History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

These fighters squadrons are most effective providing CAS to Durendal ground forces. These "light fighters" are not built to take punishment, but excel at long range tank busting. The Angbar class Light Fighters are dual-environment and streamlined for effective atmospheric work.

Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities[edit]

Vessel Peculiarities: The screen reactors are located very near several of the ship galleys, which leads to many meals registering much higher than expected on rad meters. It's still well within safe limits for most sophont species, but it has still led to an endless number of jokes about nuked food.

Class Naming Practice/s: The vessels are named after major cities and metropolises in the Sword Worlds Confederation.
