Lochaber-Class Attack Fighter

The Lochaber is an Attack Fighter, larger than the standard anti-fighter Screening or Escort Fighter, but still smaller than the 50-ton Heavy Fighter. Fast and well-armed with a crew of two, its spinal X-Ray laser is capable of forcing a critical on any ship under 1000 tons with less than AV:150 hull armour.

The fighter has external slings for either four normal half-ton missiles, or eight quarter-ton Dart missiles. Whilst these are carried the fighter is unstreamlined and is limited in manoevrability. The drives are limited ot 5G, and each G-turn burned uses up 1.15 G-turns of fuel. Alternatively, with missiles embarked, consider the fighter to carry 52 G-turns of reaction mass.
