|The GTB Athena|
The GTB Athena (dubbed the "Lightning Bomber") is a Terran light bomber introduced during the opening stages of the Great War. Although unable to carry the heavier anti-capital warheads, the Athena is the favored delivery vehicle for the anti-subsystem Stiletto missile, making it highly effective for surgical strikes.
Being the lightest bomber of all known Terran bombers, the Athena provided a reasonably effective deterrence to hostile fighters, and has on more than one occasion been mistaken for a fighter.
FS1 Tech Room Description
The smallest bomber in the fleet, the Athena has oftentimes been mistaken for a fighter. However, one should not be fooled by its small size. The Athena can carry light bombs, and most missiles. It also has the ability to dogfight well. Its strong shielding and hull make it the favored "Lightning Bomber" of the GTA.
Excellent for hit-and-run bombing. Good speed for its size, with a high capacity afterburner reserve.
In Greek mythology, Athena is the goddess of heroic endeavor, and the daughter of Zeus. Athena was also a companion, or simply helper, of many other Greek mythological heroes like Heracles. It is said that Athena was warlike, much like Ares, her half-brother.
