The Artemis-class Starfighter manufactured by Koensayr was created with the intent of providing the Fel Imperium with a highly efficient starfighter early in its reign. In accordance with the other productions of the Fel Imperium's Naval Legion, it was created in conjunction with the Solar Spear-class Assault Barge and the Hades-class Gunship. The main feature of this pairing is the Artemis's magnetic underbelly for attaching to the rear of a Solar Spear-class Assault Barge. Though not required, most Imperium pilots allow their astromech droids to assist in the magnetic docking and extraction from the Solar Spear Barge.

The other features of the Artemis-class are fairly normal for a fighter of its style. It boasts a quad-firing mount of four forward facing heavy laser cannons, complemented with a pair of ion cannons for disabling electronics and shields. As for the heavier armament, it wields two warhead launchers, each carrying a complement of four proton torpedoes each.

The design of the Artemis-class is quite wide. Forward and rear attacks on them can be easily avoided, however aerial and hull assaults can devastate this fighter. If the attacker pierces the hull shielding, he can exploit the frame design of the Artemis-class and puncture the ordnance bay and score a direct hit.

A pretty standard elite fighter featuring a magnetic undersides for attachment to capital ships.
