Advanced Fighter Pilot
Hey there!

I'm actually starting to like adding color to these things. 

Once getting to and from the colonies out in the Solar System became more affordable, the PMCs further developed their "naval" capabilities by outfitting freighters with weapons platforms. Initially, there were no fighter craft outside of Earth's atmosphere, but advances in aerospace technology allowed fighter crafts to be produced for missions on planets with hostile atmospheres and lower gravity. Over time, it just made sense to bring these technologies back to Earth and completely revamp the air forces.
