It may be configured for Space Superiority and Strike roles, as well as Battle Rider, Electronic Warfare, and others. It fulfills combat roles similar to the highly acclaimed F-15E Strike Eagle or the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
PEGASUS-CLASS ASSAULT TRANSPORT: A large, sturdy multirole ship, the Pegasus relies on large propellant tanks and heavy armor to provide it with incredible endurance, allowing it press on through almost any opposition it is likely to encounter. It is extremely versatile and may be configured for Assault Transport, Combat Search and Rescue, Heavy Strike Ship, Missile Defense Boat, and more. It fulfills combat and support roles similar to the venerable AC-130 Spectre.
