When they designed the Scorpion Frigate and the Daemon Class Cruiser, Ramon Security Limited never really considered that they would need to design a fighter craft to support these large vessels. When the Eszausveian Navy approached them asking for a small, agile and cheap fighter, they were surprised. Apparently, the Navy had been dealing with space-borne dissidents and needed light fighters to cover the flanks and rear of their big ships, so they could concentrate on the tasks they had been assigned.

Thus, the Mongoose was hastily constructed and deployed - a light fighter in every sense of the word. Equipped with the most basic equipment, the Mongoose is one of the smallest ships in GalCop space, dwarfed even by the Adder, and mounts only a single laser facing forward and a solitary missile pylon. Its energy reserves are equally pitiful and due to its lack of power, it can't even upgrade its minimal shielding.

However, this brevity of construction makes the Mongoose exceedingly cheap to construct and to buy; a factory model Mongoose would set a Commander back only 30,000Cr on average. This low cost meant that the Eszausveian Navy could essentially flood the approaches to their fleets with swift, agile and tenacious fighters on even the meanest budget.
