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.

Developer Notes

Excellent for hit-and-run bombing. Good speed for its size, with a high capacity afterburner reserve.

Veteran Comments

I always wanted to love the Athena, but it's lack of a any serious anti-cap ship capablity made it a non-choice when going against anything bigger than a transport. - Eishtmo
