The Peacekeepers, despite being a military regime, do not invest undue resources in developing an expansive military might. As an example of that, the Peacekeepers only utilize one class of starfighter, a light interceptor, dubbed Lob-Star class. The ship is highly maneuverable and agile and surprisingly resilient. It features only two pulse cannons, and is considered a threat in large numbers. One, two, or a few of these fighters are not considered a threat by captains of capital vessels, as the interceptor is designed for dog-fighting, not fleet battles. Still, in the hands of the well trained elite commandos who pilot these vessels, they can be a danger to almost any unwary adversary.
About this creation
A starmap of Known Space, showing the location of Peacekeeper space in relation to Earth, and the other major powers.
Lob-Star class light interceptors are only piloted by the Peacekeeper commandos. The commandos are an elite unit of the Peacekeeper military that is trained in operation of numerous types of vessels, masters of hand-to-hand combat, and are given the best resources and training. They are a feared military strength across Known Space. Fortunately for many, the expense of training and equiping these elite soldiers prohibits any large number of them being deployed. They are more of a 'surgical' unit.
This shot gives us a nice size comparison of the Lob-Star light interceptor with the Star Sword frigate.
