Every successful military force in history has relied on accurate intelligence for their success. So the Federation Navy has created the Scout Ship, capable of operating for long periods behind enemy lines without resupply so that if war does break out, they will be able to send these vessels far behind enemy lines to help with information gathering. High-ranking strategists believe that this vessel may well prove invaluable in enabling the Federation Navy to defeat any all-out assault by the Auroran Empire.
- Heavy Fighter Class: The standard version shown here.
- Fighter Class: Slightly more powerful engines and shields; armed with 3 Light Cannons and a Raven Rocket Pod.
The ship falls somewhere between a fighter and a medium ship, having the advantages of both types of ships. It's faster and more nimble than most Valkyries and Starbridges and can carry more weaponry than any Viper or Lightning.
Strangely, and more frustratingly, this ship appears to be used by United Shipping, and is not available to the player even if they complete the necessary mission strings. Polaris Manta aside, this is probably one of the best fighter class ships in the game.
