Myrmidon class Pocket Warship (32ndCentury, pure IS tech)
« on: 08 December 2023, 23:36:02 »
Fits somewhere between the Dragau, Tiamat, and the Interdictor, although is fast enough to keep up with an Interdictor - if only whenever the Interdictor is cruising and not going flat out - however it can match a few of the heaviest ASFs too.

Weakness(es):
Minimal AMS coverage
While it technically has SubCap weaponry, its only armed enough to take on other dropships. Actually facing a true warship would get this killed in moments.
Only good for space/high-altitude engagements, as it has no 'Mech or ConVehicle support stored aboard.
Weak aft coverage

Strengths:
Basically is a Heavy/Assault fighter from hell. Great-grandpappy A-10 Warthog would be crying tears of joy.
Decent, but not overwhelmingly so, amount of parasite ASFs stored aboard: 12.
Outside of its L-AMS issues, has a layered 'onion' defensive fire setup.
80% of its armament faces forward or to the sides & forward.
