WarTech's sibling micro-corporation "Sovereign Virtue" (no relation to the Sovereign Domain Authority)belted out this fantastic heavy duty multi-purpose fighter many decades ago. It's an older design that has been upgraded over the years following WarTech's funding of the company, and has slowly become known as the "workhorse of the Frontier" by former Star Fighter Corps pilots. The Enforcer's shielded atomic drive does not have a governor installed, so it is interstellar capable. The vessel's lacking performance is made up by an ability to take a more severe beating by fighter standards, the rocket payload along with two different beam weapon systems (a forward firing pod laser and an Ion Gun Turret) makes it a versatile craft well suited for many roles.

The Sentinel crew swapped the ion guns for a pod laser turret in order to inflict more permanent damage when the need arises. She flies escort for the SS Corona Phoenix. She carries a LVL:3 maintenance robot in the aft bay to assist with upkeep and repairs.




The forward position is the helm for the pilot, the aft seat is for the astrogator/gunner. Both can recline to form a makeshift bed, aft of the astro/gunner position is an autocooker, sanitizer, and a disposal unit. The aft hatch leads to the storage & maintenance bay, where the vacc suits and maintenance robot are stored. A majority of the ship systems can be accessed here, although accessing some systems requires a spacewalk.
