The BAT was Dr. Reekardoo's first attempt at a new fighter able to match the speed of the nebulon swarm fighters. Though only slightly slower than the Void fighter, it has two deadly AM-11 shield and armour piercing Karkoff-missiles, making it as deadly as a bomber. To improve itīs skills, a new experimental alloy was mixed with the titanium metasteel and an improved external force field was placed. making it invulnerable to many enemy runs. However as its production was lengthy and in fact the enemy could still outrun this fighter, only a few hundred were produced and handed to expert pilots among the ranks of GALAXY COMMAND. Soon after, tech developments gave room for the faster WISP. Though not as powerful nor as armor plated, this new starfighter proved to be the fastest vehicle in the known galaxy.
