Lizard Swarmercraft


Tech Room Description

The Swarmercraft has been the light fighter craft of the empire since the ancient times. They are cheap to produce and of sufficient quality to generally secure the pilot's safe return after each mission. Lighter armour and weaponry, though, does mean that these craft must fight in groupings of atleast 3 for optimal guarentee of victory.

The Lerzidi Swarmer-class is oriented towards capital ship assault. Armed with only a single Mega Particle Cannon, is unable to effectively engage fighters, but can punch holes through capital ships. It is armed with a single missile bank for limited anti-fighter defense. The Swarmer is propelled by a phase-impulse drive system, giving it minimal engine profile and freedom of motion along all three axes, though it is unable to 'afterburn' as a result.

Veteran Comments

Please read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.

No table file came with the original model, and the original POF had a few collision/centering errors, which were fixed in the version found in Dimensional Eclipse.

In Dimensional Eclipse, these things have essentially instant acceleration and the same maximum speed in all three axes, and will pull off the strangest physics-defying flight patterns when threatened. Extremely annoying to hit, especially while they're slowly shortening your escort list. Aspect-seeking missiles are generally wasted against them, as they will simply twitch-dodge to one side to avoid them. In the early escort missions, these are what will kill your capital ships, not the bombers which only carry anti-shield bombs.
