Mirage Gunboat

For ages the Empire struggled with a capable space and atmospheric fighter
combination, toying with the TIE/gt (which was the precursor of the TIE
Bomber intended for pin-point surface strikes), the TIE/gs (an extremely
limited production line that was designed to support ground troops during a
combat action) and the TIE/ae (which came close to the Empire's goal of a
combination space/atmospheric fighter but was discontinued for a number of
reasons). Wereling Spaceworks, a small time corporation based out of the
Palvar Sector in the Mid Rim has come up with a new concept design for an
effective space/atmospheric fighter, the SF/A-130 Mirage-class gunboat.

The SF/A-130 "Mirage" was mainly a pet project adopted by Wereling CEO,
Hesst Nal. Wereling had no real use for a standardized multi-enviroment
fighter as its corporate defense force did not engage in many conflicts.
The Mirage gunboat was intended to be a highly advanced starfighter to be
deployed to the Wereling's top fighter squadron, the Blood Aces.

The Mirage is an over-powered weapons platform intended to take on almost
any combat role. It features four fire-linked laser cannons mounted in a
line just in front of the cockpit on top of the nose, two twin ion cannons
mounted on either side of the ship and a concussion missile launcher mounted
on the ship's ventral side.

During atmospheric flight the Mirage relies on its three wings (the side
wings fold up when the ship is not in operation) and its four ion engines
for propulsion. To augment its atmospheric speed the Mirage is equipped with
extra repulsorlift drives, or as the pilots like to call them, "repulsor-
afterburners."

The Mirage also features a single hardpoint along the ventral side of the
ship, just behind the missile launcher, that can be used to mount additional
weaponry, sensor pods, fuel pods, ECM pods or whatever else the ship may
require. In standard operation, the Mirage is equipped a Mestic ECM pod.

Currently there are only thirteen Mirage gunboats in existance, twelve of
those belong to Wereling's Blood Ace starfighter squadron, the other is the
personal property of Hesst Nal.
