|Vindicator Target Designation, circa 2673.|
The Vindicator is a Terran fighter that can serve in both a medium fighter and a light bomber capacity. It features a standard missile loadout and a plethora of guns, as well as a rear turret for self-defense, making it a potentially lethal dogfighter in combat. As a light bomber, it can perform ground-based bombings on enemy forces and installations. These characteristics, together with its moderate maneuverability and speed makes it a solid general-performance fighter.
The Vindicator was primarily used by the Union of Border Worlds.
The Vindicator saw much action during the Border Worlds Conflict in 2673, and were deployed to defend Border Worlds interests from the superior forces of the Confederation. However, many Vindicators were also acquired by the Black Lance who used them against the Confederation while identifying themselves as Border Worlds pilots. During the course of the conflict, the Vindicator served in various missions, ranging from patrols to escorts to assaults on warships and planetary bombardments. They served with distinction on the BWS Intrepid.
