|5.1 A-32 Panther|
“The A-32 Panther is an excellent craft,” said Fleet Analysis Chief Admiral O’Connor “and it has served the UGTO well. However, the galaxy is not the same place it was 5 years ago. The rag tag Farstars have solidified into a solid nation, the ICC. There is also the new threat of the K’Luth Empire, which posse’s technology unheard of until recently. The better combat these foes, we are announcing the following upgrades.”
Admiral O’Connor the proceeded to outline a timetable of upgrades to the venerable Panther, including the reinforcement of it’s hull design, the inclusion of point defense foiling targeting scramblers, the addition of the new Phoenix Missile to it’s standard armament, and it’s redesignation as the A-34 Panther Assault Fighter.
