The FF-4 Toriares was a fighter produced by the Earth Federation.
The FF-4 Toriares was a fighter that could operate in space and in the Earth’s atmosphere. It was usually deployed as an interceptor.
The FF-4 Toriares was designed to be small and fast, allowing to intercept enemy vessels rapidly. However, the downside of such a design meant that it carried minimal firepower. Thus, it was only effective against enemy escape pods.
The Toriares was equipped with a pair of vulcan guns built into each side of its nose. Although these provided weak firepower, it was usually sufficient for the missions that the fighter was assigned to.
