Avenger is a police patrol ship which is commonly refurbished for bounty hunter use. It has four variants; the Avenger Stalker bounty hunter, Avenger Titan with a cargo module, Avenger Warlock with a electronic warfare module and the Avenger Titan Renegade which is created as part of the ‘Masters of Flight’ series in conjunction with the flight-sim Arena Commander.

Official DescriptionEdit

The Aegis Avenger has had a long and storied life as the standard patrol craft of the UEE Advocacy. Although aging, the Avenger features a sturdy, reliable hull and the capacity for larger-than-expected engine mounts. It avoids more specialized weapons in favor of a single, center-line gun mount which makes it something of a marksman’s ship. Police Avengers support enhanced scanner suites in the service of their patrol duties and the civilianized models retain a higher amount of computer memory than similarly sized spacecraft.

The UEE Navy’s air arm continues to use Avengers (designated N6G) as their standard trainer spacecraft. Any pilot serving today likely spent at least 300 hours qualifying in an Avenger before moving on to their combat assignment. (We will use the Avenger for the training missions in Squadron 42; think T-6 Texan.)

As more coreward Advocacy offices begin the transition to the police variant of the M50 interceptor and used Avengers have flooded the market. Criminal elements have begun to adopt these Avengers for their own needs, finding that their larger-than-average cargo hold and engines make an ideal bootlegging spacecraft.

Developer Comments and QuotesEdit

I just wanted to clarify a few things. We aren't ready to announce the 14th player ship yet, but I can confirm that it's in development and we'll be revealing it in the near future. But to be clear, it is NOT a destroyer or a superfighter or anything like that... it's another ship that fits into our "rock, paper, scissors" mechanic. It'll have a clear role and right now that role is... nowhere near as sexy as your speculation. It will also be available to everyone when it arrives, not just high pledgers. Details are coming soon, so keep watching the stars!

–Ben Lesnick on April 26, 2013[7]

[Chris] Roberts says there will be a 14th ship revealed next month: Avenger.

–IGN article on April 26, 2013[8]

We are going to be disclosing the Avenger when the new website comes online [on June 28, 2013[9]]. So ah, yes, that's not very far away from now, so, approximately in about three weeks, you can wait, and we'll have details on the Avenger
