Origin's Official Guide to Wing Commander Prophecy

Every fleet has its all-purpose ship, and the Moray is the jack-of-all-trades for the Aliens. They employ this ship in a variety of roles, but the most common is as an anti-fighter.

Similar to the Confed Tigershark, the Kilrathi Dralthi, or the last generation of Hellcats, this is conceivably the most used fighter in the Alien fleet. It is a swift fighter, maneuverable enough to get and hold a lock on a target. The Moray's most notable feature is its maneuverability. It has a relatively high yaw rate, and it tends tooward turning maneuvers, turn-and-burns, sit-and-spins, and slides.

The Moray is also deadly enough to hold its own in a pitched dogfight, and durable enouogh to take a few hits without popping. Its shields and armor have been somewhat pared back to make it more maneuverable, so it tends to rely on turns and slides to break enemy locks, and also fly in "teams." These teams are not "swarm"- or "cluster"-based, however, and share no integral power systems or strategy.

Maneuvers: Because of its relatively high yaw rate, Moray pilots tend to do a lot of turning maneuvers, burn & turn, Shelton slide, sit & spin.
