Imperial Space Force


As you step into the Hangar Bay, you look up to see many TIEs docked on the ceiling. On the opposite side of the room is a small computer console. You plug your datapad into it and are granted with information about the different ships in service of the NIF.
Fighter Pilots can take part in space battles, or enter the atmosphere of a planet to execute ground strikes. Choose your fighter wisely, as it will determine your task in missions. (RU is hull strength, SBD is shield strength, DPF is manoeuverability and MGLT is a measurement of speed. Kph or km/h is for atmospheric speed. These numerical values are of little importance in the RPG and are for your information only.) Most of these craft are available to fly for Imperial naval pilots. Imperial fighters can generally be fitted with the MBC, Modular Beam Compartment that can carry either a Jammer, a Decoy Beam, or a Tractor Beam. Beam weapons are effective within a range of 1.5 km. As a rule of thumb, all fighters are equipped with ejection seats with the notable exception of the A-9.

Star Fighters and Star Bombers are listed under the Intelligence section in the Imperial Database. You are eligible to fly the following craft when your pilot reaches the indicated rank level. Normally, one must be one rank level above the requisite rank in order to command a squadron of any given type of fighter, two ranks above the requisite rank level in order to command a wing of the given fighters, and three rank levels above the requisite rank level in order to command a division of the given fighters. For example, you would have to be RL-9 in order to command a division of TIE Defenders, while RL-2 is enough to command a squadron of Howlrunners.

Furthermore, pilots have the option to modify their craft beyond the standard vessels. The following is a breakdown of available modifications. You may select a number of modifications equal to your rank level, starting with 1 and a maximum of 14.

Systems marked with * can only be fitted once, however you can select it twice for a backup unit if applicable. Modifications which you can select more than once are addressed as I, II, III etc for each step. For example, Afterburner II, Improved Engines III. You can add, change, or remove a maximum of two modifications per mission. Should you lose your fighter in combat, you have to start over with a standard fighter of your choice, but you retain the right to install as many mods on it as your rank level. If you temporarily switch out your usual fighter for another, the new craft will be a standard fighter - however you can still add one mod to it before you fly it, or two if you have a rank level of at least 2. You should list your current mods in your character profile, and it is highly recommended to roleplay out fitting and trying out your new mods. These mods are available for all pilots, including Army Pilots.
