Lore:The LESU™ or 'Law Enforcement Support Unit' was intially designed to provide planetary police agencies with a more powerful aerial vehicle. While most planetary police forces may only maintain a handful of these exspensive units, Core worlds, especially within the Paladin inner planetary regions rely heavily on this and other similar hover craft. Bethel Industries is a non-alligned company, and therefore many of their designs can be seen all around the galaxy, and several of these atmospheric craft have been used by Colonials as well as terrorist and pirate groups.
The two laser cannons are pivotal and allow the pilot to adjust their arc of fire in several directions, from providing ground support, to firing upon other airborne vehicles. While these craft remain widely available to many factions it is the Paladins who have utilized them the most, incorporatig them in everything from policing duties, to a frontline support with a militarized version boasting improved firepower, better speed, and an increased flight ceiling.
