LSF Ray MkIII in Wings of Dawn


Wings of Dawn Tech Room Description

The third installment of the Ray line began production in NC0118, 34 years after the end of the Terran-Cyrvan war, and has served as the mainstay fighter of the LSF for 27 years. Unlike its predecessors, the Ray III was never intended as a platform for new technologies - its design was intended to be a cheap, multipurpose dogfighter. Its modular design allows maximum compatibility with the most current weapon systems. While versatile due to great weapons compatibility, the Ray III is not the most adaptable fighter once deployed due to only having a single primary and secondary bank.

The LSF Ray MkIII as it will be seen in the upcoming Wings of Dawn 2

The reflective armor fitted on the Ray III is effective at absorbing hits from energy-based weapons, but is considerably less durable against solid projectiles.

Please read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.

Not too shabby for a starting ship, especially considering the alternatively slow and clumsy LSF Caliburn. However, as soon as you complete Life of a Test Pilot, you will want to start using the LSF Ray MkIII-E or LSF Ray MkIII-W you got right away and ditch the original, as these two have more emphasized strengths and have weapons compatibilities to the more powerful weapons later on.
