The Sathar SIG-21 is a new light fighter from the devious worms, intended for an anti-fighter role. They're faster than the standard SIG-25 but can't take as much damage, as a result they are easier to destroy assuming you can keep up with them.

The SIG-25, an acronym dating back to the first Sathar War that stands for "Sathar Intruding Gunship", is the mainline fighter craft of the sinister intruding foes of the Frontier. Since the formation of new fighter craft wings in the Frontier, the Sathar have been stepping up their fighter tactics so it is unknown whether the basic design is still in use or not. The worms have recently acquired the Pod Laser technology recently as we have discovered several groups armed as such, and speculation has it they may be integrating convertible systems on their fighter craft as we did with our F-40C Vulcan program.

Like all Sathar craft, an intact specimen has yet to be recovered. Any and all attempts to capture have all resulted in the SIG pilot's self destruction of the craft. Suffice to say Auto Eject technology is not part of their fighter program.

These menaces have just been discovered. Just as fast as a standard size 1 fighter and nearly as agile, their pod laser turrets compliment the role as an anti-fighter platform. Not very effective on larger warships though, but watch yourselves if you tangle with these fighters.

SIG-29 "Scorpion"
Sathar heavy fighter


HS:2  HP: 15  Powerplant: 2 sub-atomic
ADF: 5  MR: 4  DCR: 40  Crew: 1-2
Known Armament: PL(LR), AR(x2)
Known Defenses: RH
Known Communication/Detection Equipment: Subspace Radio, Radar


Numerous civilian and military vessels have come across these craft, some have been manned and others were not, suggesting possible remote control capabilities. As such, it is difficult to tell what kind of computer software these birds possess.

Z-35 Zuraqqor Hive Fighter


 

HS:1  HP: 8  Powerplant: single Ion A
ADF: 5  MR: 4  DCR: 40  Crew: 1
Armament: PL, IC
Defenses: RH
Communication/Detection Equipment: Subspace Radio, Radar


The standard Zuraqqor fighter craft adds a twist to alien encounters in the form of an Ion Cannon system along with a standard Pod Laser. UPF strategists theorize that the Sathar may intend to have their insectoid allies capture an Assault Scout with craft armed as such.

Z-75 Zuraqqor Raider



 

HS:2  HP: 15  Powerplant: 2 Ion A
ADF: 4  MR: 4  DCR: 40  Crew: 2
Armament: PL(LR), AR(x2)
Defenses: RH
Communication/Detection Equipment: Subspace Radio, Radar


The insectoid allies of the Sathar have unleashed these ion-driven monstrosities. Despite having less powerful drives than conventional fighter craft, they are still quite swift and agile. Not to mention a fair payload at their disposal to boot.
