Weapons and Equipment
The fighter was equipped with Primitive Engine, Primitive Cockpit and Primitive Armor (a lot of it). A Medium laser in the nose for short range fighting, while Large Lasers and LRM10 in each wing, with the smallest SRM posted to the aft to deter pursuit.
Due to its short service life, no variants were known to exist.
It become one of the primary fighters of the Capellan Confederation with Saroyan forced to expand its factory site fourfold to keep up the demand.
The fighter was so successful than twelve attemps had been made to steal the plans from neighbors by mid 2420, though eventually House marik was able to aquire it.
The Dragonfire's prominence lasted until the first generation of modern aerospace fighter built with advances in fusion and armor technologies spurred by the BattleMech arms race. Though several attempts were made to keep the fighter up to date with the new innovations, all attempts failed.
By the early twenty-sixth century, the Dragonfire had been relegated to backwater militias and by mid-century it had all but disappeared.
The Dragonfire served as the inspiration for the Transgressor's air-frame, setting again Saroyan success.
