Overview

A Gecko heavy fighter based on the technology of a wrecked Green Gecko. While not as advanced as the original this ship could be a fearsome combatant. By copying some of the hi-tech from Avernus Orbital the design includes 4 front laser mounts, an additional pylon, increased speed, more energy banks, and a higher reload rate. On the downside, no hyperdrive, Shield Boosters or Military Shield Enhancement could be assigned and the maintenance costs are 10% higher. While primarily used as a single-pilot combat craft, the cockpit supports a co-pilot as well.

When the fighter first was introduced to the open market there was much skepticism, no wonder because the design came from a small backyard repair shop. However, after the first test-flights, the orders exploded, escorts, bounty-hunters, mercenaries, and numerous Navies and local police forces stood in line to get some of the production. Needless to say that assassins and pirates also became highly interested.

Soon the shop became a shipyard and nowadays Biarge United Shipyards is known everywhere in the Eight.
