A new medium fighter design implemented by the Royal Research Eunuchs, the Hatchet fighter is a wondrous vessel. Designed around one of the most advanced predictive computers in the galaxy, the Hatchet fighter is able to outwit and outfly almost any computer AI yet designed by the Earth Science Directorate and its AI council. It was only with the reintroduction of late 20th century combat tactics by Capt. Buck Rogers that allowed the Hatchet's superior combat abilities to be thwarted by Earth Directorate pilots using the Thunderfighter. However, the ships have made their mark in combats against the Saurian Totality and Cyngnius Facade, both of whom also experimented - and discarded - computer automated fighters. 
The Advanced Tactical Computer can analyze and dissect weaknesses of any other computer flown system.
