The Vector is the standard light fighter of the Kiowan pirate clan. It is one of the most common light fighters in the Tri-System, and is also the least effective. Kiowan design ethic shies away from quality fighters, and instead focuses on building masses of inferior ships. The Vector follows this design philosophy to a T.



Origin's Official Guide to Privateer 2: The Darkening

Vectors are big, slow and dumb. It shouldn't be too difficult to get behind one and attack from the rear, and they are really easy to hit because they are so big. They're not at all hard to kill.
