LSF Caliburn-C



Description:

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.

'HBV3P' Fusion Powerplant, output rated at 13580 kW
Maximum forward velocity: 65
180-degree turn time Yaw: 2.55 seconds
180-degree turn time Pitch: 2.7 seconds
Hull armor strength rated at 1600
7th Generation 'LoNM-1000' heavy fighter shield generator, strength rated at 2500

An improvement over the original Caliburn in terms of usability. While not much has changed statistically, it does now have maneuverability on par with the Myrmidon now. It also has a faster shield and weapons energy regeneration too, helping it be more survivable. For missions where speed isn't too much of a worry, this may be a good choice for you.
