FreeSpace: The Great War DescriptionEdit

We believe that the Manticore is a Shivan interceptor. It has a very high top speed, and its maneuverability is quite good. However, its shield system isn't strong enough to

withstand constant fighting for long, which leads us to believe the Manticore's primary purpose is to destroy enemy bombers.


FreeSpace 2 DescriptionEdit

The Manticore fighter is the fastest known craft in the Shivan armada. With a single, powerful laser and two missile banks, it is a dangerous offensive weapon. Its Achilles' heel lies in its thin hull and weak shields. Manticores do not last long in dogfights against other fighters. They prefer to target bombers, which are nearly helpless against theManticore's speed and weaponry.
