Description:

FSPort Tech Room Description

(minimally changed from Dark's original)

The first encounter with the SF Gorgon was made by the GTD Saratoga in the Ikeya system. We are uncertain if this is a new Shivan design or if the Shivans have simply held this particular class of ship back for the majority of the war. The ship's unusual design not only provides it with exceptional maneuverability, but also allows it to generate an extremely powerful shield. So far these ships have only been sighted leading wings of lesser fighters, but there have been reports of entire wings of Gorgons in larger forces.

Little else is known about the Gorgon. It should be considered a class B threat when acting as a wing leader, but a full wing of Gorgons is to be treated as a class A threat to all allied vessels.

INFR1 Tech Room Description

The Gorgon is a truly nightmarish opponent. Incredibly well-specified, it has multiple gunmounts and secondary banks to devastate enemies. The Gorgon is the best Shivan fighter we've seen to date, although it appears to be carried only on bigger warships for critical attack and escort duties. The Gorgon is extremely well protected against our weapons, with shields and armor that far exceed bomber specs, yet do not impact its superb flight performance. Pilots are advised to employ Arrow and Sniper missiles to take it down quickly.

Veteran Comments

Read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.


Appears in a variety of mods, and is infuriating to fight in all of them. Combine the firepower of an Erinyes, the agility of a Scorpion, and the durability of a Nephilim and you have some idea of how absurdly powerful this ship is. It may be stupidly overpowered, but at least it looks stylish (especially for a retail-compatible model) while it kicks your ass.


The Gorgon appears in FSPort. It does, however, have a small weakness: its subsystems are vulnerable due to its small size.


To be perfectly honest I found the Dragon harder to kill. At least I could hit Gorgons.


Considering that this was one of the first fanmade models ever released -- before FS2 even came out, no less -- it's aged remarkably well.
