The Esperia Blade, a small 1-person light fighter, is a recreation made from salvaged Vanduul Blade's. Esperia made adjustments to the original design to accommodate a Human pilot. The ship is outfitted with two bespoke 2 and 3 guns and can carry eight 2 missiles. A unique feature of the Blade is the forward lying down seat position, which is typical for Vanduul ships.
|“||Vanduul light fighters, designated 'Blade', are often used as scouts and first wave assault crafts. Over the decades of conflict, they have been increasingly used to take out comm arrays and early warning systems. They have also served well as skirmisher units as their speed allows them to chase down ships attempting to flee. If engaged, expect the Blade to utilize its speed and agility to wear down your defenses.||”|
- The ship has four bespoke ship guns and two bespoke missile racks, all ship weapon systems are not interchangeable. The ship guns are two plasma cannons and two 2 laser cannons. The two 3 missile racks are each equipped with four 1 'Arrow' I's. 3
