A lightly and cheaply built interceptor similar to an F-16, Colonial Viper, or a Starfury, the Bodkin is an aggressively shaped configuration of RCS ports, cameras, rockets, beam weapons and projectile cannons built around a standing cockpit design and a GNOMES reactor. As part of the Astra air group, the Bodkin is used for patrol and escort duties, roles the Sabrosa fills with the more maintenance-intensive Banshee.
