Holding The Line Chapter 7
Here's the latest from Raptor:
Hey all, Raptor here.You can read chapter 107 here.
After that look at the set-up to the massive fleet battle in Loki, we're nowgoing to change pace, and focus once again on the reserves and Tanfeners asthey prepare to play their own part in the campaign. We start with the nextinstallment of the Scraps of Honour series, which focuses on the BorderWorlds reserves, and especially on a militia unit called the Scrappers. Thischapter is written by Nick "Chaeronea" Deane. Please send any and commentsto Nick at firstname.lastname@example.org, not to me.
This chapter features two fighters flown by the Border Worlders in 2681, theIntruder and the Marauder. For those who are not familiar with them, a quicksynopsis. The Intruder is very similar to the Tigershark in speed, agility,shielding and firepower. Like the Tigershark, it's a jack-of-all tradesmedium fighter. It's only major weakness is its armour, which is the samegrade as that on WC3/WC4 fighters. The Marauder is a cross between aThunderbolt and an Excalibur, with most of the strengths of both, and only afew of the weakness. Like the T-Bolt, it's got great guns and a powerfulanti-capship loadout of torpedoes. Like the Excal, it's fast, reasonableagile, and cloak capable. Again, though, its armour is only Kilrathi War grade.
