Naval Air Engineering Artificer (4 years training)
The UN Navy don't just operate Variable Fighters, but regular aircraft and Helicopters both on land and at sea. They also have space shuttles and other spacegoing vehicles. Naval Air Engineering Artificers maintain and repair, all of the non-mecha vehicles, other than the Warships themselves. The work covers all aspects of repair on non-transformable aircraft and helicopters from airframes to engines, hydraulics to flying controls, and fuel systems to radio equipment, weapons and electrical systems. This Naval Air Engineering Artificer is NOT a Mecha Mechanic.

Although it doesn't get the publicity that its larger cousing the UN Spacy gets it is still a large and influential members of the UN Armed Forces ensuring the safety of the oceans and sea's of Earth and its sister colonies.

This is very odd considering that the ship is mostly steel and flamables are usually contained and safegaurds in place.

No clue what that means. Space Shuttles and other spacegoing vehicles?
Poorly written w/ typos indicates baloney but this was interesting: note the phrase "and it's sister colonies".
Ahhh, sure then. UN Spaceships are currently protecting ie engaging in intergalatic war to protect the sister colony Shaniqua? See you when you land back on Earth Commander.
