The Aegis A3G Vanguard Warden is a long-range military fighter which features extensive forward-mounted weaponry designed to tear through the shields and armor of other spacecraft. So-named because their multiple-jump range allows them to form the vanguard of any military expedition, Vanguards have seen extensive service against the Vanduul.[1]

Features

  • Durability: At the expense of maneuverability compared to other medium/heavy fighters like the Hornet or Lightning, the Warden is made from a distinct tungsten alloy and has an extensive backup systems which enhances the ships combat survivability.
  • Long Range: The ships extensive range can allow for missions lasting days or even weeks. Internally, the ship is fitted with sleeping berths and reclamation facilities to support such missions.
  • Modularity: The Vanguard has a unique swappable modular room that can alter the ships role and making it more focused for specific missions (e.g. long range jump scout, extended duration patrol/reconnaissance, fighter-bomber/interceptor, tactical command/control and electronic warfare).
  • Weapons: The Warden is equipped with a Size 5 gun hard-point, four Size 2 guns built into the ships nose, a manned turret with a pair of Size 2 guns and missiles racks that can hold four Size 3 and eight Size 2 missiles.

Development

The Vanguard is the promised twin-engine deep space fighter of the 60 million stretch goal. It is originally known as Bulldog. The concept was inspired by the twin-engine aircraft of World War II, like the Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg de Havilland Mosquito and the Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg Messerschmitt 110.[6]
