Description: The Manticore fighter is the fastest known craft in the Shivan armada. With a single, powerful laser and two missile banks, it is a dangerous offensive weapon. Its Achilles' heel lies in its thin hull and weak shields. Manticores do not last long in dogfights against other fighters. They prefer to target bombers, which are nearly helpless against the Manticore's speed and weaponry.

the Manticore has two laser banks, on the tips of each of its "arms" and two missile banks, on the bottom of the fuselage.

this is obvious from the image, as well as actual Freespace gameplay.

The text is straight from the TechRoom vessel description in Freespace 2.

Guess that Volition made a mistake.
