|Gothri heavy fighter|
The Gothri heavy fighter is a Kilrathi starfighter from Chris Roberts's Wing Commander series of computer games. Its first appearance was in the computer game Wing Commander II: Vengeance of the Kilrathi.
The Gothri heavy fighter was the Kilrathi's newest heavy fighter to be deployed in 2667. It was more powerful and deadly than the Kilrathi's current Jalkehi Heavy Fighter in its time. In Wing Commander II: Vengeance of the Kilrathi, Christopher Blair encounters these fighters mainly in the Secret Operations expansions. These fighters also appear in Wing Commander: Privateer, encountered by mercenary Burrows.
The Gothri fighter was the pinnacle of Kilrathi starfighter technolgy during its time. Although the Kilrathi had already deployed the Jalkehi Heavy Fighter as their main heavy fighter, the Gothri was designed to be faster and more powerful than the Jalkehi. A Gothri fighter had a front-mount weapon array of two Mass-drivers and two Particle cannons. It was also equipped with a laser turret and meson turret, making the Gothri a difficult fighter to trail or combat. The Gothri's missile payload included three Image Recognition missiles, a Friend or Foe missile and a single Dart Dumbfire missile, which was a heavier payload than the Jalkehi's.
