Wings of Dawn Tech Room Description
The Caliburn is the newest assault fighter available to the LSF fleets. Designed in NC0139, the Caliburn is intended to hold its own in a dogfight while carrying the punch needed to threaten enemy capital ships. Its standard loadout consists of pulsar cannons capable of vaporizing lightly-shielded fighters in a single hit, though the system can be switched out for VX-08 Plasma Cannons depending on mission profile.
The C version comes installed with the superior HBV3P powerplant (as intended for the original design) resulting in improved shield, weapon and afterburner recharge rate. Along with a slight increase in turn rate. All Caliburn fighters in the fleet are planned to be refitted with this generator.
The reflective armor fitted on the Caliburn type-C is effective at absorbing hits from energy-based weapons, but is considerably less durable against solid projectiles.
