The Cloakshape is an outdated space and atmospheric fighter that is found in use on backwater worlds and in pirate arsenals. It has no hyperdrive unless equipped with one and lacks shields. It is also used as a system patrol craft, smuggler blockade vessels and anti piracy actions. They have a descent atmospheric performance but are unsuitable for deep space combat. Their simple design allows them to be equipped with many aftermarket designs (like larger fuel capacity, heavier weapons and powerful thrusters). The most common add-on is the Curich Engineering's rear wing and stabalizer conversion kit, which since is such a common sight on these fighters few people realize that it isn't a part of the original design.
