The Predator-class Fighter was designed by the Muir Corporation and was intended for smaller planetary governments that needed good protection for a cheap price. The cost of a single Predator is fifty-thousand credits, a good bargain considering its stats. While the weapons are lacking, it is an economical fighter and makes up for it with a maneuverability near that of an A-wing and the speed of one as well.
The design would be used by the Muir themselves in the early years of the company until it was switched out in favor of the Eagle-class Fighter. The design sees use in various militias around Muir systems and the Ogriand Sector. Various Commonwealth systems' Home Defense Corps make use of the design.
