Basic Description

The Harto Battle Fighter is the upgraded predecessor to the easily destroyed "Yeswaq" class Combat fighter. The Harto is a vast improvement upon the Yeswaq, with better speed and more weapons. It came about after various disastrous incidents involving the aging Yeswaq and was quickly authorized by the Gohorn Engineering Corps after the scrapping of the Yeswaq class began.

The Harto has since become the staple fighter for the Gohorn fleet. Although slower than the staple fighters of the Terran Democratic Republic and the Rosebourg Monarchy, like all things Gohorn the Harto has a bite that more than makes up for its lack of legs. It is named after Admiral Harto, a figure from the first Terran/Gohorn war.

If pilots want to become a member of the Gohorn Directorate's Fighter Corps, then it is in the Harto that they are trained and prepared. Only a handful then go on to learn how to pilot the Heavy Battle Fighter or the Bomber, and fewer (normally those at the bottoms of every class) to pilot the Xarxan.

The Harto class Battle Fighters are the ships which one is likely to come up against in combat. They are made with no special emphasis, thus lacking any type of special systems and they have one purpose, to fight the fighters of opposing enemies. If the Gohorn Directorate could have its way, it would do away with fighter craft all together as small and needless, however in a universe where their greatest enemies biggest weapons are their fighters, the Gohorn Directorate must have something to counter this.

Very little money or effort are invested in the Harto class Battle fighters. This does not mean that they are flawed or incapable in someway, but simply that the Directorate has developed a fast factory process in which units can be turned out in batches and sent directly to the front lines. The Harto class fighter is not capable of operations inside an Atmosphere.
