This ship is bloody quick, and you can really do some mean aerobatics, but this is really the only reason why you should buy it. The sad fact is that there just isn't enough room for anything more than a 1MW pulse laser and a missile if you want to hyperspace. Perhaps the only reason to buy this ship is that it doesn't half look like the SR-71 Blackbird.

I own one of these in FE2, but I hacked it to give myself more missiles, 3000t of cargo-space, a Class 4 Military Drive and rear lasers. Now that was seriously good fun!

Test the ship!
