The Ares Star Fighter Ion is an anti-capital fighter manufactured by Crusader Industries. Designed to lead the charge against capital ships and heavily armed flotillas, the Ares ION excels at spearheading a fleet of fighters and support ships. Its purpose-built Behring SF7E laser cannon accurately delivers high-powered shots to quickly disable the shields of gunships and, with the support of other Ares variants, efficiently incapacitate capital-class vessels.
