The P-12 Agunda class Snub Fighter is a TL–9, partially streamlined close structure hull which has been armored and reinforced. They are described as ugly, brutish craft with a cockpit/bridge with two acceleration couches and a Model/1 ship computer. Designed as an inexpensive pursuit fighter for combat space patrols. This is a fast, short endurance weapons platform.
It can accommodate two crew under normal combat conditions. Typically the bird was flown solo, from the back seat with the weapon officer's station left empty and slaved to the pilot's HUD in his control helmet.

History & Background (Dossier)
The Void Sailors Nist Fighter Squadron 172nd NFS, are one of the only units to still operate this fighter. These craft have long been removed from front line service and are only deployed in the lowest readiness level reserve units. They were carried into battle aboard Hyperion class Escort Carriers or based on system defense outposts.
Distant Fringe Vessels
The Distant Fringe is said to be a far spinward-rimward area inhabited by colonists and refugees originating on Terra. The region is extremely isolated, separated from the rest of Charted Space by vast, almost uncrossable rifts that were once broached by a system of calibration Points and the use of tankers. Those few academics within Charted Space who have found references to the Distant Fringe regard it as little more than a tall tale. Likewise, many of the inhabitants of the Distant Fringe believe the existence of Charted Space to be mythical.
Vessels originating within the Distant Fringe are very rarely encountered outside of the region. However, misjumps do occur and anomalies with bizarre spacetime and Jumpspace effects exist: as such, craft of this type are not entirely unknown within Charted Space.
Class Naming Practice/s & Peculiarities
Individual vessels are generally named by their crews.
- Individual vessels within the class are issued specific serial numbers and transponder codes.
- Naming a ship is considered a serious affair and is generally accompanied by a traditional ceremony, usually pouring a local beverage over the bows of the craft. Spacefarers tend to be superstitious folk and a ship with a frivolous name is considered "unlucky".
