S-21 Eclipse

The S-21 Eclipse starfighter was part of the Rebellion's scientific research program for many years. This particular craft has rarely been used because of its high maintenance costs and resource limitations.

The S-21 is considered an advanced craft due to its ability to manipulate the sensor readings of enemy ships, invoking a -2D penalty to any Sensors checks for anyone attempting to locate the ship. This ability was proven when a squadron of S-21 fighters was able to infiltrate an Imperial facility during festivities undetected and cause mass destruction.
