The Giicuyche class Light Fighter is a combatant smallcraft.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Although untried against the Imperium's comparable Rampart class, this fighter scares the Solomani. It has heavier armor than the Rampart, and this front-line model mounts a single fusion gun, although much cheaper craft have two lasers.

The fighter is unstreamlined, apparently serving to discourage its pilots from surrendering the high-guard position. Published manuals insist that, in Federation doctrine, the proper place to fight for a planet is from orbit, a stance belied by the streamlining of SDBs, and heavy fighters. The overwhelming likelihood is that streamlining would have reduced space for engines, forcing a sacrifice of either armor or acceleration.
