As vicious in battle as it's namesake, the Wolverine is designed to scramble at a moments notice to protect key planetary installations. It has a reputations for being extremely difficult to kill due to it's speed, agility and the fact it's little more than engines and weapons.
About this creation
The Wolverine is a planet bound fighter craft, relying on oxygen for it's advanced combustion style engines, it is often forced to break pursuit in the upper atmosphere after scaring would be attackers into retreat. While more lightly armed than its typical prey, the Wolverine sports two medium laser cannons and two spectrum lock missiles. Additionally an array of 6 dazzler projectors allow the Wolverine to engage in psychological warfare. Producing focused bursts of pulsating laser light, the pilot can blind and stun any foe who happens to have forgotten to bring protective eye wear. This is usually the case as cloaking and holographic projection are far more popular now, however, you can not argue with its effectiveness.
When called into action the wolverine has several advantages over the typical assault craft it is tasked with taking out, it is not designed for space travel, saving much weight usually taken up by warp and sub-light engines. The engines are a hybrid design utilizing a scram-charger. As speed is gained the engines switch into scram mode then as long as the pilot has remaining fuel, he is nigh untouchable.
