Description[edit]

The Goth is a early Clan Medium Omnifighter which was fielded during the 30th Century by Clan Hell's Horses. The Omnifighter is similar in the older Star League Aerospace Fighter, the Gotha. Like it's likely precursor, the fighter was designed for the role of attack craft.[3]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

Goth is a solid fighter with reasonably speed for weight class, being able push it's frame to maximum of 8 thrust with it's Fusion Engine. The hull is protected by 14.5 tons of Standard Armor, giving it modest armor for a medium weight fighter.

Prime Configuration[edit]

The bulk of the Goth's Prime Configuration firepower comes from a pair of wing mounted Artemis IV guided 15-tubed Long-Range Missile Launchers and backed up by a Large Pulse Laser and pair of ER Medium Lasers in the nose. Also found in the each of the wings, is a Small Pulse Laser. Second pair of ER Medium Lasers are found mounted to the rear, guarding the fight's vulnerable Tail.[4]

Alternate Configurations[edit]

  • Alt. Config. A 
    The A Configuration is a close range fighter, two nose mounted Large Pulse Lasers and ER Medium Lasers and pair of SRM 6 launchers added to each of the Omnifighter's the wings. The Double Heatsinks are increased from 19 to 21. BV2=1,898[5]
  • Alt. Config. B 
    Primary is Energy focus craft, with the B's firepower dramatically hotter running with it's wing mounted pairing of ER Large Laser and Large Pulse. Complimenting the Goth's sensors, a Active Probe is fitted to it's nose. To help cope with the heat from the lasers, techs have fitted 21 Double Heatsinks. BV2=1,095[6]


Notes[edit]

  • Goth OmniFighter was first released in Turning Points: Tokasha, which did not have any significant information on it's operational history or it's permanent image. As of this writing, the image used was originally used for TRO:2750's Gotha, which the it is believed bases for the Goth OmniFighter. Record Sheet released cites the forethcoming Technical Readout: Golden Age, being source material of the OmniFighter.[7]
  • Currently Alpha Strikes produced for the Goth OmniFighter and it's alternate Configurations are currently only found in digital form in Turning Points: Tokasha.[8]
