Alliance Chieftain
Heavy fighter

Description

The Alliance Chieftain has been designed not only to dish out punishment, but to avoid it. Manufactured by Lakon Spaceways, the Chieftain is more manoeuvrable than ships of similar size and weight, and its combat profile means it can more than hold its own in a fight. The ship also boasts three internal military compartments, allowing the pilot to equip a shield cell bank, hull reinforcements and module reinforcements.

The Alliance Chieftain is intended to occupy a combat-oriented niche between the Python and the Federal Assault Ship. Its agility allows it to hit targets hard without overextending and having to bear the brunt of an enemy attack. The two large and single medium hardpoints are aligned along the ship's central axis, making them suitable for fixed weapons. All small and large hardpoints are also placed above the cockpit, with only the medium hardpoint underneath. Landing gear extends from beneath the front of the ship's hull and the two rear engine nacelles, which rotate. The ship also boasts three internal military compartments, allowing the pilot to equip a shield cell bank, hull reinforcements or module reinforcements.

The Alliance Chieftain is most commonly available in Alliance systems. It requires no rank or reputation with the Alliance to purchase.
