Wings of Dawn Tech Room Description
The Caliburn is the newest assault fighter available to the LSF fleets. Designed in NC0139, the Caliburn is intended to hold its own in a dogfight while carrying the punch needed to threaten enemy capital ships. Its standard loadout consists of pulsar cannons capable of vaporizing lightly-shielded fighters in a single hit, though the system can be switched out for VX-08 Plasma Cannons depending on mission profile. Due to a contractor conflict with the powerplant provider Zeonic, the Caliburn has been temporary fitted with a less powerful powerplant. Combat tests have revealed that the current powerplant is insufficient to power the craft's systems, resulting in slow capacitor recharge rates for both shield and weapons. It is expected that a refit with rectify this issue shortly.
The reflective armor fitted on the Caliburn is effective at absorbing hits from energy-based weapons, but is considerably less durable against solid projectiles.
