The Straith is the cheapest fighter available on the private market in the Tri-System. Because of its low cost, Straiths are flown only by the most desperate of men - those generally willing to do anything for a quick credit. Count Perrymore once hired three Straiths to interrupt his duel with Baron Conrad Velder. Lev Arris (Vel Ricaud) flew a Straith when he first became a privateer. One of the Tri-System's most famous pilots, Monk Skungous, also flies a Straith.

The Straith entered service before 2777. Notable Straith include D234_231L (2779), E321_900S (2777) and K387_589K (classified).
