DESCRIPTION
The DE-4 was custom built to meet the needs of the Tekkar family in their clandestine missions. The ship's design is meant to be low profile to limit view and angles of attack on the vessel. This in theory also allows the ship to get in and out of system unnoticed after certain individuals have been taken care of. The light armor and armaments allow the ship better maneuverability than ships of this class typically have allowing it to pursue most targets in. Folding s foils in the wings also allow for a lower profile while landing to fit into tighter spaces.

Inside is a spartan interior not much designed for comfort. A small crew quarter can comfortably house 3 average sized beings while a small brig houses 1 cell for prisoners if need be. Also able to hold a decent cargo compliment and with enough space to hold provisions for several months the DE-4 can stay out of system for prolonged hunts. Though the ship is admittedly not very useful as a dedicated cargo hauler by any means. Also the Tekkars found the ship to not be particularly useful in open battles, as it much better used for hit and run tactics.



LEGALITY
While eye catching if seen the ships light armament shouldn't draw the eye of local law outside of the most tightly policed worlds.

INTENT
Personal star ship of my character Mozu to better suit his assassin backstory, made from a modification of the Firespray

If this is a reskin of some existing ship then you should link the original in the write-up.

reskins have to have the same stats as the ship they are originally based on or have inferior stats.

cargo capacity on firespray is 5 not 25
consumables are 40 days not 3 months
