The Tlatl class Fighter is a combatant smallcraft.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a vessel with 6-G and J-0 performance with a airframe needle hull. The Tlatl (‘throwing blade’) is a light anti-shipping fighter originally designed to be carried aboard Shivva-class patrol frigates. Because of its size and cost, it has become very common in the light fighter role along the borders.
