Capsule: By far the oldest of the assault vehicles used by the Keltarrin Protectorate, the Trailblazer is also one of the most durable, reliable, and easily maintained command vehicles in the galaxy. The first word that comes to most beings' minds when they get their first look at a Trailblazer is "ugly". Resembling a flying brick, these craft are certainly not designed for aesthetics. What they are designed for, however, is survivability under adverse combat conditions and in this role they excel. With a respectable flight speed, decent handling capabilities, and a hull made of 10 centimeter thick biphase carbide alloy the Trailblazer can survive amazing amounts of punishment and run away from what it can't survive. The craft's only weakness is the low range of it's weapons systems. The four quad turbolasers and fourteen pulse lasers have excellent punch and penetration value but are sadly lacking in range. This is offset slightly by the excellent sensor package that the Trailblazer carries which can often give early warning of approaching danger before said danger is within optimal firing range. The Keltarrin Protectorate is currently looking into the feasibility of upgrading the existing Trailblazers since replacing them with an entirely new vehicle would be a budgeting and planning nightmare.
