Fer-de-Lance
Heavy Fighter

Description

The Fer-de-Lance is another classic design that has now been in production for two centuries. The ship became famous for its popularity with top business executives and wealthy bounty hunters, being a fast, well armed vessel, with luxurious accommodation and high quality components fitted as standard. Early models were built by Zorgon Peterson, but more recently, limited numbers have been upgraded by Saud Kruger in a rare collaboration, resulting in even more lavish creations, without spoiling the original design and specification requirements.

The Fer-de-Lance is a heavy combat ship, featuring a hull that is a bit more resistant to smaller weapons than other ships of its class making it well suited in the role of bounty hunting.

Although fast, maneuverable and well armed, the Fer-De-Lance suffers from a few major drawbacks, which include a poor FSD jump range, a limited number of internal compartments for its size and until v1.5/2.0 an undersized powerplant. As of v1.5/2.0, the Fer-De-Lance now has a class 6 power plant module instead of the under-performing class 5.

The Fer-De-Lance has different heat radiator animations for general heat dissipation and Frame-Shift Drive charge up for hyperspace. While both feature the animation of the same yellow/orange lighted radiators, the Frame-Shift Drive charging animation also features blue lighted radiators and two blue beams. The blue beams are projected from slightly behind the cockpit and are visible from the cockpit from the side windows on both sides.
