The so-called “Ultralight” fighter is a tiny, basic combat craft utilised by the diminutive Ephii. With little in the way of frills and only light weapons, these ships are deemed a low threat on paper. However, in real combat the adrenaline junkie Ephii who pilot the ships make tricksy opponents who opponents can find hard to hit, fast moving targets.
They are most effective in ‘swarm’ tactics, were their generally light weaponry can overwhelm heavy targets in concentrated power. If only small numbers are available, the Ultralight is best deployed as a specialised anti-bomber measure. Ephii aces are adept at finding the weak spots in slower moving craft and using their agility to cause persistent, mounting damage to lumbering bombers.
