The hit-and-run icon, remastered for the modern age
Representing our unyielding commitment to history, unprecedented archeological access, and cutting-edge modern engineering, Esperia is proud to present our near-perfect recreation of the infamous Talon – a piece of the past that you can fly today.
The history books are filled with accounts from the Tevarin wars of the uniquely effective attack methods and formations employed by Talon pilots - near-synchronous strikes, maximizing each attacker’s strength as part of a greater combined assault. The Talon was the linchpin of this surgically precise mayhem. Esperia has resurrected this infamous hit-and-run icon for the modern era.
The Talon represents Esperia's continuing effort to preserve historically significant Tevarin ship designs and update them for practical Human use. Utilizing the close consultation of both Tevarin and Human pilots and historians, we offer an unparalleled level of authenticity, faithful to the last detail.
Inspired by the original Tevarin "phalanx" shields, the Talon is equipped with proprietary focused shield generators, providing ample coverage and unprejudiced projectile deterrence. When deployed in force, frontline ships outfitted with these shields can provide crucial cover for following waves of ships and troops.
Borne out of a culture of fighters, the Esperia Talon, just like the original, is built for battle. And anyone who's logged hours behind the stick of a fighter can attest that combat is anything but predictable. The cockpit's ability to launch as an escape pod encapsulates the Tevarin spirit of never backing down from a fight.
Developed during the Second Tevarin War with a modified, missile-focused offensive configuration, and reimagined for modern Human use here at Esperia, the infamous Shrike variant model is armed with an authentic internal missile racks capable of unleashing lethal barrages of projectiles that add a devastating lethality to hit-and-run tactics.
Meticulously recreated to flawlessly emulate the original.
