Often used by smugglers, bounty hunters, and blockade runners, Combat Thrusters are modifications to a Space Transport's existing engines and maneuvering thrusters that allow the ship to engage in space combat as though it were a Starfighter. A ship with Combat Thrusters is treated as one size category smaller than its actual size category for the purpose of being targeted by Capital Ship weapons (Thus imposing the penalty for attacking targets smaller than Colossal size). Additionally, the Space Transport is treated as a Starfighter for the purpose of Dogfighting (Meaning that it can engage in and be engaged in Dogfighting) and Starship Maneuvers. This Starship Modification does not change the ship's size modifier to Reflex Defense.
