The FF-S5 Raven Sword was a space fighter produced by the Earth Federation Forces in UC 0080 following the end of the One Year War. The Raven Sword was based on the FF-X7 Core Fighter that functioned as part of the Core Block System for various mobile suits. However, because the Raven Sword was a standalone craft, it lacked the transformation functions of the Core Fighter. The Raven Sword’s armaments included four 30mm machine guns and two missile launchers. An atmospheric version (FF-S5C) and a two-seater version (FF-S5D) were also produced. The Raven Sword was retired from operation in UC 0084.
