The Gryphon G-1 is an elegant multi-role starfighter. The ship is compact, responsive, adaptable, and can be flown by an Incarnate or Organic pilot.
The Gryphon handles like a science ninja, and many ace pilots have made their name piloting a G-1. The ship is fast, nimble, and has a Void Slip Inducer for blinking and dodging. The controls are smooth and the weapons systems are symmetrical and perfectly aligned so that shooting is natural and doesn’t affect flight.
While the Gryphon is capable of atmospheric flight, most pilots would rather not take this starfighter planetside. The Gryphon handles somewhat poorly in atmosphere, and re-entry tends to mar the proprietary (and expensive) anti-ion coating.
