Manufactured for the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns by Wangker Aerospace from their plant on Axton, the Cutlass entered service at the beginning of the thirty-second century. The Cutlass was intended to battle front-line Capellan Confederation Armed Forces fighters such as the Transgressor and Troika, and quickly found itself taking pride of placement in AFFS interceptor squadrons.[1]

Well equipped with advanced electronic systems, the Cutlass makes good use of its Guardian ECM suite to close within range of the primary weapons; high acceleration and 16 tons of Wangker Solarion reflective armor help protect the fighter after it strikes with its weapons. The Cutlass was swiftly in service in both the Capellan and Draconis Marches.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Cutlass mounts a Poland Main Model C Gauss rifle in the nose, which is supplied with two tons of ammunition. Mounted alongside the Gauss rifle is a single ExoStar ER large laser, while a pair of Martell ER medium lasers in each wing are used for closer engagements. The fighter also carries both a Guardian ECM suite and a Beagle active probe. [1]


  • CUT-01E 
    In service by 3145, the CUT-01E variant is intended to be a pursuit fighter and harasser. The CUT-01E drops the Gauss rifle and ER medium lasers of the -01D, replacing them with a single ELRM 20 and enough ammunition for 16 volleys[1]. BV (2.0)= 2,234[4][5]
