Kolam Long Range Fighter
The Kolam Long Range Fighter is optimized for long-range flight operations. This two-seat fighter is equipped with additional fuel capacity that allows the fighter to operate longer away from its carrier. Kolam Long Range Fighters were used for system patrols to aid in local policing and defense duties as well as forward observers and scouts where their ability to travel ahead of the fleet allows them to gauge enemy forces and/or resistance and relay the information back to their carrier.

Kolam Long Range Fighters were expensive to produce and proved unpopular due to the logistics of long duration fighter operations. In addition to these problems, pilots also found that Kolam fighters were simply not equipped for mainline combat duties. Only one flight of Kolam Long Range Fighters can be purchased per three flights of fighters in the scenario. So a player that takes four flights of fighters could take two flights of Kolams, but the other two flights would have to be of a different type.
