Description: The Tempest is a new addition to the Imperial Navy. It's a sleek 2-man gunboat with a cockpit resembling the one in the Lambda-class shuttle, and long downward-bending wings. It's bow houses two linked laser cannons, two linked heavy ion cannons are located in the wingtips and both wings house a launch tube for missiles/torpedoes/rockets. There is also a double laser cannon turret in the cockpit section, facing backwards. The Tempest was already completed at the time of the Batlle of Endor, but it wasn't deployed to fleets until over a year had passed. It's purpose is to allow assault operations deep into enemy territories, without having to deploy capital ships. Also, Tempest gunships armed with heavy rockets are deployed to some capital ships to enhance their ability to fight enemy capital ships and battle stations, and to allow complicated tactics incorporating multiple attack waves from several directions etc. The Empire has already deployed several elite units into enemy territories, in order to harass supply traffic and strike at production facilities. These fleets usually consist of a small capital ship, several non-combat supply ships and a squadron of Tempest gunboats.
