Gimmellian Stealth Device: Reduces the range band of enemy ships’ passive sensors by 1 (to a minimum of close range) for detecting the Tallanx. In order to function, all power from shields and weapons must be channeled into the cloaking device. Rerouting power takes one action.
Electronic Countermeasures Suite: Blocks sensors within range when active, counting the Tallanx’s silhouette as 2. Immediately notifies all ships in a star system, or within 100 kilometers if planetside, to the Tollonx’s existence.
Sleek and angular, with a matte black hull that camouflages it against the darkness of space, the Tallanx-class stealth fighter is one of the few starfighter designs to see action on Ord Gimmel during the Galactic Civil War.
Though quick and maneuverable, the Tallanx is not intended to participate in extended dogfights or skirmishes. Its design philosophy relies on stealth and lightning-fast attacks upon unsuspecting targets. Fragile and lacking any significant firepower when compared to other fighters, the Tollanx’s major accomplishment is its cloaking device.
When active, the Tallanx’s cloaking device masks the ship from the sensors of other ships. Though not foolproof, this can often mean the difference when navigating through the gaps in an Imperial sensor net. In order to power the cloaking system, the pilot must divert all
power from the ship’s shields and weapon systems.
