G11.3. Landing sites formed by arrangements of the Magnocraft

All classes of the Magnocraft's landing sites discussed above are made by a single vehicle. But, as this is explained in subsection G3, Magnocraft may fly and land while coupled into various flying arrangements. Also in such cases Magnocraft can produce appropriate landing sites whose properties can differ from those left by solo flying vehicles. This subsection discusses the properties of the landing sites produced by such flying arrangements of Magnocraft.
In general, the landing sites produced by various arrangements of the Magnocraft can be subdivided into two groups: (1) those which look very similar to the landing sites left by single vehicles, and (2) those whose appearance is unique to a given arrangement.
To the first group of landing sites, which look similar to those made by single vehicles, belong sites produced by all physical complexes, e.g. spherical and cigar-shaped complexes, as well as sites of semi-attached and detached configurations. Most of the information from the previous subsections on landing sites of individual vehicles applies to their cases as well. Only some details may differ for them from those provided so far. For example, the magnetic field produced by flying arrangements is much more powerful than that produced by single vehicles. Therefore in the sites where such arrangements have landed, damage to the soil must also be much more extensive. In turn the so-called “critical time” of landing required to sterilise completely the soil is much shorter. Furthermore, the central scorch mark on such sites is displaced from the centre of the site into the opposite direction from what it would be in at the site when produced by a single vehicle (i.e. in the Southern hemisphere, single vehicles displace this central mark towards a south direction, whereas arrangements of the Magnocraft displace the same central mark towards a north direction). Such an opposite displacement of the central mark results from the use by flying arrangements of a different principles for balancing their motionless weight during hovering.
To the second group of landing sites, which look much different from those produced by individual vehicles, belong mainly landing sites produced by flying systems and by flying clusters. Let us now discuss the most characteristic attributes of their landing sites.
