  • Length: 16 meters
  • Width: 20 meters full wing span
  • Height: 5 meters full wings deployed,
  • Armament: Very High Gatling supercharged laser (forward). Missile launchers. Aft laser canons.

  • Standard shield generators
  • Long range sensors
  • Long range communications
  • 2x Heavy duty sub-light thruster engines

  • Reactive armor ( can take some missile hits from other fighters)
  • Carbide/ceramic durasteel layered skin (can take some standard laser canon fire if shields weaken)
  • Gatling supercharged laser canon

  • Fast response targeting computer.
  • Pulse code modulating comm, making it nearly impossible to jam.
  • Rapid cycling supercharged laser canon in a Gatling set-up for fast cooling/recycling


  • Slow hyperdrive: Very slow, can take up to 5 days to cross a Hex
  • An Albastros: Not designed to fly in atmospheres. The DV ST-X is sluggish planet side, as it is heavy, with little wing lift.
  • Lead belly: Pilots can rarely land this beast planet side. It is not uncommon for pilots to eject once below cloud cover and have the bomber drop like a lead sinker to the surface.


The Alderaani designed DV ST-X is primarily a carrier deployed strike/bomber that is designed to strafe and assault standard enemy SDs.. It was designed to engage enemy destroyer/carriers, bringing the fight to the enemy, rather than having it's own destroyer engage it. It's 2 heavy duty sub-light engines make it a fast deployed and responsive sub-light strike/bomber. The engines are heavily shielded and redundant ion converters let it sustain many laser canon hits. The DV ST-X is the primary attack heavy strike group on the Alderaani Devo. It can inflict damage to standard SDs. It's main tactic is to keep the enemy destroyer on defensive at a long distance.
They comprise 1 of the 8 squadrons of the SD Devo's 8 squadrons.
It's squadron call sign is Hammer, for it can drill away at a large target (ex: SD) as it makes it's high speed attack runs. It's rapid cycling Gatling supercharged laser brings the firepower of the Devo to the enemy's SD while the Devo is at a distance.

[member="Duke Kyle DeVoe"], this is currently one rating too high. As always, you can balance this by lowering a rating, moving production to something more limited, or adding a significant weakness.

Armament: Very High Gatling turbo laser (forward). Missile launchers. Aft laser canons.
Traditionally, we have not allowed turbolasers on starfighters of this size, especially at this production level. I would recommend finding an alternate weapon, something like a supercharged or heavy laser cannon, mass driver cannon, etc.
Directorate Officer
At semi-unique production, you can raise this up a rating or two.

If you'll change the reference here from "turbo laser" to "supercharged" here please.
