Z-95SF Headhunter Strike Fighter
The Z-95SF is a strike starfighter variant of the aging Incom/Subpro
Headhunter series. The SF-model features a larger sensor array and a
well-designed heads-up display, as well as the addition of an infrared
designation pod meant to be used in tandem with laser-guided bombs for
precision surgical strikes.
The Imperial Navy maintains a small unit of Z-95SF's on board selected
fighter carriers in the Mid- and Outer-Rims. While the original Headhunter
is relatively out-classed by more modernized starfighters, the Z-95SF
is used to support covert operation units through the use of carefully
coordinated laser-guided bomb strikes.
In addition to improved avionics and weaponry, the Z-95SF features more
powerful engines and an advanced electronic control response system
allowing the fighter to have increased power and maneuverability,
especially in atmospheric conditions. Catheros-Merkin, a prime Imperial
engine contractor, designed a specialized sublight engine that allows
the Z-95SF to have remarkable speed and thrust capabilities, and an
amazing climb rate.
The SF-model features two laser cannons, which are usually used in a
defensive role against other starfighters. Five ordnance hardpoints
support the brunt of the Z-95SF's offensive capabilites. In a covert
strike role, one hardpoint is usually occupied by a laser guided bomb
and another by a fuel tank.
While on LGB strike missions, the Z-95SF can designate its ground
targets from either the fighter's own laser pod or by soldiers on the
ground equipped with a laser-designation device. The effect of these
strikes has been devastating, with the silent and unforseen destruction
of entire city sections and military installations.
