Terran Confederation Falcon class interceptor
About this creation

The Falcon class interceptor is the fastest and most agile of the Terran Confederation's fighter craft. Built primarily to engage and destroy other fighters, the Falcon is often used in a space superiority role in which it excels.


The Falcon carries heavy firepower for its size, armed with a long range Vendetta laser cannon under each wing and a pair of low RPM SLT-370 mass drivers under the fuselage. As an added bonus, the ship's small oncoming profile puts each weapon within a span of just over half a square meter--a huge benefit when chasing down elusive targets.


While these fighters have been tasked with taking down larger targets such as corvettes, freighters, and transports, their lack of heavier missile or torpedo based firepower hinders them in such roles. As an interceptor, however, the Falcon is unmatched.


Many redundant systems were dropped during the craft's design and as a result, it is extremely light. This allowed the craft to be fitted with a much lighter but limited-range FTL drive. Thus, the presence of Falcons usually indicates the close proximity of a Terran carrier or fighter command.


The total range of the Falcon's capabilities are as of yet unknown; no human pilot can withstand the estimated 75G maneuvering that the craft has been estimated to achieve. Thus, Falcon pilots are required to undertake advanced training and conditioning before being issued the command of one. Even within human capabilities, the Falcon class is the pinnacle of interceptor design and have been described as "artistry in motion" in skilled hands.

looks great! it has the feel of the arwing of starfox fame, obviously wingless. the shape and sleek design definitely gives the feel of a lightning-quick fighter.
