DESCRIPTION:

   The Badger-class Starfury was a long range fighter-bomber used by Earthforce during the Earth-Minbari War.

   Similar in design to the SA-23E model Starfury, the Badger employed the same four arm mounted multi-directional engine pod design that allows for a high degree of maneuvrability, while keeping the flight crew as close to the centre, thereby minimising the effect of G-forces on the crew while performing extreme manoeuvres.

   Unlike the SA-23E however, the Badger features a two person crew, seated abreast at the front of the fighter's elongated fuselage.

GAME NOTES:

*BOMB RACKS: The bomb racks are the main weapon and mission purpose of the Badger Starfury.  With this weapon, the Badger can lay waste to other fighter starfighter scale transports and other craft, as well as deliver ordnance assaults upon starfighter and capital scale installations, such as space stations of various size and scale, including various kinds of "space fortress" facilities.  Though meant to be used against stationary targets, in the hands of a skilled pilot/gunner, could also be used against moving targets.  A well placed bomb could lay waste to a flight of other starfighters in tight formation, or be droped on an unaware capital starship if it can get close enough.

Variants

   With the Badger's elongated hull, the removal of its bomb racks would make it an ideal light personnel shuttle or light cargo transport.  A civilain version could easily be sold with no weapons and a degree of empty space in the cargo section, perhaps with weaker thrust engines (not military grade).  A properly modified Badger Starfury could be equipped for long range transportation and easily be used as a person's personal transport shuttle and could make ranged trips through Hyperspace from gate to gate for longer periods of time, days or weeks as compared to the short ranged jumps normal Starfuries could take.

Notes

   Like the Olympus class corvette, the Badger-class Starfury was designed by Tim Earls for the TV Movie "In the Beginning", though unlike the Olympus it never made it to screen.

   The design of the Badger has often been mistaken for the Heavy Starfury briefly glimpsed at in "A Voice in the Wilderness, Part II"; though it is also a two-seater Starfury, it's an unrelated design.
