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.
