The Drakkar is a top-of-the line light fighter (sometimes classed as a Medium) flown by independant operators. The Tri-System's top ace, Liston Sativa, flies the ship. Beyond that, a number of notable celebrities fly Drakkars. Tamessa Ames, daughter of Senator Ames of Janus IV, used the fighter as her personal transport. On the other end of the spectrum, Scorpio, the madman who held ransom and killed Senator Noram Blagger's daughter, flew a Drakkar.

The Mutant Rights front makes extensive use of Drakkars - eight of their activists flew them in an operation to prevent Wilford Biologics from shipping mutbioforms and mutembryos for experimentation. Ordinary mercenaries fly Drakkars as well. A pair of the fighters defended a convoy of refugees traveling from Hephaestus to Anhur. The convoy was found to be carrying weapons to Karatikus, and was attacked in an operation planned by Lord Mike Vonx. The Drakkar pilots opted to defend only the transports carrying passengers.

The Drakkar entered service before 2776. Notable Drakkars include D093_356O (2784), F395_643I (2777) and M756_654G. M756_654G had its license revoked following its reported involvement in a hit and run incident near Hades.
