Tough and agile, the Broadsword carries a decoy flare launcher that draws defensive fire away from high-value targets like bombers and their payloads. However, it can falter if faced with the need to deal the killing blow itself.

–In-Game Description

Notes[]

The Broadsword fighter is one of the most ubiquitous and inexpensive wings in the game, alongside the Mining Pod Auxiliary, Piranha Bomber, and Talon Interceptor. The relatively low ordnance cost of the wing, paired with its armament and flares, makes it an ideal escort for higher OP bombers, such as the Longbow or Dagger. Outside of an escort role however, the Broadsword is little use against enemy ships.
