Basically a huge strike fighter, Light Attack Craft are stationed at Starbases and Battlestations for last-ditch orbital defense of planets, asteroid belts, jumpgates, and other fixed targets. Too large to be carried in the launch bays of starships, these are used in a purely defensive role against commerce raiders and invasion fleets. Their four engines are capable of high acceleration, but have a very limited range. They also lack the fuel endurance to travel interstellar distances in hyperspace without refueling. Their four Lance Torpedo Box Launchers give them a powerful anti-ship punch, and they are usually used in large numbers to swamp enemy point defense. They also have four light chemlasers for defense against enemy starfighters, and a point defense laser system for protection.
Behind the ScenesEdit
The LAC-1054 was designed by Martin Hohner, based on an idea by Mike Turner.
