|GTF Perseus Advanced
INFR1 Tech Room Description
The Advanced Perseus is one of only two Capella-era fighters left in service. However, unlike the SOC's Advanced Artemis, this interceptor was customized by Nankam Aeronautical for increased speed and firepower. Because it's a top-notch interceptor, the Advanced Perseus is equipped with high-capacity weapon energy and afterburner fuel reserves for top performance over an extended period. The ship is equipped with a single fire-controlled, quad-linked cannon system, and three missile batteries.
Quadruple Hastors (the default loadout available with this ship in the INF R1 campaign, and by far the best choice) will shred pretty much anything in the Perseus Advanced's path as long as you have sufficient juice. The quad Hastors combined with the large missile capacity and strong shields make it a somewhat unbalanced craft. Despite the Hastor's low shield damage (its performance resembles the Maxim
in some regards), the sheer volume of fire being put out by this ship with crush anything short of a Nephilim
and unshielded ships like freighters will be annihilated. The quad-linked primary bank leaves you with only one weapon slot, so don't take this ship into battle if you want to disable, rather than destroy your target.
