SF Gorgon


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.
