The Stiletto-Class Fighter is the basic air and space fighter of the Federation Fleet. Stiletto Fighters can be seen hovering near the G.F.S. Olympus towards the beginning of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.

Later in the game, damaged Stiletto Fighters can be seen among the wreckage of the G.F.S. Valhalla. The first time Samus sees a Stiletto Fighter in action is on the initial Galactic Federation invasion on the Space Pirate Homeworld. They are transported throughout larger vessels on a system of conveyor belts, and launched from them in the docking bays.

They bear some resemblance to Samus's ship in Metroid Fusion, possibly because that ship was built using Federation technology.

Many Stiletto-Class Fighters were deployed at Norion against a surprise Space Pirate attack. The only other known instance that the Stiletto-Class Fighters were deployed in large numbers was during the Horus Rebellion, which was also implied to have resulted in multiple casualties on the Federation's end.

Logbook entry

As the newest GF fighter, the Stiletto is used in the entire fleet, and replaces the outdated Cestus-class predecessor.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.
