|The UEF Lao Tze|
Blue Planet: War in Heaven Tech Description
Ever since its first deployment, the Lao Tze fighter has become synonymous with the White Guard, a paramilitary order akin to the Fedayeen whose elite knights use this craft as their vehicle of choice in missions assigned directly by the Elders. The Lao Tze is a heavy fighter of controversial design, sacrificing pilot safety for extreme manoeuvrability. Very few pilots can pilot this craft in combat conditions without blacking out due to the G-forces at play. The Lao Tze is equipped with the unique Cavalier cannon, capable of penetrating even the toughest of armor, and is usually reserved for the rare occasions where Lao Tze's are tasked to defend their targets against heavy enemy assaults.

Lao Tze (also Laozi, Lao Tse, Laocius and other variations) was a philosopher of ancient China and a central figure of Taoism. He is traditionally regarded as the author of the Tao Te Ching, a classical Taoist text. The "Three Treasures of the Tao" (compassion, moderation and humility) have been considered some of his most poignant teachings.
