A Fighter is available for purchase from The Black Dollar Menu. It is a support ship that will attack any target its owner attacks. The Fighter's effectiveness is doubled if the owner's corporation has the Advanced Drones Garrison Technology enabled.
Fighters have the following stats:
- Maximum Hull: 1500 (3000 with Advanced Drones Technology)
- Damage Range: 26-52 damage (52-104 damage with Advanced Drones Technology)
- 8s attack speed
- -75% Damage Vulnerability (Attacks against Fighters do 1/4 normal damage)
- 10% Critical Hit Chance
- 5% Splash Damage Chance
- 10% To-Hit Chance
- Small Stun Chance (3%)
A Fighter can be deployed at a cost of 10 Black Dollars. When a Fighter is recalled using the :Recall chat command, the owner receives a refund of 9 Black Dollars. Note: If both a Fighter and a Repair Drone are recalled at the same time, the owner will receive a refund of 19 Black Dollars.
A Fighter remains with its owner until it is either recalled or destroyed. Fighters can be repaired using metals, using Black Dollars, or with credits at StarPorts, the same way main ships can be repaired. Death of its owner does not ensure destruction of a Fighter. This is for all accounts, including Hardcore Mode accounts.
A Fighter cannot be targeted by other players, but can be targeted by NPCs. Fighters can take Splash damage from any enemy.
