Starfuries on patrol.

 Posted on 1/14/1995 by to

The starfuries were deployed from lunar bases, also from carriers
that dropped everything they had.

Since this was a last-ditch effort, there was no point in keeping
reserve starfuries on-board, and the big ships still made huge targets.
This was almost entirely an offensive maneuver, not defensive. You pop
everything you've got, figuring that probably nobody will make it back.
