HISTORY

The Bloodfang is, simply put, the finest starfighter ever fielded by the Empire of Kilrah. Designed and continously revised only for the personal use of Crown Prince Thrakhath nar Kiranka and his elite guards, the Bloodfangs very existence represents a completely alien way of thinking. For the Kilrathi, the expense and difficulty of developing and producing a fighter in such small numbers is fully justified; Lord Thrakhath is their military leader and finest pilot, and it stands to reason that he deserves a weapon representative of his stature. For its human counterparts, the Bloodfang was a confusing threat that should by all rights appear in full scale service at any moment. In fact, Capt. Christopher Blair's 2667 encounter with a Bloodfang lead directly to the initial design specification for the Excalibur-class fighter. (A version of the Bloodfang actually entered service over a decade earlier; it simply never saw combat and therefore was unknown to the Confederation before the destruction of K'Tithrak Mang).

Bloodfangs served from the mid-2650s to the end of the war. They were flown only by Prince Thrakhath and members of the elite Blood Most Noble squadron. Only three Bloodfangs were ever reported lost: two in personal combat with Col. Blair and a third in a hard landing on a human colony (the pilot survived the landing only to be killed by a local laborer; the fighter was never recovered).
