The GVF Serapis


The GVF Serapis was the mainstay interceptor fighter for the Vasudan navy after its development following the Great War.

Description:

FS2 Tech Room Description

Fast and highly maneuverable, the GVF Serapis is primarily used as a bomber interceptor. Its thin armor and weak shields give it a low survival rate in dogfights against more heavily armored fighters. Despite having only two primary and secondary weapon banks, the Serapis has been retrofitted to accommodate almost any loadout in the GTVA arsenal. Veteran Vasudan pilots love the Serapis for its agility and loadout options. Some Terran pilots who've been privileged enough to fly it claim to prefer it to any Terran fighter.

Developer Notes

None

Veteran Comments

The Serapis is classed as (and perhaps worse, deployed as if it were) a space superiority fighter, but don't let that fool you. This is in fact a civilian ultralight for airshows. While that sounds harsh, it is unfortunately rather true. A joy to simply fly thanks to its speed and manuverablity, the Serapis is also disturbingly fragile, at least as much so as the FS1-era GTF Valkyrie if not more so. The Serapis has an extremely high attrition rate in combat.

The Serapis is a light interceptor which was not designed to survive in prolonged battles. Those who liked flying the GVF Horus or the GVF Thoth will probably like this fighter as it is superior to its predecessors. The main strength of the Serapis is its weapon compatibility. A pilot who prefers intercepting fighters to doing heavy assault will most likely prefer this during the Vasudan missions.

It is to be noted that most Terran interceptors have better combat performance.

I mainly choose this during the Vasudan campaign because it can use a greater range of guns than most other Vasudan fighters.
