Full Item Description
The ISSF-23 "Wasp" starfighter bears a vague resemblance to the insect namesake; the main body of the light fighter curls beneath it, bearing the fusion plant that drives the entire vessel as well as the most potent weapon aboard the ship itself, the Variable Missile System. Perched above the main body, curled like an attacking wasp to reduce the overall area exposed to the enemy, the cockpit is a glistening blister of metal and chrome, flanked by a pair of hardpoints for mounting weaponry and ammunition feeds.
Thruster ports set in a rough diamond shape give the craft a fair turn of speed, particularly joined with the light mass of the vessel itself; nearly devoid of armor, the Wasp relies far more on agility and speed to outrun the tracking ability of any guns trained on it than any durability of the vessel itself.
Because someone had a bunch of wannabe hotshot pilots and needed a cheap fighter.
