[Future Perfect] Talon Gunship

One of the great successes among the vessels designed by the Merchant Clans, the Talon Gunship is a fast pursuit vehicle able to generate speeds in short bursts that nearly equal much smaller fighter craft. The ship is equipped with heavy armor, potent weaponry, and a tractor beam. Furthermore, most Talon's carry a full compliment of fighting men ready for boarding actions. The ship also is designed to provide adequate living space for the crew for long term residence, a feature quite often taken advantage of by the clans. The vessel's only real downside is it's poor handling and maneuverability, much of which was sacrificed for the ability to rapidly accelerate in a straight run.
