Description

The Interior of the fighter is nothing more than a small cockpit containing the pilot's seat.

Advantages

  • Balanced Shield and Hull firepower.
  • High Top Speed and small size makes it difficult to hit.

Disadvantages

  • Has low firepower compared to other Fighters.
  • Can easily be shot down by AA ships.
  • Extremely high cost to have all fighters in use at once.

Strategy

  • Use the ship's high maneuverability to get into the blind spots of larger ships.

Version History

  • Replaced the Foxfire due to the model being reverted in Version .75a5
