The F-71 Stiletto is a class of Terran Confederation light fighter. The Stiletto once held the record for fastest ship in the fleet. Gabriel Quentin wrote about the spaeccraft in GEMINI SECTOR: AN OVERVIEW.

In 2669, a wing of three Stiletto and two Broadswords intercepted Grayson Burrows as he was attempting to smuggle a shipment of Brilliance to New Constantinople for Tayla. Later, two wings of three Stiletto attempted to prevent him from transporting Regis to Castor. In 2670, two Stiletto were part of Commodore Uhler's force responsible for securing Blockade Point Alpha.

Wing Commander Privateer Player's Guide


The Stiletto is the fastest ship in the Confederation fleet. With an afterburner velocity of 1400 kps and excellent maneuverability, it can evade even the swiftest Kilrathi fighters. The Stiletto's weakness lies in its extremely flimsy armor and relatively light weapons loadout. If you encounter an experienced pilot in a Stiletto, however, you should prepare for grueling combat because his high maneuverability lets him get uncomfortably close.


Behind the Screens

The Stiletto was designed for Wing Commander Privateer but it was first seen in Origin FX.

The Stiletto was originally to be named Dagger.

A unique piece of debris was created for the Stiletto but it was not included in the final release of Wing Commander Privateer.

HCl has created Stiletto Patch, a fan patch that allows players to fly the Stiletto in Privateer.
