GVF Ennead


INFR1 Tech Room Description

The fastest ship ever built, the Ennead is essentially an afterburner with guns. Very poorly shielded, this refined interceptor is useless in most dogfights. Where she excels is the interception of bombers, as her incredible afterburner velocity is completely unmatched by regular propulsion systems.

Veteran Comments

Please read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.

As it can be easily deduced by looking at the Ennead's parameters, this fighter truly is a mere "afterburner with guns". Just like certain fighters like the Serapis or Manticore, the Ennead should not join prolonged battles because of its thin armor and relatively weak shields, so it should be used to intercept bombers, only, although its weapon compatibility somewhat ensures the possibility of carrying out moderate anti-subsystem strikes.

In any case, an Ennead should not stay close to hostile warships armed with effective anti-spacecraft missile or beam batteries because they'd easily exploit the fighter's weaknesses in no time.
