Brief History on the Creation of the Class
The primary fighter of the Terran Democratic Republic, the Patton class fighter is the most advanced in the galaxy. With equivalent weapons to the fighters of the Gohorn Directorate, and far superior engines, in a one-on-one fight between Directorate and Republic fighters it is the Republic fighters which are successful. Terran pilots are also better trained than their Gohorn counterparts.
It is the Patton fighter which makes up the majority of the complement of both DeGaulle and Ceaser class carriers, and the frame for the vessel has changed very little over two hundred years. The success of this class of fighter is unprecedented, and the Republic continues to expend considerable resources in ensuring that the Patton class fighter is the most advanced in the galaxy.
