About the Hoshou

The Hoshou Security is purely an STL space fighter. It was developed at the request of Tamahagane Corporation. The Hoshou was built for speed and maneuverability. It is a dual seat fighter that is intended to patrol around a space facility. It is equipped with extra sensors to help check inbound ships, debris and space objects.

History

In YE 33 after the parasite attack in Kyoto the Tamahagane Corporation took a look at their security methods for their various facilities. They felt the need to have a small armed craft to help them provide security screening for their facilities located in space. The requirement was to keep the fighter as simple as possible, it has no FTL capability, and features mostly existing technology. Because the craft was to help screen incoming objects it was given specialized sensors.

Appearance

The Hoshou has four engine pods with two Geshrinari Turbo Plasma Drive in each. They are mounted on fixed struts to make them better suited for making rapid turns. The fuselage in in the center of the four struts. The cockpit is located forward of the struts and the power plant and other systems are located between them. The laser defense turrets are visible just aft of the struts. The plasma cannons can be seen beneath the cockpit.
