         The SL-15 Slayer has been a proud member of the Draconis Combine air and space forces since Star League times. The Combine was sick and tired of losing battles because their fighters ran out of fuel after a long duel, or fell to critical hits in the first pass due to light armor, and they called for the creation of a new heavy starfighter.
         The result was the Slayer, one of the few designs in existance to survive the Successions, the Clan Invasion, and even the Jihad relatively intact. What it lacks in flashy weapons it by far makes up in reliability and ruggedness.


         The SL-15 Slayer is designed as an offensive/defensive assault craft. Seeing its delta wing design and compact fuselage, many new pilots have confused the Slayer with lighter aerospace fighter designs-a mistake they seldom repeat twice. The Slayer was built for endurance and heavy firepower, with a double-capacity fuel tank that allows the craft to remain in the battle area far longer than most other aerospace fighters. The nose mounted SarLon MaxiCannon packs a good punch, with minimal heat discharge. This weapon, coupled with the five forward-firing Diplan M3 medium lasers can destroy a target with one salvo. If the fighter is not using overthrust, it can fire all these weapons at once with no major heat buildup. This continuous massed firepower has won many skirmishes over the centuries of combat among Successor State armies. A sixth medium laser fires to the rear, discouraging enemy fighters from close pursuit.
         With its heavily reinforced nose and upper and lower fuselage, the Slayer has some of the best armor for its tonnage of any aerospace fighter yet constructed. The rear section of the engine housing has also received some special attention. In 2775, Wakazashi Enterprises experimented with a rotating rear turret design for the Slayer. These tests were not totally successful; the turret rotation assembly tended to freeze while the fighter was in deep space, and the Slayer's upswept tail assemblies limited the turret's field of fire. Though turret-testing for the Slayer was suspended in 2780, the craft retains a vestige of the experiment: the rear weapons mount is positioned on the raised circular plate where the turret once sat.


         The Slayer is a tried and true design, with most of the quirks beaten out of it through centuries of warfare. Deployed throughout the Draconis Combine during every war they have ever been a part of, many of them were left behind when central control of the outlying systems failed. Because of this, Slayers are common not only in the Dracons Combine but in the non-aligned systems surrounding it as well. Most Slayers ever acquired by other nations were lost during the chaos of the Jihad though, somewhat limiting the wide deployment it once enjoyed.
