Overview

"Still extremely dangerous after more than two decades of service, the Corsair model remains popular along the frontier and in lawless areas. Facing a hostile Corsair, your best tactic is to surrender your cargo and hope the pilot is in a friendly mood."

The Corsair is rumoured to have been the backbone of an overly ambitious dictator's armada to be. Once she was killed in a partially successful palace coup, her generals fought each other to become the next ruler, but the resulting civil war was so intense that the whole system collapsed into anarchy. Several Corsair Captains joined various pirate bands that started to fill the power-vacuum in the aftermath, and Corsairs have plagued the spacelanes ever since.

Known variants

As the design is very potent, some more adwanced outlaw shipyards build new Corsairs even today. All who have encountered a Corsair and shomehow survived the encounter, report them to be pirates.

Those who have the means and guts to seek one, can find a Corsair for sale in highest tech anarchies. One can expect to find mostly poorly maintained Corsairs with some of the more advanced systems permanently crippled, but with luck one can stumble upon a well kept specimen that meets the original design standards (as shown in the infobox).
