Class Information

The Scorpion Class Fighter was a Reman design that entered service in 2378. This design of fighter was both by the Romulan Star Navy and Reman Commando Troops. Scorpion class fighters were primarily used as support for ground troops clearing out heavy weapons emplacements and softening targets prior to troops entering the area. These fighters were also used to protect the larger ships such as the Scimitar, D'deridex and Khellian classes.

Due to its small size the Scorpion Class was not warp capable and therefore required a larger ship to carry them into combat. While limited to impulse speeds a Scorpion Class Fighter could reach 75 percent of light speed. This high rate of speed allowed it to out run larger ships and keep pace with any other fighter when those vessels were travailing at sublight speeds.

A Scorpion was crewed by two persons. They were seated in the cockpit of the fighter in a tandem configuration with the aft position elevated slightly above that of the forward position. with the forward position dedicated to piloting the craft and the aft position dedicated to operating the weapons systems.

Armaments of the fighter consisted of a single Disruptor cannon that was located at the aft ventral position of the outer hull just behind the cockpit. The fighter is not equipped with a torpedo launcher but was equipped with a graviton shielding system to protect the fighter from enemy weapons.

This lack of serious fire power did not hinder the Scorpions tactical abilities. What it lacked in weapons was more than made up in maneuverability that allowed the fighter to dodge enemy weapons fire while getting in close with larger vessels were their Disruptor Cannon would be more effective. During fleet battles the Scorpion acted primarily as interceptors engaging enemy fighters providing and extral level of protection to the larger ships in the fleet and allowing the heaver armed Aen'rien class to concentrate on enemy capital ships.
