The VE Fighter


Description

Tech Room Description

A Vorlon fighter is bigger than an average Earth Alliance fighter craft. This does not make it an easy target to kill however, as the fighter is very maneuverable and fast due to it's gravimetric engine system and very powerful beam weapon. Succesful encounters when hostile, zero. Our recent records have confirmed that the fighter is capable of forming it's own jump point.

The most powerful fighter in the universe. When controlling one of these ships remember to start firing before you have the enemy in your sights as your lightning cannon will take a while to charge. Never make yourself an easy target for a Vorlon fighter because when used on you this same lightning cannon will probably destroy you in a single shot.

This thing is terrifying. One shot and you're done for. There's really no "right" way to fight a Vorlon fighter; you can only hope it doesn't get the chance to fire at you.

Vidmaster says: There is a right way to fight this craft. While always superior when engaged directly from the bow, the Vorlon fighter can be evaded by most other fighters. As long as you stay away from the front and the deadly beam cannon, you are actually always going to win. The challenge is to survive the initial approach and since most combat scenarios start with fighters intercepting each other, this is easier said than done.
