The Marauder Assault Fighter design was created as a contribution from the Black Star Confederacy to their allies in the ISA, but was included into the Confederate Navy after the ISA was disbanded. It was mainly used by the Confederacy, but all former ISA members also had the schematics required to build this fighter.
The Marauder was a versatile and well balanced fighter. Its combination of firepower, speed and durability allowed this fighter to be supremely well suited to the multiple roles assigned to it. Its combination of speed, maneuverability and firepower made it an ideal craft for dogfighting TIE Fighters or for fast-paced attack runs against larger targets. At full recharge rates the laser cannons could fire continuously.
The Marauder was designed as a Space Superiority Fighter, and was given the best equipment money can buy. As a result, it was highly maneuverable and quite deadly.
Sporting a total of 4 Laser Cannons, 2 Ion Cannons and 2 Missile Launchers, and excellent shields and armor, the Marauder could outgun and often outrun most opponents.
The most famous users were the Confederate fighter wing known as Black Flight.
