Return to the main page Return to the Megatraveller Index

The Thunderbolt F2-B fighter is found in service in large numbers, both in the Macquarie navy and the planetary defence forces. With the thrust being provided by a fusion rocket the fighters maneuvability is unaffected by the lack of a strong gravity field. This enables the fighter to operate in deep space unhampered, unlike craft using only gravitic drives.
