Capsule: "Talon"

These ships were designed at Omars 'Black Market' and produced by a small outer rim company, Veritech Inc. owned by Omar. The main design team was comprised of  Verpine with consultation  from the Sluissi. They are fast and maneuverable, and have good shielding and armor. They are also highly effective in close combat due to the HEMP ion cannon in the rear, when an enemy gets in their six and up close, the HEMP lets lose. Even if the HEMP does not disable the attacker, a few hundred shots emanating from the rear of the craft is enough almost any antagonist. These snub fighters make up the bulk of Omars defense force, protecting his various interests. They lack the heavy hitting power of missiles or torpedoes, they are excellent dog fighters, capable of engaging and eliminating most fighters.

The interior is about as roomy as a snub fighter gets.  The Talon is more comfortable to fly than most standard ships.  Every control is ergonomically placed and crafted to improve pilot comfort. Like all the ships at Omars these come with our deluxe survival kit

Mission Profile and Design Considerations:

The talon Is the main fighter comprising of 60% of Omars Defense Fleet.   They were designed as a dogfighter.  They are not optimized to engage capitol scale targets. They are extremely effective in close combat due to the  H.E.M.P. Light Ion Cannon. If an enemy craft gets into the rear firing arc of the Talon, they are easily targeted by the hemp ion canon and are easily disabled. Even if they are out of range, seeing hundreds of ion cannon blasts coming straight in is usually enough to discourage rear shots, adding to the survivability rate of the Talon.  The Ion cannons are from salvaged Y-wing fighters, and are easy to maintain and replace. The 4 ion engines [2 located in each wing] are from salvaged Tie fighters giving the Talon a very distinctive sound.  Solar panels on the wings give extra power to supplement the main generator.
