Crimson Dagger


The Crimson Dagger, was a custom built starfighter based on the Eta-2, called the Eta-2.5 Aeternus interceptor. After nearly 100 years the ship was refit into a custom variant of the Vindicator-class. Built specifically for Kev-Mas Colcha when he was a Jedi Knight of the Old Republic and was eventually used by his Descendant of the same name. Its seen many battles in its years, several paint jobs and 2 refits as well.

HistoryEdit

CreationEdit

The Crimson Dagger began its life as a standard Eta-2, assigned to Kev-Mas by the Jedi Order. Before the Jedi Purge happened, it was hidden in a cave on Kashyyyk by Kev-Mas, who then recovered it after pledging alliegiance to Emperor Palpatine, and becoming an Emperor's Shadow Guard.

Eta-2.5Edit

After Kev-Mas started the Pirates of the Twilight in 10 ABY, he made several modifications to the fighter, making it the prototype for the Eta-2.5.

Vindicator RefitEdit

Long after Kev-Mas Colcha, in the hands of his grandson, Leonias Colcha in 95 ABY, the ship was refitted into a custom variant of the Vindicator-class. Being of a much more streamlined design than the previous refit it was capable of much higher speeds in atmospheric conditions, and the newer S-foil arrangement allowed for a something known as 'slipstreaming.'

When the foils are closed, it creates a slipstream effect around the Crimson Dagger pushing the air out of the fighters way before it actually touches it allowing it to reach much higher speeds. And When the S-foils open, it increases air resistance allowing for higher mobility in dogfights.

During Vacuum operations, when the S-foils are closed the unit can obtain its top-speed of 180mglt while boosting. While the S-foils are closed however only the forward mounted laser cannons can operate because the other weapons could risk damaging the ship at top speed. With the S-foils open more maneuvering thrusters are exposed allowing for better maneuverability but inhibiting maximum burn potential.

The QuadFusion Reactor equipped to the Crimson Dagger was an experimental model. It was roughly 75% larger than a standard starfighter reactor, and operated at a state of controlled overload in combat situations. This was needed in order for the Crimson Dagger to operate for extended periods of time (up to 1 week), due to the extensive weapons systems onboard. This came at a downside though, the ships power signature during combat was that of ship 5 times its size. Any military grade sensor system, would be able to track the Crimson Dagger while the ship operated at its full potential.
