The Firestorm fighter/interceptor is a fighter designed by XCOM in 2000 to replace the XF-701 Fighter/Interceptor and serve as a stopgap until the F-302X Grim Reaper was completed. It is armed with laser cannons and about 3 to 6 nuclear missiles. It is also equipped with a gravity drive found on death gliders and early Sectoid fighters. Production was halted after the introduction of the F-302 fighters.
