This used to be the most common fighter and any smaller ship carrying fighters will generally be carrying this.

Aging but still deadly

  Its four engines are locked in place but multiple thrust redirectors allow excellent maneuverability.  It also mounts a high velocity railgun with multiple ammunition options.  This gun has massive damage capabilities when used to strafe a target.  Also anti-fighter Redhawk missiles and rocket pods can be carried in two internal bays between the wings.  The only critical deficiency is in its lack of ability to carry the heavier anti-ship Blackhawk missiles and its relatively low total delta-vee (range).  This fighter is being phased out much to the dismay of several captains and pilots who like the fighter's smaller size and ease of maintenance.  The Corsair can go into atmosphere but can not land, and it is manufactured by the Boeing/Airbus Consortium on Avalon.

Behind the ScenesEdit

The name Corsair of course comes from two excellent aircraft a few generations apart built for the US Marines by Vought Aircraft.  It was designed by Martin Hohner, based on a concept by Nathan Bax.  The design is an homage to both the Thunderbolt Starfury from Babylon 5 and the original Viper from Battlestar Galactica.
