|The UEF Kentauroi|
Blue Planet: War in Heaven Tech Description
The Kentauroi is a heavily armed, high-performance interception and strike platform. At full afterburn, the Kentauroi can outrun almost any other fighter class in the field, and is unrivalled in its ability to perform surgical strike missions against well-defended targets. Despite exceptional theoretical performance, the design suffers from occasional lock-up in its weapon systems. The Kentauroi has seen deployment primarily in Second and Third Fleet, where it is exceptionally popular but unforgiving to new pilots.
The original FTF Jackal had a 2x2x2 primary bank setup with animated parts for the first and third banks. This caused a lot of problems with animating parts becoming stuck and the primary bank being unable to fire as a result. To minimise these issues the first two banks were merged into one, even though the code bug that made the alteration necessary was fixed for the 3.6.12 release.
Kentauroi (Κένταυροι) was the Greek name for the centaurs, mythical creatures that were part human and part horse.
