The Aegis N6G Avenger Trainer is the standard trainer fighter of the UEE Navy.[1]

Model

Variants

  • Avenger Titan: The light cargo variant of the Avenger. It trades the prisoner holding cells of the Avenger Stalker for increased cargo capacity.
  • Avenger Warlock: The EMP warfare variant. It sacrifices all of its cargo space for an EMP generator in its trunk which can be used to shut down ship shields and components in a large area.

Special editions

  • Avenger Titan Renegade: A dogfighting variant of the Titan as part of the Masters of Flight series, the Renegade pays tribute to famed pilot Danny Solomon for his notable work with the Advocacy to bring justice to Bremen. This Avenger Titan comes equipped with a specialized dogfighting focused loadout and a custom special edition livery honoring this iconic ship. [2]

History

In the 28th Century, the N6G Avenger was the premier front-line carrier fighter of UEE Navy. Avengers racked up a number of impressive space-to-space victories in that era but were ultimately supplanted by more maneuverable designs like the Hornet. With space combat focusing more on skilled maneuvering than pure weapons storage, the Avenger fell out of active duty with the military and was repurposed as the standard ship for Advocacy and local law enforcement. Currently, the military will still use Avengers as trainers; the two-seat variant is a forgiving first spacecraft for new pilots.[3]

Trivia

  • Any UEE Navy pilot serving today likely spent at least 300 hours qualifying In an Avenger before moving on to their combat assignment.[1]
  • Avengers will also serve as the initial training ship in Squadron 42’s single player campaign.[1]
