The fighter is built by the same manufacturer of the venerable [[Lambda-class]] [[shuttle]] and it shows.  The shape of the ship's wings and hull look very similar. The fighter is equipped with a Class 12 [[Hyperdrive]] and moderately powerful [[Shields|deflector shield]] system.  The folding wing design of the ship means that it can operate from any [[capital ship]] with a shuttle craft hanger.  It is powered by a sublight engine that gives a speed between that of an [[Y-wing]] and and [[X-wing]] making it very dangerous in the hands of a experienced [[pilot]].
