20t Firebolt-class Light Fighter

Firebolt-class Light Fighter
Tech Level 11

A relatively low-tech, long-endurance fighter that still manages to pack a heavy punch, the Firebolt design is expected to enter service with Glira Divoni militaries in the next 18 months. While many fighters are designed for short-duration high-speed operations and of a relatively flimsy construction, the Firebolt takes another path: heavy armor, relatively low-acceleration (though still faster than any jump-capable spacecraft) but with a weapon able to damage any fighter (or spacecraft), and to patrol (with two pilots) for up to a week at a time. This unusual design would not be the most efficient for most carriers, but the Firebolt is intended to be used for in-system patrol, not equipping jump carriers (which Glira Divoni doesn’t possess). It should be an effective counter to pirates and raiders, however.
