The Planetary Patroler was used to defend planetary systems so that assault fighters could be used else were. It is a small two man fighter that packs a punch. It has two fixed light laser cannons that face forward and two moving heavy repeating blaster cannons mounted on the back. The Gunner controls the two moveable weapons and is responsible for taking out any enemy fighters on their tail. Despite its small size the ship is heavily armored and can take quite a beating. A spuadron of Planetary Patrolers could effectively defend their sector of the planet from enemy fighters and bombers long enough for re-enforcements to arrive. A single planet often had three to five squadrons of these fighters patrol the space around it at any given time making very difficult for any invaders or pirates looking to cause trouble in the system.
