The Esperia Talon Shrike is a variant of the basic Talon strike craft with smaller weapons and more missiles. The Talon Shrike trades in its Size 3 weapons for Size 1 guns, but has been modified with an internal missile bay carrying 24x Size 3 missiles. Using it's maneuverability and directional Phalanx shields, the Talon Shrike delivers its missile payload quickly on-target before evading pursuit.[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. The infamous Shrike variant model is armed with additional internal missile racks.
