Gunships are vital combat vessels for any fleet. Few are the factions that do not feature at least a couple of gunships in their hangars. these versatile ships are often used for hunting pirates, defense, freighter escorts, or raiding. Gunships are very specialized for combat and not good for much else - they carry a maximum of 18 storage crates. Their five cannons, when fired simultaneously, release a devastating barrage that will often leave a target ship crippled. They are the next step up from a Fighter, and a cruiser is the next level above them.
