Shuriken Swarm Fighters are possibly the most dangerous craft in existence for the pilots that fly them. The small ships can reach speeds in excess of 1000km/h, and coupled with minimal armour and the lack of a shield generator, it's almost suicide for the pilots.
While the ship is riddled with risks, a simple but very effective emergency escape system is fitted, so the pilot is able to eject before being killed.
The ship is quite nimble, and is armed with two light plasma cannons. Think of these ships as the Grunts from Halo; individually, they pose very little threat, but together, they can overwhelm enemies with ease. They are usually deployed in groups of 15.
The ships are only short range vessels, due to the lack of an FTL drive, but they can be deployed from both capital ships and from the ground.
Overall, the advantages and disadvantages of being a pilot of one of these ships are balanced, but many obviously would prefer to have another ship.
This was a quick 15 minute build during a disassembly session I just had, but I quite like the tiny little thing. It just seems...right to me. Anyway, rate or comment, or do whatever you please.
Neat little swarm fighter. Definitely looks deadly in large numbers. Though I don't think I would like to lose the Lottery, er... be assigned to one of these craft. I prefer larger craft myself. ^Blub^
