Highwind Warfleet Collection - Guide
The Warswift is one of the newest additions to the Highwind Warfleet, being developed from the chassis of the Warblade Interceptor. This Gunship is designed to be a cheaper and more mobile alternative to the Warcrow, replacing it as the standard corvette of the warfleet. This would lead to an entire revision of the fleets linup, making the entire economy of the fleet much more manageable.
The Corvettes and Frigates of the Warfleet are completely self-dependent and have much greater range than their cheaper hydrogen-based counterparts. They are designed to fight in wolf-packs against potentially stronger targets, with a Frigate's Captain taking command. They are also a good choice for defending low-priority stations and other objectives.
The Warswift is armed with 4 gatling turrets, 2 light turrets, and 4 rocket launchers. The standard tactics of Highwind warships is a topside barrage with all turrets by keeping the top of the ship facing the target. The Warswift is specialized in protecting the larger ships in the fleet from fighters, drones, and other small ships. Hydrogen fuel and thrust is recommended for the Warswift to operate in planetary environments, however it can operate on any atmospheric planet without hydrogen if needed. Being a hybrid vessel, the Warswift requires hydrogen fuel to operate on the lunar surface.
The Highwind Warfleet has several Utility ships to choose from.
