History

The Hornet Space Fighter was a product of necessity, the UEG had sent a battle fleet to secure the Tantalus system from the rebel miners and the miners lacked the ships to fight back. So a handful of engineers got together and outlined a concept for a very primitive space fighter that could be built from spare parts. When the UEG battle fleet arrived they were ambushed by hundreds of Hornets, so many in fact that the battle was nicknamed the ‘battle of the hornet’s nest’. Sadly the design was so easy to build that pirates are still making use of them if they can’t find better.

No two hornets are armed the same. Classic Hornets usually use either: 1-2 Heavy railguns, 1-4 railguns, 1-2 dual railgun turrets, 8-16 mines, 2-8 standard missiles, or 1-2 lasers. It also usually uses a VASIMR drive, though some make use of a fusion torch drive.
