RipWings are nimble, small-sized aircraft used as the Society's main space and atmospheric fighters. They are fielded in huge numbers during space battles from larger cruisers and dreadnoughts. RipWings also perform policing and patrol duty for the Society on the ground.
The fighters are almost exclusively piloted by Blues, but squadrons are led by Golds in upgraded ripWings. RipWings are armed with chainguns and missiles, allowing them to do damage to capital ships, leechCraft, and other fighters. They are not very sturdy, but fielded in large numbers, with hundreds of RipWings in some hangar bays.
They're like 'bats glued together from shattered ebony.'
