History

The SF-11C, and it’s sibling the SF-14C, are the brain child of a small design group in the colonies. Both designs took classic fighter airframe designs and updated them into ‘modern’ platforms during a time most people thought fighters were useless. However when the colony rebellion occurred, the colonies realized they had a problem. Militarily they had almost no firepower on hand and no good facilities to produce large ships from. Solar Frontiers tossed their fighter designs into the ring, which could be built on a planet and travel into orbit. A freighter could also carry dozens of them around if needed to give them punch anywhere. The Colonies excepted the offer even though they did not expect much from them.

The SF-11C takes elements from several early fighter designs while not being specific to any one design. The end design packs 4 light lasers and a 6 pack missile launcher housed inside the body of the fighter. This sounds like a lot of firepower, but in reality the lasers have a low power threshold and the missiles it could carry are small. On the other hand it proved both fast and maneuverable.
