Like the Lance class Heavy Fighter, the Javelin class Light Fighter was designed following the Fifth Frontier War, as a result of the extremely poor performance of the then-current three classes of light fighters employed as auxiliaries by IGN warships. Sizing of the Javelin was dictated by the existence of 20 ton capable launch tubes on board some classes of existing warships. Lack of computer ability was the major complaint of the previous classes, and the Javelin mounts a high performance Computer-7. This is responsible for about 75% of the total cost per unit.
The Javelin is armed with a triple missile launcher, and carries 21 missiles. The Javelin is equipped with a pair of small staterooms, allowing for extended duration missions.
