Fighters

From UniWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Fighters are frigate-sized drones that do cruiser-sized damage and can only be fielded by carriers and supercarriers, while heavy fighters can only be used by supercarriers. Capital ships can only use fighters, they cannot use subcapital drones (light, medium, heavy, and sentry drones).

There are 3 types of fighters: Light (Anti-Subcapital), Heavy (Anti-Capital), and Support (EWAR). Each has a Tech 1 and Tech 2 variant, and squadron size. Light fighters and heavy fighters are further split between the roles they perform. Each type of fighter has a squadron size that determines how many individual fighters make up a squadron, and each carrier or supercarrier is limited by how many launch tubes exist for squadrons. Fighters are a lot larger, in volume, than drones. The skill Icon skillbook2.png Fighter Hangar Management increases fighter hangar size by 5% per level.

All fighters are capable of warping, and will pursue a target into warp - the only escape from fighters is to jump system or to dock. Fighters cannot receive remote assistance, such as repairs or shield boosting.

Each race has each its own fighters, and their damage matches the race's primary damage type, but otherwise they are very similar to each other. In order to use fighters you need to train Icon skillbook2.png Fighters (5% damage bonus per level).

Light Fighters

Light fighters require the skill Icon skillbook2.png Light Fighters (5% bonus in light fighter velocity per level). Tech 2 light fighters requires Light Fighters IV.

Attack Fighters

Attack fighters are general purpose attack craft, equipped with a faction-specific primary weapon (i.e., blaster cannon, pulse cannon, autocannon) with a short barrel length that is inaccurate against small, fast-moving targets. Their secondary weapon is a Heavy Rocket Salvo - a simplified, significantly shorter ranged version of starship launched Heavy Missiles. Also, they are equipped with a Microwarpdrive that increase base speed by 500%, at the cost of a 500% signature radius increase, with a 60-second cooldown.

Space Superiority

Space Superiority fighters are anti-drone and anti-fighter weapons. Their primary weapons, Micro Missile Swarm, can launch a swarm of missiles that are especially apt at destroying fighter and drone craft. However, very little damage is applied to full-sized ships. Defensively, they can enact evasive manuevers that increases its base speed by 200%, reduces the its signature radius by 80%, and increases all shield resists by 50%. Lastly, they can use their stasis webifiers to reduce the velocity of small craft by 4%.

Heavy Fighters

Heavy Fighters are anti-capital-ship fighters, and can only be used by supercarriers. Each race has its own heavy fighter, but aside from the different damage types, they are very similar to each other. Additionally, there is a Sansha faction heavy fighter (the Shadow), which does more damage than the Tech 1 heavy fighters, but is ludicrously expensive.

Heavy fighters need the Heavy Fighters skill (5% damage increase per level), while Tech 2 heavy fighters requires the skill Heavy Fighters IV.

Heavy Attack

Heavy Attack fighters use a faction specific primary weapon (i.e., blaster, artillery, pulse, or autocannon), while their secondary weapon is a very high damage Torpedo Salvo. Additionally, they possess a Microwarpdrive that increases base speed by 500% and signature radius by 500%, with a 60-second cooldown.

Long Range Attack

Long Range Attack fighters have faction specific long-range weaponary (i.e, beam cannon, railgun, and artillery), a Micro Jump Drive, and are capable of launching unguided bombs (much like stealth bombers). Usage of these bombs are disallowed in Low Security space.

Support Fighters

Support fighters are specialized fighters that each perform their own type of EWAR. Support fighters require the Support Fighters skill (5% increase in support fighter hit-points per level). Tech 2 support fighters requires Support Fighters IV.
