The Esperia Talon is a small and light single-seat fighter designed for escort services and targeted strikes. Built in the Tevarin style, the Talon has powerful, directional "Phalanx" shields for maximum maneuverability, but weak physical armor once the shields are dropped. A pair of Size 4 weapons and a size 3 missile rack complement the Talon's "strike first and strike hard" combat style.[1][2][3]

In-game description

The Talon represents Esperia's continuing effort to preserve historically significant Tevarin ship designs. A maneuverable single-seat combat ship with light armor but powerful, directional "Phalanx" shields, the Talon is made to strike first and strike hard before using the shields to cover its escape.
