Originally designed to pair with the RSI Constellation, the P-52 Merlin is now available to all pilots! A dedicated parasite fighter, the Merlin is designed to be transported from place to place aboard a larger ship. Boasting a centerline Gatling cannon and a Lightning Power engine, the Merlin is a fast, maneuverable ship that packs a surprising punch! Ideal for racing, local reconnaissance, and fast combat. The P-52 Merlin is an ultralight snub fighter spacecraft developed by Kruger Intergalactic. Roberts Space Industries commissioned the original design of the Merlin for use aboard models of the Constellation multi-crew spacecraft. Merlins require a mothership or static facility to operate, as they lack a quantum drive system.
