The Snake class Fleet Defense Fighter is a combatant smallcraft.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Designed and built for the CNS of the Tellerian Cluster, this fighter is capable of 6 G's acceleration, and 6 agility. This is a result of the massive fusion power plant for a boat of its size. It is armed with a pair of beam lasers firing as a single battery. It is equipped with a model 2 computer without the benefit of a bridge. They rely on their agility and small size to escape destruction. They are streamlined and fitted with fuel scoops. Eight squadrons of ten of these fighters are carried aboard the Cluster class Fleet Carriers.
