Brief History on the Creation of the Class
The Raqwan class bomber is the only Gohorn fighter capable of both atmospheric and space flight. When the first skirmishes of the First Terran/Gohorn war began, the Gohorns were being defeated on the space battlefield and on the ground by Terran fighters. Fighter craft were not new phenomena for the Gohorn military, the Rosebourg Monarchy employed them, however not to the same extent as the Terrans did.
Thus, when the first generation of Gohorn fighter craft were conceived, so was the Raqwan. The fighter used in service now is much more advanced than the first generation, and resembles said first generation Raqwan only by name. However the mission of the Raqwan is the same, to destroy. Raqwan bombers are now outfitted with only minimal defensive weapons, as the new generation of Erktat Fighter Interceptors has meant that Raqwan bombers can be protected whilst performing their missions, without the need for its own defensive weapons to distract it.
The Raqwan?s mission is a simple and direct one. It is outfitted with ship to surface bombs capable of causing large damage.

The Raqwan bomber is used to destroy ground installations. It has comparable speed to the Jarkat class Heavy Battle fighter, however is much less heavily armed when it comes to defending itself. The Raqwan relies on its defense from other ships, in order to perform its mission. The bombs are kept in a bay fixed to the bottom of the craft, and can be released at as many as two at a time.
