History

The SF-25C, like other Solar Frontiers’ 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. The SF-25C was a bit unusual. First it was designed specifically on the classic US F-15SE platform. updating it to modern standards. Second it was specifically a air only design. This was done to make a very cheap option for close ground support and air defense roles which could be built and maintained without advanced facilities.

It mounts a single 20mm conventional 6-barrel gatling cannon for up close fighting. This is backed up by four internal hardpoints in conformal weapons bays which hold either missiles or bombs as needed.
