FASA Timeline

In 2019, the DY-100 class underwent extensive design and performance upgrades to become the DY-500 class. The Amjet V Thrusters were the most efficient engines of the 21st century, and the magnetohydrodynamic generator provided all on-board power. The class was particularly popular for travel to and within the asteroid belt, and it remained in service until 2055.[1]
