The Warbird Aerospace Superiority Fighter is the most distinguishable war vehicle of the Dominion, and like the Liberator is noted for it outstanding successes in the Portal War. The fighter features two magnetoplasmadynamic engines that can propel the fighter twice the speed of sound within atmosphere, or 1500 m/s in space; eight Assertion anti-ship missiles; a undermounted plasma repeater; and, a belly-mounted Ripper array that can launch a multitude of Ring-Inducted Plasma Rockets, or flares to disrupt enemy sensors and tracking systems.
Warbird pilots are a rare breed. They need to be of the highest physical and mental fitness, and be capable of resisting the intense G-forces that the fighter exerts against them. Warbirds are capable of both atmospheric and space flight, and are also capable of re-entering the atmosphere, but lacks the power to exit a planet's atmsophere on its own.
