Technical Details

Commissioned by the US Air Force in 1950 and built by a group of civilian engineers, the three Florida Automatic Computers were first operated in April 1953. They were used to process data from air-breathing and cruise missile tests at Atlantic Missile Range until 1960, when they were replaced by IBM 709 computers.

The FLAC was a von Neumann architecture computer, and most closely resembled the SEAC.

Character details

FLAC-tan is a woman of average height, with gray eyes, tanned skin and sun-bleached brown hair. She is particularly fast, strong and fast-healing for a computer of her era; however she is also quite temperamental, making her difficult to work with. FLAC-tan is depicted as either an Airman First Class or civilian contractor; in either interpretation, she is an expert on various missiles.
