      Believed to be the Shivan interceptor, the Manticore has speed comparable to the venerable Horus. Though possessing only one primary weapon, its Mega Laser can easily breach even the heavy shielding of Allied bombers. It has a reasonable secondary loadout with two seperate banks. Its main failing is lower shielding for a Shivan fighters, though difficult to breach they do not have the strength for prolonged engagement against new allied weaponry.
