The fourth generation of Bottlenose Fighters produced by Arspace Dynamics, the AL4 Bottlenose was a significant improvement over the AL3 in terms of anti fighter capability. Its faster speed and maneuverability ended up landing it in an interceptor role, even though it was originally intended as an all purpose fighter. It's still faster than its successor, the AL5, and some pilots such as Bill Grey still prefer the AL4 instead.
