The Gahcuyche class Heavy Fighter is a combatant smallcraft.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Resembling the 30-ton boat, this craft is fielded in a variety of configurations. The example illustrated is an expensive, flexible-response. long-duration model. The fusion gun and missile launcher allow a variety of tactics, including the ability to attack over-the-horizon targets. This model is used extensively against the Solomani.

Cheaper and more common models substitute lasers and/or deadfall bomb bays for the fusion gun, or lose the life support to produce a short-duration fighter with either two fusion guns or three lighter weapons - usually a mixture of lasers and missile racks. The front-line commanders usually ask for fusion guns. but the cost and Hiver preference fur long-range weapons mean that the Federation Navy does not always oblige.
