Considered to be well armored and fairly well armed, the Lucifer is known for its tight maneuvering and prolonged weapons fire capabilities. However, numerous issues with cooling, targeting, and communications systems have plagued the design, and the ejection system was removed when the frame was refitted for high-G maneuvers. Despite this, the craft is respected for its anti-DropShip mission and the Lyran Commonwealth has invested heavily in production. When supported by other fighters to fend off enemy aggressors, the Lucifer has proven to be a very effective machine.

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The LCF-R15 is laser-heavy, with two large lasers, four small lasers, and one medium laser, all provided by Maxell Corporation. This variant also comes equipped with the Holly LRM-20, providing it with that far off capability to soften up a DropShip's armor, so that the four small lasers can do increased damage on the close-up pass.


  • LCF-R20 
    This 2609 Lyran version places more armor and three additional single heat sinks, at the expense of the LRM-20 rack, in order to increase the combat loiter time necessary for anti-DropShip operations. BV (1.0) = 1,441,[8][9] BV (2.0) = 1,536
  • LCF-R16K 
    The LCF-R16K Lucifer II was based on captured LCF-R15s and LCF-20s. The Lucifer II sacrifices armor and the LRM-20 in order to upgrade the power plant to a Manatwist 260. It also has a close range SRM-6 rack. BV (1.0) = 959,[10][11] BV (2.0) = 1,109

Custom Variants[edit]

Design Quirks[edit]

The LCR-3 Lucifer III variant is subject to the following Design Quirks:[16]


  • Author Blaine Lee Pardoe stated in a blog entry that, according to his memory which he admitted could be wrong, the Lucifer was among the aerospace fighters for which he invented the name and wrote the original background as initially published in TRO:3025, after being given only its art and game stats to work with for the TRO entry.
  • In German products, the unit's proper name was translated to Luzifer. The model code was accordingly changed to LZF-R15.
