The Aurora is a mid-range civilian light fighter that is frequently used by low-level mercenaries. Notably, Wilford Biologics hired a pair of Aurorae to defend shipments against Mutant Rights Activists. The Aurora also serves in a corporate role: Arl Shoeyer owned three Aurorae as executive transports. Local planetary governments often maintain individual Aurorae for service as escort leaders. Aurorae have seen less legitimate service, as well: Good Ol' Boys Haulage, a front for a pirate organisation, maintained an Aurora as part of its arsenal.

The Aurora is the fighter of choice for three of the Tri-System's most well known pilots: Delphinius, Pinet El-Susse and Bruiser McDoozer. Ralph McCloud, who provided Lev Arris with the Kraven Mk. IV laser, flew an Aurora.

The Aurora entered service before 2779. Notable Aurorae include F465_673F, G534_467J and V465_352L.
