Overview

Built in large numbers, the Phoenix earns its name by being built from reconditioned components, and the chopped hulls of salvaged wrecks and abandoned ships, a ship literately born from the wreckage of shot-up hulls. Thusly, the ship exhibits design features found in practically all craft in service.

Its most unique feature, the outboard drives - reverse-engineered from the units found on Imperial Couriers - is the source of the ship's outstanding speed performance... and its greatest weakness. The rotors extend beyond the ship's forward shield, leaving them vulnerable to directed attack. Shooting them off can damage the ship. Fortunately, few combateers are accurate enough with lasers to take advantage of this Achilles' heel.

Despite this critical flaw, the performance and missile loadout capability of up to 10 warheads of this capable multi-role craft attracts bounty hunters looking to improve their income by salvaging the spilt cargo of their prey... and pirates looking to match hit-and-run tactics with high offensive capability.
