Technical and Historical Notes

 

The FF-S3 Saberfish is designed by the Hervic Company to be a high speed space fighter similar to the FF-X7 Core Fighter. However, the Saberfish is also capable of functioning in Earth's atmosphere. The Saberfish is designed to be docked and launched from the hulls of Salamis and Magellan class battleships. The Saberfish's armament consists of four machine guns, as well as six missile launchers, which give it firepower similar to a mobile suit. The Saberfish remains in service as late as UC 0096 and sees combat during the Gryps Conflict of UC 0087 when the AEUG attack the Titans supply base in Jaburo, South America. However, this antiquated fighter's abilities don't come close to matching that of the AEUG's modern mobile suits. Saberfish fighters are also stationed at Australia's Torrington Base in UC 0096, but are destroyed from above by a MS-05L Zaku I Sniper Type before ever being able to launch.
