Description:

INFR1 Tech Room Description

The EAF's primary fighter, the Claymore, is a great example of what a light fighter should be. She can run rings around most of our older units, and her Trident missiles make her a fast nightmare to our Vesuvius units. Although we suspect the Claymore was designed for recon missions, the fighter is a very capable interceptor. The only stumbling block for this nimble machine is its paper-thin shielding and armor.


Inferno Nostos Description

The sleek Claymore forms the heart of the EA's fighter corps. Light, fast and extremely nimble, the Claymore lacks the unique maneuverability of the Mihos but is slightly faster, evening out performance. In the EA-GTVA war the Claymore has claimed more kills than any other Earth fighter, partially due to its numbers, but mostly due to its incredible flight characteristics.

The Claymore has all the strengths--and if you're a GTVA pilot--all the annoying qualities--of the Shivan SF Dragon, and then some. It is fast enough to outrun almost any GTVA fighter, turns on a dime, and has an incredibly small target profile. The Claymore is easily one of the hardest ships to hit in any mod due to its tiny size and thin profile. It's best to forget about guns and just unload Shockers on it and hope they hit.
