The GTB Diana was a very old light bomber introduced before the Terran-Vasudan War. The Diana appears in Twist of Fate and is obsolescent even at the very beginning. The Diana was replaced by the GTB Athena in 2335.

Description:

Twist of Fate Demo Tech Room Description

The GTB Diana is an aging but well-loved workhorse of the GTA fleet. The Diana is a light bomber, nearly as fast and maneuverable as a fighter. The Diana was designed for hit and run attacks as well as tactical strikes against enemy positions or incapacitating enemy warships so that friendly capital ships may attack unchallenged. The Diana does not carry heavy bombs, but its usefulness as a tactical unit is not to be underestimated. The Diana is slated to be replaced by the new GTB Athena, which is currently in testing.

More or less a pile of junk. It's slower, weaker, and less agile than the Athena and has even less weapons compatibility and no true bombs. This is an old ship, older than the Apollo, and in Twist of Fate it's little more than target practice when the Fifth Columnists drag it out. You can fly it in a couple of missions, and it's good for achieving a bonus objective, but that's about it.
