The S-14 Baselard Space Striker is an assault fighter utilized by the United Nations Space Command Navy.[2]

Specifications[edit]

S-14 Baselards are small fighter craft, being crewed by two individuals, though they may also be remotely piloted.[1][2] They are relatively wedge-shaped and have a tail and two-meter wide thrust nozzle pointing aft.[1] When not in use, Baselards rest on retractable struts and may be carried by a Point Blank-class stealth cruiser.[1][2] A Baselard is armed with two M42 Archer missiles and a pair of twin rotary cannons which are effective great distances.[1] On at least one occasion, the Archer missiles were replaced by pods full of chain-linked debris in order to camouflage extra-vehicular activity.[2]

Operational history[edit]

S-14 Baselards were deployed from the UNSC Vanishing Point on March 26, 2526, during an action against the Covenant at the recently-glassed colony of Etalan.[2] Four of the fighters were crewed by the Spartan-IIs of Gold and Green Teams.[1][2]

Trivia[edit]

A baselard is a type of dagger or short sword primarily used in Europe during the Late Middle Ages.
