- The Shadow-Class Aerospace Fighter is designed with Vehicular Stealth Armor and a slew of sensor equipment. Scarcely armed with but a pair of ER Medium Lasers, the Shadow relies on this stealth armor to conduct recon surveys in contested airspace. It's Beagle Active Probe and Guardian ECM Suite work in conjunction with it's Look-Down Radar and advanced imaging systems to provide a comprehensive topographical map to commanders that is complete with enemy positions, including Thermal and EM signatures. Some doctrines include using the Shadow as a battlefield support ship, akin to an AWACS.

- The primary mode of survey is a 24-hour affair consisting of a daytime scan from orbit followed by a nighttime scan at high-altitude. Ten tons of fuel and a 7/11 movement profile give the Shadow long legs and plenty of speed for tactical maneuvers, including retreats. The Recon Camera in the Nose also allows the Shadow to act as a spotter for indirect fire, giving the ship added utility. The ten tons of the ships Vehicular Stealth Armor are evenly distributed across it's hull, allowing it to tank two AC/20 shots from any angle. However, despite this, the armor is not meant to stand up to sustained fire, being more focused on tanking hits long enough for the Shadow to use it's speed and disengage from the target.

Not sure how well stealth armor will work with a fusion spewing unit, but it may work as planned. Gm's would have to rule on that before use of it. Maybe an over the top of the rear stabilizers or maybe even duel ones running like the Leopard CV tail section. Dissipate the heat signature concept.

Given the intended use, moving one laser to rear, or having the rear have more armor, as it should only engage in combat running from others does come to mind. But this is not something that the game really emphasizes.
