The Saiph is a super-agile fighter-interceptor developed in parallel with the Rigel. Built around a large fuel-injecting engine unit, the Saiph relies on speed and manoeuvrability for defence, its small size preventing the installation of the kind of energy units and shield enhancements usually found in military ships. The Saiph’s unusual control surfaces serve to provide stability during atmospheric flight, while in space they are used to deflect thrust from retro-rockets to further increase the ship’s agility.

Despite being developed as a fleet combat craft, ex-service models are occasionally seen in private hands, where they have become an attractive option for wealthy bounty hunters. Saleza frowns upon the use of any of their ships for acts of piracy or murder, and rumours abound that the company will pay handsome rewards for any information about the misuse of their intellectual property in this way.


This ship is part of the Saleza Aeronautics OXP.
