Special Abilities

Chaff and Flares – As a standard action, the pilot can choose to release a series of flares and flak. The ship carries only enough for 3 uses, at which time they need to be replenished. Using these will increase the fighters TL by 2.

Nimble – When making the Flip and burn maneuver, the DC is 15+1x the tier.

Turbo Burst – As a full round action, the pilot can initiate the Turbo engines on the fighter. When this takes place, the speed increases to 15, but manoeuvrability drops to poor. The ship can maintain this for a maximum of 5 rounds before the fuel reserves for this are drained and need to be replenished. 

 

Concept

A single seat fighter used by the Colonial Warriors during the Cylon war. This particular fighter is fully capable of both Vacuum and atmosphere flight. Thanks to the two powerful forward facing Mass driver cannons, it is an excellent combat fighter. It can also carry a maximum of 8 nuclear missiles. Thanks to its speed and maneuverability, it is often used for scouting missions and long-range reconnaissance.

The ship is 28 feet long, by 9 feet in height and has a wingspan of 16 feet.
