T-45 Thunderchildadapted from Colony Wars by Patrick Stutzman
|Originally designed by Core Revolutionary Industrial to be an interceptor fighter, the T-45 Thunderchild starfighter is a sturdy fighter that performs primarily escort duties and planetary defense. Although the hull seems weak when compared to other T-series starfighters of comparable strength, the T-45's shielding helps to compensate for its shortcomings.
The T-45 proved its worth early in its market history with its involvement in many small-scale revolts in the Outer Rim near the Corporate Sector.
