The starting ship for the Terran Defender starting scenario, the Sabre is typical of Terran design, in that it stands out of its class in some way. Specifically, it features strong shields and high speed compared to other ships in the M4 class.


The Sabre is a capable medium fighter that is optimized for interception duties.

Physical Characteristics[edit]

Like all Terran fighters, the Sabre features a streamlined rocket-like fuselage, painted white with black trim. Its cockpit section resembles the beak from a bird of prey. It mounts its EMPCs in an underslung bay.


The Sabre is as potent as other M4s, but more heavily fortified. In absolute terms it is arguably the best regular M4 in a fight, but as it fits the costly and rare EMPC it is not a very cost-effective vessel. One weakness of the Sabre is its low weapon energy capacity and recharge: a Sabre with 4 EMPCs can only sustain fire for 12-13 seconds before running out of energy, and being limited to a single EMPC.


The Sabre mounts only the Electro-Magnetic Plasma Cannon and Poltergeist missiles.


The Sabre is available at any Terran shipyard.

Suggested Roles[edit]

The Sabre is usually only used early in the Terran Defender starting scenario, with weapons scavenged from other ships.
