The Vindicator is the jack-of-all-trades,
but as the cliche goes, it's also the master of
none. With mediocre speed and maneuverability, the
Vindicator isn't going to outfly any craft out there.
The gun armament is pretty vicious, with dual lasers
and dual tachyons, as well as two stormfire cannons
and two leeches, and can dispatch you quickly if
you're not careful. The missile armament is extremely
interesting. Six missiles and three torpedoes constitute
a deadly mix to capital ships and fighters alike.
In my opinion the Vind is a strike fighter, not
really suited to dogfighting, but extremely deadly
in the attack role. In a one-on-one battle with
most contemporary fighters, the Vind is pretty much
a dead turkey, but it performs passably in the interception
role, and is the only fighter in the Border Worlds
inventory with atmospheric capability, making it
invaluable to the Border Worlds Marines. I think
though, that the multiplicity of abilities that
the Vindicator has makes it suspect in any single
mission role. However, a solid fighter, but not
exemplary for most missions. ()
