A major development of the successful Delta Diamond space superiority fighter craft, the Super-Diamond includes upgrades to the space frame and engines as well as the electronics suite and weapons load. It is expected to replace its predecessor in service with space fighter squadrons of the Nitro Legions.
The Hard Eagle is a next generation space fighter designed from the ground up to meet the Nitro Legions’ needs for a new craft to fill the space superiority role. It also comes with the option to fit an ion drive pack, giving it capabilities for carrier independent operations.
