The Vanduul Scythe (UEE designation) is a medium fighter that appears in every Vanduul raid. There is not a single allowance for comfort, cargo or anything that would dilute the ship's function as a dedicated dogfighter. Featuring a hefty weapons payload, the Scythe's real asset is its maneuverability, found in the twin main and twelve maneuvering thrusters.[1][2]
