Leighats are decidedly the Tri-System’s inferior medium fighter. Produced by the Kiowan pirate clan, these fighters are neither much to look at nor much of a threat. Aging Leighat fighters are the clan’s most common platform for complex mission assignments, but they rarely see much success except when deployed in large numbers.

Behind the Screens

The Leighat is a reskin of the Shaman model (and vice-versa). Aside from a palette shift, the major difference is the replacement of the Shaman's nose texture with an aggressive bird face.
