The RF-42 Centaur Tactical Fighter is the premiere space superiority Slipfighter in the High Guard fleet.

Designed to conduct high speed, fire-and-forget combat maneuvers, it is unmatched in its ability to engage multiple targets at short to medium distances. The primary mission of the Centaur is to provide combat patrol support for Glorious Heritage Class cruisers and Atmospheric Attack Craft Carriers. It also flies tactical escort for strike fighters and conducts suppression of enemy defense operations during interplanetary combat.

The Centaur is equipped with dual Antiproton Cannons and 2 Electromagnetic Launch System tubes which fire OM-5 Offensive kinetic kill missiles and Defensive kinetic kill missiles. The Centaur can be piloted either from the cockpit or remotely from a Flight Operations Center.


  • The Centaur is a creature in Greek myth.
