The '''GTF ''Perseus''''' was the next generation of intercept fighters used by the [[Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance]] during the [[NTF Rebellion]]. Its first known deployment was in [[Epsilon Pegasi]] where ''Perseus'' fighters deployed from the [[GTD Aquitaine|GTD ''Aquitaine'']] played a pivotal role in the defense of [[Enif Station]] and the destruction of the [[NTD Repulse|NTD ''Repulse'']]. While the ''Perseus'' is considered by the [[GTVA]] to be a high-performance interceptor, its blend of high speed, good maneuverability, moderate firepower, good weapons compatibility, medium armour and above average shielding allows it to be placed in other roles, such as escort, medium assault and surgical strikes against larger ships.
 
 
The '''GTF ''Perseus''''' was the next generation of intercept fighters used by the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance during the [[Second Shivan Incursion]]. The ''Perseus'' was notable for its speed and maneuverability yet it did not lack weapon compatibility or armoring.

The GTF Perseus was the next generation of intercept fighters used by the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance during the NTF Rebellion. Its first known deployment was in Epsilon Pegasi where Perseus fighters deployed from the GTD Aquitaine played a pivotal role in the defense of Enif Station and the destruction of the NTD Repulse. While the Perseus is considered by the GTVA to be a high-performance interceptor, its blend of high speed, good maneuverability, moderate firepower, good weapons compatibility, medium armour and above average shielding allows it to be placed in other roles, such as escort, medium assault and surgical strikes against larger ships.

FS2 Tech Room Description

The GTF Perseus is the newest fighter in the GTVA's arsenal. Slated to replace the aging Valkyrie as the Alliance's primary interceptor, the Perseus's high max speed and maneuverability make it ideal to hunt and destroy enemy bombers. Perseus fighters have been assigned to the 3rd Battle Group on a trial basis, with wide deployment expected after the OpEval period. Primary weapons include the Subach HL-7 and Prometheus cannon, with secondary loads of Harpoon and Hornet missiles. Preliminary results have shown the Perseus to be a superb fighter.

The Perseus, with its speed and maneuverability, is a joy to simply fly, much like the Serapis. Unlike the Serapis, the Perseus can also fight in addition to doing acrobatics. With shielding and armor to let it fight it out on even terms with most space superiority fighters, and better maneuverability, the Perseus is among the best fightercraft available to you as a GTVA pilot.


The best overall craft that you get to fly on a regular basis. Fast, maneuverable, and has enough armor to deal with defence missions as well as attack ones. Definitely an improvement over the old GTF Valkyrie overall, although the afterburner capacity and maximum velocity is noticeably less than its predecessor, which is an important point when talking about interceptors.


Of the playable fast, high maneuverability end fighters, the Perseus is the most useful, the GTF Loki, GTF Ulysses and the stealth fighters all suffer from poor weapon loads and the GVF Thoth, GTF Valkyrie and GVF Serapis have an almost comical inability to take any punishment whatsoever, the Serapis also suffers incompatibility with the GTM Trebuchet, not quite compensated for by GTW Maxim ability, all the moreso for the inability to carry GTW UD-8 Kayser. The GVF Horus is more or less equal in weaponry, but the faster turning, relative toughness and better gun-mounting location of the Perseus serves it better than the Horus's sheer speed does.


Interceptor? No. Think space superiority. The Perseus is a better all-rounder than the Myrmidon and simply a badass ship. It has the right combination of speed, agility, and firepower to crush any other fighter except the Mara and maybe the Tauret. It's fast, it's agile, it has serious firepower, and it's stronger than the FS1 Apollo with its weapons compatibility (despite having the same number of gun mounts and missile capacity, the Perseus has 25 more HP and a faster engine than the Apollo). I would rather fly this than an Erinyes.
