Description: Dating back to the founding days of the Old Republic or perhaps even earlier, the Preor fighter was one of the first space combat vehicles ever built. The simplicity of the technology used, means that even the most poorly educated engineer can repair and maintain these vessels (+2D to Tech when working on this class of vessel, due to its low technology), but this advantage is also its weakness, titanium armour, directed thrust engines and a Rail Cannon make this vessel dated now. The Rotary Rail Cannon fired ferrous slugs towards targets at high velocities, the rotary system allows the weapon to fire again quickly even though the reloading of each barrel takes a few moments as the projectiles are carried from the ammunition cannister on the opposite wing of the vessel. This cannister carries 70 of the 80 projectile ammunition of the rail cannon, and can be jettisoned to improve the fighters manueverability by +1. These fighters are very ancient now and are extremely rare, and even rarer to be found in use although their tiny price and effective weapon make them useful to those who are truly desperate.
