The Saroyan Jump bomber was designed by Saroyan Special Productions of Sian to meet demand for a new conventional fighter to fill the need for cheap airframes for private militias and Home Guard units that would face a long wait for true AeroSpace Fighters. The Saroyan was based on mature technologies from the latter half of the thirty-first century and was introduced just before the turn of the century, during the decades-long rebuilding program the Confederation underwent to recover from the losses of the Jihad.[1]

Unfortunately, the Saroyan wasn't quite the tiger it appeared to be on paper, and was the subject of constant complaint from those who bought, flew, or maintained the aircraft - in large part due to the poor workmanship with which the aircraft was manufactured. Although the bomb payload the Saroyan could carry was acceptable, the ton and a half of Stealth Armor wasn't enough to protect the Saroyan from even light damage, and many operational commanders mistook stealth armor for true stealth capabilities - something the Saroyan didn't possess.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Saroyan carried no built-in weapons, having been built to carry external bomb payloads.[1] The craft has five external mountings for any bombs, missiles, or anything externally mountable equipment.[4]


The Saroyan had no internal cargo bays.[1]


No variants of the Saroyan had been introduced to service by 3145.[1]
