Summary[edit | edit source]

The Lynx is an ASW torpedo bomber being developed for the Steel Striders Navy. As its "XB" designation suggests, it is currently in the experimental stage of development, but may soon enter service.

Armed with a quartette of torpedoes, and dropping sonobouys with regular intervals, the Lynx poses a credible threat to submarines and surface vessels, and carries a small number of air-to-air missiles for self-defence.
