Overview

"With their Military lasers and four turrets , Hunters are efficient killers. A favorite of bounty hunters, they are often found prowling the lawless regions for prey."

Hunter is a very fast and agile ship, designed specifically to meet standards set by a group of very successful bounty hunters.

Known variants

Standard
- There is only one type of this ship known to exist, all prowling interplanetary space as bounty hunters.
- It is rumoured that one of the prototypes had four Military lasers, but the energy drain was so high that it crippled the ship.

The Hunter's amazing speed and agility compensate very well the lack of rear gun mount. Four low-yield turrets act as point defense and help in disintegrating foes in close quarter combat. A favoured tactic is to soften up the target first from a distance and then charge in for the kill, letting main gun cool while closing in.

Due to the designers' demands, Hunters can be obtained only in Confederate or more stable high-tech systems. Anyone wishing to purchase one, has to be Clean and at least Competent.
