Introduction and Authorization Statement
After the hijacking of Lunar Cruises LMS Armstrong in the Iron System two quarters ago, NFCL has completed a comprehensive, 100% review of all physical and electronic security measures, including customs and border protection, and have deployed the first transhuman armed security teams on our ships. Customer reaction has been overwhelmingly positive, particularly since the new security teams fit the NFCL "all-werewolf" aesthetic far better than the armed security contractors used in the past on dangerous routes. They are also far more combat-effective, owing to the new Jotunn Security Suite. We have also begun deployment of the M-09V-S, a male general service werewolf model with enhanced combat and protective measures. This model is ideal for shipboard officers, who are already issued sidearms and expected to take command in the event of emergencies. These upgraded guards and M-09V-S officers are more than a match for a squad of six to ten transhuman hijackers armed with M34A1 railrifles, NorTech machinerifles, and similar semi-obsolete small arms of the sort commonly used by Iron System corsairs.
First, we will begin equipping certain stewards working in the Haven, serving as personal butlers and personal stewards, or employed on Dream Fleet ships with the Jotunn Security Suite. VIP passengers are a favorite target of corsairs both within the Iron System and in general. This measure will demonstrate that NFCL is committed to their personal safety.
Second, we will expand our upgrade program to include females, who make up approximately 30% of our officers, Haven staff, personal stewards, and Dream Fleet crew. Although we could assign M-09V-S models to these roles, equality of the sexes is a fundamental Newfenririan value and customers expect to see female werewolves aboard our ships.
Therefore, I have determined that we will need to design a female-specific counterpart to the upgraded male service models currently in production: the F-09V-S.
Work is to begin immediately. The project plan is included below.

NFCL wishes to expedite development as quickly as possible to ensure that F-09V-S models will be available for Iron System winter cruising season. NFCL also wishes to minimize any perception that female crew members are not being provided with the same level of protection and advanced transhuman systems as their male counterparts.
Solution: This model should use as many off-the-shelf components as possible. Modification of standard components and surgical procedures should always be favored over new development. Concepts devised during the development cycle of the M-09V-S should serve as a reference point.
The Director of BioEngineering believes that the implants required for this project will be especially burdensome for the standard F-09V skeletal, muscular, and nervous system. This chassis is relatively lightweight for a combat-oriented transhuman, even more so than its male counterpart.
Solution: Recalls and follow-up surgery as needed to replace prematurely worn-out biological and biosynthetic components.
Outward appearance of the F-09V-S should be to NFCL uniform standards for female victualing valet models (see NFCL Corporate Regulations and Standard Operating Procedures, Section 72F, Lines 67-131). However, given the appearance of the M-09V-S, it is believed that F-09V-S models will be substantially larger and bulkier than their standard counterparts, to the point of being questionable in terms of femininity.
Solution: Modification of NFCL uniforms to de-emphasize bulk and give a gentler appearance. Uniforms should also feature additional feminine cues. Revised Uniform Regulations will be written upon completion of first batch of F-09V-S models.
Experience with M-09V-S models shows that the Jotunn Security Suite demands very high levels of caloric and protein intake for full functionality. In particular, the Myogenesis Regulator requires a bare minimum of 5000 k/cal daily to operate under its Standard Combat Ruleset (SCR). Werewolves equipped with the Jotunn Security Suite will also need to be supplied with nutrients not found in standard NFCL rations or nutritional supplements.
Solutions: Issue Jotunn Transhuman Nutritional Supplement 67C instead of standard 34R5. Provide 200% larger rations. Monitor all F-09V-S werewolves to ensure proper Myogensis Regulator functionality. Non-SCR operation of the Myogenesis Regulator will be treated as a reportable man alfunction and brought to the immediate attention of the shipboard surgeon.
It is not believed that F-09V-S models will be able to comfortably lie on the standard NFCL crew bunks issued to victualing models. In addition, M-09V-S models often report finding their quarters to be excessively cramped, particularly in the case of stewards living in standard crew berths.
Solution: Disregard. This is unlikely to be an impediment to functionality.
Based on experience with Type M-09V-S models, we expect the F-09V-S to be well-suited for NFCL service.
Pending final approval, 10 candidates for an initial Batch 1 cycle will be selected and upgraded by Jotunn Heavy Surgical Hospital Systems, Armistice Facility. Within 14 days of completion of Batch 1, work will begin on Batch 2, consisting of a full class of 50 candidates. Within 60 days of completion of Batch 1, the Jotunn HSHS Ceramic City Facility should be prepared for intake of Batch 3. Within 120 standard days of completion of Batches 1, 2, and 3, Jotunn Heavy Surgical Hospital Systems should have processes and equipment necessary for manufacture of F-09V-S models standardized across all facilities which conduct transhuman surgery for NFCL.
