GTF Cyone


INFR1 Tech Room Description

The Cyone-class interceptor takes elements of the old Hercules Mark 2 and Loki fighters and combines them into a modern day, high performance multirole craft. With a huge loadout capacity and excellent afterburner speed, the fighter is suited to both recon and assault missions. However, its weapons compatibility is limited only to mainstream weapons.

If you needed a missile platform like the Ares but as fast as a Loki, this is the ship. Boasting exceptional secondary capacity, you can basically fire Arrow missiles on end.

The gun setup is awkward if you're not firing in linked mode, as the firing points are on the sides of the cockpit, but if you fire in linked mode, it'll serve well. Doubles as a good bomb interception ship, given you put a Mace on it.

The above gun setup is like this: XX - O - YY, where X is gun mount 1 and Y is gun mount 2, and O is the cockpit. It's not like most retail fighters that would have a XY - O - YX configuration.
