One of the first fighters to field full size quantum torpedoes, the Shogun-class possesses substantial firepower for a ship of its size and individual fighters are capable of inflicting critical damage to large starships. Unlike runabouts, the Shogun-class is not intended to serve as a multi-role starship. It is, instead, classified as a tactical support craft and does not carry its own NCC designation. Shoguns will typically operate in squadrons of eight fighters. One five-squadron wing is typically based on each Akira-class starship. Features Physically, the Shogun-class appears to be a smaller cousin to the Intrepid-class Atmospheric Operations Craft. However, the Shogun is a much more formidable warrior than its big cousin. The Shogun shares many systems with the both it and the Danube class, including impulse drive, thrusters, defensive shielding and computer systems. The Shogun is more heavily armed and armored, with ablative armor, a tetraburniumhull, more powerful phasers, more microtorpedo launchers, and nine full size quantum torpedoes. Its warp engines are derived from those on the Danube-class. With a streamlined hull and large, reinforced wings, it also excels in planetary atmospheres. Background During the height of the Dominion War, Starfleet experienced considerable losses among its fightercraft. Recognizing that Peregrine derived fightercraft were proving inadequate to Dominion forces, Starfleet scrambled to develop an upgraded fighter. Taking developments from the Danube-class, Atmospheric Operations Craft, and Type-10 shuttlecraft, the Shogun is a potent attack craft equally capable of operations in deep space or in Class-D to Class-J planetary atmospheres.
