Like many Republic of Texas designs, the F-101 Fury and its F-2 Star Fury upgrade carried a large number of missile launchers. They made space-superiority fighters, and wanted to unload the maximum amount of anti-fighter ordnance into space as possible. This limited their anti-ship capability, but that is what bombers and attack craft were built for. The Texas Rangers upgraded those launchers to multipurpose arrays that could fire far more diverse munitions and greatly increased their electronic warfare capabilities. Successive upgrades due to technological advancement in the decades since have kept these capabilities at the absolute tip of the technological spear. A Ranger does not need to kill you to win the engagement. They can simply make a fool of you, a fate many have considered worse than death many times over the decades.
