  • [SIZE=9pt]Omnidirectional repulsors[/SIZE]

  • [SIZE=9pt]Specialized: This ship is dang good at bouncing around in a dense, low-visibility environment, luring other ships into said environments, and cutting them open. Collisions plus the Raptor shieldcutter take down the enemy’s shields, at which point collisions plus the Pimbrellan League beam take the enemy apart. It’s also a solid choice for clearing minefields.[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=9pt]Maneuverable: Meanwhile, this ship’s extreme maneuverability helps it slip between asteroids or comets or space junk or buildings, reorient, and fire every which way.[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=9pt]Slow hyperdrive: This ship is not suitable for long-range excursions.[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=9pt]Barrel consolidation: This ship only has two specialized weapons emplacements. Knock one out and the other might be utterly useless for the situation at hand, leaving the ship helpless.[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=9pt]Tricky to use: One of the weapons is good against shields and worthless against hulls. The other is good against hulls and worthless against shields. Use this ship correctly or you’ll probably die.[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=9pt]Short-range weapons: Both of the ship’s weapons emplacements are restricted to starfighter dueling range.[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=9pt]Pretty freaking slow.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=9pt]Description[/SIZE][SIZE=9pt]: The Torrent-class Heavy Fighter is a repurposed Wild Space mining ship, outfitted with serious shields, omnidirectional repulsors, insane maneuvering jets, and a couple of weird weapons. In most mission profiles, its sluggish acceleration and short-range armament loadout make it useless. Toss one of these into a dense asteroid field, though, or a minefield, or the comet showers of the Torrential system, or even the cavernous nastiness of Nar Shaddaa or the Coruscant Undercity, and you’ve got yourself a ball game. The Torrent-class is designed to sneak around, use cover, survive incidental collisions, pop out from nowhere, knock out enemy shields, and rip the utter feth out of the other guy’s hull.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=9pt]It’s also a pretty decent mining boat if you really need to carve up an asteroid.[/SIZE]

A fun little concept, this. There definitely would exist the potential for abuse with the two weapons you've got, but you've already covered that base nicely and made it very clear this is a pretty niche little gunboat. Top it off with Semi-Unique production and yeah, I think we're good to go here.
