A small streamlined attack saucer used as a system defense craft.

Description[edit]

With its model 4 computer it is accurate with its nuclear missile salvoes. Designed for the Biumvirate to serve in the Biumvirate Battle Fleet. The heavy fighter has some agility and 5Gs pursuit acceleration, it is also well armored. There are three missile launchers and a customs inspection boarding party on board. This design does not have the life support capacity for lengthy patrol operations beyond that which a couch affords.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Their streamlined hull allows them to deploy from small out posts around their home system. The crew rests nearby, an alarm sounds, they scramble, a team of marine specialists and their pilot. They blast off as more of an interceptor, rather than a lone picket. When combined with the fleet's tender, they can shift to offensive operations.
