Minbari fighters carry three beam weapons mounted around the central cockpit.  Based on their performance against meteoroids,<ref>B5 "Meditations on the Abyss"</ref> these weapons carry at least hundreds of gigawatts of firepower.

[[Image:B5 minbari fighter leeching.jpg|thumb|left|A Minbari fighter steals atmosphere from a [[Centauri warcruiser]]]]Minbari fighters use the [[electronic countermeasures|stealth technology]] typical of Minbari military craft.  At "maximum stealth", a Minbari pilot was able to fly his fighter right up to the hull of a [[Centauri warcruiser]], land on the ship's hull, and siphon air from the it.<ref>B5 "Darkness Ascending"</ref>  The ability to siphon atmosphere from enemy ships indicates that long-range reconnaissance is one of the missions for which the fighter was designed.

Minbari fighters apparently employ "magnetic and gravitational principles" in their propulsion systems.  This allows them to accelerate far harder than their pilots would normally be able to tolerate.  Consequently, Minbari fighters are the fastest and most maneuverable starfighters built by the Young Races.
