Starfuries

The Earth Alliance Starfury-class fighters are uniquely designed for space
combat. With the pilot(s) located in the center, and four engines located at
the end of four "wings", the Starfury is amazingly manueverable. The Pilot
"stands up" in the cockpit, which is the best position for most accelerations.
The design itself is not very new, it existed before the war, but upgrades
are continually made.

There are 4 known types of Starfuries:

The standard light Starfury is basically the same model as the one used in
the war, but with some upgrades. It is lightly armed and protected, but very
quick and manueverable. The stats are as follows:

The heavy Starfury is a two-seater (the gunner is positioned looking back)
that is better armed and protected, but slower than the light Starfury. The
stats are the same as the light Starfury with the exception of the following:

        Crew: 1; Gunners: 1; Skeleton: 1/+5
        Space: 8
        Hull: 4D
        2 Mass Driver Cannons (fire-linked)
                Fire Arc: Front
                Crew: 1
                Fire Control: 2D
                Space Range: 1-3/12/25
                Atmosphere Range: 100-300/1.2/2.5 km
                Damage: 6D

The Black Omega Starfuries are advanced models that are stealthier. They are
are mostly used on "sensitive" missions, and are always piloted by members
of Psi-Corps. They are easily recognized by the white omega letter painted
on top. The stats are the same as the light Starfury with the exception of
the following:

        Sensor Mask: +2D to sensor operator's difficulty to detect Starfury.

The newest Starfury derivative is the Thunderbolt. It is very different from
the "normal" starfuries in that it is much more aerodynamic, capable of
atmospheric flight as well as space flight. It has wings mounted on the
engines that are folded out during atmospheric flight. It is also equipped
with a powerful rapid fire cannon, and it has a crew of two, with the co-
pilot sitting behind the pilot. The stats are the same as the light Starfury
with the exception of the following:

        Craft: Earth Alliance Thunderbolt
        Length: 15 meters
        Crew: 1; Gunners: 1; Skeleton: 1/+5
        Manuverability: 4D+2
        Space: 11

        Hull: 3D+2

                Fire Arc: Front
                Crew: 1
                Fire Rate: 2
                Fire Control: 2D
                Space Range: 1-3/12/25
