The Vakar Starfighter represents a major leap in fighter construction for the Circasian Empire. The first fighter design to mount two ultralight particle beams, the Vakar also boasts a pair of improved engines that increase overall thrust. New fire control computers and tactical display system were also installed in the Vakar. These improvements made the Vakar Starfighter a significant improvement over older fighter designs.
The Vakar Starfighter remained the primary fighter in the Star Forces until the development of the Istale Light Fighter. The Vakar participated in combat actions throughout the Circasian raider wars and were well regarded by Circasian pilots who valued their sturdiness and dependability.
