As the newest GF fighter, the Stiletto is used in the entire fleet, and replaces the outdated Cestus-class predecessor. Compared with the Cestus, Stilettos have twice the cargo capacity and armor strength, made possible by a revolutionary new propulsion system. Only the Fang-class, a superior fighter recently developed by the Space Pirates, can compete with the Stiletto.
- A cestus, spelled caestus in the original Latin, is an ancient battle glove, sometimes used in pankration. In use, it is classical antiquity's equivalent to boxing gloves but with an entirely opposite effect.
