|The GTF Hercules|
The Hercules was first introduced during the Great War and flew several successful missions against the Shivans, being a mainstay of the Terran fleet. Later during the NTF Rebellion the Neo-Terra Front used the Hercules as their mainstay fighter, as well as the GTF Loki.
The sequel of this class was the GTF Hercules Mark II with increased agility and secondary loadout at the expense of having only four primary guns.
FS1 Tech Room Description
The GTF Hercules is the slowest and most unmanageable fighter in the fleet. This is offset, however, by its overpowering weaponry and shielding. It carries 6 primary weapons, as well as two full secondary banks. This heavy assault fighter is best suited for small target attacks and bomber escort.
FS2 Tech Room Description
The old workhorse of the Terran fleet, the Hercules is a beloved but aging design. It was the mainstay of the Terran forces during the Great War, but it is slowly being phased out of the modern fleet. As they are replaced by Herc IIs, Myrmidons, and other recent designs, Hercules fighters are increasingly relegated to training and guard duties far from the front lines. Pilots who've flown Hercs for years love the ship's heavy armor and firepower and have learned to compensate for its low speed and poor maneuverability. The old Hercs are still widely used by NTF forces.
Low max velocity offset by its tremendous offensive capabilities. High weapon capacity.
Hercules is the Latin name for Herakles, son of Zeus. Hercules is a symbol of masculinity and action. He was an esteemed and powerful warrior, and it is said that "he made the world safe for mankind."
