History

The Gypsy Carrier was FIC’s replacement for the Vector and the precursor to the Adder. It moves the hangar bays to a more protected location, so fighters launch up and out over the rest of the vessel. It trades a number of larger fighter bays for legions of smaller ones (96 versus 110) with a full suite of support facilities.

It’s weapons are all that different from the Vector, though it does add another pair of railgun turrets for an even dozen. They have a fairly unique feature of firing ‘shotgun’ style rounds or standard solid rounds as needed. It also adds a set of heavy box missile launchers as seen in the Vindicator Cruiser. However, on the Gypsy these retract under armored covers when not being fired. These weapons give it more stand off armaments.
