Capsule

Developed primarily for planetary defense, this fighter is light and maneuverable, although not heavily armored or shielded. It holds 8 fire-linked laser cannons mounted on the wings, missiles, and a nasty, independently mounted heavy laser cannon on the tail of the craft which can swivel and turn to cover the rear, the sides, or add extra firepower to a forward target.
For all it’s firepower, it is relatively low cost to manufacture and is also fuel efficient, which allows buyers to buy and maintain more craft, thus when encountered, this fighter is usually seen in swarm-like formations that can overwhelm heavier craft with shear numbers.
