Fighter Complement

Storm Squadron: six modified SA-26A Thunderbolt Starfuries
Desell Squadron: eight Minbari/Vorlon Zen’Thas Prototype Fighters

 

SA-26A Thunderbolt Starfuries

Features:

  • 2 x Rapid-Fire Pulse Discharge Cannons
  • 2 x Ion Cannons 8 x Missile Launchers (standard load of concussion missiles)
  • 1 x Blacklight Cloaking Device
  • 5.6-cm reinforced armor
  • 2 x Grappling Claws
  • 1 Cutting Laser

The SA-26A Thunderbolt Starfury is a two-seat superiority space fighter capable of atmospheric flight, often preferred by human pilots. These multi-mission fighter-bombers provide strong support for other fighters as well as capital ships like the Phoenix, and are easily modified for special tasks.

 

Zen’Thas Vorlon/Minbari Space Superiority Fighter (Prototype)

Features:

  • 1 x Light Slicer Beam
  • 2 x Pulse Discharge Cannons
  • 1 x Light Neutron Turret (rear mounted)
  • 1 x Blacklight Cloaking Device
  • 2 x Tractor Beams
  • Minbari Heavy Armor
  • Minbari Energy Shielding

The Zen’Thas design is the latest attempt by Anla’shok engineers to recreate the power of a White Star at that starfighter scale. These one-seat fighters pack quite a punch for their small size. While atmospheric-capable, they are better suited for space. The Zen’Thas excels as a deep space reconnaissance vehicle and interceptor, but isn’t as easy to refit as the Thunderbolt.

 

Shuttle Complement

Three STG-19 Earth Shuttles (Macklin, Willerth, Stewart)
Three Eshnat-class Minbari Shuttles (Eshnat, Nuthorm, Lartiel)

 

Earth Alliance Crew Shuttle

The STG-19 shuttle has been called the workhorse of the Earth Alliance. This model is cheap to maintain and easy to modify, which makes it popular among private and commercial shipping companies. On the Phoenix, it is often used for moving cargo and personnel. It requires a standard crew of 2, and can carry an additional 24 for evacuations or troop deployments. One shuttle is made ready for atmospheric flight at all times.

 

Eshnat-class Armored Minbari Shuttle (Prototype)

Features:

  • 2 x Medium Twin Neutron Cannon
  • 1 x Ion Beam
  • 1 x Tractor Beam
  • 1 x Breaching Ring
  • Minbari Heavy Armor
  • Minbari Stealth Technology

This is a new prototype, a Minbari trans-orbital flyer modified specifically for the Phoenix, designed to carry personnel safely through dangerous flight scenarios. The Eshnat-class is equipped with articulated wing stabilizers for atmospheric flight, a gravitic tractor beam to grapple ships or cargo, and a breaching ring to infiltrate enemy craft, all while taking a severe beating in combat. It can hold a crew of 20 (two pilots and 18 passengers).
