The Pegasus is a heavy FighterShip. Three front guns, two missile/torpedo launchers and a rear turret as well as max. level 4 shields and level 8 engines make sure it fits that role. With Afterburner a Pegasus is as fast as any fighter and it turns just as quickly, even though it is slow to accelerate. It was not designed for trade, though, its cargo space is just a large as that of a Tarsus.
