The Guardian trades some of its engine capacity for heavier armor and weapons, allowing it to serve as a point-defense fighter. The name comes from their role in protecting capital ships: CAGs keep a steady rotation of Guardians in space, using their Sonar to locate invisible enemy fighters. The deployment of early model Guardians countered the testing of Kilrathi Skipper missiles, delaying production of the weapon by fifteen years.
