Brief History on the Creation of the Class
The Heavy Battle Fighter is the Gohorn Directorate's preferred fighter combat method. With slower speeds and more weapons, the Jarkat was designed by War Admiral Turat to operate with Gohorn fleets. These fighters proved to be popular weapons platforms, providing (when used in numbers) effective attack and defensive possibilities. However, as is common with Gohorn vessels, the compromise for the Jarkat's added weaponry is a loss of speed.
The Jarkat is a popular choice for Gohorn fighter pilots, who are willing to compromise on their speed for the ability to destroy their enemies with single shots from the more powerful laser cannons. Gohorn battle strategy has always relied on an effective first strike to wipe out the enemy fleet and thus make their speed an ineffective attribute.

The Jarkat is a Heavy Battle fighter, and thus is slow but heavily armed. It does not work well on its own, and performs best when engaged in operations with a capital ship or in conjunction with other, faster, Gohorn fighters.
In a one to one battle with the equivalent Battle Fighter of any other race, the Jarkat would probably come off the loser because of its compromised speed, unless it was given the time to destroy the opponent fighter before the shooting and close combat began. This has meant that Jarkat fighters are only brought on to the battlefield when there is cover of capital ships. They work very well together in groups, acting like capital ships that can break up and spread the firepower around, however they are much in demand and thus spread thinly.
