History

The Wolverine Corvette is a gunship that was designed to go with dropships to provide air support. They have almost always been used so far against pirates proving effective against everything pirate groups tend to field from fighters up to Frigates. At SAN headquarters there was a stiff argument as to whether this should even be built when the capable Panther Heavy Space Fighter already existed and could perform a similar role in a smaller package.

The primary weapon of the Wolverine is a combination of railguns: 1 nose mounted rapid fire railgun turret beneath the sensor beam and under the cockpit, and then each of the side balls has an extremely rapid fire railgun turret and a heavy railgun turret. To back up these weapons is a ordinance bay which can house a variety of missiles or bombs. It can hold 6 heavy missiles, 24 standard missiles, or 24 guided bombs. Four vectored thrust fusion torch drives give it both excellent speed and agility.

A second version (listed as Wolverine ‘B’) of the Wolverine was produced with 3 Railgun turrets (nose and upper ball turrets) and a pair of laser turrets in each underside ball turret. They are functionally identical, though the B has slightly longer range capability and gains instant hit weapons in it’s engagement range.
