Story by www.babylon5.wikia :
Derived mainly from the SA-23E Mitchell-Hyundyne Starfury, the Stealth Starfury is far more rare and very expensive to produce.
Outfitted as a fast interceptor and featuring some of Earthforce's most advanced stealth components, information on this model of Starfury is not widely distributed by Earthforce.The Psi Corps maintained a squadron of these fighters called "Black Omega" and was formed under the supervision of the Psi Cop Alfred Bester
A Starfury carries a standard armament of four forward-firing Copeland JC466/A Pulse Discharge Cannons and two Copeland JC44 Pulse Discharge cannons with an additional eight external hard-points on the engine pylons to allow additional payloads such as missiles or slug tanks.
A retractable grappling claw is housed in the ventral hull for towing with a corresponding hitch-point located on the ventral aft tail.
Mk2 Starfuries are highly maneuverable, unmatched among the younger races (even the Minbari acknowledging that in this one area they are outclassed), with the ability to spin 180 degrees in under a second. They are also the only fighter craft capable of flying backward at nearly the same speed they can fly forward. Because of its maneuverability, the cockpit is located in the center of the craft thereby minimizing any stress and disorientation for the pilot from high-G turns. Combined with the heavy weapon load, the Starfury is one of the most impressive of the younger race fighter craft able, to outmatch most comparable alien fighters. The Minbari Nial class fighter is a notable exception; while outclassed in raw maneuverability, the Minbari fighter is superior in all other areas, a fact driven painfully home during the Earth-Minbari War.
Ingress for the pilot is though a dorsal pressure hatch, usually accessible via a gantry while the Fury is locked into its launch cradle. Once inside the pilot is strapped in an upright, bent legged position and as a rule wears a full pressure suit to safeguard against cockpit breaches. The entire cockpit also acts as an escape pod that can be ejected during combat, potentially saving a stricken pilot from the craft's destruction and enabling them to be retrieved later by a rescue and recovery craft.
