The MA16 CatShark is a lightweight Trainer and Light Fighter, which specializes in anti-troop and anti-sub warfare. It can also take out small ships, including destroyers and light aircraft carriers. It is less adept at taking down other fighters on its own, though it is formidable in large groups. The CatShark is often used to train marine fighter pilots for intense scenarios and for flying the larger MA17 Blacktip, MA18 Bull and GI175 Sleeper Sharks.
Statistics & SpecificationsEdit
The MA16 is equipped with 2 X-m21 Maritime Hyperdrives, which are designed for low input and high output. They run on electricity, so the MA16 needs no conventional fuel (namely gas), but produces more thrust than is needed for its weight. The X-m 21 dumps air quickly, so the MA16 is quick and agile both in deployment and in flight.
With abundant thrust vectoring vents, the MA16 can make tight turns and risky manouveres that give less experienced pilots a taste of things to come, and experienced pilots and edge in battle.
