"Damn, look at that son'a bitch go; he haulin' ass!"
The Misriah Armories C-135 Star Fighter/Interceptor, commonly nicknamed the Talwaar, was a small, space-capable fighter craft developed and manufactured by Misriah Armoury.
The C-135 began its operational service during the Colonial era, specifically August, 2566. Within twenty years, it became the most produced light interceptor of any type since the twenty-third century, with thousands of aircraft in service with various organizations, namely the United Nations Space Command Defense Force.
Based on the somewhat prototypical design of the YSS-1000 Sabre along with various aspects of conventional interceptors such as the Longsword, the Talwaar defiantly earned its notoriety through its superb speed, zero-gravity maneuverability, and dog-fighting capabilities. Boasting numerous electronic improvements over its predecessor-in-role, these newer interceptors also boasted an even more versatile modular weapon mounting system. This allowed the Talwaar to be efficiently outfitted for a wide variety of missions, even atmospheric warfare.
Behind the Scenes
The C-135 derives its name from the talwaar (alternatively, talwar), a sword of Indian origin.
Before renovations, this aircraft's designation was the "MA12 Tomahawk."
