An Inheritance of Stars
Named for its tendency to be found prowling about on patrol, hungry for prey.
The Prowler is a mid to long range heavy fighter. Designed to be piloted by a crew of two, its impressive armament, powerful shields, and military grade hyperdrive mean that it can threaten targets within 1 week of hyperspace travel. This means that within the core systems, it can often jump from planet to planet without the need of a carrier ship. Another common use is as a long range scout. Though intended for two pilots, the Prowler is often crewed by 1, and filled with extra supplies. In this manner, the vessel can extend its mission time to 2 weeks. Doing this however imposes a -2 on all piloting or gunning checks made without a co-pilot.
