Overview of Craft
Non-Laudean craft are assigned at a number of locations.
6x Lancer-Class Multirole Fighters
6x Peregrine Class Fighter
The Peregrine Fighter was Starfleet's first attempt at a heavy fighter design. It was developed in 2367 and designed to help in fleet actions by causing the enemy vessels to split their fire amongst multiple targets, whilst delivering a powerful punch itself. Capable of a top cruise speed of warp 4.5 it has a similar speed to that of a Valkyrie MKI, allowing it to operate short distances away from its homebase or carrier vessel. However, it is common practice for these vessels to be used at impulse.
2x Valkyrie Mark II Fighter
After the development of new fighter technology, Starfleet decided to modify the Valkyrie Class Fighter, dubbing it the Mark II. If successful, the Mark II fighter would replace aging Mark I models. The Mark II's have received an upgrade to propulsion, weapons, shielding, and defensive capabilities.
Just like the Mark I, the newer Mark II is intended to be used in small groups, where a local shield can be projected and shared by the fighters during an attack run. Each small ship contributes a portion of its resources to the group shield, thereby savings power to divert to weapons and repair systems.
The hull of the spacecraft is painted with a nanoresin containing cultures of a space radiation absorbent material that, when charged with tachyon particles, emits radiation on the same wavelength as the surrounding space, making it much more difficult for a passive sensor scan to detect the fighter. Furthermore, the dark patches on the paint cover small graviton wave projectors. These projectors are used to distort the craft's mass readings, making it appear to be an object of inconsistent mass, similar to an asteroid or debris.
