Tech Room Description
Stronger, tougher, and able to attack with greater firepower, the Badger is a heavy strike StarFury. Using the basic design of the Aurora Starfury and adding additonal weapons and armor plating, the Badger can in numbers, succesfully attack a hostile capital ship and disable or destroy it. Badgers, however, are not as powerful in practice as they are on paper. Earth Alliance heavy cruisers conventionally link firepower with their heavy assault fighters in order to cause critical damage to an enemy ship before using the main guns of the cruiser to destroy their target. Badgers are equipped with a rear turret for self defense and are less agile than other StarFury variants.
The BomberFury. The Badger is a fighter-bomber and the designation of attack fighter suits it well. It makes up for its lack of bomb reloads with the impressively destructive 60mm Pulse mounts. The Badger is not as bad a dogfighter as most Freespace bombers, and can hold its own reasonably well if unescorted.
