The Adip class Missile Fighter was produced in vast numbers and carried on a wide variety of warships.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

This design was a clear representative of Vilani ship building philosophies. A sleek, streamlined saucer that was simple and efficient, quick and agile. It carried two crew and a pair of missile launchers for the swarming missile volleys, from a safe distance, that was a favored tactic. Everything was going great with that, by the way, until they met the Solomani...

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Imperial Navy used fighter craft, but Vilani fighter doctrine was not very aggressive. A fighter squadron’s function was to emerge from its mother ship, remain at a distance from the enemy, add to the weight of the fleet’s missile volleys, and then return for reloading. As a result, Vilani fighter pilots tended to be more lightly trained and to have less esprit de corps than their Terran counterparts... a fatal flaw once the Terrans built their own fighter wings and their own (much more aggressive) fighter doctrine.
