The Saberfish was deployed by the Earth Federation Space Force for combat in outer space. With the landing gear retracted, it stood 6.9m tall, but with the landing gear extended, it reached a height of 7.1m. The Saberfish could be modified to fly at high altitudes in the atmosphere so as well as being a space fighter, it was also an air-to-air fighter. The Saberfish specialized in attacking by firing large numbers of missiles.
Six machine guns are built into the nose of the aircraft.
Detachable Container-Type Missile Launcher
On each of the space fighters' fuselages, these were mounted at four points on the top and bottom.
Special Equipment & Features
When the Saberfish needs to switch from atmospheric flight to space flight, these provide nimble maneuvering allowing it to provide anti-air protection for spaceships.
FF-3F Saberfish space fighters were present during the capture of Von Braun by Maj. Gen. Kycilia Zabi's mobile suit assault force on January 3. As another fighter flew past, one in particular engaged MS-05S Char's Zaku I with its many missiles. Char quickly dealt heavy damage to its port side and then it exploded.
Battle of Loum
FF-3F Saberfish space fighters also saw action at the Battle of Loum on January 15.
