The Zeta 9 class Fighter is a fighter designed for speed, and for taking down any enemy in its sight.
When the Zeta 9 is docked in a hangar bay, its fins rotate until they are facing the nose of the ship. It also has a big engine for a small craft, used by many groups, and policing task forces, this ship can be either a asset, or a threat if used by properly trained pilots. Its speed is given by a Baridium powerplant that can cause the ship to meet its max velocity in a matter of seconds. Its pilots are required to wear special space suits, so they don't die in it from its velocity.
The armament on a Zeta 9, is unusual due to fighters of the same class, and other Zeta models are equipped with Laser Cannons, and Proton Missiles, or proton torpedoes. While the Zeta 9 is equipped with a repeating blaster thats more or less a razor gun, that rips and tears through fighter craft armor. It fires literally bolts of plasma that is more or less nails. It is also equipped with Concussion missiles that home in on its target and will detonate within 2 feet of the its target disabling its engines, this is an unusual class of Concussion missiles, that some governments made illegal, as it will disable concussion shields, or go right through them and kill more people than an unshielded target fired at with a proton torpedo.
When the Zeta 9 was proposed, it was supposed to be totally different from all the other Zeta models. In fact they wanted it to be so different that they even utilize illegal weaponry, and armor. Many pirate factions have bought this fighter, but it is more famously used by the Revannist Order. It was decided that they would "redesign" The V-Wing starfighter, and make just enough changes so that its not the same fighter craft, but still has the look and feel of it.
