TF Kestrel


TVWP Tech Room Description

The Kestrel has just recently become available to LR pilots following the successful seizure of its blueprints from the PRM eight months ago. Heavily armored and capable of carrying the deadliest weaponry, this ship excels in assault missions. Although it is slower and less maneuverable than the Mustang Alpha, the Kestrel more than makes up for it in sheer firepower.

The heaviest of the TVWP fighters, with strong armor and large countermeasure stores. Pre-Great War missiles are easily decoyed, which makes the Kestrel nearly immune to guided secondary weapons. Whether you consider this or the Mustang Alpha to be the best of the early TVWP fighters is a matter of preference. The former is better armored while the latter is more agile.
