The Icarus is a mid-range civilian heavy fighter which is primarily flown by independant operators. Icarus' pilots run the gamut. On one side, one of the finest pilots in the Tri-System, Orpheus, flies an Icarus. On the other, Youri Halargin, a corporate spy, posed as Kraven Technologies' Kain Borman by flying one. The Icarus is also the fighter of choice for Pablo Donerkiel of the Tri-System League of Hunters.

The Icarus entered service before 2686. Notable Icaruses include K376_351S (2787), which received a four year ban on travel in the Irrulan System due to traffic violations, R365_211S (2786), E122_343D (2788) and G457_745H (2789). Another Icarus, S234_421A, is the corporate transport for McReady Medical.
