The Scorpius is a dual-seat heavy fighter manufactured by Roberts Space Industries (RSI). With an adaptable bi-wing configuration and revolutionary rail-mounted remote turret, the Scorpius offers unprecedented fire coverage, allowing for both defensive and assault-minded applications.[1]

The Scorpius was designed by RSI's Applied Innovations division in Kilian and tested by the 999th Test Squadron of the UEE Navy.[1]

Features

  • Weapons: With a total of eight Size 3 gun hard-points as well as racks that hold up to sixteen Size 2 missiles, the Scorpius offers a powerful sting against any enemy craft.
  • Powerful on-rails turret: With 4x Size 3 ballistic cannons, the Scorpius' turret offers unprecedented range, coverage, and firepower. It can be operated by either a dedicated operator who has full control of the turret or it can be slaved by the pilot in a restricted forward only firing mode. It has a dual configuration: defensive and offensive.
  • Convertable Spaceframe: Two distinct wing configurations reduce profile while landed and for storage
