the Final Fantasy series (unless you count Final Fantasy X-2 where you don't equip weapons, since the weapon changes when you change Dresspheres), including the weapons equippable by people who are in your party for a short period of time. There is a total of 35 equippable weapons (13 if you discount the weapons that are upgraded versions of the original weapon).

Gunblades

Difficult to manage well and requiring a lot of skill. These weapons belong to Squall Leonhart and Seifer Almasy. All models of Gunblade have the distinction of having a 255% percent hit rate.

Squall's Gunblades

Weapon Image Cost Limits Description Items Required

Weapon Image Cost Limits Description
Hyperion Hyperion N/A No Mercy, Demon Slice, Bloodfest, Zantetsuken Reverse This gunblade uses a semi-automatic pistol, resembling that of a Beretta, rather than a revolver as a handle and it also has a unique blade. Seifer uses it differently from Squall's gunblades, in a backhand slash rather than a forward one, although this may just be his fighting style and not due to any design mechanic of the weapon, and he also uses it with one hand rather than two. Due to a lack of mention in any source material involving gunblades it is unknown whether this is an actual model type or a custom designed model for Seifer's personal use.

Fanmade Final Fantasy VIII Weapons

Blaster Edges

Silenced Tear

Silenced Tear

Rinoa's secondary weapon in Dead Fantasy can be folded against the arm when not in use and, when activated, can be unfolded and ready to launch within seconds. Like the Blaster Edges before it the Silenced Tear is fired from a wrist mounted launcher and will return to the wielder near the end of its flight ready to be fired again.

When unfolded the center of the disc can be junctioned with magical power in a similar way to Final Fantasy VIII's Junction System. In Dead Fantasy II, Rinoa junctions it with Holy magic and activates it when clashing against Ayane.

Gunblades

Vanishing Star

Vanishing Star

Rinoa Heartilly's primary weapon in Dead Fantasy. It possesses a revolver handle like Squall's gunblade but features a different blade with a white feather and the words Vanishing Star inscribed upon it. Upon further inspection, the Gunblade has two triggers (as noted on Monty Oum's deviant) and an actual gun barrel atop the weapon's blade, as well as exhaust port's on the blade itself, suggesting that it can be used as ranged weapon as well. On said gun barrel, the words All Existence Denied are inscribed: a direct quote of Ultimecia in Final Fantasy VIII
Shotgun Blade

Shotgun Blade

Dion Rogers' Rinoa is seen in concept art wielding this weapon. It possesses a Griever etching on the blade, which is identical in shape to the Revolver's blade. However, it possesses a shotgun handle instead of the Revolver handle.
