History

Solar Frontiers had been best known as design group with a flare for redesigning old airframes into ‘modern’ designs that could then be fielded for cheap. The SF-13A changed this. It was their first aerospace design from scratch and while in some ways looking a lot like a traditional design, it mostly looks completely different form every other aerospace design in use. Unlike their previous designs, these saw considerable use by militia forces.

The weapons package of the SF-13A includes a pair of dual laser turrets and a pair of missile launchers. While the missile launchers use the same smaller missiles as their SF-11C & SF-14C designs, the laser turrets have more power than those designs. Also with a turret on both top and bottom of the fighter the fighter has full 360 degree coverage into all arcs by at least one weapon system, very few competing platforms can say the same. The second crew slot is a sensor/comm/weapons position that allows the pilot to focus forward while the gunner mans the turrets 90% of the time.
