FA-48A Thunder

Wracked by social and political upheaval throughout most of the 22nd Century, China was a late comer to the offworld colonization movement that picked up pace in the 23rd Century. The AVIC aerospace consortium had somehow survived the internal tumult of the prior century and the FA-48A Thunder was China's first space combat vehicle. Being relatively inexpensive and easy to construct, it was a popular defense option for smaller Earth colonies that were far removed from areas of Terran space that didn't face more hostile alien species.
