The TC02A Broken Sunrise class Fleet Interceptor is a combatant smallcraft.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The TC02A Broken Sunrise class Fleet Interceptor class is used by the Trooles Confederation. These are fully streamlined dual environment vehicles. Lifting, variable geometry wings and heavy grav modules make them very maneuverable. They have dog fighting speed and agility. The model 2 computer and the bridge make target acquisition better for missile battery fire. The bridge can not support a fiber optical back up system and larger computers were rejected because of the power drain, which this reactor could not sustain. Fire control is adequate for ground support roles, but this craft is not expected to engage enemy fleet combatants. Power restrictions also lead to the cancellation of a pulse laser installation project. They are very popular with their elite fighter crews.

The vessel has a fully streamlined needle/wedge configuration structure hull. It is fitted with fuel scoops and allowing it to perform wilderness ocean refueling.
