CoW Tech Room Description
The Aurora is a heavily adapted variant of the Perseus and the old Valkyrie class interceptors. Although similar in performance - albeit slightly faster -the Aurora is purpose built to use 30% less hanger space - extremely useful for the cramped Agamenmon fighterbay.

General: It flies like the Perseus, even a little better, but the Aurora has a noticeable drop in durability. While not made of cardboard and glue like a Serapis, the Aurora is not quite the perfect blend of speed, maneuverability, and durability that the Perseus is.
However, it has six guns, which makes it a credible next-generation interceptor fighter. I dare go as far as calling it a space superiority.
Casualties of War: The best fighter out of the bunch, the Aurora can hold its own in player hands, being classified as an interceptor. Place the Prometheus S in the second bank (which is a 4-mount setup) and you'll be able to kill most Vasudan fighters in a matter of shots. In here, it has more gun energy and missile capacity than its Blue Planet counterpart.
Blue Planet: The Aurora is slightly larger than and less maneuverable than a GTF Perseus. On the other hand you have a fighter that is as fast as the Perseus, but with six guns and 10 more shields. You'd be better off taking a Perseus to a dogfight, but the Aurora can hold its own. The Aurora along with newer fighters like the GTF Atalanta and the Alliance standard Perseus is one of the few Alliance fighters that can dogfight UEF fighters and have a chance of winning. Compared to the Myrmidon the Aurora is less maneuverable and significantly less tough, travels at roughly the same speeds, has a similar weapons payload, but the Myrmidon is so much larger that the Aurora is probably a better choice.
The Aurora is often seen in War in Heaven
setting up SSM strikes, which makes taking them out of the utmost importance.
