• Lightstealth-18 Reconnaissance Craft

    Carbon-black, with downswept stabilizers and a needlelike body, KDY's LightStealth-18 Recon craft has the most powerful sensors in the galaxy for a craft its size. However, it's mere existence is not documented, and it's abilities are closely guarded secrets. The LSR was built for speed and stealth, allowing to use its sensors and often be overlooked on a return scan. It is not equipped with a cloaking device - but then again, it really doesn't need it. The LSR's sensor package is more suited to a science vessel ten times its size, with numerous scanning arrays, jammers, hypercomm transceivers, and a crystal gravfield trap receptor. To power all of this, the LSR comes with a military-grade power core with something more the size of a corvette in mind. Don't try sneaking up on a LightStealth - chances are good that it will spot you from a a light-year away.

    Currently, the LightStealth-18 is use by New Republic Intelligence's Black Force Squadron. It is unknown how many they have or what capabilities NRI may have added.
