TF Falcon


Description:

TVWP Tech Room Description

The Falcon has been a common fleet fighter for many years now. Named for its shape, the Falcon is highly maneuverable and can perform effectively in multiple roles, although not as well as some of its newer counterparts. In non-military capacities, the Falcon can be seen defending stations from space debris or breaking up large asteroids for miners to analyze.

Originally the Falcon was nothing more than a retextured Amazon model with the same ridiculously high moment-of-inertia values. This made for a slow, easy-to-hit deathtrap of a fighter. However, in the actual campaign release the Falcon is a decent midline fighter without exceptional strengths or weaknesses. "Decent" is being a bit too charitable. The Falcon is sluggish, has extremely loose handling even by TVWP standards, and has no afterburner. I'd rather take the Mustang Alpha or even the Shrike over this bucket of bolts.
