The XG7 Trident is a Ship-Launched Fighter created by the Engineer Ram Tah using Guardian technology and data obtained from Guardian Beacons. It is equipped with one Fixed Plasma Autocannon.
The Trident (XG7) is the first commercially viable fighter to emerge from an engineering project combining human and Guardian technology. Having superseded a number of earlier, unsuccessful models, the Trident is both agile and fast, surpassed only by the F63 Condor in terms of speed, and second only to the Gu-97 Imperial Fighter in terms of manoeuvrability. The fighter has a relatively light hull, however, so once its shields are down it is comparatively vulnerable. This model is equipped with an integrated rapid-fire plasma weapon.
— In-Game Description
In contrast with human-manufactured Ship-Launched Fighters, the XG7 Trident is an all-rounder that relies on its unique Guardian weaponry. It is slightly slower than the F63 Condor, slightly less manoeuvrable than the Gu-97, and has significantly less armour than the Taipan, but its damage output is substantial, especially against Thargoid craft.
The Trident's Plasma Autocannon is an energy weapon with the lowest damage-per-shot (8) of all three Guardian hybrid fighters, but it deals absolute damage. It is more effective against shields, fully-automatic, and can fire for a relatively long period without overheating, making it more effective against human ships than Thargoid ships.
The XG7 Trident must first be unlocked through a Guardian Technology Broker using various Guardian Materials, including a Guardian Vessel Blueprint Segment. After unlocking, it is available for purchase at any station that hosts a Guardian Technology Broker.
- The XG7 Trident was introduced in the Chapter Three (3.2) update of Elite Dangerous: Beyond.
