Heavy Fighter is a class of pilotable ships in the Sirius Sector.
A Heavy Fighter is known by the fact that it can mount five or six weapons, a torpedo launcher, and sometimes a turret. This allows for versatility in combat, with the potential for significant damage against capital ships provided by a torpedo launcher.
When compared with a light fighter of similar level, a heavy fighter usually costs more money, and may be less agile. This means that it is somewhat demanding to engage in a dogfight. Instead, a pilot is advised to utilise momentum and superior firepower to defeat opponents.
House Militaries utilize Heavy Fighters, and can be purchased at any House Battleship. Civilian Heavy Fighters are purchasable on Rheinland planets, and are sometimes used by Corporations in Rheinland and the nearby borderworlds. Almost all pirate factions and some terrorists fly heavy fighters, commonly in the independent and border worlds.
